Wheat requires ?
a fertilizer that contains ammonia in different forms, some slow, some active, to provide gradual and continual food to the plant from start to maturity. There is one fertilizer that does this?one that is Nature's own provision for wheat crop?one which contains ingredients that the chemists have never been able to put into fertilizer. It is genuine old Peruvian Guano Old farmers of Virginia and the Carolina's recall the splendid crops grown with Peruvian Guano years ago. No fertilizer di .covered has ever equaled it tor producing enormous yields. Your land probably needs just such a soil improver. Order one or two tons and compare the results with those from any commercial fertilizer. Write for prices, and full information. Agencies still open in some localities.
