Abstract only

Peavine is the most ancient crop. It is remarkable among legumes for its pest and disease resistance. Peavine rather easily tolerates low fertility soils and moderate frosts. Green mass of peavine is used as green fodder, green manure, silage and hay, while grain is used in food. Peavine has short vegetation, so its cultivation is possible facultative, enabling for the efficient use of arable land. The above mentioned beneficiary properties of peavine are the reason of its suggested adoption into the farming practice. However, the main obstacle here is the lack of seeding stocks. Our study aimed at establishment of the best terms and most economic rates of peavine sowing for ensuring high crop productivity. The experiment design included three sowing rates: 100, 120 and 130 kg/ha, five sowing technologies and three inter-row distances: 15,30 and 45 cm. Three year average data ascertained the best result for the plots where drill row sowing as per the common practice with 15 cm inter-rows distance and sowing rate 130 kg/ha were applied. The above described technology resulted in 27 c/ha yield, or 9,5 c/ha (54,3%) more as compared to the lowest yield variant. It is necessary to note that peavine sowed for grain vacates the cultivation area in the second decade of July, enabling for the free use of land under the after crop.
