Comparison of Surface and Subsurface Placement of Superphosphate on Growth and Uptake of Phosphorus by Sodded Grasses1

  1. J. R. Neller and
  2. C. E. Hutton2

The experiments were conducted for three years on soils of high fixing capacity for phosphorus using fescue, Coastal Bermuda and Pensacola Bahia grasses. Neither chiseling nor the placement of the superphosphate had any significant effect on growth of grasses.
