Management of nitrogen-fertilised Callide rhodes grass for improved spring growth

, : Management of nitrogen-fertilised Callide rhodes grass for improved spring growth. Tropical Grasslands 29(3): 163-168

A cutting experiment in Queensland determined management options for improving spring growth of Chloris gayana Callide given N (300 or 600 kg/ha) fertilizer in an area affected by severe frost. Treatments included removing litter from the soil surface and splitting the high N applications into 6 equal applications instead of 3. None of the treatments improved the production of green forage in early spring but litter removal improved green leaf yield later in spring.
