Cover for Effect of fertilization, tree species, plantation density and sowing mixture on pasture production and soil characteristics in silvopastoral systems.

The aim of the experiment was to test the effect of three fertilizer treatments (no fertilizer, organic fertilizer and inorganic fertilizer) on cocksfoot pasture established under two tree species (Betula alba and Pinus radiata) at two densities (2500 and 833 trees/ha). After 7 years the effects of ...

Cover for Tree growth and pasture production under sewage sludge fertilization.

The objective of these experiments was to compare the effect on pasture production and tree growth in a silvopastoral system of no fertilization, three doses of sewage sludge, with or without liming, and the fertilization usually used in the region. The experiment was conducted over 3 years in the...

Cover for Application of limed sewage sludge to a young <i xmlns="http://www.w3.org/1999/xhtml">Pinus radiata</i> plantation on acid soil.

In this study the effectiveness of addition of sewage sludge (alkaline, rich in N, P and Ca, and with low levels of heavy metals) originating from a dairy industry to fertilize a silvopastoral system, established on a 10-year-old Pinus radiata plantation, was assessed. The experiment consisted of...

Cover for Pasture production under different tree species and spacing in an Atlantic silvopastoral system.

The effect on pasture production of six different tree densities and six species (Pseudotsuga menziesii, Pinus pinaster, Pinus radiata, Betula celtiberica, Quercus rubra and Castanea sativa) was investigated during 3 years. Under P. menziesii and P. pinaster, pasture production decreases starting...

Cover for The potential for agroforestry in the Falkland Islands.

In the Falkland Islands (UK dependent territory; lat. 51-52°S, long. 57-61°W) land use is almost exclusively sheep grazing and the vegetation is acid moorland with no indigenous tree cover. Shelter from the strong cold winds would be extremely advantageous to sheep flocks and might allow crops to...
