Algerian vetch – can also be found under the name pink or pink tufted vetch. The flowers are pink, the stem is covered with dense hairs, so it looks grayish.
Use: for green fodder, hay (especially when grown with oats or annual ryegrass) – but only until the seeds are ripe, as they are considered harmful to livestock. For green manure, seeding, as an intermediate plant. Accumulates atmospheric nitrogen.
Cultivation features: undemanding to soil, tolerates both more acidic and alkaline soils, can grow in both sandy and heavier soils, but does not like waterlogging. Less drought tolerant than other vetches.
