Production from grassland in South Africa. Fertilizer treatments and livestock gains on veld



Production from grassland in South Africa. Fertilizer treatments and livestock gains on veld



Emp. J. Expt. Agric 18: 8-18



Treatments on natural veld over 8 seasons show that the cover increased most on treatments receiving the most N. Animals on veld without fertilizer made an annual gain of 124 Ib. live weight per morgen in the summer grazing season. An application of 400 Ib./morgen of P fertilizer over 8 seasons gave no significant increase in live weight. 200 Ib./morgen of (NH4)2SO4 with phosphate increased the live weight to 253 Ib.
