The effect of advancing the sowing date from early February to November on the growth and seed and straw yields of three large seeded and three small seeded lines of lentil (Lens culinaris) was studied under rainfed conditions in northern Syria between 1982 and 1985. The average seed and straw yields from early winter sowing were 838 and 2476 kg ha−1 compared with 679 and 1470 kg ha−1, respectively, from a late sown crop. There were seasonal differences in the advantage in seed yield from early… CONTINUE READING
