TEN-YEAR SUMMARY OF SOIL TEST RESULTS


Compiled by


William L. Pritchett





Abstract


A summary of test results of soil samples submitted to the Soils Testing
Laboratory, Soils Department, Florida Agricultural Experiment Station, during the
ten-year period, July, 19U4, through June, 1954, is given in tabular form.

No attempt was made to interpret the data because samples were not taken by
standard sampling procedure and sample bias, or failure of the sample to represent
the average fertility condition of the area sampled. However, in view of the
large number of samples tested, it is believed that a general view of the fertility
status of Florida soils on a county, soil area, and state basis can be gained by
a study of the data. Tables indicating the relationship of pH, available calcium,
magnesium, phosphorus, potassium, and nitrate nitrogen to crops growing on the soil
and to soil areas are presented. These data may be useful to local agricultural
leaders, extension specialists, industry and experiment station workers in pro-
moting their respective programs.

TEN-YEAR SUMMARY OF SOIL TEST RESULTS (194-1954)


The Soil Testing Laboratory of the Soils Department, Agricultural
Experiment Station, has been analyzing soil samples for the residents of the
State of Florida for many years. Soil testing and research relating thereto has
functioned under Project 446 since 1944. A summary of the data from
sample analysed during this ten-year period is given in this report.

During the past decade over 36,400 soil, water, and limestone samples
have been analysed by the laboratory with approximately 105,000 individual
determinations being made* The data sheets for 13,273 of the soil samples
were summarized with the aid of IBM cards. A large number of data sheets
could not be included due to incomplete information or because they were
for samples taken for research purposes.

It should be pointed out that since the analytical procedures have
changed during the ten-year period, the numerical values for the available
soil nutrients have also changed* For that reason only the relative
designations as to very low, low, medium, high, and very high amounts of
nutrients available in the soil for each method were used.

Distribution of Samplest Although soil samples were submitted to the
laboratory from all of the 67 counties, the largest percentage came from
Alachua and neighboring counties. Besides proximity to the laboratory,
population density and intensiveness of farming are factors influencing
the use made of this service by residents of the counties. This is pointed
up by the relatively large number of samples submitted from Dade, Lake,
Duval and Gadsden counties and the small number from Lafayette, Liberty,
Charlotte, Monroe and Glades.

Grouped by general soil areas, 19 percent of the samples came from the
well-drained sandy loams to loamy sands of North and West Florida; 35 per-
cent from the well-drained sands; 36 percent from the imperfectly drained
flatwood sands; 6 percent from the organic soil areas; 3 percent were from
the calcareous areas and less than 1 percent were not classified as to area.

A large percentage of the soil samples were not identified as to the
crop, being grown or to be grown thereon. Those so identified are grouped
below:


Crop No. of Samples Percentage of Samples
Commercial vegetables 1710 13
Corn 404 3
Cover crops (legumes) 164 1

Soil samples from fields producing eight principal crops were grouped
by general soil areas in following table.

pH and Netrient Levels as Related to Crops and Soil Areas The data from
individual samples were grouped according to (1) crops being grown and
(2) the general soil area, so that the percentage of the samples falling
into each category of pH and available nutrient levels are shown in the
following tables.
