DescriptionGrowth responses to application of all combinations of N, P, and S on four forest and three grassland soils showed that a significant N-S interaction existed for all seven soils. For two grassland soils, a significant response to phosphorus was obtained in combination with nitrogen and sulfur. The volcanic-ash-derived soils and the Klicker soil had the highest potential yield responses to fertilization.
Fertilization programs involved with soils which have chemical properties similar to these studied should consider only fertilizer sources which contain both N and S in all cases, and N, S, and P for certain grassland soils.
