In field trials in the Lublin district, M. media Boja and Kleszczewska were sown in spring (27 Apr.) or summer (12 July) 1984, at 6, 9, 12, 15, 18 or 21 kg seed/ha and cut 3 times/year in 1985-87. Results did not differ significantly between cultivars. The number of shoots/msuperscript 2 was higher in spring than in summer sowings, was highest at the 1st cut and was markedly lower in the 3rd utilization year for summer sowings.
