    Description

    Black walnut seedlings grown in a clay loam and sandy soil were subjected to two soil moisture regimes and three fertility levels. Fertilization increased growth only under most conditions. Under draught, fertilization retarded growth in the sand. Nitrogen was the element primarily responsible for the greater growth under moist conditions.
