Algae in Tobacco Beds

Abstract

Soil samples were collected at the surface and at a three-inch depth monthly from October through May. Twenty-four genera of algae were collected and cultured from the tobacco beds over the eight-month period. Cell numbers per gram of surface soil varied from 23,000 to 165,000 and, at the 3-inch depth, from 150 to 15,000. Fertilizer applications and chemical treatments of the beds reduced both the cell numbers and the number of genera which could be cultured.
