How to Mix Ferties
Clemson College, 8pecial.-Mr. T:
. Reitt, chemist of the South Caro
fta Experiment Statioi, has prepat
-ed an article on "Home Mixing of
Commmercial Fertilizers," a stpm
mary of which is given herewith. As
the time approaches for the farmer to
procure his fetilizers for the next
-Orop, the question confronts.. hiYn:
1ow can I get the maximum of the
most, available plant food At the min
-imum price t Although growing
plants derive their food from soil,
water and air, it is the fertility of
-the soil that c.oncerns us in the appli
.cation of commercial fertilizers. The
-chief elements which plants derive
from the soil are potassium, phospho
rus, nitrogen, calcium and sulphur.
'The constant natural activities going
-on in the soil furnish generally
enough of. all except nitrogen, phos
phoric acid, and potash, which, there
fore, the farmer must buy in the form
-qf commercial' fertilizers.
In what form shall thehe be
6ought * 4s unmixed materials or as
.#ined fertilizers? The nianufae
t9r- of available phosphoric acid
f&om raw rock or bone requires skill
apd experience, and to the novice is
somewhat dangdroqs; therefore, it is
not generally desirable for the farmer
to attempt to make "'superphos
phates.'' But mixing the manuac
tured goods is rather simple, requir
ing (1) judgment in selecting ma
terial, (2) knowledge of the calcula
lions involved, (3) a tight floor to
-mix on, and (4) a plenty of energy.
1. The material will depend on the
character of the soil,. the crop to be
grown and the price' of material.
hos%horic acid hastens maturity and
aids in developing the seed;' potash
lengthens the growing season and
stiffens the stalk; -nitrogen gives
rapid and luxuriant growth. Nitro.
gen, the most expensive,- can be sue
plied by legumes-peam, ete, but the
-one-crop system now followed neces
sitates the buying of nitrogen ip the
form of nitrate of soda, sulphate of
ammonia. dried blood and cotton seed
meal. The present prohibitive pr'ce
-of dried blood leaves ps the otner
three forms in which tQ obtain nitro
Sen, until we adopt systems of rota
tion to supply it.
The commercial sources of potash
are kaimt, muriate and sulphate of
-potash, containing 12.50 and 48 per
cent of potash, resp ctively. For
cotton or corn, muriate or kainit is
better because cheaper; but murlate
S -cannot be used for tobacco, as it in
jures the burning qu.Jities of the
leaf. For pota'oes, turnips %nd
other root crops some claim that the
sulphate is better.
Phosphorie acid can be obtained
from the 14 per cent or -the 16 p.-r
*-cent article. When prices re pro
portinate the higher grade bought
-saves in the hauhr.g. Do not be
afraid to use a few postage stamps
writing to a number of firms for
prices, and, if possible, order in car
-load lots, alone, or by clubbing with
'neighbors.
'2. As to calculations, a unit is 1
-ver cent of a ton, or 20 pounds. If
we desire an 8-3-3 guano, we must
have in a ton 8 u. its of phosphoric
- acid, 3 of ammnoma, or its equivalent.
-and 3 of potash, or 160 pounds of
the first. CO of the see-nd and 60
-of the thin1. Suppose we desire to
-get the ammonia half from meal and
hal Cf- fr nitraje and the acid from
-ameunts would give the 8-3-3 ratio;
- 4.29 pomnd.. meal. 167 nond3 nitrate..
11 polundsl mintte, 06) pounds acid.
'333 noitnds tiller. The number of
'hunidred flouma(1 of material is not
ten by dividing the amount of plant
food d1esired by the per cent contain

nitrate of soda, 100 of muriate fi
potash, -1,000 of 16 per cent aoI4
and 300 of filler,would give a mixt-tre
grading 8.3-3.227, instead of 8-34
which iq closer than many factory.
mixed fertiliz'rs come to the guar
antee. *
To get high-grade mixed fertili
zers we ;nust of course, use high.
grade materials. In the above mix.
tur',^if no filler is nsed, we would
have 1,700 pounds grading about
9.7-3.7-3.2. It is obvious that we
cannot get an 8-4-4 goods by getting
all of the ammonia from meal and
.ll of the potash from kainit. Very
likely the above mixture would run
slightly over guarantee, because the
seller should allow a margin on each
of his raw materials, whereas, in a
mixed fertilizor, one, or even two,
-of the elements may fall below guar
antee, and the other elements might
pull it over in relative commercial
value.
3. Any tight floor may be used foi
mixing, but better under a shed so
that. rainy days may be used for ny4x
ing.1' A practical farmer tells me that
three hands with hoes apd shovel can
do the mixing at- ab-iut one dollat
per ton. It is convenient to Mi
about 800 pounds at a time, putting
the mixed, fertilizer bAck into the
sacks from which the raw mateial
came. In this way a saving of $3
to $4 per ton can be made over the
prices of factory-mixed goods.
Simming up, by mixing his own
fertilizers the farmer knows juit
what are the sources of the elemento
of his fertilizet: he. avoids undesir
able sources and materials; he may
study his soil, crous and conditicii
aid supply in ar.; proportions thosc
ingrediei.ts most needed; he'tfay sav
