Abstract/Contents:"The nature of competition between a grass species either invading or introduced by sowing into an established grass sward and the established sward was examined by using a divided-pot technique. The species studied were Lolium perenne S23 and Festuca rubra S59, grown at two levels of N and P. Data are given for DM yield, tiller number, species ratio and uptake of N and P. The results show that competition for nutrients was a dominant factor and anything which affected this, such as prior establishment of one species, had an important effect on the success of the introduced species which amounted, under some conditions, to complete inhibition of growth of the latter. The data throw some light on the means whereby dominance is maintained in a pasture community."
