Maximizing Forage Productivity by Improving Effectiveness of P and K Fertilizers

Phosphorus fertilization is essential for good forage production. This study is showing how P fertilization affects dry matter yield and protein of alfalfa and bromegrass hay in central Alberta.

IPNI-1994-CAN-AB12

Phosphorus fertilization is essential for good forage production. This study is showing how P fertilization affects dry matter yield and protein of alfalfa and bromegrass hay in central Alberta. Annual broadcast and disc-band P applications have been compared to larger applications of P applied once at the beginning of the study in 1992. Read more
