Radiata pine (Pinus radiata) and cocksfoot grass (Dactylis glomerata) were grown in small pots containing grassland soils collected from seven sites in the South Island montane zone. After one year the overall mean dry matter yield of pine exceeded that of grass by a factor of 2.6, and uptake of all nutrients by pine was substantially greater. Mean soil pH was 0.3 units lower after pine growth than after grass. Organic carbon (C), total nitrogen (N), and organic phosphorus (P) levels were 15–19… CONTINUE READING
