Lathyrus sativus grown at Onderstepoort and fed without any additional ration in the fresh state and in the preflowering and flowering stages proved to be poisonous to horses. Cattle, sheep and rabbits, although having consumed relatively larger amounts of the plant, suffered no ill-effects. No definite results with regard to the active principle of Lathyrus sativus have been achieved by the various investigators.
