The response of Bartlett pear trees to fertilizers is of continuing interest to pear growers in California. An extended series of trials to obtain facts with respect to this relationship was conducted in all of the major pear producing areas in the state. Immediate objectives varied among the trials but, in each case, response in yield to the application of nitrogen was determined.
