Thornton, H. G. and Nicol, H. 1934. The effect of sodium nitrate on the growth and nitrogen content of a lucerne and grass mixture. The Journal of Agricultural Science. 24 (2), pp. 269-282.
|Authors||Thornton, H. G. and Nicol, H.|
1. Inoculated lucerne was grown alone and in association with Italian rye grass, in pots of sand watered with food solution and given three different doses of sodium nitrate.
2. The dose of nitrate did not affect the dry weight or nitrogen content of lucerne when grown alone, save that the highest dose checked the root growth somewhat.
3. When lucerne and Italian rye grass were grown in association, the growth of the grass varied directly with the dose of nitrate applied, and the growth of the lucerne varied inversely to it. Checking of the lucerne growth was probably due to root competition with the grass.
