Results from field experiments in 2000 and 2002 showed that intercropping of perennial ryegrass and green manure legumes prolonged the time for nitrogen accumulation in the grass seed crop. The effect on the grass seed yield was dependent on the green manure legume species. However, using the intercropping technique it was possible to achieve seed yield at 1012 kg ha-1 in 2000 and at 829 kg ha-1 in 2000, which is very promising for the future organic seed production of perennial ryegrass.
