      Studies were carried out at the Safford Agricultural Center using some soil amendments as anti-crusting agents. The results are promising in terms of improved stands on soils subject to crusting. Additional research is needed in order to determine proper rates which will reduce crusting without being toxic to the emerging seedlings.
