1. Italian rye-grass grown in the presence of lucerne in sand with no added nitrogen contained, after 18 weeks’ growth, some 2¼ times as much nitrogen as did grass of the same age similarly grown but in the absence of lucerne.

2. In another experiment, where lucerne and grass were grown together in sand:

(a) Where 0·33 gm. of sodium nitrate was added per pot, the grass after only 13½ weeks’ growth contained 2½ times, and after 18 weeks’ 5½ times, as much nitrogen as was supplied as nitrate.

(b) Where 1·0 gm. of nitrate was added, the grass after 13½ weeks contained slightly more nitrogen than was added as nitrate, and after 18 weeks it contained 2¼ times as much.
