Abstract


Research carried out at the Mountain Grassland Research Basis of Blana (Bucegi Mountains) aimed at improving the grassland of Nardus stricta locate 1,800 m above sea level. Research started in the year 2000 with the establishment of a trial made up of five variants: T – natural grassland (control); A – natural grassland fertilised with NPK; B – natural grassland fertilised with NPK + animal folding; C – natural grassland, amended + fertilised with NPK + animal folding. The paper presents the effect of long-term treatments (applied every single year starting with the year 1995) on dry matter production and on the floristic composition in the year 2011.


Keywords
