An introductory guide to sources of traditional fodder and forage and usage

United Nations Environment Programme (2014)

This illustrated Field Guide is intended to introduce field workers and project managers, as well as those generally interested in the rural development of Afghanistan, to the field crops and wild plants on which farming and pastoral families feed their livestock, particularly through the winter. These crops and plants are cultivated, grazed and gathered as part of closely integrated traditional, but adaptive and resilient farming and pastoral systems. This guide is aimed at introducing teachers, students, field workers and managers to both the cultivated crops and wild fodder and forage plants that contribute to these often complex systems. IT should provide interesting and instructive to field students, extension officers, amateur botanists, community leaders and field project managers everywhere.
