Title: Values of surface application of limestone and superphosphate on dikeland and upland pastures
Author: Cameron, C. D. T.; Hamilton, L. S.
Abstract: ‘Dikelands’ in the Bay of Fundy region are low-lying areas of water-deposited silt. They have resulted from centuries of flooding by high tides in coastal areas. Dikes now protect an estimated 76,000 acres of this land from flooding by salt tides. Little information has been available on the value of this land as pasture for beef cattle. This is a report on the gains of yearling beef steers on dikeland and on adjacent upland pastures that received surface applications of either limestone or limestone and superphosphate. The trials were conducted at Nappan, N.S., from 1952 to 1957.
