Abstract

Excretal deposition concentrates nutrients in animal watering and resting areas of pastures, and including these areas in soil sampling may bias fertilizer recommendations. Our objective was to determine the magnitude and extent of nutrient enhancement near a water source in each of two experimental tall fescue (Festuca arundinacea) pastures. The results showed a distinct zone of nutrient enhancement within 20m of the water source that should be either avoided or sampled separately when sampling pastures for fertilizer recommendations. -from Authors
