Digitaria eriantha plants were grown under controlled conditions for a period of three months, during which time they were supplied with the following forms and concentrations of nitrogen: 50 mg/1 NO3 ‐N, 200 mg/1 NO3 ‐N, 200 mg/1 NH4 +‐N and a combined form containing both NO3 ‐N and NH4 +‐N with a nitrogen concentration of 200 mg/1. Control plants received no nitrogen.
