The nutritive value, yield and botanical composition of irrigated pastures as influenced by nitrogen fertilising

Roberts BR, Scott JD


The performances of grass and grass/legume swards at three levels of nitrogen were compared under irrigation over a three-year period. The swards were grazed by dairy cows and the influence of nitrogen on dry matter yield, protein content, protein yield and botanical composition was measured.
