Abstract
Chlorosis prevented a precise definition of the response of a forage millet reclamation crop grown at Hofuf, Saudi Arabia to N and P. For the chlorotic crop, optimum fertilizer rates were about 80 kg/ha month of both N and P2O5. Yields of about 13 t DM/ha were obtained, which contained 13.9% CP, 25.5% CF, 14.4% ash and 11.6% total available carbohydrates.
