P-Campus-Ringvorlesung am 25.11.21
Am 25. November findet der nächste Vortrag der P-Campus-Ringvorlesung 2021 statt. Yue Hu vom Leibniz-Institut für Pflanzengenetik und Kulturpflanzenforschung referiert zum Thema "P utilisation capacity of forage legumes from recycling products". Der Vortrag wird auf Englisch gehalten und beginnt um 15:00 Uhr.
Alfalfa (Medicago sativa L.) and red clover (Trifolium pratense L.) are important forage legumes cultivated around the world. Phosphorus (P) plays an important role in their growth, therefore P fertilisers are usually applied during their cultivation. However, the interspecific and intraspecific P efficiency of alfalfa and red clover to utilise P from different fertilisers are less well studied. A field trial and a pot experiment were conducted at the University of Rostock, North-Eastern Germany, to test the P efficiency of eight selected accessions each of alfalfa and red clover in utilising P from different sources. This lecture is based on these two experiments and will introduce some basic knowledge of alfalfa and red clover, background of P recycling products, as well as available results from the two experiments regarding plant P uptake and P efficiency of both species.
