A total of 44 tropical pasture legume accessions from the Clitoria, Desmanthus, Macroptilium and Stylosanthes genera were evaluated at 2 sites in semi-arid pastoral regions of north Queensland on gidgee clay soils. The results of the establishment phase of these trials are presented. A number of Desmanthus accessions survived well into the 2002 drought and their survival compared to other accessions and genotypes indicates their potential for such environments.
