Abstract:
Four berseem clover varieties were planted on three dates (Oct. 2 and 16, Nov. 2) in the fall of 2000. Data for plant heights and yields were obtained during the following winter and spring. Varieties differed widely in their initial stages of growth in terms of green coloration, indicating differences in bacterial nodulation and nitrogen fixation. ‘Tabor’ was a uniform rich green in coloration with vigorous growth, while ‘Saidi’ and ‘Serw 3’ were somewhat green. ‘Joe Burton’ was very reddish in coloration, especially in the later plantings, and no nodules were noted during examination of roots of this variety during the fall of 2000. Forage yields for the most part reflected planting date, with the earlier plantings having the highest yields. One exception was the Oct. 16 planting of ‘Tabor’, which had the highest overall individual yield. Lowest yields were noted with ‘Joe Burton’.
