Farmers in the mid-Atlantic region, USA have many forms of fertilizer that can be used for grain, oilseed, forage, fiber, and vegetable production systems due to the proximity of animal production coupled with traditional inorganic fertilizer sources. The goal of this publication is to define and clarify the main fertilizer sources available to producers for crop production, as terms can be ambiguous and vary from person to person.
