Effect of sowing rate and row spacing in seed production of Poa pratensis L

Effect of sowing rate and row spacing in seed production of Poa pratensis L

Journal of Applied Seed Production 12: 26-33

In field experiments in Norway in 1988 and 1989 Poa pratensis Lavang (arctic cultivar) and Leikra (temperate cultivar) were sown at 2.5, 5.0 and 10.0 kg seeds/ha at row spacings of 16.5 and 33.0 cm. In 1988, rapid field emergence caused intense tiller competition, and in the following ley years seed yields increased with lower sowing rates in both cultivars and with wider row spacing in Lavang.
