Synopsis

Synopsis

Two recently developed sod-seeder openers have produced successful establishment of a small-seeded legume (birdsfoot trefoil) in an old establshed bluegrass sward. Both were superior to the conventional opener which left only a narrow slit in the sod. The use of a presswheel improved establishment following the disk but not the wing opener. Granular heptachlor over the row at seeding resulted in improved stands one out of two years.
