In 2 trials in 1969-70 on a sandy soil in Western Australia, seed production of subterranean clover when sown as a commercial crop was greatly influenced by rate and date of sowing and rate of applied P. Early (Apr.) sowing, high P rates up to 600 kg/ha and high sowing rates up to 24 kg/seed/ha all increased seed set, but the main effect was that of early sowing. Time of sowing interacted with P rates, the time of sowing differences being only fully expressed at high P rates.
