 Forage Cultivar Trials
The original objective of this series of bulletins was to provide relative information on seed production capability and general adaptability of named foreign cultivars of perennial grasses and legumes to assist the Canadian forage seed industry in the development of production contracts and seed export markets. The original emphasis was on crops economically suitable for the Peace River region and which formed part of Canada’s forage seed export industry. The published bulletins of the results included the following:

Forage Cultivar Trials 1992 (Publication NRG 92-22)
This bulletin has results for separate seed and herbage production trials that were both conducted at the Beaverlodge and Fort Vermilion Research Farms. For both seed and herbage trials, the plots were replicated four times and were comprised of four rows, each 6.1 m long and spaced 30 cm apart, with the central 5 m from the two central rows in each plot being used for observations and yield assessment. An index of cultivars entered in the trials, and their seed agents, was provided.
