Title: Sweetclover: An Alternative to Fallow for Set-Aside Acreage in Eastern North Dakota
Author: Meyer, D.W.
Description: North Dakota had an estimated 6.6 million acres in fallow in 1986, which was an increase of 27% since 1981. The objective of the experiments reported her in this article reported here was to evaluate sweet clover as a green manure or forage crop at 2 maturity stages and their subsequent crop productivity and quaiity at Streeter and Prosper North Dakota. The methods and materials for these experiments are presented. The conclusion of these experiments for sweet clover as a hay or green-manured crop generally increased grain yields of the subsequent wheat and barley crops as compared to a fertilized continuous wheat or maintained grain yields equal to fallow in these experiments. The inclusion of legumes helped maintain or even improved grain protein percentage as compared to to continuous wheat or fallow. Other advantages and disadvantages were given.
