This brief highlights the potential of the hybrid paper mulberry tree to provide nutritious low-cost fodder for livestock while reducing pressure on land and water resources.

Hybrid paper mulberry can be harvested multiple times a year and can be grown on degraded and barren land. It reduces soil and water erosion and improves soil quality over time. However, take-up has been limited among farmers in the Yellow River Basin of the People’s Republic of China. This brief provides insights into the possible constraints and policy options for promoting hybrid paper mulberry.
