VALUABLE FARM BY-PRODUCT
Many Farmers Neglect to Care tor
Manure and 8pend Their Money
for Commercial Fertiliser.
(By W. 1L KEL8ET.)
In splto of all that has been writ
ten telling of the value of stable
manure-there are many farmers who
still neglect to care for this valuable
by-product of the farm and spend
their money for commercial fertilizer.
I do not wish to discourage tho ura
I of commercial fertilizer, but it should
never be used until the Btable manure
J Is first taken care of and applied to
I the soil, If there is not sufficient
manure to meet the demands of the
. farm crops the deficiency should be
I supplied by using commercial fertil
i It Is rather difficult to estlmato the
value of stable manure In dollars and
cents as commercial fertilizers are
i valued, since the stable manure adds
I much valuable humus to the soil as
' well as direct plant food and the com
mercial fertilizer Is valued for the
direct plant food alone.
Dr. Alkman says that tho humus of
the stable manure Is worth quite as
much to the soil as the direct plant
food. Valuing the phosphoric acid at
five cents per pound, the potash at
five cents per pound and the nitrogon
at IS cents per pound a fair average
value of the stable manure may be
estimated as follows:
10 pounds nitrogen at 16 cents.. 11.60
10 pounds potash at 5 cents 60
6 pounds phosphoric acid at 6
Then If we add tho value of the
humuB, commission charged by agents
and freight on commercial fertilizers
we may still be conservative when we
double the commercial valuo of the
manure and count a ton of well
cared for stable manure worth $460
to the farm.
Its valuo Is not appreciated because
it Is a by-product and because farm
ers have fallen Into tho habit of neg
lecting to properly care for tho man
ure and apply It Judiciously.
Tho manure when allowod to ac
cumulate about tho stables is in tht
way and is a repulsive, bad-smelling
product, but when drawn to the field
and distributed over tho soil by moans
of spreaders It is out of the way and
