Summary

Barley (Hordewn vulgare L.) variety N.P. 13 gave a higher yield of grain when an aqueous solution of phosphate was applied to the tops 70–80 days after sowing as compared with the controls sprayed with de-ionized water only. The beneficial effect of spray was generally more pronounced when the plants had received a small dose of phosphatic fertilizer by basal dressing than when they were grown without soil-applied phosphorus.
