TUA DINO OF SEED FOE MEAL.
Some Figures that Show thc Relative
Values UH Plant Foods.
( Progressive Farmer.)
A reader says she can exchange
a lon of oottcn seed for 1,500 pounds
of cotton seed meal, hut to do so she
must haul the seed livo miles and
haul the meal hack to thc farm. She
wishes lo know whether she should
usc the seed on the land for fertil
izer or make this exchange.
If we assume that 1,000 pounds
of cotton seeil meal is worth about
the same in value of plant foods as
one ton of cotton seed, then we have
."ino pounds of cotton seed meal, on
tho basis of this proposed trade, to
pay for hauling a ton of seed five
miles anti 1,.">00 pounds of meal back
to the farm. At $32 a ton for cot
ton seed meal, 500 pounds of meal
ls worth $8; therefore, it looks us If
il will pay to haul these seed and
trade them for cotton seed meal on
the basis proposed.
Below aro given the plant foods
In an average ton of cotton seed and
also the amounts of the different
grades of cotton seed moal required
to furnish approximately the same
amounts of plant foods:
Ono Ton Cotton Seed.
Nitrogen .64 lbs.
Phosphoric acid.20 lbs.
Potash.2 1 lbs.
1,000 Pounds Cotton Seed .Meal
(7 Per Cent.)
Nitrogen .63 lbs.
Phosphoric acid .27 lbs.
1,050 Pounds Cotton Seed .Meal
(7?? Per Cent.)
Phosphoric acid .26 lbs.
1,000 Pounds Cotton Seed Meal
(8 Per Cent.)
Phosphoric acid.L'.? lbs.
From the above it is plain that,
since cotton seed meal is more satis
factory for use as fertilizer, when
ever one can trade a ton of cotton
seed for enough more than 1,100
pounds of 7 per cent cotton seed
meal, l,0f>0 pounds of 7 % per cent
cotton seed mool, or 1,000 pounds of
s per eon) cotton seed nie I t<> obj
fo.r the hauling or for making the
exc'ua???:e 't will hf . dvatitn:;eocs <?>
make ? Uti trade,
There ls another reason why the
trade should be made when lt ls
economical to the farmer to do so.
The oil In the colton seed is of no
value for fertilizer, but ls worth
something for food and to the oil
mills. The mills will almost always
Rive more than enough meal for seed
to pay the farmer to make the trade.
