Here’s a video of our goats fed with mix Indigofera and Acid Ipil-ipil.
Step 1: Land preparation
Make sure the field is clean from weeds before planting. You may use a herbicide.
Step 2: Seed preparation
Soak the Indigofera seeds in water for 8 to 12 hours (overnight) before planting.
Step 3: Planting
Create lines using a bolo at 2 to 3 feet distance in between rows. Pour one (1) pinch of Indigofera seeds in a one (1) meter long line.
Sow the Indigofera seeds in seedbed or seedbag until they reach at least one (1) feet in height. Transplant the seedlings at two (2) to three (3) feet distance in between plants.
When planting Indigofera, just cover the seeds with little soil (sort of like the size of the seeds themselves). Be sure to plant them after a rain or slightly wet soil. If you cover them with lots of soil, the seeds will rot and won’t grow. Weed control is necessary within three (3) to five (5) months after planting. You may apply animal manure as natural fertilizer.
When harvesting, just maintain one (1) to two (2) meters height, like the one showed in this video.
