O YOU KNOW just what your cotton and corn
need, and are you furnishing it in such quantities
as required and in such shape that the
plant can use it ?
Suppose you should put the food for your stock in a
box, nail it up and place it in their trough-would you ex
pect them to thrive and grow fat ?
Well, did it ever occur to you that when you use lumpy,
badly mixed fertilizers you are putting this same proposi
tion up to your crops-offering them plant food in such
shape that they can't get to it ?
Fertilizers, to do your crops any good, must dissolve in
the soil waters. These are constantly in motion, rising to
the surface during the day and sinking at night-passing
and repassing the roots of the plant, which absorb the food
contained in the water-and this is the only way in which
the plant can feed.
Therefore, when you buy fertilizer, jrou should do SO
with the idea of furnishing food for your crop and on the
same principle that you should purchase food for your
stock. It should not only contain the necessary Ammonia,
Phosphoric Acid and Potash, but above all else these
should be in soluble form-the mechanical condition
of the fertilizer should be such as to permit the plant to
absorb every particle of it, and the goods should be manu
factured from materials that will not give up their plant
food at one time, but furnish a steady supply throughout
the entire growing season.
This is the fertilizer you should have and can ?et
in only one way. It is impossible to produce a goods like
this by the dry-mixing of raw materials, whether you do
this at home with a shovel and a screen or buy it from
someone who has made it the same -way-the only differ
ence being in the quantity.
These materials must be ground to a powder, and it re
quires machinery costing thousands of dollars to do it
properly. They must then be so manipulated that when
complete, you have a compound, each ounce of which is
exactly like every other ounce, and not a mixture, one
part of which would contain too much Ammonia and too
little Potash, while another part would be exactly the
opposite-and all of it contain plant food locked up and
Remember that the chemical analysis of a fertilizer is no
test of its crop growing qualities. The chemist can pul
verize lumps and by the use of various means search out
the plant food ; your crop can't.
You can take an axe, break open the box and get the
corn ; your mule can't.
Don't risk a crop failure !
