AbstractAverage first-year plants per foot of row were .37, .64, 1.34, and 2.80 from pure live seed rates of 4, 12, 36, and 108, respectively. Average percent establishment in relation to seeding rate was 9.3, 5.3, 3.7, and 2.6 in the same order. Planting two-species mixtures in various proportions and at increasing rates did not significantly influence plant numbers compared with pure species plantings at similar rates.
