      Here in Paraguay some cattle producers grow leucaena.  It is a little toxic,
      so they introduce in the stomach of the cows a bacteria (?) that destroy the
      toxicity.

      Hi PFAF members,

      I am interested in the potential of growing edible plant leaves in large quantities. Can edible leaves be produced at higher yields and with less water and fertilizer than the grains from corn, rice, and wheat? What are some leaf crops that can be produced at high yields with minimal inputs?

      Thanks
