Variability in Nutrient Uptake and Yield of Clonally Propagated Kenland Red Clover1
- William A. Seay and
- Lawrence Henson2
Dry matter yield, total uptake of soil and fertilizer P, utilization of fertilizer P mixed through the soil or top-dressed and uptake of soil and, fertilizer K varied much more among 30 clones of Kenland red clover than among replicates of clones. These same properties varied widely among 10 clones selected for longevity. It appears that plant yield or uptake of nutrients by clover or like plants can be measured more precisely by using all plants propagated from the same clone than by using seed which vary in genetic character.Please view the pdf by using the Full Text (PDF) link under 'View' to the left.
