The Effect of Nitrogen (N), Soil Temperature, Soil Moisture, Soil Reaction and Day Length on the Growth and Production of Ryegrass and Clover under Controlled Conditions at Elsenburg
This research project aims to test and quantify the effect of a single application of nitrogen in combination with soil temperature, soil moisture, soil reaction and day length on the growth and production of ryegrass and clover.
Four rates of fertiliser nitrogen (0, 50, 100 and 150kg N/ha) are tested in combination with four factors (soil temperature, soil moisture, soil reaction and day length) as separate experiments:
Data recorded includes dry matter (DM) production, tiller/stolon production, leaf nitrogen content, root growth and soil nitrogen fractions.
