Legume Feed Crops Grown in
Florida

By JOHN M. SCOTT

VELVET BEANS
Stizolobium deeringianum Bort
THE velvet bean has been known and grown in Flor-
ida for nearly fifty years, and during the last thirty
years it has been grown on a commercial scale. From
about 1912 to 1916 a large acreage was grown for seed
production, as there was considerable demand for seed
in Mississippi, Alabama, Georgia, and South Carolina at
that time. Since then farmers in the above Southern
States have to a large extent produced their own seed.
During the past ten years a considerable amount of
velvet beans have been used in mixed dairy feeds, but at
the present time nearly the entire crop is grown as a soil
improving crop or as feed to be grazed by cattle during
late fall and winter.
The following is a botanical description of the plant
by Katherine Stephens Bort, taken from Bulletin 141 of
the Bureau of Plant Industry, United States Department
of Agriculture.
"Stizolobium deeringianum Bort.-An annual, her-
baceous, climbing vine sometimes 20 meters in length
when growing on supports, and even on the ground at-
taining a length of from 2 to 6 meters, bearing long, pen-
dent racemes of purple flowers which produce dark,
velvety pods 5 or 6 centimeters long. Stems rather slen-
der, terete, sparsely pubescent, with white appressed
hairs, especially on the ridges. Petioles equalling or ex-
ceeding the leaflets, pubescent like the stem, and con-
tinued for 2 to 4 centimeters beyond the lateral leaflets;
stipules subulate, pubescent, about 1 centimeter long;
stipels similar but smaller; petiolules about 5 millimeters
longs, stout, very pubescent. Leaflets rhomboid-ovate,
the lateral ones oblique, membranaceous, acuminate-
cuspidate, 5 to 15 centimeters long, about half as broad,
sparsely pubescent above, especially on the veins, more
densely pubescent beneath, the white hairs closely ap-
pressed. Inflorescence a raceme or thyrsus 15 to 30 cen-
timeters long, pendent, bearing 5 to 30 flowers, usually
about 12.; rachis like the stem. but more pubescent;
flowers borne singly or in twos or threes on short lateral
branchlets. Bracts lanceolate-subulate, very pubescent,
