Title: Benefits of Reducing Nutrient Variation in Fertilizer Mixes
Authors: Chamberlain, Peter J.
Shumway, C. Richard
Keywords: Benefits
Nutrient deficiencies
Issue Date: 1994
Abstract: This article examines nutrient deficiencies (below guaranteed levels) in major blended commercial fertilizers and their economic impact on net revenues of Texas farmers. Violations by fertilizer manufactures in meeting specific labeled nutrient levels were more than offset in economic value by excesses in other nutrients and by production of blends that contained more than the required levels of all nutrients. The study concluded that economic losses to Texas farmers would likely be associated with requiring nutrient levels to be more tightly distributed around the guaranteed or labeled nutrient levels.
