The effects of basal fertilizer on forage crops in newly opened red soil

Acta Agriculturae Zhejiangensis 7(5): 408-411

The effects of basal fertilizer on forage crops in newly opened red soil

In plot trials in 1991-92, 5 fodder crops were given basal dressings of 15 t FYM or 45 kg urea and 375 kg calcium magnesium phosphate each with or without 750 kg lime/ha or were given 45 kg urea/ha or no fertilizer. Application of fertilizers increased seedling number and seedling growth and increased yields. Fresh matter yields of Lolium multiflorum and Vicia villosa were lowest without basal fertilizer, highest with FYM and were not increased by lime.
