THE INFLUENCE OF THE PROPORTION BETWEEN THE COMPONENTS IN TWO SIMPLE SHORT-EXPLOITATION MIXTURES
AbstractAs average, for an experimental period of two years (2012-2013) the two short exploitation mixtures that represented the graduations of factor A (mixture) had the same productive capacity. The proportion between the grasses and legumes has influenced, in the same way, both the production of the Lolium perenne + Trifolium pratense pasture and the Festuca pratensis + Trifolium pratense pasture. Thus for the mixture that used Lolium perenne, the production increased to 4.88 t ha-1d.m. (ratio 75/25%) up to 6.46 t ha-1d.m. (ratio 25/75%). The increases were proved to be important and very important. For the mixture of Festuca pratensis + Trifolium pratense the productions were 5.26 t ha-1d.m.in the proportion of 75/25%, 5.56 t ha-1d.m. to 50/50% and 6.16 t ha-1d.m.at 25/75 ratio %.
