ENGLERTH District Conservationist This is a good time to evaluate your plants fertilizer needs for the next growing used and in association with other management can be the key to a successful conservation The fer tilizer needs must be met in relation to the ex pected crop The problem of maintaining adequate supplies of nutrient elements in the soil of humid regions becomes more evident as the years go Virgin fertility has largely been The farmer who is progressive is no longer satisfied with yields which can The present concern is primarily with such plant food elements as and In Comal County nitrogen and phosphate is the main As soils become older agriculturally and the yields are stepped up by growing improved hybrids and disease resistant by using improved tillage practices and by applying more trace element deficienceies If soil fertility has been depleted due to leaching or past crop production this problem is an important one and should be adequately considered in developing a and plant conservation The fertility problem should be approached It should be comsidered along with other conservation alternatives such as kind and sequence of crops in a Conservation

an adequate fertilization program should be to supply year in and year out the amounts of fertilizer that will result in sustained yields and net This means the most ef ficient use of fertilizer and other This does not necessarily mean that it would be con sidered logical to add to a soil all the fertilizer at one time or in one year to bring the fertility up to its original There is a difference between the maintenance of a fertility level and building fertility up to a maintenance This building up process and cost may be distributed over a period of The physical condition of the which a factor in governing soil mositure relationships and how efficiently moisture is stored and is also an item to They may be a factor to consider in determining the beginning level of the fertility As crop yields are residues are As residues are increased and properly soil improvement biological and chemical fertility is Fertilizer may be the key to the production of adequate residues for adequate soil improvement or It takes pounds of plant residue from each crop to maintain the same level of organic matter in the soil each Soil organic matter has been the builder agent that has compensated to some degree for improper soil management in the On unfertilized 95 percent of the nitrogen and 50 percent of the phosphorus absorbed by plants comes from the breakdown of soil organic Since some producers removed all the grain sorphym residue by bailing it for feed last you amy need more fertilizer this year than in the This agronomic principle has practical ap plication in determining fertilizer needs for a newly planted and managed pasture as Some of you may have experienced the ability of improved grass to establish themselves more readily on land which was recently very dense in brush and has been dozed just prior to In effect his area has natural or virgin fertility due to past years accumulation of soil organic matter and no soil on the same farm and in an adjacent field which has been in field crops for many years the improved grass did not do well at The soil ogranic matter was extremely low and the fertility level which was added was not enough to provide the necessary elements for a successful This is a com mon occurence in Comal Soil s in dense vegetated areas may also be low in fertility especially where soil erosion has The same principle also takes
