 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 1983 (Publication 83-16B) - Pages: 1-13, 14-36
This bulletin has results from six locations, the same five as for Publication 80-16B plus Gimle near Beaverlodge. The results supplement “Forage Introductions 1979 (Publication NRG 79-16A)” which reports on all forage varieties evaluated since 1969. This bulletin contains the results from two types of trials, the first with plots of four 6.1 long rows spaced 30 cm apart and with each variety replicated four times at each site, and the second with plots of two 6.1 m long rows spaced 30 cm apart and with each variety replicated three times.
