Investigations on clover nutrition in the East Moreton district of Queensland

Ostrowski, H. (1969) Investigations on clover nutrition in the East Moreton district of Queensland. Queensland Journal of Agricultural and Animal Sciences, 26 (2). pp. 199-208.



The effect of major elements (except nitrogen) and of trace elements on the yield of white clover in the establishment period in the East Moreton district of Queensland was investigated on a number of sites between 1958 and 1967. Lime increased the dry-matter yields in some trials, but higher applications than used may be needed to obtain a more general response on very acid soils. Superphosphate significantly increased the yields of clover in four of five main experiments and in five supporting experiments. At one site high rate of added potash without addition of superphosphate reduced the yield significantly. At another site, on an old cultivation, there was a response to potash independent of superphosphate. Responses to tracre elements were very small, except in the case of molybdenum at
two sites.
