Project final report
Forage legumes for supplementing village pigs in Lao PDR - Final report
This project aimed to facilitate farmers' access to improved legume-based pig feeding strategies that would increase the financial returns from smallholder pig production in Laos. Outcomes of this project included:
- Improved the capacity of development practitioners to scale-out the use of Stylo 184 and other forage legumes as high-quality supplements to protein deficient, traditional pig diets in smallholder farming systems.
- Improved the survival and growth of piglets in smallholder production systems through improved protein nutrition derived from forage and dual-purpose legumes.
