INCORPORATION OF SOIL TEST RESULTS IN THE DEVELOPMENT OF OPTIMAL LONG-TERM FERTILIZER POLICIES FOR FARMERS

The economics of using soil test results for making fertilizer recommendations in the presence of nutrient carry-over are discussed. A model for maximizing long run returns with nutrient carry-over is presented. Dynamic programming is used to determine fertilizer applications for grain sorghum given an initial soil test value.
