Abstract

(1) The use of sewage sludge, horse dung, NPK-fertilizer, and NPK-fertilizer plus bark was tested to improve yield of grasses and clover sown on iron-mine tailings. (2) Addition of only fertilizer had little effect. With addition of fertilizer and bark a grass sward was successfully established, and with sewage sludge and horse dung the cover was very dense. (3) The water-holding capacity was improved by the addition of organic material. (4) When bark was added with the fertilizer, the level of NPK fertilizer (300 or 600 kg ha-1) had no effect.
