2984. Jacklin, A.W.. 1940. Annual Agronomy Report. North Idaho Area. USDA - SCS, Moscow, ID.
Sweetclover well suited as a soil building crop; best to plant with a grass to reduce erosion, reducing "burning" of first grain crop, improve quality of forage; have tried slender wheat grass, blue and Canada wild type; still looking for a good species; gypsum increased tonnage of tops, shortened tap root depth. T: yield, crop performance.

Better sweetclover stands when seeded alone or with grass; peas better than cereals; hi (>10 lb/ac) seeding rate leads to better stands; best seeding date April 10-May 7; more weeds in second year when grown with companion crop; sweetclover/grass mix gave greater wheat yield increase than SC alone, also had less erosion; excellent thorough study. T: Yield, erosion X agronomic management.
