Uses and Abuses of Fertilizers
I y Prof. R. J. . De Loach, Director of Georgia Experiment Station. I
- FERTILIZERS AND HORTICULTURE.
The Fifth of a Series of Six Articles.
Tae fruit- and vegetable growers are always leaders in the use of plant
leads for their crops. This is especially true of the vegetable growers. What
they wish is rapid growth In their produce, so that they will get the vege
tables en the market in the shortest possible time from the time. of planting.
This is the secret of success with vegetables, and the only way to meet such
conditiens is to apply fertilizers in large quantities. In the next paper we
*all telT about the 'home garden" and how to fertilize it. In the present
Faer-*. are to t ll more particularly about fruit trees and other horticultural
The reaation at apple growing to fertilisers has never been very carefully
worked out We knew that the ube of fertilizers with fruit trees, and
tbpecially-appls, pays, but we have not yet worked out the best formulas
far the various kinds of trees, nor the. amounts which pay best. Brisbin says,
aO i& book an '"Trees and Tree Planting," that in planting young trees large
Cinuties-of manure should be used in preparing the place for planting.
These manures should be rich In ptant food elements If the trees are ex
peted ta make rapid gowth, The best way to increase the plant food in
asnures is to add to the manures the mineral elements in various forms,
and mix with leag mold and manures. Brisbin also recommends that weeds
ahuM adt be allowed to grow around the apple trees, as they will take up
theplant food which is put down for young trees.
'The best method of perdecing fruit is to keep the Seld or orchard clean by
Sowi-- oter a which require constant attantlon and cultivati on. Most
haesand hoitlcvltuirists fertas the craps that grow in the orchard, and
ga this way save the empense otierlimsing the fruit trees again. In many
instnes legumses are grown as- a ever crop, and. incidentally, to furnish
attrogen. The orchar4 eannot be cultivated too deeply, or injury will result.
It needs to be cultivated shallow, and rhanures or fertilizers applied in
geesonable quantites. While It Is necessary to put fertiiers near the trunk
ett the tree, Yet the roots scatter pretty well over an orchard, and the plant
tood that happens to fanl further away f'om the trunk Is not lost.
'A large-erop of apples or peaches -takes from the soil much plant food,2
such as-nitrogen, potash and phosphoric acid, and unless this i supplied from
time to tine, -the trees will prove less fruitful and inaiy bear very little
trait, and what they do bear will be of poor quality. The argument that old
tree. in pastures bear good fruit Is not souad, becae conditions prevail in
anany Isolated places this way that cannot be duplicated In the orchard.
May times It is the natural leaf mold, woods earth, droppings from animals
and other materials carrying available plant food that make the fruit on
auch trees.. Besides, such fruit, is rarely ever as exenent and delicious as
that grown in a well-kept orchard. .Fruit, like all other. kinds of field and
garden erops, must be forced mor, or less to measure up to a high standard.
'To tore. the fruit, and- at the same time keep the land fertile, we must apply
to. the-sonl as .much fertilizer as the crop takes from ft.
Fruit trees. demand in their growth a. fertiier rather rich in potash and
,hosphoric acid, but not very rich In nitrogen. It was found that the citrus
trees In California at the Riverside Esperiment Station grew better fruit and
did better .very way with a oomplete fertilizer than with any single plant'
good element, or any incomplete combination. It was also found that the
asid.requiremnts of these trees were more completely 'supplied with sul
pbate of ammonia than from -any other nitrogen sourue.
Many of the esxpeimnent stations have secured good results from fertilizing
orchards. but non quite-so good as the Ohio station. F. H. Baflon, In charge
of work with apples,. says: .t
"To som up the results in increased fruit production from the use of
gemeia3. fertilizers on the very thin orchard land in southeastern Ohio, tak
Ing into consideration all our different plots at the various places covering
- 4 miles of country, we have the following:
Average per acre, per year fertilized, 100 barrels.
Averge per acre, per year unfertiied, 44 barrels.
Glain par acre, per year, from fetilization, 56 barrels.
Cost of gain per barrel, per year, 17.8 cents.
.This is the strongest endorsement for the use of commercial fertilizers- in
orchards that we have yet seen, and shows how It Is possible to increase the
incomes from an orchard by the wise use of the proper kinds of fertilizers.
*Prof. Maurice A. Blake of the New yersey Experiment Station recommends
en appllcation of 450 pounds of fertilizer per acre with peaches. Prof. Starnes
-of the Georgia Experiment Station tried many formulas at the Georgia Station
several years ago on peaches, and found that in every case the fertilizers

RIGHT PACKAGE FOR BUTTER
Dound Prints Most Suitable for Home
Dairy-Old Way of Mold Is
The style of package in which but
:er is offered for sale depends largely
mn the market, the amount of butter
nan'ifactured and the frequency with
which it is sold. The old way of mold
:ng farm butter in cakes, balls and
rolls is unsanitary and out of date,
mnd a neater form of package is now
ised in Its stead. The style of pack
age has much to do with the sale and
)rice of butter and on this account it
s given much attention.
When butter is made on a small
cale on the farm, earthen crocks are
>ften used and give good satisfaction.
['hey are often objected to on ac
:ount of the weight and the ease with
which they are broken during trans
ortation. When viewed from the
standpoint of the keeping quality of
>utter there is possibly no container
hat equals the earthen ciock. In
new of this fact it is the best to use
when the butter is made for home use.
Wooden tubs and boxes are used
or packing butter. The tubs are of
lifferent sizes, 10-pound, 20-pound, 30
?ound and 60-pound; the boxes are
isually all of the latter size. These,
iowever, are only suitable for the
arger dairies. When used they should
)e lined with parchment paper after
>oth have been thoroughly soaked and
steamed. Parchment paper cut to fit
he package is commonly furnished
with the tub or box.
For the home dairy one-pound prints
r bricks of butter are coming more
tad more into favor. Each print or
rick of butter should be neatly
rapped in parchment paper. The
sarchment paper may be plain, but
nore often, the butter maker has
some distinctive design on it. This
atter is the best form in which to
but up butter if supplying to a special
rade. It is only advisable, however,
; put up butter of the best quality
n pound prints.
AGON WITH SLED RUNNERS
'our Wheels and Runners May Be
Raised or Lowered Together, or in
Pairs, as Desired.
A vehicle which may be used as an

Michigan. The wagon has wheels and t
unners attached to its front and rear
