- W. V. Bartholomew,
- W. D. Shrader and
- A. J. Englehorn2
Nitrogen declines with cultivation of Clarion-Webster soil were largest under a cropping system of continuous corn followed in the order of decreasing decline by the 2-year rotation of corn and oats, the 5-year rotation with 2 years of meadow and the 3-year rotation with 1 year of meadow. Plots with high initial nitrogen lost more nitrogen and a larger percentage of total nitrogen than plots with low initial nitrogen.Please view the pdf by using the Full Text (PDF) link under 'View' to the left.
