Studies on a spear grass pasture in central coastal Queensland-the effect of fertilizer, stocking rate, and oversowing with Stylosanthes humilis on beef production and botanical composition



Studies on a spear grass pasture in central coastal Queensland-the effect of fertilizer, stocking rate, and oversowing with Stylosanthes humilis on beef production and botanical composition



Trop. Grasslds. 4: 1, 43-56. Bibl. 8



Liveweight changes of Hereford steers were recorded on 5 paddocks at Rodd's Bay near Gladstone during 1959-1966. Introduction of S. humilis and application of molybdenized superphosphate both increased beef production from Heteropogon contortus-dominant native pasture. Both treatments increased weight gain/head and allowed for increased stocking rates, and the biggest effect on both parameters was when the 2 treatments were combined.
