Nykänen-Kurki, P.; Leinonen, P. and Nykänen, A. (2003) Preliminary evaluation of annually cultivated forage legumes for organic farming in Finland. In: Helgadóttir, Á. and Dalmannsdóttir, S. (Eds.) COST-852 Quality legume-based forage systems for contrasting environments, pp. 72-75.
In 1998-2001 nineteen forage legume species (Lupinus, Medicago, Melilotus, Pisum, Trifolium and Vicia species) were evaluated at two sites of Eastern Finland (Mikkeli and Juva). Species were studied for their annual productivity in pure stands and in mixtures with cereals (barley and oats) and Italian ryegrass. Swards were cut either twice or once (whole grain silage stage of barley).
