To secure information preliminary to the laying out of field experiments for a study of the value of liming and growing inoculated legumes on the Grundy silt loam, an important soil type in Southern Iowa, tests have been conducted on this soil during the past winter in the greenhouse and laboratory. These tests were planned to study the effect of various amounts of limestone and to determine the influence of lime alone and in combination with certain fertilizers on crop yields and on the biological and chemical conditions in the soil.
