2984. Jacklin, A.W.. 1940. Annual Agronomy Report. North Idaho Area. USDA - SCS, Moscow, ID.
Sweetclover well suited as a soil building crop; best to plant with a grass to reduce erosion, reducing "burning" of first grain crop, improve quality of forage; have tried slender wheat grass, blue and Canada wild type; still looking for a good species; gypsum increased tonnage of tops, shortened tap root depth. T: yield, crop performance.

35. Anon.. 1949. Grasses and legumes for soil conservation in the PNW.. .
An excellent treatment of over 60 species - detailed descriptions. T: maps and photos.

2918. Idaho Agr. Expt. Sta.. 1950. Annual Report. Id Agr. Expt. Sta. Bull. #280.
T: hay yields, economics

3481. Kaiser, V.G. and A.W. Jacklin. 1939. Annual progress report for field test "effect of cropping systems".. USDA-SCS.
Better sweetclover stands when seeded alone or with grass; peas better than cereals; hi (>10 lb/ac) seeding rate leads to better stands; best seeding date April 10-May 7; more weeds in second year when grown with companion crop; sweetclover/grass mix gave greater wheat yield increase than SC alone, also had less erosion; excellent thorough study. T: Yield, erosion X agronomic management.

4377. McKay, H.C. and W.A. Moss. 1949. High protein wheat with conservation farming.. U. of Idaho Extension Bull. #181.
Emphasize need for legume - grass rotation to maintain soil productivity. Suggest a 7 yr sweet clover rotation or a 9 yr alfalfa rotation. Yellow sweet clover plus mountain bromegrass or slender wheatgrass; Ladak alfalfa plus smooth brome and big bluegrass (high rainfall) or crested wheatgrass (low rainfall); early spring seeding recommended without nurse crop; methods of establishment, plow sweetclover at 12-22" height; use sweetclover as a surface mulch to prevent erosion. T: soil moisture and sweetclover growth; wheat after sweetclover; yield and protein.

6629. Stark, R.H., J.L. Toers and A.L. Hafenrichter. 1946. Grasses and cultural methods for reseeding abandoned farm lands in the wheat/fallow zone of the intermountain West.. ID Agr. Expt. Sta. Bull. #267.
Wheat/fallow zone of intermountain west; cheatgrass takes over abandoned land, perennials can't re-establish; tried summerfallow, duckfoot cultivator, burning, and no preparation; summerfallow gave best results; fall seeding best; recommend planting of several grasses in different blocks to extend grazing. T: methods, yields, species, accessions, bibliography.

6978. USDA Soil Conservation Service. 1938. Study of erosion controlling forage plants.. USDA - SCS, Pullman, WA.
Promising new legumes - milk vetch species, big headed clover, flat pea, siberian alfalfa, black medic, trailing birdsfoot, sanfoin, lupin, Montana goldenpea, perennial vetch. Yellow sweetclover was superior to white under drought conditions; dwarf varieties recommended in drier areas; clipping sweetclover reduced vigor, hay yield and total N per acre; Ladak the best alfalfa variety for the region.

6998. USDA Soil Conservation Service. 1940. Proceedings Annual Agronomy Conference and Grass School.. SCS Region 9.

7008. USDA Soil Conservation Service. 1939. Proceedings Annual Agronomy Conference ad Grass School.. USDA - SCS Region 9.
Tillage studies; sweetclover management; Blue Mtn. region; grass performance.
