Here you will find the protocol for fertilizing the GK-12 BEST fertilization treatment plots. We want to test hypotheses about how fertilization influences plant productivity and diversity and how fertilization treatment effects might relate to soil properties and to invertebrate abundance and diversity on the plots.  Each block has 8 plots, 4 of which will receive fertilization.  Fertilization begins in year two after establishment (Spring 2012).
