We offer Leucaena seeds suitable for reforestation, livestock feed, paper making, fuelwood, electricity generation, green manure
WHAT IS LEUCAENA?
Leucaena Seeds Are Availalbe in Large Quantities.8 pounds of seeds are needed to plant each acre.
In additiion to seeds we supply complete consultancy for plantation development processing and marketing

Leucaena is a fast growing nitrogen fixing tree (FGNFT) with many uses. originated in Central America and grows in many places in the tropics. Because it fixes unusable nitrogen from the air and makes it useful to itself, other plants. and animals, it is extremely valuable to the environment. With its many varieties, Leucaena can produce nutritive forage (especially good for dairy and beef cattle, goats, and water buffalos).
It has multiple uses and is suitable for firewood, timber, charcoal, fence posts and rich organic fertilizer. It diverse uses in the tropics include use in tropical reforestation, revegetation of eroded hillsides and slopes. windbreaks, shade and nurse trees for tropical crops, and as an ornamental. It most useful future use will likely be usage in carbon sequestration against global warming. Leucaena grows in both the tall tree type and small bushy weedy type.
