It was developed by the authors of the book, Southern Forages. 56 pages x 6 in. Forage Fertilization is a compilation of papers presented at symposium held at Muscle Shoals, Alabama, July , The major objectives of the symposium were to assemble knowledgeable forage workers for an interchange of new information and ideas.

The chapter covers two situations where farm business records were made available by farmers for educational purposes.

Use of micronutrient fertilizer materials should only be undertaken with very clear objectives (i.e., correction of clearly identified Zn deficiencies of corn grown on soils high in pH or P) in mind and with a knowledge of previously successful rates of application. Indiscriminate use of micronutrients is more likely. 2. What are forage crops? Forage crops are plants which, when grown as a crop, have been found to produce high yields of plant material, which are also high in nutrients suitable for livestock requirements for maintenance and production. Natural pasture is a forage but is not grown as a crop, so is termed forage, not a forage crop. This online book is simply the most comprehensive work on the use of tall fescue as a forage crop. In addition to a complete overview of the current state of knowledge regarding tall fescue for forage, it provides a very thorough history of tall fescue from its origins, through the discovery of the endophyte as the causal agent for fescue. fertilizer application, and the influence of P and K fertility on alfalfa forage quality. Essential for Plant Processes P and K are macronutrients, which means plants require them in relatively high amounts compared to many other nutrients. Both nutrients are essential for plant growth.
