Six species of tropical legume (Desmodium intortum cv. Greenleaf, D. Canum CQ1781, Arachis pintoi cv. Amarillo, Macrotyloma axillare cv. Archer, Vigna luteola cv. Dalrymple and Calopogonium mucunoides 43428) were tested for dry matter production under four levels of light (37%, 24% and 16% of the unshaded control). Photosynthetic light response curves were also determined for plants from the 100% and 16% light intensities. Overall C. mucunoides displayed the greatest adaptation to low light levels, consistently producing comparatively high yields of dry matter under reduced light levels, with D. intortum also showing promise for use under shaded conditions.
