Twenty-six clones of birdsfoot trefoil (Lotus corniculatus L.) were evaluated to determine relationships between seed yield and its components. This relationship was examined by means of simple correlation coefficients. Some seed yield components were found significatively associated with seed yield. Variations in seed yield accounted for by variation in the characteristics measured were calculated by stepwise regression analysis.
