Dry matter yield
Dry matter yield was increased significantly by 206.6 kg N/ha applied in September. Spring dressings also maintained the paspalum in a leafier, more vegetative state with relatively few flowering stems. The yield of dry matter in the following spring was only slightly affected by treatments, but the botanical composition of the sward was affected to a much greater extent. N. applied late the previous summer increased the yield of paspalum, but early applications increased the yield of clover.
