ABSTRACT


In years 2002-2005, a strict field experiment
with Parada red clover cultivar grown for seeds was carried out as a randomized
complete block design in four replications. In the experiment, the following
factors were taken into account: additional feeding with microelements (0, B,
Mo, B + Mo) and methods of microelement application (1 – soil-applied prior to
seed sowing, 2 – soil-applied prior to the onset of plant vegetation in the second
year of cultivation, 3 – foliar on 2nd – cut plants during budding).
The highest seed yield was obtained in plants fed additionally with joint boron
and molybdenum, which significantly exceeded plant productivity in the control.
From the studied methods of microelement application, the highest seed yield
was found in plants with additional foliar feeding during budding from the 2nd cut
in the year of full utilisation.

Key words: red clover, microelements, seed yield.
