It explained that Egyptian wheat production in MY 2017/18 displaced 30,000 hectares of other winter field crops (sugar beet and Egyptian clover or Berseem), as well as 20,000 hectares of winter vegetable crops in Upper Egypt and in the Northern Delta.
On September 7, Mr Reed sowed four different cover crop mixes - vetch, red clover and Egyptian clover; black oats and vetch; Black oats and berseem clover; and oil and tillage radish, European oats, phacelia and forage rye - on a total of 9ha after winter wheat.
Egyptian clover (Trifolium alexandrinum L.) is an important nitrogen-fixing legume crop and yet, molecular breeding programs for salt tolerance in this plant are rare.
Thus, this work designed for studying the effect of potassium on growth photosynthetic pigments and mineral status when sprayed on Egyptian clover plants irrigated by fresh and saline water.
chickpea (Cicer arietinum L.) lentil (Lens culinaris Medik) egyptian clover (Trifolium alexandrinum L.) linseed (Linum usitatissimum L.) fennel (Foeniculum vulgare Mill) garden cress (Lepidium sativum L.) and garlic (Allium sativum L.) were intercropped with barely (Hordeum vulgare L.).
The intercropping systems comprised of barley alone barley + chickpea barley + lentil barley + egyptian clover barley + linseed barley + fennel barley + garden cress and barley + garlic.
Some commonly cultivated green manure crops are Mung bean (Vigna radiate L.), Sunnhemp (Crotalaria juncea L.), Soybean (Glycine max L.), Egyptian clover (Trifolium alexandrinum L.), cluster bean (Guar) (Cyamopsis tetragonaloba L.), cowpea (Vigna sinesis L.) etc.
Mixtures of oat (Avena sativa L.) with Egyptian clover (Trifolium alexandrinum L.) under different seeding rates (100% oat+100%Egyptian clover, 75% oat+100% Egyptian clover, 50% oat+100% Egyptian clover, 25% oat+100% Egyptian clover, 0% oat+1000% Egyptian clover, and 100% oat+0% Egyptian clover) harvested at various growth stages of oat (stem elongation, booting and early heading) were evaluated for dry matter production.
The intercropping systems comprised rice alone, rice + maize, rice + sesbania, rice + mungbean, rice + ricebean, rice + cowpea and rice + pigeonpea while wheat, lentil and Egyptian clover were sown as relay crops on residual soil moisture just after the harvest of rice previously intercropped with forage legumes and non-legumes at zero tillage.
