Although we have a different species (Pueraria montana) that has naturalized across the southeastern United States, I've come to regard kudzu as a very useful cover crop. Kudzu varies in its ability to establish a good cover, but you will only find out if it is better than the sunhemp and the velvet beans after you try it out.

Thanks John..Today I visited a farm (growing coconut, banana, arecanut, other fruittrees) where they had used tropical kudzu as cover crop. He likes it and dislikes it at the same time. He likes it, since it enriches soil well and control weeds, but it climbs to crops also so every week he has to control it from bananas and young trees. He hasn't found any snakes in it, but fallen coconuts are difficult to be located.
Anyway planning to try it out in one small area of the farm, already got the seeds.
