Legume Establishments as Related to the Presence or Absence of an Oat Companion Crop1

Synopsis

When measured at the time the oats were removed for silage, legume yields were lowest when seeded with oats. Recovery during a favorable year (1959) was rapid for alfalfa, red clover, and Ladino clover. Yields of birdsfoot trefoil remained depressed. During a dry year (1957) alfalfa regrowth was satisfactory following seeding competition with weeds but not with oats. It was concluded that oats frequently will be much more competitive than the weed growth which will flourish in their absence.
