, : Rehabilitation and lasting improvement of degraded land in Indonesia. Naturraum und Landnutzung in Sudostasien: 47-65

Forest clearing has produced 20 million ha of unproductive savanna dominated by Imperata cylindrica in Indonesia. A rehabilitation scheme is described which involves planting the legume Mucuna cochinchinensis as a cover crop, supported by liming and P application. After 6-7 months this is succeeded by marketable food crops.
