Effect of split applications of cattle slurry and mineral fertilizer–N on the yield of silage maize in a slurry-based cropping system

Abstract

The recovery of soil mineral nitrogen (N) by crops, and its subsequent utilisation for dry matter (DM) production may be increased when the application of N is postponed until after crop emergence. The significance of this strategy for silage maize was studied in nine field experiments on Dutch sandy soils from 1983 to 1988. In five experiments the effect… (More)
