Miskawi variety was developed by selection from the local varieties, which is a basal branching type that can be cut five to six times during the growing season. The normal cultural practices for growing Egyptian clover in Dakahlia Gavornorate were followed, the soil was prepared and seeds were scouting in water about 12 hours then seeds were broadcasted at each plot.From obtained results it could be concluded that for maximizing forage yield of Egyptian clover sowing Giza 6 cultivar at seeding rate of 30 kg seed/fed and cutting plants at 50 cm height. Moreover, for maximizing forage quality of Egyptian clover with sown 30 kg seed/fed and cutting at 30 cm height under the environmental conditions of Dakahlia Governorate.
