Abstract

We studied white-tailed deer (Odocoileus virginianus) use, standing crop and persistence, and nutrient features of 4 warm-season forbs in South Texas. Tepary bean (Phaseolus acutifolius) was palatable and nutritious, but lack of persistence, even in the absence of grazing, reduced its value for summer food plots. Although siratro (Macroptilium atropurpureum) persisted and remained green into late summer, slow establishment reduced its value for warm-season food plots. Based on our results, we do not recommend tepary bean or siratro as alternatives to common cowpeas (Vigna sinensis) for food plot plantings with the farmingpractices we used on the sandy loam soil of our study area. Lablab (Lablab purpureus) persisted under grazing longer than cowpeas and was similar in palatability and chemical composition. Moreover, lablab had greater standing crop than cowpeas under dry conditions in May 1990. These characteristics, particularly the ability of lablab to tolerate long periods of dry weather, make it a desirable alternative to cowpeasfor supplementing deer diets on the sandy loam soil of the study area.
