Soluble salt injury to gardenia: Often traced to excessive use of chemical fertilizers or to salts in the water supply
by Stephen Wilhelm, H. T. Pyfrom
| Full text HTML  | PDF  
Not available – first paragraph follows: Gardenia flower production in greenhouses in the San Francisco Bay area has been seriously affected by a diseased condition brought on by the accumulation of excessive amounts of soluble salts in the soil in the growing benches.

by O. A. Lorenx
| Full text HTML  | PDF  
Not available – first paragraph follows: Four different fertilizer treatments and time of sampling—as they affect the chemical composition and nutrient uptake by potatoes grown in Kern County—were studied from plantings, on a Hesperia fine, sandy loam soil.
