Forage and Hay Yield Performance of Different Berseem Clover (Trifolium alexandinum L.) Genotypes in Mazandaran Conditions

G.A. Ranjbar

In order to compare forage and hay yield performance of 10 berseem clover genotypes a complete randomized block design with four replications has been undertaken in 2003 and 2004. Samples of 500 g per plot were selected for measuring of dry weight and dry matter percentages of each cultivar. Fresh forage yield of cultivars were significantly different and cultivar Sacromonte by producing 30.80 t ha-1 in average has been ranked as the first high yielding cultivar position, so that, control cultivar, Karmel, showed as a low yielding cultivar in fresh yield production. With regard to dry weight production, there also were significantly differences among different genotypes. Genotype Sacromonte with 5.07 t ha-1 produced the highest dry weight mainly because of higher fresh yield production; however, results obtained from ratios of dry matter brought position of cultivar Sacromonte from first in fresh and dry weight to fifth in percentage of dry matter. Laura with 20.7% has produced highest percentage of dry matter.
