  • In a sandy loam soil at Nsukka, the effects of cutting management and fertilizer-N treatment on revitalization of a run-down pasture were investigated in 2000 and 2001. Increasing the interval between cuts from 3 to 12 weeks increased the proportion of stem relative to leaf blade in the grass herbage in the second year. The proportion of leaf to stem at 3-weekly interval of cuts was 54.6:1; this ratio had fallen to 13.3:1 at 6 weeks, 4.7:1 at 9 weeks and 7:1 at the 12 weekly cutting intervals… CONTINUE READING
