Alfalfa was established successfully in corn by planting The alfalfa the same day as corn. High corn yields were obtained when a 20-inch area over the corn row was kept weed free and the alfalfa between the rows was clipped. Sixty-inch rows produced 92% and 80-inch rows produced 80% as much corn grain as that produced in 40-inch rows. Lespedeza and alfalfa were the easiest legumes to establish under summer seeding conditions.
