Abstract:
Lentils have been a high quality food since 8000 – 7500 BC (HORNEBURG, 2003a, 4). This present thesis is intensively concerned with the production of lentil seeds for a catch crop. Lens plants are susceptible to lie on the ground and are uncompetitive (HORNEBURG, 2003a, 14ff). There are only two active components registered for reducing weeds in lens plants: one of a herbicide which kills every plant (“Diquat”) and of a product for reducing grass (“Fluazifop-P”) (AGES, 2018, s.p.). These active components kill also lens plants or only target grass and because of it is very risky to saw lens plants by themselves, different crops (6) for supporting the lens plants were tested. Both trial sites (Großenzersdorf and Untermallebarn) are in the semiarid production area. Oat quickly covers the ground, the plants are high and produces a lot of biomass, however with a reduced yield of lentils. The highest yield of lentils was produced with buckwheat and flax as a supporting crop. Different varieties of lens plants (10) were used to test the differences in corn yields, the number of corns/area harvested and the biomass produced. Both at the time of blooming and at harvesting the variety “Späths Alblinse I ‚Die Große‘“ had the second highest production of dry weight (aboveground), with the highest corn yields on both trial sites.
