Differential phosphorus uptake and use efficiency among selected nitrogen-fixing tree legumes over time



Differential phosphorus uptake and use efficiency among selected nitrogen-fixing tree legumes over time



Journal of Plant Nutrition 26(5): 1009-1022



A study was carried out in Ibadan, Nigeria, on three nitrogen (N<sub>2</sub>)-fixing tree legumes: Gliricidia sepium ILG50, Leucaena leucocephala K28, and Albizia lebbeck, to assess their differential phosphorus (P) nutrition capability over time. Dry matter (DM) yields, P concentration, P uptake and partitioning in plants, and P use efficiency were estimated at 4, 8, 12, and 16 months after planting (MAP). The tree showed a large interspecific variation both in DM yields and P uptake.
