A. A. Aganga and S. O. Tshwenyane

Abstract:
An overview is given of three legume pastures with potentials as sources of crude protein and other important nutrients for livestock production in Botswana. This paper reviews distribution, plant description, agronomic characteristics, chemical composition and utilization in livestock production of Lucerne, lablab and L. leucocephala.
