Response of pastures to nitrogen fertiliser applied in autumn and spring on the West Coast of South Island, New Zealand



Response of pastures to nitrogen fertiliser applied in autumn and spring on the West Coast of South Island, New Zealand



New Zealand Journal of Experimental Agriculture 11(3): 247-250



The effect of N application (0, 25, 50 and 100 kg N/ha) on spring and autumn pasture [grass/clover] yield was measured on the West Coast. All rates of N application increased dry matter [DM] production; the average pasture yield response was 360-1080 kg DM/ha in the spring and 120-510 kg DM/ha in the autumn. Spring responses were highest from Sept. applications. March and April were the best months for autumn applications but responses were smaller and less reliable than from applications in the spring.
