Plant uptake of phosphorus applied on the surface of sodded pasture grasses was greater than when placed 3 to 6 inches below the soil surface. 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.
