Abstract

Investigations with Barrel Medic (Medicago tribuloides) have indicated that this has a wide range of usefulness as a leguminous pastoral plant for the heavier soils those areas receiving less than 18 inches of rainfall annually There has been a continued emphasis on improved pasture as the basis for better and more productive rotations and the outstanding part played by subterranean clover in utilising large areas of light sandplain in the higher rainfall districts is well known. Barrel medic (or Barrel Clover as it is sometimes called) should fill a somewhat similar position under the conditions for which it is suited.
