INTRODUCTION yr
This bulletin presents the results of analyses of 2,448 official samples of commercial
` fertilizer taken during the period July 1, 1975 through June 30, 1976 by the field inspectio
staff. These samples represented approximately 33,000 tons of fertilizer out of the ȴ
approximately 1,000,000 tons sold during this period. The regulatory laboratory made 2,260
nitrogen, 2,270 phosphorus, 2,232 potassium, and about 940 chloride, secondary, and minor A
€l€m€¤t analyses on these samples. The results of N, P2O5, and K20 analyses of samples of p_
mixed fertilizers and fertilizer materials are in Table 1. An indication of the variation
of the N, P205, and K20 found among tne samples from a specific grade of a specific manu-
facturer is in Table 2. Table 3 contains the results of secondary and minor element analyse
and Table 4 is a listing of fertilizer registrants for Kentucky as of June 30, 1976. A

EXPLANATION OF TABLES
.3.
TABLE l.
Every official sample taken during the year is listed in this table. A comparsion of
the "GRADE" with the laboratory analysis for nitrogen (N), available phosphoric acid (APA),~
and potash (POT) will show how closely the manufacturer met his chemical guarantee. An
additional way of comparing guaranteed witn the found analysis is with the relative valuela
shown in the column headed RV. The following example illustrates how this relative value
is calculated. G
A 5-10-15 fertilizer is guaranteed to contain 5% N, 10% P205, and 15% K20. A "Guarante
Value" and a "Found Value" are computed for this fertilizer by assigning arbitrary values
to the individual nutrients as follows: 2 for N, 2 for P2O5, and 1 for KZO. Thus, the
"Guaranteed Value" of the 5-10-15 is calculated as follows:
Element Guaranteed, % Factor Vg11g; .:·
N 5.0 X 2 = 10.0
P205 10.0 x 2 = 20.0 ·z
KZO 15.0 X l = 11111 _
Total "Guaranteed Value" = 45.0
The same procedure is followed for the "Found Value", thus:
A
Element Found, % §gg1gr Va1gg
N 5.1 x 2 = 10.2 ·"
PZOS 10.2 X 2 = 20.4
K20 15.1 X l = 1511
Total "Found Value" = 45.7 `
. . *
The relative value (RV) is then computed by dividing the "Found Value" by the "Guaranteed
Value" and multiplying by 100: ‘
RV = (45.7/45) X 100 = l0l.6%
The RV is rounded to the nearest whole percent before being printed in the bulletin.

 ll ANALYSIS OF OFFICIAL FERTILIZER SAMPLES IN KENTUCKY JULY 1975 - JUNE 1976 7
`* Those results marked with an asterisk (*) are deficient under the criteria stated in
hé Inspection and Analytical Tolerance section. Occasionally an analysis may be found
.hat appears to be inconsistent in its marking. For example, two samples that are guaranteed
·“% P205 (APA) may both be shown as containing 9.3%. One of these may have an asterisk (*)
nd the other not. There are two situations which may cause this apparent difference:
-¤ (1) The tolerances are calculated by computer and applied to the laboratory analyses
·:fore the data are rounded to the nearest tenth of a percent and printed. In the above
·£ample, the laboratory found 9.27% for one sample and 9.33% for the other. Only the first
·ue would be marked (*) as deficient.
(2) The grade as printed is the largest whole number in the guarantee of each ingredient.
ak example, a custom-mixed lot of fertilizer may be guaranteed 11.9% P205 and 11.2% K20. The
ngde would be printed 0-11-11. However, the tolerances are calculated on the 11.9% and 11.2%
uarantees. If this custom mixed fertilizer analyzed 11.0% P205 and 10.9% K20, the 11.0%
{Q5 would be marked (*) because this analysis is below the 11.9% guarantee by more than the
olerance.
The column headed "NUM" lists the laboratory number of the particular sample. In the
olumn headed "XS CL", an asterisk (*) indicates that the chlorine content of the sample
xceeded the maximum chlorine guarantee of the field crop tobacco fertilizer.
n
able 2.
* The data in this table show the average analysis (AA) and coefficient of variation (CV)
•r certain grades and the average percentage of guarantee (% of GUAR.) and appropriate CV
•r all grades sampled for certain companies. An entry was made in this table for a company
ben one grade was sampled 5 or more times or 10 or more total samples were obtained.
The coefficient of variation is proposed as a useful means for describing variation
ong samples. The method for doing this will be found in textbooks on statistics and will
illustrated for 10 analyses of a material guaranteed to contain 5% nitrogen:
The formula for computing the coefficient of variation (CV) is:
` y~ CV = (S/M) X 100
where S = standard deviation
M = average found analysis
. The formula for computing S is:
S = ESX? - (E]X)2/n
' l n - 1
where X = an individual found analytical result
“ n = number of analyses
· E] means "Sum of ....... "
•

 8 REGULATORY BULLETIN 222 A
Now in our example n = l0 and lets assume that the l0 X's are 5.6, 5.5, 5.4, 5.7, 5.5U;
5.8, 5.0, 6.0, 5.5, and 5.3.
Ex? = ss? + 5.52 +   + 5.22 = 30a.49
l (Ex)2 = (55.3)2 = 20sa.09
s =   = 0.275
The average found analysis, M, is computed as follows: a
M = (5.6 + 5.5 + ... + 5.3)/l0 = 5.53 ;F
Using S and M, the CV can now be computed:
CV = (0.275/5.53) X l00 = 5%
If, in this example, there had been less variation or "scatter", the resulting percentage
(CV) would have been smaller. If there had been more variation, it would have been larger.
The CV varies directly with the range in values of analyses and inversely with the averagea'
analysis. I
No matter how much care is exerted in a fertilizer plant, an occasional "wild" batch
may appear and subsequently be sampled. Such batches are caused by unusual circumstances r
such as putting the wrong fertilizer in bags labeled for another grade or large errors
in mixing or manipulation in the factory that cannot be said to represent usual procedure.-
Computations that include such samples would only throw the coefficient of variation as RV
well as the average analysis completely out of line. They are judged to be so abnormal
that they have not been included in these statistical determinations. There were ll sample;
reported in Table l that were excluded from the CV computations reported in Table 2. As
a basis for excluding these samples, the following rules were generally followed.
l. Throw out any samples more than l20% or less than 80% in relative value except: A
6. Those within j 20% of the average sample value, or
b. when the variation of all the sample values is such that the questionable sample
appears to fit a normal distribution pattern.
2. Throw out any sample whose ratio of ingredients differs strongly from the balance of 7:
samples of that grade. These may include samples:
a. Whose ratio strongly suggests an entirely different grade of fertilizer, or I
b. Where two or more of its ingredients are higher or lower by 20% or more of the
extreme values of the remaining normal samples.
TABLE 3 and 4. (Self Explantory) V,
INSPECTION AND ANALYTICAL TOLERANCE F
A tolerance is allowed for variations that may occur in sampling and chemical analyses
It does not, nor is it intended to allow for variation in the manufacturing process. The
manufacturer should compensate for variability in manufacturing techniques and materials
when calculating the formula for a given analysis.
The following formula was used to identify those samples of mixed fertilizers which ‘
were considered to be deficient in N, P205, and K20. W
IF "FOUND" §Q"GUARANTEE" - "TOLERANCE" THEN "FOUND IS DEFICIENT"
where: "TOLERANCE" = "GUARANTEE" X 0.03 + 0.4

 A
A` ANALYSIS OF OFFICIAL FERTILIZER SAMPLES IN KENTUCKY JULY 1975 - JUNE l976 9
* In words this is: If the "FOUND" analysis is less than or equal to the "GUARANTEED"
analysis minus the "TOLERANCE" then the "FOUND" analysis is deemed deficient. The "TOLERANCE"
was equal to 3% of the "GUARANTEE" plus 0.4. For example, the tolerance on a l2% guarantee
is l2 X 0.03 + 0.4 = 0.76. Any found value of ll.24% or less was declared deficient (l2 -
TQ76 = ll.24%). The relative value (RV) was considered deficient when it was more than 2.5%
below l0O%. Specifically, if the RV was less than 97.5% it was considered deficient.
_ Fertilizers sold for use on field crop tobacco must carry a maximum chlorine guarantee
which can be no more than l.5%. Samples were considered excessive in chlorine (XS CL) if
they analyzed more than 0.5 above the maximum guaranteed percentage.
A product was considered deficient in calcium (Ca), magnesium (Mg), sulfur (S), boron (B),
and iron (Fe) if the sample analyzed less than or equal to 0.9 X "GUARANTEE"; and, deficient
in copper (Cu), manganese (Mn), molybdenum (Mo), and zinc (Zn) if the sample analyzed less
than or equal to 0.8 X "GUARANTEE". The product was considered misbranded "M" if the sample
Qpalyzed as much or more than 2 X "GUARANTEE" for all these elements.
In some samples a deficiency in one nutrient was accompanied by an overrun in another.
This may be evidence of improper mixing or weighing by the manufacturer. Extreme variations
.f this kind, however, cannot be wholly attributed to separation of materials (segregation)
after the product is mixed although this may be a factor. Excess of one nutrient will not
at allowed to compensate for a deficiency of another. The purchaser is entitled to receive
the full guarantee for all nutrients as expressed by the manufacturer's guaranteed analysis.
