The paper reports a study that provided important information from farmers of the floodplain area of Bangladesh for setting research and development priorities with respect to indigenous and exotic fodder trees. Indigenous knowledge of fodder trees from the floodplain area may be an important tool in planning nutrition for livestock management, particularly for setting priorities in times of crisis. Policy-makers, livestock professionals
and foresters could use this knowledge to develop the livestock resources of Bangladesh.
