ABSTRACT



The study performed over 1999-2003 aimed at determining the yielding of winter triticale cultivated after table potato fertilized with intercrop biomass and straw. The study examined two factors: I – potato fertilization with intercrops (white clover, Italian ryegrass, oil radish, oil radish – mulch and control); II – potato fertilization with straw (split-block without straw, split-block with straw). The fertilizing value of white clover may be enhanced with the application of straw enriching soil in organic matter and working as a protection against nutrients leaching, nitrogen in particular, which results in the highest potato tuber yield. The most favorable after-effect on winter triticale yielding was recorded for potato fertilized with Italian ryegrass with straw. The application of intercrops, and intercrops with straw under winter triticale forecrop, resulted not only in the direct production costs increase but also in the growth of production value and direct surplus. The best production and economic results were recorded for winter triticale cultivated after potato fertilized with Italian ryegrass with straw.

Key words: after-effect, intercrop, straw, winter triticale, yield, economic evaluation.
