New Forage to Boost Brazil's Sheep Grazing

09 October 2014

BRAZIL – Three new forage legumes are set to increase sheep production across southern Brazil, say plant scientists ahead of a technology and information drive.

The Brazilian Corporation of Agricultural Research (EMBRAPA) has presented Trevo Branco, Trevo Vesiculoso and Cormichao this summer for cultivated rangeland.

Also known as White Cover, Birdsfoot Trefoil, and Picket Arrowleaf Clover, the cultivars are a product of joint research with the Rio Grande do Sul University and the South Brazilian Association for Advancement of Forage Research.
