ABSTRACT
The article informs that over the past two years, corn growers in eastern North Carolina have noticed fertility problems on sandy soils. Agronomists are at a loss to pin-point one specific reason. A common factor is that growth concerns tend to show up on lighter, sandier soils rather than on heavier soils. Growers can limit the effects of fertility problems on sandy soils by testing and applying nutrients according to soil type, says Bob Edwards, regional agronomist with the North Carolina Department of Agriculture and Consumer Services. In 2003, cool weather early in the growing season stunted growth of crops on lighter-textured soils. This year, excessive rain had the same effect.
