Investigations of Ammonium Chloride as a Fertilizer for Forage Crops and Corn1

  1. George W. McClure Jr. and
  2. Albert S. Hunter2



At low to moderate rates of nitrogen, crop yield increases from ammonium chloride compared well with those from ammonium sulfate. When high rates of nitrogen as ammonium chloride were broadcast on growing grass, some damage to stand resulted. At high rates, and especially when in contact with plant leaves, chloride was more toxic to timothy than sulfate was. Most of the cbAoride applied to well-drained soils was lost by leaching within one year.
