SS-AGR-442: Soil Organic Matter Impacts on Sugarcane Production on Florida Mineral Soils

Figure 1. Relationship between soil organic matter content (depth of 0–6 inches) and relative sugar yield (cumulative plant and first ratoon) across three adjacent trials on Florida mineral soils. In the Cate-Nelson analysis (Cate and Nelson 1965), the vertical and horizontal lines are placed to maximize the number of points in the upper right and lower left quadrants.
