Abstract
In experiments with Lucerne and clover, the effects were studied of applications of different rates and forms of phosphatic fertilizers on the establishment and productivity of these pasture legumes. In general, the applications of phosphate only caused small increases in productivity. The application of phosphate in the presence of gypsum caused greater increases in productivity. However, these increases were relatively small and largely failed to reach normal levels of statistical significance. Frequent applications of fertilizer phosphate made to Lucerne compared with the normal single application in the first year would seem to be markedly inferior. The effects of applying gypsum with phosphate fertilizers can increase the productivity Of Lucerne and clover.
