The reaction of grass pastures to nitrogen fertilization on the Eastern Transvaal Highveld

The reaction of grass pastures to nitrogen fertilization on the Eastern Transvaal Highveld

Technical Communication, Department of Agricultural Technical Services, Re ic of South Africa (187): 118-121

The reaction of grass pastures, and in particular Eragrostis curvula, to nitrogenous fertilizer is very good under the relatively high and reliable (700-900 mm) summer rainfall conditions of the Eastern Transvaal Highveld. This reaction and the influence upon this of the fertility level of the pasture, the soil form, the season and the level of P and K are illustrated by results obtained from various experiments conducted at the Nooitgedacht Research Station over the period of 1969-1982.
