THE STATUS OF FERTILIZER TRIALS WITH CORN IN JAMAICA

A summary is given of all the fertilizer investigations on corn which have been carried out in Jamaica from 1938 to 1968. A great deal more experimental detail is included than is usual for a review paper, since little published work is available. Investigations by Government, the University of the West Indies and the Fertilizer Industry are grouped according to soil type, which forms the basis for discussion and evaluation. The majority of corn fertilizer trials have been located on the bauxite soils - St-Ann Clay Loam and Chudleigh Clay. However. information is also given for corn fertilizer trials on Deepdene Clay, Wirefence Clay Loam, Brysons Clay Loam, Newell Loam, Carron Hall Clay, Belfield Clay, Caymanas Sandy Loam and Caymanas Clay Loam.
