Plant-Nutrient Losses in Lysimeter Percolates1

  1. F. R. Dreibelbis and

Plant nutrient losses in the percolates from monolith lysimeters over the period 1940–1955 were analyzed for variables of soil type, farming practice and amounts of percolate. Under permanent grass the depth of rooting was associated with percolation amounts while farming practice governed the amount of nutrient losses. Under rotation crops the tighter Keene soils showed greater nutrient losses than the more permeable Muskingum soils. Nutrient losses under different farming practice showed a mixed response.
