This project was designed to evaluate varieties currently grown to determine their limitations, and to investigate factors affecting performance. Strategies developed in this project will lead to increased productivity and reliability of lucerne seed production This publication reports some of the findings, implications and proposals for modified management of lucerne seed crops. It also indicates areas in which plant breeding and further research can be expected to substantially increase production and profitability of lucerne seed production.
