Effects of lime on yields and phosphate uptake by clover in relation to soluble phosphate, manganese, and aluminium in acid soils locations
Aims

To explore the relationship between phosphate fertiliser and micronutrients on acid soils.

Key messages
  • 15 acid soils from 8 soil groups were used to examine the effects of lime yields and phosphorus uptake white clover in relation to changes in exchangeable and soluble phosphorus, manganese and aluminium. There were yield responses to lime in 8 soils, 6 of which occurred only in the absence of phosphate and 2 only in the presence of phosphate.
  • Clover only responded to lime when it contained more than 100 ppm manganese.
  • Clover failed to respond to lime when it contains less than 80 ppm manganese, regardless of the lime effect soil phosphorus.
