Abstract

Strains of O. compressus which originate from Paros in southern Greece were the earliest flowering serradellas tested. They consistently produced amongst the highest seed yields, are relatively hard-seeded and are worthy of further investigation for deep sands and very acid soils in low rainfall areas. Monthly applications of nitrogenous fertilizer about doubled the herbage yields of serradella in winter.
