Effect of date of seeding, companion crops, and preceding crops on seed production of crested wheatgrass. Agropyron desertorum Schult. and orchardgrass, Dactylis glomerata L., under irrigation



Effect of date of seeding, companion crops, and preceding crops on seed production of crested wheatgrass. Agropyron desertorum Schult. and orchardgrass, Dactylis glomerata L., under irrigation



Crop Sci 3(3): 251-254



Seed yield of spring-planted crested wheatgrass was markedly reduced by planting with barley, but not with peas, compared to planting alone. Wheat as a crop preceding fall-planted crested wheatgrass also reduced subsequent seed yield compared with potatoes and peas as preceding crops. Companion crops or preceding crops did not affect seed yield of orchardgrass. Fall seeding of crested wheat-grass and spring seeding of orchardgrass were the most desirable planting time for seed production. The number of culms per m of row was highly correlated with seed yields of crested wheatgrass and orchardgrass. It was the component affected in the yield reduction of crested wheatgrass by barley. Seeds per 100 culms were also correlated with yield of crested wheatgrass.
