The productivity of pasture legume-grass stands on the mineral soils of the Belarusian Polesye was assessed. It has been established that the most productive are the grass stands cultivated on well-drained sod-gley sandy soil. Cultivation of legume-cereal grasses on sod-podzolic soil is impractical due to their very low productivity. The additional legume component inclusion in grass mixtures (red clover, sowing alfalfa, bird ҆s-foot trefoil, sainfoin) did not contribute to a significant increase in the productivity of grass stands on the studied soil types.
