ASHE S AN HE N MANURE.
These Should Mixed Immediately
Before AppHoation Is Made.
[Prepared by Ohio experiment station.]
No question comes to the Ohio experi
ment station more frequently than how
to use ashes and hen manure to the
best advantage in fertilising the soil.
Unleached hardwood ashes should
contain about 6 or 6 per cent of potash,
with 1 per cent of phosphoric acid. But
potash seldom produces its full effect
unless used in connection with more
phosphorus than is contained.in ashes,
and therefore ashes should be mixed
with some such carrier of phosphorus
as acid phosphate or steamed bonemeal.
Two hundred and fifty pounds of un
leached ashes and 180 pounds of 16 per
cent acid phosphate would carry as
many pounds of phosphoric acid and
potash as would be found in 800 pounds
of 10-4 fertiliser.^
Ashes are about one-third limej and
the addition of lime to acid phosphate
causes the reversion of part of the
phosphorus from the water soluble to
the citrate soluble form, but*this is no
longer considered a serious matter.
There Is usually sufficient lime in the
soil to cause tbisreversion, and if there
is not there should be, because this
quantity of, lime is essential to full
crop production. For example, at the
Ohio experiment station 320 pounds of
acid phosphate has increased the value
of crops by $l&.20on-unllmed land and
by $24.20 on limed land over and above
the cost of the acid phosphate and the
lime, as a ten year average.
A ton of fresh hen manure should
contain about twenty-two pounds of
nitrogen, twenty pounds of phosphoric
acid and ten pounds of potash as a gen
eral average. When air dry, hen ma
nure should contain about 40 pounds of
nitrogen, forty pounds of phosphoric
acid and twenty pounds of potash to
the ton. Fresh manure from fattening
cattle should contain fifteen pounds Of
nitrogen, eight pounds of phosphoric
add and ten pounds of potash per ton,
while as a general average mixed barn
yard manure, after, exposure to the
weather in open yards, is estimated to
contain ten pounds nitrogen, six pounds
phosphoric acid and ten pounds potash
to the ton. A ton of dry hen manure is
therefore worth approximately as much
as four tons of average yard manure..
At the experiment station and as a
sixteen year average, eight tons of
fresh cattle manure have produced in
crease of crop to the value of $26,
the manure being applied to corn in a
three year rotation of corn, wheat and
clover. When the same quantity of
manure has been re-enforced with 320
pounds of acid phosphateforty pounds
per ton of manurethe net value of
increase, after deducting the cost of
the phosphate, has been $39.
Acid phosphate sprinkled over the
dropping boards will reduce the loss
of ammonia and increase the effective
ness of the manure.
A mixture of 250 pounds dry hen
manure, 150 pounds acid phosphate
and 100 pounds unleached hardwood
ashes will contain practically the same
quantities of anSmonia, phosphoric
acid and potash aS would be carried in
300 pounds of a 2-10-2 fertilizer:
By using a sand sieve and a wooden
pestle to pulverize'the manure such a
mixture may be applied with the ordi
nary fertilizer drill, and if the ashes
are not added until within a few days
of the application there will be no ap
preciable loss of ammonia.
Coal ashes have practically no ferti
lizing value, but may sometimes be
used with advantage in loosening a
compact clay soil, or as a mulct*
around small fruits In the garden.
