Abstract/Contents:Discusses soil testing and management plans required by the NR 151. Explains that "NR 151 states that fertilizers should be applied based on 'appropriate' soil tests. According to the DNR [Department of Natural Resources] technical standard...'appropriate] means a Bray or Mehlich-3 soil test for araes that are managed differently." Describes sampling techniques and details a process "for consistent and accurate results." Explains that "for the results of a soil test to be meaningful, the relationship between the soil P [phosphorus] level and a crop response must be known." Profiles the Bray and Mehlich-3 soil tests, recommending that "the most important factor in selecting a soil test method is whether or not the interpretations of the soil test results are based on turfgrass response." Also briefly discusses soil testing labs, stating that "unlike the rules for agricultural nutrient management plans, turfgrass soil samples do not need to be analyzed by a soil testing lab with certification from the Wisconsin Department of Agriculture, Trade and Consumer Protection (DATCP). However, using one of these laboratories ensures soil test results and recommendations will be generated through analytical procedures approved by the University of Wisconsin with consistent results."
