The Tropical Forages: An Interactive Selection Tool is a collaborative effort between CSIRO Sustainable Ecosystems, Department of Primary Industries & Fisheries (Qld), International Center for Tropical Agritculture (CIAT) and the International Livestock Research Institute (ILRI).
Through this platform, users interested in agriculture and improving animal production will be able to:
- Identify forage species suitable for your climate, soils, production system and management via a selection tool built on LUCID™.
- Access comprehensive information on these species with details of adaptation, uses and management of forage species, cultivars and elite accessions.
- View images of the plants and their use.
- Search a comprehensive database of scientific references with abstracts.
