Tropical Forages: An Interactive Selection Tool

Andrea_Jimenez's picture

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.

This site requires a Java Virtual Machine(JVM) installation to use the forage 'Selection Tool'. Or else, the Tropical Forages 'home page' allows for easy access to the information without necessarily entering the selection tool. The indications are clear and easy to follow.
