Abstract

Application of superphosphate in a dosage of 25 lbs. of phosphoric acid (P2O5), per acre, either alone or with green manure (Cajanus indicus) produced grain of low average protein content, viz., 9.3%, but higher ash content. Supplementation of the superphosphatic treatments with ammonium sulphate at the rate of 60 lbs. nitrogen per acre increased considerably the protein content of the grain which averaged 10.5%. Animal experiments showed that there was no noticeable effect of the variations in the protein content of samples as a result of fertilization on the biological value of the protein determined by the "balance sheet method". However, the amount of available or "net protein" was comparatively more in the grain characterized by higher protein content as a result of fertilization. The results of thiamine and nicptinic acid assays did not reveal any striking differential effect of fertilization on these constituents.
