In 1951 fertilizer trials v/ere conducted with the major crops in the principal soil areas of the state. It will be the purpose of this report to summarize in tabular form the results of some of the outlying 1951 fertilizer experiments. The planting of the small grain crop over most of the state was done on about the average dates. The June, July, and August temperatures were below normal. The rainfall for the same period was above normal. The weather conditions throughout the growing season were favorable for the growth and development of the small grain crop. The corn crop, especially in the eastern part of the state, was much retarded by the cool summer temperatures and did not reach maturity before the first killing frost. In the following tables the effects of fertilizer treatments on the various crops are presented.
