The suitability of temperate forage legumes for adverse physical conditions is considered. The ability of the major forage legumes i.e. lucerne, white and red clover and birdsfoot trefoil and the 'minor' species, many originating from Mediterranean-type climatic zones, to withstand soil acidity,...
