Abstract/Contents:"The N concentration was monitored in grazed pastures of kikuyu (Pennisetum clandestinum) where regular applications of nitrogen fertilizer removed any nitrogen deficiency for growth. The heavy fertilizer applications maintained supracritical N concentrations of 3.7-5.3% in the last fully-formed laminae. The concentration increased with increasing temperature or growth rate, but not with changing soil water content. Supracritical N concentrations will buffer the onset of a N deficiency, and the difference between the actual and critical N concentrations provides a quantitative measure of reserve N. Estimates of reserve N in a heavily fertilized pasture with a top yield of 2,000 kg DM/ha, ranged from zero to 32 kg N/ha. This is sufficient to supply N to an additional 0-914 kg DM/ha without diluting the average N concentration below the critical level."
