Survey of soil fertility and nutritional status of alfalfa of Uruguay

IPNI-2000-URY-1

White clover (Trifolium repens) is a forage legume widely used in eastern Uruguay for forage and/or seed production. This survey evaluated the soil fertility and its nutritional status at 40 farms of eastern Uruguay. Soil analysis showed moderate acidity (average pH 5. 6), absence of exchangeable aluminum (Al), organic matter contents of 2. 5 to 6. 3 percent, low P availability (average of 6. 9 ppm Bray P), low to medium exchangeable K (average of 0.
