Abstract

Abstract

An ion exchange resin bag technique was compared to six other methods for estimating N availability. Under a controlled greenhouse environment and with well-mixed soils, the resin technique correlated well with more traditional N-availability indices. However, resin bags on site in three forest stands yielded different N-availability estimates than those in the greenhouse. This suggests that the resin bag method may be sensitive to on-site conditions not discerned by more widely accepted laboratory techniques.
