DescriptionKudzu (Pueraria lobota), a large-leaved, deep-rooted, perennial legume, favors a warm moist climate and has the ability to thrive on almost any soil. During the 1930's, the government gave an $8 per acre incentive to plant kudzu to control soil erosion in the Southeast, and the forage was subsequently used for cattle grazing. But the asset turned to liability.
