Abstract/Contents:"The production potential of 171 annual Medicago genotypes representing 48 of the possible 52 sub-species was compared under sward conditions. Entry selection was based on superiority in seedling vigour, winter herbage production, seed yield, and range of flowering times. The high production ranking of the commercial cultivars illustrates their suitability to the environment. The potential of other non-commercialized sub-species is discussed. The performance of species dominant in the Mediterranean Basin suggests potential for selection for cultivar development for those agricultural systems."
