In other words, the fertility level we are working to achieve for each soil is the foundation required for plant growth. Our objective is the right amount of everything. Once we achieve the proper nutrient load, then we have the foundation to begin achieving proper fertility support for plant growth. Whatever the crop in the production sequence—corn, soybeans, rice or wheat—these generally can be grown in the same soils without too much trouble. Rice production can work with a little less calcium.
These have now expanded to two- and three-day seminars several times a year. Foreign work followed, and so coffee and banana production were added to crop experiences. Popcorn, timber and turf grass production came along in the early 1980s, followed closely by rapeseed and ornamentals. Peanut and commercial herb growers signed up. All of these crops helped to demonstrate that supplying the correct fertility to achieve a proper balance worked in all types of agriculture. The mail and UPS bring soil samples routinely to Neal Kinsey’s service.

He found the same thing as that little old pie chart in the textbook.
