DescriptionReview of current literature establishes that forest fertilization is a proven, accepted management practice in limited areas of the South where lack of one or more mineral nutrients seriously curtails pine growth and where moderate additions of these nutrients markedly increase yields. In most of the South, however, and especially in the West Gulf Coastal Plain, general use will be deferred until amounts, kinds, and schedules of application can be reliably specified for individual soils.
