Soil reaction and weather conditions can influence responses to phosphorus fertilization, according to field trials with potatoes in the Tulelake area of northern California. Further research is needed to clarify the phosphorus availability of soils and potato plant utilization. Studies are also in progress toward obtaining a better understanding of the use of soil analysis to predict phosphorus requirements of these organic soils.
