Western Australia, Nitrogen fertilisers.

HIGH yields of oats have been obtained with nitrogen fertilisers on newly-developed scrub plain areas of the south coastal districts. This suggests that excellent crops can be expected here after the land has grown subterranean clover for a number of years. The use of nitrogen fertiliser on new land, in addition to super, copper and zinc has resulted in production of a much better straw for burning to control suckers and poison plants. Sulphate of ammonia at 56 lb. per acre, is a suitable application.
