Katherine Rural Review P a g e | At the fertiliser levels applied in the work reported by Norman, an introduced grass would be expected to yield the amounts in the table below (Cameron 2008). Table 3. Expected introduced grass pasture yields with the fertilisers applied to the native pastures Treatment Average Fertiliser applied kg/ha Expected Dry matter yield for an introduced grass kg/ha N P S 0 0 0 0 N/A 0 N Low P + S 0 11 64.7 4000 Low fertiliser 37.8 11 64.7 5200 High Fertiliser 74.8 21.7 112.7 6700 (N/A: introduced grasses are generally grown with at least some basal P and S fertiliser) While the High fertiliser treatment applied to the native grasses doubled the yield of the pasture, the yield is only similar to that expected from an introduced grass without nitrogen fertiliser.
