Crop Nutrient Requirement:
Crops vary in their ability to use nutrients.
- coastal bermudagrass has very high nutrient requirements
- a mature forest has much lower requirements
Since the amount of nitrogen required by a crop usually varies directly with the yield, there must be some way of estimating the yields expected on different fields.
Realistic yield expectations (R.Y.E.) is the estimated crop yield for a given site.
