    Virender Kumar, Jagdish K. Ladha, in Advances in Agronomy, Sesbania coculture. Sesbania is a legume used as a green manure in rice cultivation either as pre-rice or an inter- or mixed crop with rice (Singh et al., b).It is sown at 25 kg ha − 1 together with rice. After 25–30 days of growth, when Sesbania is about 30–40 cm tall, it is killed with 2,4-D ester at kg. College of Agriculture and Environmental Sciences, Bahir Dar University, P.O. Box , Bahir Dar, Ethiopia. Accepted 29 July, Sesbania sesban (L.) Merrill is the most productive multipurpose tree widely distributed in tropics and subtropics; and usually planted by smallholder farmers mostly for its fodder and soil improvement values.

    Overview. This handbook of locally based agricultural practices brings together the best of science and farmer experimentation, vividly illustrating the enormous diversity of shifting cultivation systems as well as the power of human ingenuity. Environmentalists have tended to disparage shifting cultivation (sometimes called 'swidden cultivation' or 'slash-and-burn agriculture') as unsustainable due to its supposed role in .

Merr., a fast‐growing N 2 ‐fixing tree, with maize (Zea mays L.) has potential for increasing fertility of tropical soils, where fertilizer use by resource‐poor farmers is limited. At two sites in Kenya (Ochinga, with a Kandiudalfic Eutrudox soil, and Muange, with a Kandic Paleustalf), we compared maize yields and financial returns for (i) sesbania grown.

Additional Physical Format: Online version: Evans, D.O. (Dale Ordway), Sesbania in agriculture. Boulder, Colo.: Westview Press, (OCoLC) Synopsis Sesbania, a member of the legume family, has been the object of study in new efforts to discover, conserve, and use plant genetic resources.

This volume brings together the most recent research on the subject and combines it with previous studies and an extensive review of the literature.

Sesbania in agriculture. The chapters in this book cover the use of Sesbania species as green manures for rice and upland crops, other agricultural uses (shade, fodder Sesbania in agriculture book, use for pulp, gum, soil and reclamation, and uses in folklore and by: Bigpod sesbania is a semi-woody, native, perennial where it can be grown yearlong in frost-free zones or as an annual warm-season legume where it is frost-killed.

It has smooth, green, tapering stems that become woody with age. Evans DO and Rotar PP. Sesbania in Agriculture. Westview Tropical Agriculture Series No. Westview Press, Boulder, Co, USA. Traditionally bigpod sesbania has been used in rotations with vegetable or grain crops.

Over a 5-year period the yield of a barley crop was increased by preceding it with bigpod sesbania (Evans and Rotar, ). When used in rotations it is recommended to terminate bigpod sesbania early, after 6–9 weeks of growth and before seed-set to.

Sesbania is a legume widely useful in agriculture. A researcher in Sesbania in agriculture book Sri Lankan national agricultural research system began screening a number of green manure crops for biomass production and N-content.

Sesbania rostrata stood out among the species that were screened (others included S. sesban, S. aculeata, Crotalaria juncea and C. caricia). Sesbania herbacea is an erect, large, succulent-stemmed, open-branched plant with few, wide-spreading branches, it can grow 70 - cm tall.

An annual in regions with frosts, it is a herbaceous perennial to sub-shrub in the tropics [ Illustrated Flora of North Central Texas. The book contains six chapters, each focusing on a particular topic. The first chapter, “General conditions for cultivation of crops”, talks about the basic needs of farmers and farming sector, by providing basic knowledge on Good Agricultural Practices (GAP), enhancing the awareness of farmers on critical factors.

Sustainable rural development demands a balanced and a holistic approach in devising an actionable rural sector strategy. In the article, an overview of agriculture; its role in the economy. Several Sesbania species are used for various agricultural purposes including nitrogen fixation, fodder and as a green leaf manure (Evans and Rotar, ) so there are risks that weedy perennial species, including S.

punicea, may be inadvertently introduced into agricultural lands during such operations and thus become problematic. BibTeX @ARTICLE{Evans87sesbaniain, author = {James W.

Sesbania is a genus in the family Leguminosae that has been widely used by people in tropical and subtropical regions, especially in Southeast Asia.

Information about Sesbania uses and their characteristics such as chemical compounds were obtained from papers, reports and books.

We found evidence for 22 Sesbania species being used. They were used for human food (10 species). Sesbania cannabina Sesbania is a genus of flowering plants in the pea family, Fabaceae, and the only genus found in tribe Sesbanieae.

Riverhemp is a common name for plants in this genus. Notable species include the rattlebox (Sesbania punicea), spiny sesbania (Sesbania bispinosa), and Sesbania sesban, which is used in cooking.Sesbania prefers wet, highly disturbed habitats and sandy sites.

It occurs in low sandy fields, sand bars of streams, alluvial ground along sloughs and borders of oxbow lakes, and along roadsides, railroads, in disturbed urban sites, and agricultural areas.
