Establishment and Yield of Late-Summer Alfalfa Seedings as Influenced by Placement of Seed and Phosphate Fertilizer, Seeding Rate, and Row Spacing1

Band-placement of seed and fertilizer increased the yield when adverse environmental conditions followed the seeding date, but not under more favorable conditions. The level of intra-crop competition during the seeding year increased as seeding rate and population increased, but was also influenced by the environment. Intra-crop competition was apparently lower when emergence was delayed 3 weeks due to dry weather. High levels of intra-crop competition may limit plant size and subsequent yield.Please view the pdf by using the Full Text (PDF) link under 'View' to the left.
