The effect of organic mulches on yields and phosphorus utilization by plants in acid soils

Abstract

The effect of organic mulches on the yields of plants and on their utilization of applied phosphate was determined by using a variety of crops grown in a Manitoba acid soil. The plants gave larger yields and utilized a greater portion of applied phosphate when the soil was mulched than when unmulched. The increased utilization of applied phosphate by the… (More)
