This bulletin deals with the effective use of seeded forages in agricultural systems for the tropics and subtropics.  Superior forage grasses and legumes are available for seeded plantings that may be included in crop rotations for the sake of maintaining soil productivity, and which also provide feeds for livestock enterprises.  The exploitation of these opportunities will give agriculture new dimensions for increased productivity. The essential information is now available, but it must be more widely disseminated and put in use to capitalize on potential benefits.  The information contained herein is intended to facilitate progress in these directions.
