A Comparison of Birdsfoot Trefoil and Ladino Clover under Varying Irrigation and Fertility Levels1
- Clee S. Cooper2
Increasing frequency of irrigation gave a marked response with Ladino clover, but not with birdsfoot trefoil. Part of the response of Ladino clover was attributed to a better medium on irrigated plots for the regeneration of clover stands which were depleted from winterkilling. Birdsfoot trefoil did not respond to irrigation because of the presence of a shallow water table within reach of birdsfoot trefoil roots. Frequent irrigations resulted in decreased stands of birdsfoot trefoil which were accompanied by an ingress of weeds.Please view the pdf by using the Full Text (PDF) link under 'View' to the left.
