      Thanks Rajuji. True - I had put white clover and it didn't even germinate. Sun hemp is 
      growing good with the rain and if left undisturbed reseeds and comes back and looks good 
      for my coconut trees. But planning to grow cow pea in the next season, since it provides some food also.

      I am trying to experiment with Arachis Pintoi (Wild peanut) and Desmodium Scorpiurus for
      growing rice.

      Regards,
      Nandan

      Dear Nanadan,
      White clover is not suitable in warm condition. Sun hemp is O.K. is
      available in Ratlam at the rate of
      Rs 40 per kg.
      Thanks
      Raju
