Phosphorus Fertilization And Nutrient Composition Of Forage

Twelve plant species occurring in the understory of young pine plantations in the South Carolina Coastal Plain were analyzed for phosphorus, calcium, magnesium, potassium and crude protein. Nutrient content of foliar samples from unfertilized and fertilized sites showed no significant difference for most elements. Forage production on fertilized sites was three times greater than unfertilized sites.
