Tannin Content of Crown Vetich(Coronilla varia L.) Herbage1

The tannin contents of three varieties of crown vetch from a cutting-management study were found to be between 3.2 and 3.8%, about half that found in well-managed sericea. The astringent fraction was approximately 30% of that found in sericea. Leuco-cyanidin and leucodelphinidin were present in equal quantities. It is not likely that the small amount of tannin present, especially of the astringent fraction, would affect forage quality of crown vetch.
