The genus Sesbania (Leguminosae) consists of many species used widely in the tropics for their nitrogen-fixing properties to improve crop production. Most of the perennial species provide animal fodder, fuel wood, fibres, paper pulp and commercial gum, while some (e.g. Sesbania exaltata (Raf.) Cory and Sesbania punicea (Cav.) Benth.) are known to be noxious weeds (Vogt & Cordo 1976; Evans & Rotar 1987).
