Lablab Purpureus
An excellent legume and can be used for human or livestock consumption. Lablab is a dual-purpose legume. It is traditionally grown as a pulse crop for human consumption in south and southeast Asia and eastern Africa. Flowers and immature pods also used as a vegetable. It is also used as a fodder legume sown for grazing and conservation in broad-acre agricultural systems in tropical environments with a summer rainfall. Also used as green manure, cover crop and in cut-and-carry systems and as a concentrate feed. It can be incorporated into cereal cropping systems as a legume to address soil fertility decline and is used as an intercrop species with maize to provide better legume/stover feed quality. As a dual purpose (human food and animal feed) legume , it is sown as a monoculture or in intercrop systems.

Known as:
Hyacinth bean, lablab bean, field bean, pig-ears, rongai dolichos, lab-lab bean, poor man’s bean, Tonga bean (English); dolique lab-lab, dolique d’Egypte, frijol jacinto, quiquaqua, caroata chwata, poroto de Egipto, chicarros, frijol caballo, gallinita, frijol de adorno, carmelita, frijol caballero, pois nourrice (Spanish); faselbohne, helmbohne, schlangenbohne, batao, wal, sem, lubia (the Sudan); fiwi bean (Zambia); antaque, banner bean (Caribbean); wal (India); batao (Philippines); natoba, toba (Fiji); pois Antaque; pois de Senteur, tapirucusu.

Macroptilium Atropurpureum
A must have versatile legume with nitrogen benefits and mainly used for permanent and short-term pastures. While best suited to grazing, it can also be used for cut-and-carry or conserved as hay (usually with an associated grass), although the twining habit can make harvesting difficult. It is also used for soil conservation (re-vegetation/stabilisation of earthworks in cuttings and on embankments), and as a cover crop, fallow crop (including after lowland rice), or as a forage crop sown with upland rice. Its value as a protein bank for dry season feeding is reduced by its tendency to drop leaf under very dry conditions.

When used as a short-term ley legume in sorghum crops, the nitrogen benefit can persist for up to 3 crops of sorghum. However, large populations of the twining legume can regenerate from hard seed in the soil, creating difficulties in grain harvest.protein reduces with age)
