Spatial variability of switchgrass (Panicum virgatum L.) yield as related to soil parameters in a small field
Author(s): N. Di Virgilio, A. Monti and G. Venturi
Journal: Field Crops Research
Article Topic(s): Human Use,Nutrients
Research Setting(s): Agricultural
Species Referenced: Panicum virgatum (Switchgrass),
AbstractBiomass yields in a 5 ha Panicum virgatum field varied from 3-20 Mg/ha. Biomass yield was found to be correlated with soil nitrogen, phosphorus, moisture and pH, as well as interactions of these soil parameters.
