The effects of water and nitrogen supply on the competition between three perennial meadow grasses



The effects of water and nitrogen supply on the competition between three perennial meadow grasses



Acta Oecologica, Oecologia Plantarum 4(1): 71-82



The biomass production with and without competition (the so-called "ecological" and "physiological" behaviour) of Alopecurus pratensis, Arrhenatherum elatius and Bromus erectus were examined in lysimeter experiments using three different levels of nitrogen fertilization and water supply. Alopecurus was found to be the strongest competitor under almost all conditions, while Bromus was the weakest competitor.
