    Manures can supply nitrogen (N) beyond the year of application, producing residual effects that are are not fully expressed in short-term experiments. From 1997 to 2003 we conducted a field experiment on a sandy soil in the Netherlands to quantify the residual N effect. Treatments comprised different time series of cattle slurry applied at rates ranging from 0 to 220 kg total-N ha-1 yr-1, while compensating for differences in available potassium and phosphorus. Dry matter and N yields of silage maize responded positively (P
