Local name: Kudzu
It has an excellent coverage. Best adapted to a warm, moist climate but, because of the stored plant food in the roots, can withstand protracted drought when once established. Kudzu is a fast- growing plant and produces long, prostrate branches which root at many of the joints if the soil is moist and contact good. New plants are established in this manner. It takes one year to establish. Quite a useful forage, retaining its palatability throughout the growing season, but new pasture legumes are
likely to replace it for grazing purposes. Two cuttings can be taken in a year. It contains 20-22% protein. Observations showed that it is not highly palatable to livestock.
