In trials in 1972-5 with berseem, sowing on 11 Oct., 26 Oct. and 10 Nov. gave average seed yields of 840, 692 and 519 kg/ha, resp. Yields were similar (668-727 kg/ha) with sowing rates in the range 10-30 kg/ha. Sowing rates and dates had no significant effect on 1000-seed wt. In seeds harvested in May and stored at room temp. during June-Sept., the germination percentage increased with increase in storage duration.
