Abstract/Contents:"The response of single plants of Aberystwyth S48 timothy (Phleum pratense L.) to increasing rates of ammonium nitrate applied in the spring and autumn is described. All spring treatments markedly increased the number of heads, as well as the total head-length per plant, but autumn dressings had no significant effect. Percentage head-length distribution was also greatly influenced by applications of nitrogenous fertilizer in the spring. Each higher rate of application gave a proportionate increase in the number of heads over 9 cm. in length, and a corresponding reduction in the frequency of those of 4 cm. or less. There was a positive correlation between head-length and number of florets per unit length. The results are discussed in terms of their relationship to current practices in managing timothy crops for seed."
