In recent years, scientists and development specialist have discovered many previously neglected nitrogen-fixing trees with exciting potential to sustain and improve the oil, enhance crop production and provide valuable products.  Prominent among the trees attracting increasing attention is the genus Erythrina, distributed throughout the tropics.  Many of the 113 Erythrina species are used in agroforestry systems as live fences, windbreaks, shade or support for other plants.  They improve the soil and provide animal fodder, human food, medicine and wood products.
