Perennial Peanuts:
An Old Crop With A New Future
Research shows that the non-fruiting perennial peanut provides high-quality forage for cattle, goats and horses. The quality is compared to alfalfa, which it often beats in controlled feed tests. It's environmentally positive because it requires little to no chemical application. And it's of great benefit for erosion control.

Fort Valley State University: Rhizoma Peanut
Rhizoma peanut (Arachis glabrata Benth.) is a perennial forage legume that is well adapted to warm, humid climates. In the United States, production of rhizoma peanut is limited to Florida and the lower part of the Gulf States. It has been used in these areas as a feed for both ruminant and non-ruminant animals due to its excellent nutritional value
