The effects of five years of application of N, P and K fertilizers at three levels, and of agricultural lime at two levels, on the herbage yield of Eragrostis curvula are discussed. The experiment was carried out on leached soils under an average annual rainfall of 900mm. Significant responses in yield were obtained to N, P and K fertilizers but there was no response to lime.
