The main yield components of grass are the number of leaves per unit area and dry matter content. Higher yields come from optimising leaf numbers, maintaining a green leaf canopy and achieving a high dry matter content. A balanced fertiliser programme including all macro and micronutrients is essential to help manage all of these components.
Identify and diagnose if your grass is suffering from nutrient deficiencies and learn how to control or correct the deficiency. Choose a nutrient below to learn more about the symptoms of its deficiency in grassland and its effect on sward growth and development.
