Field plots were established in 1978 and 1979 on a Willamette sil in western Oregon to evaluate the effects of chrome tannery wastes on tall fescue (Festuca arundinacea) and soil properties. Three rates of waste material were applied each year; N, Ca, Mg, Cu, Cr, Mn, and Zn in soils and plants were analyzed to relate plant elemental concentrations and yield to elemental application and availability. Soil and fescue Cu. Zn, and Mg concentrations varied only slightly with waste application in either year. Yields increased with waste treatment up to 3 years after application. With the exception of stand establishment problems, no detrimental effects of tannery waste on tall fescue were noted in 3 years of study.
