Effects of establishment method and a rapeseed companion crop on alfalfa seed yield



Effects of establishment method and a rapeseed companion crop on alfalfa seed yield



Canadian Journal of Plant Science 67(1): 263-266



In two experiments at Melfort using alfalfa (Medicago sativa L. 'Beaver') seeded at a rate of 2 kg ha-1 with and without a Polish rapeseed (Brassica campestris L. 'Candle') companion crop seeded at 5.5 kg ha-1, rapeseed yields in the establishment year were maximum when alfalfa and rapeseed were mixed and planted in 15-cm rows. Alfalfa showed no consistent seed yield differences between broadcast seeding, seeding in 15- or 16-cm rows, or seeding with or without the companion crop.
