Abstract

The trials carried out at Experimental Centre for Pastures Preajba – Gorj within 2006-2008 period on a slope luvosoil that is affected by surface erosion have shown the importance of complex fertilization on corn grain yield.
By calculating the correlation between NPK type fertilizers rates and the corn grain yield by polynomial function there resulted a positive coefficient of correlation with the maximum value of 1. This way, there could be observed the fact that between two parameters (fertilizer rate and yield) there is an absolute positive correlation which means that when the fertilizer rate increases, so does the yield.
