Final Project Results

Updated April 17, 2019:
Field research work was completed and final data analysis and summary is ongoing. Results showed good correlation of newly proposed soil health chemical tests with traditional chemical test. This suggest that the new methods might be used for basic P and K testing. However, there is no indication that the new chemical tests can provide improved prediction of soil nutrient status and prediction of plant response to fertilizer application.
