AbstractEvaluates the use of Chamaecrista species, including C. nictitans, for soil stabilization and forage in China. Two accessions of C. nictitans were identified as possibilities for cut-and-carry forage due to high yield, ability to re-establish from seed, rapid nodulation, and winter survival at one site.
