Abstract

In the paper, there are presented the green mass and seed yields registered by various alfalfa cultivars, in the pedoclimatic conditions of the Research and Development Agricultural Station (S.C.D.A.) Simnic – Craiova. It can be observed that the yields of the studied lines were superior to the varieties` yields, both for the green mass and for the seeds. Within the trials related to the green mass production, it can be observed that the highest registered yields were 63,86 t/ha at F 2507-16, followed by the F 2512-16 line by 63,19 t/ha. With respect to the seed production, the same lines and in the same order registered the highest yields. The lack of rainfall in the months of June and August considerably diminished the registered yields. More, the fourth cut was totally compromised.
