IMPROVING GRASS LAND. BRITISH METHODS. USE OF NITROGEN. [Newspaper Article] — Snowy River Mail — 15 May 1914
IMPROVING GRASS LAND. BRITISH METHODS. USE OF NITROGEN. "When considering the best method of improving any partciular piece of grass (states a British expert) it is most important to reinmnaber the na ture of the soil and the length of time that the field has been laid down. The soil of an old lpastu'e is nearly always rich in nitrogen, more particularly it the land is inclined to be sthiff, though a good deal of this nitrogen may lint he in a readily available condition. In such (cases, it would generally be a waste to apply a manure containing naitrogen, but as narhly all old pastures tend to become deficient in phosplhates, and sometimes also in lime. a manure supplying these substances is almost sure to give a good return. It is for this reason that basic slug has been found so effective upont old pastures; it supplies a considerablo quantity of phospuato and at the same time a small percentago ot froee lime "A really black soil inc lined to grow sorrel and a considerable quanti...
