Mineral Nutrient Depletion in US Farm and Range Soils

  title={Mineral Nutrient Depletion in US Farm and Range Soils},
  author={Michael Karr},
Agriculture, both crops and livestock, depletes soils of mineral nutrients, because of the removal of nutrients contained in the produce sold. Since the 1950's the increase in farm productivity and efficiency has not always resulted in a corresponding increase in the replenishment of mineral nutrients to the soils through commercially available means. This is because many growers in the US do not have sufficient management expertise to account for or replace all plant nutrient elements removed…
