Olson, R.A. and Rhoades, H.F. (1953) Commercial fertilizers for winter wheat in relation to the properties of Nebraska soils (Research Bulletin: Bulletin of the Agricultural Experiment Station of Nebraska No. 172)


ISSN 0097-1503


It is the purpose of this bulletin to report the investigations that have been made correlating soil properties and fertilization practices with yields of winter wheat. Since the success or failure of fertilization practices is so dependent on specific soil conditions, an attempt has been made here to further characterize the major soils of the different sections of the state which are devoted to wheat production and to analyze fertilizer practices and results in relation to the soil properties determined. The data are summarized for the four sections of the state designated as southeastern, east-south-central, west-south-central and western Nebraska. These subdivisions have been made because of variations in soils, climate and customary soil management practices; thus, each section is reasonably uniform as to these factors.
