Fertilizer costs have become important factors in crop production in
recent years because of (a) increased energy costs associated with fertilizer
manufacturing and (b) material shortages. Since this trend will probably
continue, it is important that fertilization practices maximize economic returns
and fertilizer efficiencies. We have been evaluating the P fertilization
needs of some of'the major crops grown in southern Idaho since 1973.
This report compares the increased net crop value resulting from P fertilization
at different soil test P levels.
