T HE VELVETBEAN, a summer annual, in recent years
has become an important factor in the development of
the livestock industry and as a soil-improving crop in the
Southern States. As the feeding value is not seriously
reduced by exposure in the field during the winter months,
it is a valuable plant for grazing from late fall until early
spring. The seeds have a high feeding value and are of
importance as a concentrated feed, while the leaves and
vines afford good roughage. A mixture of velvetbeans
and corn silage is regarded as a better feed than silage from
corn alone. For soil improvement, especially on sandy
soils, the velvetbean is one of the best crops, giving heavy
yields at low- cost.
