Abstract/Contents:"A pot scale trial investigated the agronomic performance of two organomineral fertilizers (OMF15-15:4:4 and OMF10-10:4:4) in comparison with urea and biosolids granules to establish ryegrass (Lolium perenne L.). Two soils of contrasting characteristics and nitrogen (N) application rates in the range of 0-300 kg ha-1 were used over a period of 3 years. Fertilizer effects were determined on: (1) dry matter yield (DMY) and crop responses, (2) nitrogen use efficiency (NUE), and (3) selected soil chemical properties. Ryegrass responded linearly (R2 ≥ 0.75; P < 0.001) to organomineral fertilizers (OMF) application increasing DMY by 227% compared with biosolids but to a lesser extent than urea (range: 1755%). NUE was related to concentration of readily available N in the fertilizer: urea and OMF showed significantly (P < 0.05) greater N recoveries than biosolids. Total N in soil and soil organic matter showed increments (P < 0.05), which depended on the organic-N content in the fertilizer applied. Soil extractable P levels remained close to constant after 3 years of continuous OMF application but increased with biosolids and decreased with urea, respectively (P < 0.05). The application of biosolids changed soil P Index from 5 to 6; hence, there is a need to monitor soil P status. Both OMF10 and OMF15 formulations are suitable for application in ryegrass."
