An experiment on the very poor alpine pasture, the Geo montani-Nardetum, was started in 1930. Fertilizer was applied in the years 1930-1936 (first treatment) and 1946-50 (second treatment). Until now, the influence of the fertilization is visible in the species composition of the vegetation of the squares, most clearly for the treatments with limestone. The content in N and P of the leaves still varies between the squares with different treatments. Leaves from squares once having received N or P have higher contents in N or P than the others. The pH of the soil is higher in squares treated with limestone.
