The investigations reported in this thesis constitute initial efforts directed towards ascertaining the agronomic characteristics and cultural requirements of sainfoin in Nebraska.
The rate of emergence of sainfoin seed was tested with two different media (soil and sand), two different depths (1 and 1 ½ inch), and three different seed treatments (unhulled, hulled, and hulled and scarified).
The effects of time, depth and rate of seeding upon numbers of seedlings, plant height and forage yield of sainfoin were studied in the 1957 spring and fall plantings, and the 1958 spring planting.
