Abstract

Roxana is a synthetic red clover variety, made up of fourteen families. It was obtained by the breeding team of Prof. dr. M. Savatti and released as a new variety in 1995. Roxana is 3-5 days earlier than Select 1, has a very good yielding capacity in the second year and a satisfactory one in the third year of vegetation. Raw protein yield is 8% higher than in Select 1 while seed yield exceed that of Select 1 with 15.3-35.3%. It is recommended mainly in Transylvania where it meets the most favourable ecological conditions.
