The Effects of Continued Use of Heavy Rates of Fertilizers on Forage Production and Quality of Coastal Bermudagrass1

  1. F. L. Fisher and
  2. A. G. Caldwell2



Coastal Bermudagrass produced an average (1954–57) of 13.0 tons of 13% protein hay per acre when fertilized with 1000 pounds of nitrogen annually. Without nitrogen 2.7 tons of 8% protein hay was produced. Four hundred pounds of N annually produced 8.6 tons of 12% protein hay. Plant and soil analyses suggest a 5-1-2 ratio of N, P2O5 and K2O should be applied to obtain high production. Liming is necessary to control soil acidity.
