Tudor Lacusteanu, Constantin Cotiga

Abstract


In this paper are presented 10 new synthetic cultivars of alfalfa, created at N.A.R.D.I. Fundulea. These are result of alfalfa breeding programme in order to create synthetic cultivars with hight yield potential, high quality and good adaptability to biotic and abiotic environmental conditions. Testing was conducted at C.A.R.D.S. over two years, 2012-2013, under irrigation conditions. In these conditions, new cultivars of alfalfa F 2209-12 and F 2225-12 proved superior to production of fodder and protein per unit area, making an yield of over 15 t/ha dry matter and 3200-3500 kg/ha crude protein.
