Soil Fertility, Fertilizers, and Plant Nutrition

Research at NDSU is the basis for the soil testing program in North Dakota. Research provides the information needed to make North Dakota agriculture competitive in the national and international market. The goal is to obtain basic information about soil that will aid production agriculture, the basis of North Dakota’s economy. Areas of emphasis include: (a) efficient fertilizer use, (b) improved fertilizers, (c) fate of applied nutrients, and (d) accurate nutrient recommendations based on soil testing.
