Pigeon pea is a wonderful plant. Not only is it a perennial cover crop, protecting our soil through the dry season, its leaves are high in nitrogen and can be used as topdressing, by burying a handful of leaves next to the maize plant. The maize on our demo plot responded well to the application of pigeon pea leaves to the crop and has reduced our dependency on urea.
