, TOSEEUST T
SIDE DRESSING IS PROFITABLE
Your crop will be largely made or marred in the months of
May and June. If you get it started off growing nicely in these
months, given good preparation, you stand a very much better
chance of making a good crop and vour crop will stand adverse
conditions better in July and August.
If a pig gets stuntedl in its early youth, it is almost impossible
to make a1 good, rousing hog of it later. If your cotton is stunted,
or if it, gets sore shin or any of the other ailments to which cotton
is liable, it has to recover from 4his before it can take on its natural
growth, and it never does as well as it would if it had not suffered
these troubles. Side dressing. by supplying plant food, makes
this plant.vigorous and healthy and strong and it grows off from
the start. If you break your arm and set it, and get it properly
set and properly knitted together, it is never as strong as before
it was broken. "A bird with a broken wing never soars so high
And so it is with your cotton. Early attention and early fer
tilization is more than half of the battle. There is no question of
side dressing Daying. You notice what top dressing did for grain
this spring; as soon as the top dressing Nas administered, the
grain came out of the kinks, and if you administer side dressing
to your cotton, it will come out of the kinks. The preparation for
a crop has been unusually fine this spring, and where the prepa
ration is fine the farming is good and side dressing is bound to
Some farmers have found side dressing unprofitable; that is
because it was applied too late: it should be applied early, as soon
as you bring your cotton to a sland, because you do not care to
side dress cotton that you are going to cut out; and as soon as
you get the gra3s out, of your cotton, because you do not care to
side dress grass; grass takes care of itself in a crop if let alone.
As soon as this is done, then Ihe side dressing should be applied
and you are not going to apply too much of it. Up to a few
years ago France used more fertilizer than the whole United
States of America and they did hot use it all at once, either. The
French farmers make very fine crops.
In a few years people will wonder why we upe so little fertilizer now ir
making crops. Joel Keys told the writer of a Mr. Rogers down in Florence
county who side dressed his cotton every time he cultivated it, and when he
wound up cultivating his crop he had used about 1,800 pounds of fertilizer to the
acre; and when he wound up gathering his crop he had gathered 880 pounds of
lint cotton to the acre; not seed cotton-lint cotton-two bales weighing 44(
pounds each to the acre. Now, if this is not profitable, the most of us had bettei
Side dressing your cotton prevents disease to which cotton is liable because
it is stronger and better able to withstand these troubles. It is stronger because
it is better fed. A well fed pig or a well fed child can resist disease better thar
a little stunted child or pig.
Then, when a man's cotton crop grows off well, when it is green and greasy
and growing, it makes him feel better; it encourages him to work it better anc
he will have a better crop. Then, too, a man feels his oats a little more with a
good crop than he does otherwise; it gives him better credit and it gives hir
better standing in his community having a good crop of green, greasy anc
growing cotton than having a little yellow, rusty, stunted, bumble bee cotton.
The time is past when a man can maintain his respectability and grow bumble
bee cotton. Some people complain that they cannot get their hands to side dress
their cotton, but this Mr. Rogers had no trouble of that sort. He is like the
centurion spoken of in the- Good Book: when he tells man to do a thing he does it.
If you apply all your fertilizer when you plant your cottoh, the spring rains
get a part of it; the grass gets a part; the cotton that you cut out in reducing
your crop has taken a part, so your remaining crop gets probably not more thar
half of what you put down.
Now, suppose you use 400 pounds to the acre of 10-2-2 goods. You will save
128 ounces of ammonia; half of this has been taken up by the rains, the grass
and cotton you have taken out, so you would have about 64 ounces of ammonia
and you have 14,700 cotton stalks to fertilize with this 64 ounces of ammona.
The wonder is that such a little fertilizer will make such a difference in the crop.
You can see this difference by comparing a field fertilized with a field of cottor
that is not fertilized. You will come to the conclusion that fertilizer men are
giving you good goods or so little would not make such a difference.
As your cotton grows, your fertilizer is absorbed and used up, and along ir
July and August four cotton is putting on its fruit, and when this is going or
the strain on the cotton plant is greatest. Now, just at the time when the
strain is greatest, the supply of plant food, which is already reduced, is weak
ening, so just as the strain is increasing by the-additional fruit that the stalk
takes on, 'ust at the time when your plant is hungering and thirsting for plani
food, for stenance, or, you might say, for vittles, as the heart panteth a~tex
the water brook, the supply is reduced and is decreasing and your crops shed.
What else can it do? When your farm work is heaviest on the mules you mncrease
the food and then they do not hold their own; suppose you did not increase their
food when you increased their work; wouldn't you expect them to shed, too.!
In every contest for corn or cotton that has been entered into for years
past, the one who go't the prize side dressed his crop and more than once. There
is no accident about this-it is a consequence. A man does not stand a ghost of a
chance of getting the prize in a crop contest who does not side dress.
In 1911 this county made the biggest cotton crop it has ever grow~n and there
was more side dressing used than ever. This was not accident, either-it was
another consequence. You do not expect to give your mule enough corn and oats
Monday morning to last it until Saturday night, and you have no notion of giving
it enough corn and water in Aprik to last it until October, but that is what you
you do when you fertilize your cotton in April and expect it to feed a crop until
it matures in October.
In a man's farming his cotton crop is his money crop-his way of making a
profit, and he only makes one cotton crop a year. That being the case,.it will
pay him to nurse his crop, to feed it, to look after it. It has been estimated
that for every dollar a man spends in fertilizer he gets back $3.60, leaving him
a clean, clear profit of $2.60 on every dollar he spends for fertilizer. The profit
is greater than on side dressing, because in side dressing the crop gets every
ounce of fertilizer, where it gets not over half of that which is applied when the
crop is planted.
Few people realize the value of side dressing and the profit in it. If they
did, we feel sure they would find farming very much more profitable. To change
the reading of the text of the Good Book a little, we will say when you know
the truth, the truth shall make you free.
Now, we are making a fertilizer especially adapted to side dressing. It
takes a different fertilizer for side dressing than it does for that which is applied
at the time the crop is planted; it requiress quicker action, for whatever is done
to improve the crop in May or June must be done quickly. The business of this
crop requireth haste, so we have compounded a fertilizer especially adapted to
side dressing. We manufacture an 8-4-4 which is excllent; we also have 4-7-2,
which is better, because it acts a little quicker; then we have 4-10-2, which is
better still; then we have a 9-6, which is a prescription. It is a combination
medicine and tonic, makes a crop grow and wards off diseases to which cotton is
liable. It will cost you something, but it will bring you more than it costs. You
get back more than three times what you pay out in any of these fertilizers that
you get for side dressing.
We have had a number ofd armers tell us that 1,300 pounds of seed cotton
that has been side dressed will turn out as heavy a bale of cotton as 1,500 pounds
of seed cotton that has not been side dressed, and, besides, it makes a better
sample. and a better sample brings a better price.
Now, lest we forget. the fertilizer made by the Anderson Phosphate and Oil
Company boys is the best put in sacks. or barrels, or tubs, or pots. It is the
best fertilizer for side dressing or for any other purpose that you have ever ad
ministered to your crop. We have it ready made and ready to be shipped. It
is bagged and tagged.
