Abstract

On sandy-surfaced scrub-plain soils at five centres, the best establishment of Dwalganup subterranean clover and barrel medic has in general been obtained with seeding depths between one and one and a half inches. Shallower or deeper seeding generally gave poorer results. This response to depth of seeding is not confined to soils where a response to seed inoculation is obtained. Available machinery is not altogether satisfactory for obtaining required depths of seeding.
