Effects of pig unit effluent and irrigation with water on Napier grass and soil

Effects of pig unit effluent and irrigation with water on Napier grass and soil

Journal of the Taiwan Livestock Research 15(2): 61-68

In field trials in 1977-80, Napier grass was given 2 700 000 l pig unit effluent/ha each yr or 200 kg N + 72 kg P2O5 + 60 kg K2O/ha annually either with or without 2 700 000 l irrigation water/ha. Total yields from Nov. 1977 to Oct. 1980 were 153.75 t DM/ha with effluent, 110.89 t with chemical fertilizer + irrigation and 75.05 t with chemical fertilizer alone.
