• Subterranean Vetch Seed Enhances Persistence Under Grazing and Severe Climates

      Alinoglu, N.; Durlu, N. (Society for Range Management, 1970-01-01)
      Subterranean vetch (Vicia sativa subsp. amphicarpa) grows widely in the central Anatolia region of Turkey. This variety was grown to determine biological characteristics and adaptation for persistence under heavy grazing. Both aerial and subterranean stems were produced and subterranean seed were larger than aerial seed. Delayed germination enables survival of the species where the climatic conditions are severe.
