Crotalaria juncea

Crotalaria juncea, commonly known as Sunhemp, is a fast-growing leguminous plant that belongs to the Fabaceae family. Sunhemp is valued for its ability to improve soil health, suppress weeds, and provide high-quality biomass. Known for its vibrant yellow flowers and robust growth, Sunhemp is widely used in agricultural systems around the world.


  • Sunhemp is an erect, annual plant that can grow up to 6-9 feet tall. It has a strong, fibrous stem and deep root system, making it resilient and hardy.
  • The leaves are simple, elongated, and green, providing a dense foliage cover.
  • Sunhemp produces bright yellow flowers in clusters, which are not only visually appealing but also attract beneficial pollinators.
  • The plant produces cylindrical seed pods that contain multiple seeds. These pods turn brown when mature.
  • As a legume, Sunhemp has the ability to fix atmospheric nitrogen through symbiosis with rhizobia bacteria in its root nodules, enriching the soil with this essential



  • Sunhemp seeds can be sown directly into the soil. The recommended planting depth is 1-2 cm, with a spacing of about 30-50 cm between rows.
  • Prepare the soil by tilling and incorporating organic matter to enhance fertility and structure. Sunhemp is adaptable to a range of soil types but thrives in well-drained, sandy loam soils with a pH of 5.5-7.5.
  • Sunhemp requires adequate moisture for germination and early growth. Ensure consistent watering during these stages, although the plant is relatively drought-tolerant once established.
  • Apply a balanced fertilizer at planting if soil fertility is low. Sunhemp typically requires minimal additional fertilization due to its nitrogen-fixing ability.
  • Monitor for common pests such as aphids and caterpillars. Use integrated pest management (IPM) strategies, including biological controls and organic pesticides, to manage infestations.


  • Store Sunhemp seeds in a cool, dry place. Use airtight containers to protect from moisture and pests. Properly stored seeds can remain viable for up to two years.
  • To use Sunhemp as green manure, cut and incorporate the plants into the soil before they flower. This maximizes nutrient release and organic matter addition to the soil.
  • If used as forage, harvest Sunhemp before it becomes too fibrous. It can be dried and stored as hay, ensuring proper drying to prevent mold and nutrient loss. Store in a dry, well-ventilated area.
  • Harvest stems for fiber production when the plants reach full maturity. Cut, dry, and process the stems accordingly. Store processed fibers in a dry, cool place to maintain quality.
