• Fertilization of Annual Range in Northern Israel

      Ofer, Y.; Seligman, N. (Society for Range Management, 1969-09-01)
      Trials were run for two years on eight typical range sites in the north of Israel to assess the effect of nitrogenous and phosphatic fertilizers on a sward composed of mixed annual mediterranean species. Responses of economic value were obtained where the vegetation grew on terra-rossa, on colluvium-alluvium derived from terra-rossa and on reddish-brown basaltic grumosol. On dark-brown basaltic grumosol and on light-coloured rendzina the response was too small to be of economic significance. The effect of fertilization on early growth was larger and more consistent than on the flush season yield.
