Synopsis

Synopsis

Light and moisture appear to be critical factors in the establishment of ladino clover seedlings in a well-fertilized orchardgrass sod. Good establishment was obtained in greenhouse cultures provided with high soil moisture and special techniques to prevent shading by the orchardgrass. Root competition reduced clover dry matter production approximately one-half. The cause of this growth suppression was not defined, but was suggested to be primarily plant moisture stress.
