The phosphorus and nitrogen requirements of temperate pasture species and their influence on grassland botanical composition

Hill, James O; Simpson, R J; Wood, Jeffrey; Moore, Andrew D; Chapman, D F

Description

Grassland production in southern Australia is generally based on phosphorus (P)- and nitrogen (N)-deficient soils. Use of P-fertiliser is necessary for high production in higher rainfall zones and economic pressures are increasing the need to apply fertiliser more widely and consistently. The P and N requirements of 10 temperate pasture species were examined to understand how increased fertiliser use will affect grassland botanical composition. The plant species fell into 2 main groups with...[Show more]
