Abstract

Increasing levels of N, P and K fertilization increased total nutrient uptake and the percentage of protein, P and K, in the Coastal bermudagrass forage. P and K content of associated crimson clover increased with increasing rates of application of each nutrient. Percent recovery of N and P in the forage declined with increasing rates of fertilization of each nutrient, but percent K recovery increased with increasing K rates. N-K balance was important in maintaining an optimum K level in the forage and reducing K-deficiency symptoms. Tame pastures supplement forest range and reduce the overall cost below that of tame pastures above.
