Description: Kentucky 31 tall fescue and sericea lespedeza were sown on clay and loam minesoils that had been screened throu h a No. 10 sieve and compacted to densities of 1.6, 1.8, and 2.0 gfjcm3. Stands of sericea lespedeza were more difficult to establish than fescue on both minesoils and were more susceptible than fescue to increased levels of compaction. Dry matter yields averaged over all densities were greater on the clay than on the loan minesoil.
