 CO M RCIAL FERTILIZER IN KENTUCKY JULY, 1972 - JUNE, 1973 7
This bulletin contains the results of analyses of 1,949 official samples
of com ercial fertilizer made during the period July 1, 1972 through June 30,
1973.
Separate tables are provided for the results of the analyses for nitrogen,
available phosphoric acid and soluble potash, organics and boron.
EXPLANATION OF TABLES
The information given in the following tables should be useful in determining
how nearly a manufacturer is meeting the chemical guarantee printed on the bag
or tag for the fertilizer represented by the samples listed. This may be done
by comparing the "grade" with the actual analysis listed under "N" "APA" "POT".
An additional means of comparing guarantees with the analyses of samples
is in the percent of relative value found, shown in the column RV. The following
examples illustrate how this relative value is calculated:
A 5-10-15 fertilizer is guaranteed to contain 5 units of nitrogen, 10 units
of available phosphoric acid (PZO5) and 15 units of potash (K20). Factors for
computing the relative value of these plant foods are: 3 for nitrogen, 2 for
available phosphoric acid and l for potash. Thus the combined guaranteed value
of the product represented is calculated:
5.0 Units of Nitrogen x 3 = 15.0
10.0 Units of Available Phosphoric Acid x 2 = 20.0
15.0 Units of Potash x 1 = 15.0
Total computed guaranteed value 50.0
The same procedure is followed for "found values". Assuming a sample of 5-
10-15 was found to contain 5.1 units of nitrogen, 10.2 units of available phosphoric ·
acid and 15.1 units of potash, the relative found value is computed:
5.1 Units of Nitrogen x 3 = 15.3
10.2 Units of Available Phosphoric Acid x 2 = 20.£•
I 15.1 Units of Potash x 1 = 15.1
50.8
50.8 (computed found value of sample) divided by 50.0 (computed guaranteed
value) times 100 (to arrive at percentage) gives 101.6 as the percent of relative
value found.
The analyses indicated by an asterisk are deficient more than the tolerance.
Occasionally an analysis may be found that appears to be inconsistent in its
marking. For example, two samples that are quaranteed 10% available phosphoric
acid may both be found to contain 9.7%. One of these may have an asterisk and
` the other not. There are two factors that may cause this difference.
1. These tolerances are calculated by an electronic computer and applied to the
laboratory analyses before these data are rounded off to the nearest tenth of a
percent. In the above example, the laboratory found 9.66% for one sample and
9.74% for the other. The first one would be starred as deficient.
Note: Effective July 1, 1973 the relative value for nitrogen was changed to 2.

 8 REGULATORY BULLETIN 214
2. The grade is written by using the largest whole number in the guarantee
of each ingredient. For example, a custom-mixed lot of fertilizer may be
guaranteed 0—ll.9-ll.2. The grade would be written 0-ll-ll. However, the
tolerances are calculated on the 11.9% and 11.2% guarantee. lf this fertil-
izer analyzed 11.3% A.P.A. and 10.9% potash, the 11.3% A.P.A. would be starred ‘
because this analysis is 0.6% units below the 11.9% guarantee. V
In some samples a deficiency in one nutrient is accompanied by an overrun
in another nutrient. This may be evidence of improper mixing or weighing by
the manufacturer. Extreme variations of this kind cannot be attributed to
separation of materials (segregation) after the product is bagged though
this may be a minor factor. Excess of one nutrient cannot compensate for
deficiency of another nutrient. The purchaser is entitled to receive the full
guarantee for all nutrients as expressed by the manufacturer's guaranteed
analysis.
EXPLANATION OF CERTAIN COLUMNS
The letters NIT after a grade means that the product is, or that it contains,
Nitrate of Potash. The colu n headed "NUM" lists the laboratory number of the
particular sample. In the column headed "XS CL", an asterisk indicates the
sample did not meet the guarantee for sulfate of potash. The RV column shows the A
percent of relative value found.
INSPECTION AND ANALYTICAL ALLOWANCE
The following table shows the amount of variation below the guarantee that
is allowed before a product is considered to be deficient in a plant food element.
This variation is allowed to compensate for any variations that may occur
in sampling and analysis. lt does not, nor is it intended to compensate for
variation in the manufacturing process. The manufacturer should compensate for
variability in manufacturing techniques and fertilizer materials in calculating
his formulation for a given guarantee:
Percent Guarantee in Nitrogen, Tolerance in
Phosphoric Acid or Potash Percentage Units =
0- 9 0.2
l0-19 0.3
20-25 0.h
26-3L 0.5
35-39 0.6
A0-A9 0.7
50-59 0.8
60 or more 0.9
Note: Effective July 1, 1973 the inspection and analylical allowance was changed.

COMTUTING COEFFICIENT 0F VARIATION
The listing on pages 54 thru 61 shows the average analysis and coefficient of
variation for each grade where two or more samples of a grade are reported. These
data also show the average percentage of guarantee and the coefficient of variations
for all grades reported for a company, or plant, when more than one plant is listed
and ten or more samples are reported.
The coefficient of variation is proposed as a means for reducing this to a
statistic that is useful. The method for doing this will be found in textbooks on
statistics and when applied to a guarantee of 5% nitrogen is calculated as follows:
Sample Nwmber Nitrogen Guarantee Found Sguared
A 5.0 5.6 31.36
B 5.0 5.5 30.25
C 5.0 5.4 29.16
D 5.0 5.7 32.&9
E 5.0 5.5 30.25
F 5.0 5.8 33.64
G 5.0 5.0 25.00
H 5.0 6.0 36.00
I 5.0 5.5 30.25
J 5.0 5.3 28.09
55.3 306.&9

l0 9
l0 — l
Coefficient of variation = 0.275 x l00 = 4.97 - 5.0%
5.53
lf in this example there had been less variation or "scatter", the resulting
percentage would have been smaller. lf there had been more variation, it would have
been larger. The coefficient varies directly with the range in values of analyses.

"WILD" SAM LES
No matter how much care is exerted in a fertilizer plant, an occasional
"wild" sample may appear. Such samples are caused by unusual circumstances
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 well as the average analysis completely out of line. They are
judged to be so abnormal they have not been included in these statistical deter- V
minations. There were Z8 such samples in the mixed fertilizer samples reported.
As a basis for excluding these samples, the following rules were followed:
l. Throw out any samples more than l20% or less than 80% in relative
value except: .
a. The sample is within j 20% of the average sample value.
b. The variation of all the sample values is such that the samples
more than i 20% appear to fit a normal distribution pattern.
2. Throw out individual samples whose ratio of ingredients differs strong-
ly from the balance of samples of the grade. These may include samples:
a. Whose ratio strongly suggests an entirely different grade of fer- .
tilizer.
b. Two or more of whose ingredients are high or lower by 20% or
more of the extreme values of the remaining normal samples.
