Summary

Summary

A study of the effects of various applications of borax upon the yield of snap beans grown on nine soil types is reported. The results obtained indicate that the tolerance of a soil to applications of borax is correlated with the exchange capacity of the soil, and with the amount of available boron present in the soil.

Twenty-eight plants are classified into four groups according to their tolerance to borax applied to a Norfolk fine sandy loam.

A study of the residual effect of applications of borax to field plats indicates that borax is readily removed from the soil by leaching.
