Situation and possibilities of the Belgian seed production

Erik Van Bockstaele (1992) LANDBOUWTIJDSCHRIFT-REVUE DE L AGRICULTURE. 45(5). p.845-854
abstract
Grass seed production is a marginal crop in Belgium (1.500-1.700 ha). However, Belgian farmers and seed trade have an interest in producing grass seed. italian and perennial ryegrass are the most important seed crops and their surface is increasing. Nevertheless, within the EC only 1 % of the total seed production was grown in Belgium. The last decade EC grass seed production has in-creased and the stocks of red fescue, smooth stalked meadow grass and perennial ryegrass have grown. The possibilities and difficulties of the Belgian grass seed production are discuted At this moment seed yield/ha is lower in Belgium than in the Netherlands and Denmark. More adequate growing techniques and seed crop management are necessary to obtain higher and more profitable seed yields of good quality.
