4106. Massee, T.W., R.C. Rosenau, C.W. Case, and C.G. Painter. 1975. Cropping and fertilizing wheat and barley in the Camas Prairie.. ID Agr. Expt. Sta. CIS #278.
Camas Prairie rainfall 14-17"/yr, mostly as winter snow; fallow does not often increase stored soil moisture; fallow does increase N, and control weeds; suggest annual cropping on medium texture soils; often need 1 lb S for each 10 lb N fertilizer; wheat 24 bu/ac with 75 lb N/ac (with sulfur); on fallow, only needed 25 lb N/ac; yield potential always higher on fallow (rotation effect?) for barley and wheat.

4713. Murray, G.A. and J.B. Swenson. 1984. Intercropping Austrian winter peas and winter cereals for seed.. ID Agr. Expt. Sta. CIS #749.
Peas seeded at 25, 50 and 75% of mixture with winter wheat or barley; both crops harvested on same day; 25% cereal, 75% pea was best mix; less lodging, less disease, 27% yield increase; cereal yields very low; apperently no N advantage to cereal from the pea; less lodging with winter wheat compared to winter barley; better maturity match with barley; LER over 130 with WW(25%) + WP(75%). T: yield, seed size.
