Synopsis

Synopsis

On shallow Ephrata fine sandy loam soil, the nitrogen uptake in the grass and clover was greatest from midsummer irrigation at 7- to 11-day frequency and 12-inch clipping height than a longer frequency and less height. Total nitrogen uptake increased in the grass and decreased in the clover with increased nitrogen fertilizer rates. The clover supplied 99 pounds of nitrogen per acre to the grass when no fertilizer nitrogen was applied. The nitrogen in the grass, other than that from fertilizer nitrogen, increased in relationship to clover yields.
