Lists grasses and legumes; also sudan grass, soybean, forage mixes.
1846. Emerson, P.. 1919. Inoculation of legumes.. ID Agr. Expt. Sta. Circular #7.
Soil method - take from inoculated field (400 lb/ac) and spread on new land. Pure culture - commercially available; describes nodules on different species; gives guidelines for inoculation.
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.
3607. Klages, K.H. and R.H. Stark. 1949. Grass and grass seed production.. ID Agr. Expt. Sta. Bull. #273.
Lists hay and seed yields of special grasses; discusses stand configuration; N fertilization; adaptation of different grasses.
395. Anon.. undated. Soil conservation with adapted legumes and grasses.. .
Discussed planting and mangement of legumes and grasses; sweetclover for pasture, hay or green manure; sweetclover seed production.
509. Auld, D.L.. 1982. Garbanzo beans - a potential new pulse crop for Idaho.. ID Agr. Expt. Sta. Bull. #615.
Yields around 2000 lb/ac; describes basic production practices for northern Idaho; early spring seeding recommended, in 6 inch rows with 1-2 seeds per foot; weed control is essential, as chickpeas are poor competitors; seed can be direct combined. T: seed yield size, planting date, row spacing, weed control.

variety, planting date, weed control trials
545. Auld, D.L.. 1979. Melrose Austrian winter pea.. ID Agr. Expt. Sta. CIS #497.
New variety; 8-12% more yield; more tolerant to Ascochyta foot rot; better winter survival. T: yield, survival, disease resistance.
555. Auld, D.L., G.A. Murray, and R.V. Withers. 1983. Austrian winter peas: a green manure crop for Idaho.. ID Agr. Expt. Sta. CIS #652.
Good % of pea N is from soil; best to plow under right after flowering; Melrose contributed 278 lb/ac of vine N; winter peas produced slightly more biomass than spring peas, but fall peas can be plowed 2 weeks earlier; spring peas accumulated 70 lb N/ac more than winter peas; variable cost of WW-SB-SF = $63/ac, uses 120 lb N/ac; for WW-SB-pea GM = $59/ac, with only 40 lb N/ac; must consider intangible benifits; recommended green manure crop every 3-5 years. T: organic matter yield, nitrogen content, costs.

T: organic matter and nitrogen contributions, pea yield.
