Abstract/Contents:"Soil organic matter has substantial influence on seed yield of cool-season turfgrasses. In this study the correlation coefficient between the soil organic matter content and the yield was observed as 0.97, 0.98, 0.93 and 0.88 for the tested varieties of 'Galer' Lolium perenne, 'Derby' L. perenne, 'Merit' Poa pratensis and 'Houndog' Festuca arundinacea, respectively. The seed yield showed a decreasing trend in order of the following treatments: 1) rotation between turfgrasses and broad bean; 2) intercropping of turfgrasses and broad bean; 3) continuous turfgrasses after broad bean; and 4) continuous turfgrasses after wheat. The difference between yield extremes was 140%~220% for Lolium perenne, 42.3%~55.9% for Poa pratensis and 38.6%~51.3% for Festuca arundinacea. The seed yield of turfgrasses planted in succession to broad bean was significantly higher than those planted in wheat field after wheat crop. However, the seed yield of Lolium perenne started to decline since the third year of planting, and this trend was more dramatically showed in the case when the grass planted after broad bean."
