Abstract/Contents:"Ryegrass plants were grown in pots of Horotiu sandy loam, either singly or as a dense sward, with a range of P fertiliser rates and regular harvests. Plants were non-mycorrhizal. P inflows into roots increased with P fertiliser rate. Sward plants absorbed up to 14.3% of the P fertiliser added, and single plants up to 7.6%. Sward plants absorbed most of the fertiliser P available to them within two weeks of germinating. After that, root growth ceased except at the highest P fertiliser rate used, and P inflow into roots decreased from 10-15 to 10-16 mole/cm/sec. Single plants, however, had continuous root growth and P uptake throughout the two month experiment, except for those at the two lowest fertiliser rates. Singly grown plants absorbed much more P than each plant in the dense swards. In single plants, root length/root weight ratio increased with increasing P fertiliser. Plant growth was dependant [dependent] on continued P uptake by the roots, which only occurred if new roots were continually produced and new volumes of soil tapped for P. Non-growing root systems absorbed very little P."
