Legumes are a diverse class of plants that include many species important in agronomic systems. They are grown in Texas as seed, forage, hay, cover, and green manure crops. Beyond their production value, a primary benefit agricultural producers hope to gain from planting legumes is biological nitrogen fixation, which can be a key source of nitrogen in agronomic production systems. Though much of the information in this publication is applicable to any legume, this publication focuses on the management of cool-season legumes and provides actual data on nitrogen fixation by cool-season legumes in the Texas Rolling Plains region.
