I can see both yellow and mottled flowers. The standard is again broader than long. What about S. cannabina?

Sir,

Attaching more images of this species, recorded this morning. It is cultivated, the owner appointed a daily labourer today in order to harvest the crop. I have been told (by the labourer) that this is DHONCHE plant and the plant is also used as a cattle feed (probably chopped and boiled). Uses of Sesbania can be seen at - http://www.lrrd.org/lrrd21/5/anit21067.htm and at - http://www.ars-grin.gov/cgi-bin/npgs/html/taxon.pl?33763#uses.

Thank you & Regards,

surajit

I think it should be Sesbania sesban (L.) Merr. based on the keys in Flora of China
