Contents: 1. Summary. 2. Details of research. 2.1 Problem definition glasshouse trial. 2 (a) Vegetative yield affected by topsoil acidity. 2 (b) Root growth in acid subsoil . 2.2 Field Trials. (a) Wheat - Grain yield - Vegetative Growth. (b) Clover. (c) Acidification of soils from the use of nitrogen fertilisers 3. Appendices - trial data. Summary: 1. Problem defining glasshouse trials on soil from 12 sites were conducted in summer/autumn. Results showed that the components of soil acidity affecting wheat growth... 2. The lime and molybdenum requirements of wheat and clover were examined at the sites from which soil came for the glasshouse trials. 3. Calculations of potential acidification rates from the use of nitrogen fertilisers were made- 80GL7, A short summary has been prepared. For those wishing more detail a full report follows the summary. Appendices containing all data from the trials follow the report. Summary: 1.
