Abstract
An experiment at Kawanda Research Station to determine the effects of fertilizers on grazed and cut elephant grass (Pennisetum purpureum) ha, been described by Stephens [1].Two main results emerged. Nitrogen fertilizer was very effective in increasing both yield and the nitrogen content of the grass; and either potassium or magnesium, or perhaps both fertilizers, were necessary for maintaining yields when the grass was cut and carried off but not when it was grazed.
