IN December, 1952, an article was published in this Journal drawing attention to the potential value of white flowered tree lucerne (Cytisus prolifer) as a source of nutritious green fodder during the dry summer months.
Figures were quoted to show that heavy yields could be obtained year after year with very little effort, and no outlay other than for fertiliser.
The advantages to be gained from the cultivation of this tree were made very apparent and many farmers set out to grow the shrub.
