Application of soil and plant analysis to nutrition of tomatoes in south west Nigeria

, : Application of soil and plant analysis to nutrition of tomatoes in south west Nigeria. Acta Horticulturae (53): 235-247

Plant nutrient requirements were determined by soil, leaf and plant analysis. Organic C, total N and nitrate-N were used as indexes of available N. Critical levels by these methods were 9 p.p.m. of NO3-N, 2% C and 0.1% total N. The P sorption capacity of soils determined at a standard concentration of 2 p.p.m. of P was more suitable than the Bray 1 method for assessing available P. Critical sorption value was about 6 p.p.m. of P. Critical K level was 12 mg K/100 g of exchangeable K.

A review of soil erosion research in the West African Sahel finds that there are insufficient data on which to base policy. This is largely because of the difficulties of measuring erosion and the other components of "soil life", and bec...
