||Twenty-one fertilisers were tested for their ability to support smouldering combustion and the results were tabulated. Most nitrate-containing fertilisers supported slow burning. Those containing manganese and cobalt were more likely to burn than fertilisers of otherwise identical composition that lacked those elements. Iodine, boron, zinc and molybdenum had no effect. The nitrate-free fertilisers tested absorb heat on decomposition and so do not support slow burning.
