Where nursery seedlings are used, plantable size is attained in 3 months.EROSION CONTROL: Hedgerows in alley cropping serve to suppress weed growth and control erosion .FODDER: Gliricidia sepium leaves are rich in protein and highly digestible There is evidence of improved animal production (both milk and meat) in large and small ruminants when G. sepium is used as a supplement. APICULTURE: The flowers attract honeybees (Apis spp.), hence it is an important species for honey production.SHADE OR SHELTER: Gliricidia sepium is widely cultivated as shade for perennial crops (tea, coffee and cocoa).
