The importance of fertilizer on pasture production in the humid region of Spain

The importance of fertilizer on pasture production in the humid region of Spain

Pastos 16(1-2): 27-55

Data from various sources are used to investigate the importance of fertilizer use on pasture. The effects of lime in increasing soil pH, decreasing available Al and in improving DM yields on different soil types are demonstrated. P is necessary for pasture establishment, with response up to high P rates, though residual P remains high. In improving legume growth, P application increases CP content of the diet. K is shown to be more important in legume persistence than in establishment.
