Relevant literature regarding leucaena as a fallow improvement crop is reviewed and a comparison made between potential nutrient contributions of leucaena and actual nutrient contributions under other tropical secondary forest fallows. A description of a leucaena-based fallow system used in the Philippines is also presented.
