Many livestock producers in parts of tropical Queensland and in developing countries regard leucaena (Leucaena leucocephala) as the premium forage shrub. It possesses many of the attributes sought in a shrub forage plant; however, to other members of the community, some of these attributes, particularly its high seed production and capacity to spread into non-target areas, make it an environmental weed. The hybrid leucaena, known as KX2 (Leucaena leucocephala x L. pallida) is psyllid-resistant and more productive in terms of total biomass than L. leucocephala but does not produce abundant seed. Although it is most unlikely to present a weed risk, it is difficult to establish for livestock production or as a multipurpose shrub legume. Simple vegetative propagation methods need to be developed.
