Birdsfoot trefoil (Lotus corniculatus L.) represents an important leguminous species for the permanent and temporary pasture ecosystems. In order to produce seeds in this species, we propose birdsfoot trefoil (8 kg/ha) seeding in association with annual gramineae (oat and spring barley), according to the results achieved along four years of study. This seeding system makes the entire period of seed production in birdsfoot trefoil efficient.
