Abstract/Contents:"A study was made of the effect of sheep urine and some of its components on herbage production. The return of urine to the sward increased production from the grass species; the clover content of the sward was reduced. The application of nitrogen or potassium fertilizer equivalent to the normal return of nitrogen and potassium in urine increased production, but not as much as urine. The return of nitrogen and potassium fertilizer together increased production and altered botanical composition in much the same way as did urine. On a grass-dominant urine-treated sward the application of nitrogen fertilizer increased the "efficiency" of urine. The effect of urine on a grass/clover sward was almost entirely due to its nitrogen and potassium content. The water and indole acetic acid content of urine had no effect on pasture production or composition."
