Interpretive Summary

Pasture fertilization plays a vital role in the success of modern forage-based livestock production systems. Despite the University of Florida recommendations for K and P fertilization of highly-productive hayfields and pastures, many forage producers do not supply adequate amounts of K and P to replace the nutrients exported in harvested forage.

Pasture fertilization plays a vital role in the success of modern forage-based livestock production systems. The University of Florida recommends K and P fertilization of Jiggs and Limpograss hayfields and pastures; however, many forage production systems do not supply adequate K and P to replace that removed as harvested forage.
