Orchardgrass (Dactylis glomerata) grown on Davidson clay loam showed a yield response to N in 1949 and 1950, to N and K from 1951 to 1953 and to N, P and K from 1954 to 1962. During the latter period, yield response to a given nutrient occurred only if adequate amounts of the other two were applied. Lower yields were obtained with 171 than with 114 kg of N/ha in 1958 without applied K and in 1960 to 1962 with applied K. This apparently resulted from higher uptake of K with 171 kg of applied N and a cumulative depletion of available K in the soil.
