Students are conducted a soil fertility experiment in ABAS 3350 at the Horticultural
Education Center. The procedure was developed at NCSU. The purpose of the experiment
was to determine which fertilizer rate would: (1) minimize fertilizer leaching from
post of ryegrass, (2) maximize plant growth, and (3) produce the greenest foliage
The experiment illustrates environmental concepts in groundwater protection (minimize
fertilizer leaching) and improving air quality by increasing photosynthesis.
