LIME AS A SOIL IMPROVER;
Ty,?wTwwww?? w ? ? a rrrm i w w w *1
Lime is not a fertilizer, but what is
termed an "amendment." because it
brings about eifects in the soil that
make the plant food already present
more available. It sweetens add soils,
bringing about conditions favorable for
the increase of the microorganism that
are helpful. These microorganisms
decompose organic matter and liber
ate the plant food which Is stored
thercnl so that it can be used by the
growing crops. Soil water charged
with carbonic acid, which Is a product
of the breaking down of organic mat
ter, is our strongest natural solvent.
In this way mineral plant food will be
dissolved more readily and made vail
able to the plant. Under certain con
ditions lime liberatos some potash
from its insoluble combinations and
makes it available.
Some very desirable physical effects
are produced by lime. It flocculates
clay Causing it to become more granu
lar and consequently more open. On
the other hand It tends to cement the
sandy soils making them less porous.
There are three forms of lime used
for agricultural purposes: quick lime,
waterslacked lime, and carbonate of
lime. The two forms first mentioned
are quickly changed, in the soil, or
when long exposed to the air, to the
carbonate form. The finely ground
limestone rock is already In the car
bonate form. The quick lime is most
drastic in its effects, the water slack
ed next, and the carbonate is mildest.
Quick lime Is the same whether it is
made by burning oyster shells, lime
stone rock or marl. When buying boar
in mind that you want pounds of ac
tual lime, therefore the analysis Is of
prime importance. We advise a lib
eral application of the lime at long in
tervals, rather than the use of a small
amount often. We would use at least
a ton of tin* finely ground limestone,
or of marl, or 1000 pounds or more per
acre of the quick lime, or of the so
called agricultural limes which are us
ually mixtures of the qUfck, water
slacked, and air slacked lime.
it is preferable to apply the lime as
long before planting as is practicable.
Quick lime is somewhat difficult to
handle on account of its drastic nature
It is best to put this form In small
piles at intervals over tue field and
cover with earth, it will slack and can
then be distributed without much in-1
convenience. Quick lime, if pure, runs 1
higher in content of lime than other
forms of lime, but is more expensive.
When the farmer fully realizes that
lime is an amendment, anil not a fer
tilizer, thai it acts best in connection
with an abundant supply of organic
matter, and. that, if properly used its
beneficial effects are many it will lind
a permanent place in our system of
agriculture. Do not mix lime with fer
tilizers that contain a soluble phos
phate or a salt of ammonia.
Thsl station lias gottotl Rood results
from applications of lime at Clomson
College and also In our experimental
work in the lower part of the State.

Government Report Shows that the
Condition of the Crop is not as Good
as Formerly Reported.
Washington, Stpt. I.?A total pro
duction of 12,918,200 bales of cotton
as the final yield this year is indi
cated by the department of agricul
ture's official report of the condition
of the growing crop on August 25,
which the crop reporting board, from
reports from its correspondents and
agents throughout the cotton belt, es
timated today at Til.2 per cent, of a
This estimate, based on the ratio o?
the average yield for the past ten
years to the average condition of the
crop on August 25 for the past ten
years, would mean a final yield of
181.CS pounds per acre on the planted
area of approximately 34,000,000 acres,
allowing for an aba- doned acerage of
1.000 ,000 and provided the crop does
not decline or improve from the date
the ocndltlon was estimated to the
time of lucking.
These estimates of production, while
unofficial, were reckoned by the of
ficial method adopted by the depart
ment of agriculture and used by the
crop reporting board in its monthly
estimates of the final yield of the Im
portant cereal crops of the country.
Unofficial advices from the cotton
belt indicate the most Important de
clines in the crop were due to severe
droughts, hot winds and worms. Re
ports indicate that heavy shedding
caused by hot weather was the chief
factor of deterioration in practically
all States, ercept Louisiana and Mis
sissippi, where there was too much
rain. In all other States heat ami
drought greatly damaged cotton dur
ing tin* month, especially in Texas and
I mproVCIIICIll Kvpccted.
Since the date on which the condi
tion was taken -August 25?-there have
been general rains which greatly re
lieved conditions and considerable in:
provemenl is looked for when the Oc
toher report is issued.
The condition of the growing cotton
crop on August 25 was 7:'..2 per cent,
of a normal, as compared with 89.1
I per cent, on .Inly 1911; 72.1 per
cent on August 25, 1010: 03.7 per
c?n( on August 27,. 1909, and 73.5 per
cent., tin' average of the past 'en
years on AtlgUSl acording to the
crop reporting board of the bureau of
statistics of the United States depart
ment of agriculture, estlmaed from the
reports of the correspondents and
agents of the bureau.
