Plain Talks on Fertilizers
Bow to Get the Greatest Possible Yield per Acre It ta a ?rell-knoarn s^iaTitiftc fact that in order to produce the ?try greatest poesiblc yield from any soil it taust contain an actttal extfss over and above all demand? that can possibly be made on it by the planta. Many farmers will feed their stock as much nourishing food a? they can possibly assimi? l?t??*, yet ?till starve their crops on the mistaken notion that they are "economizing" on fer? tilizer. The experiences of farmers, government experts, and agricultur? alists every? where confirm the fact that plants, like ani? mals, need tbe fullest possible amount of nour? ishment that they can obtain if they are to bo developed to the utmost. The economy in fertilizers is not in the amount used but in the ratio of quality to cost. Virginia-?Carolina Fertilizers are the best in the world for the least money. More than one million tons were l"?& ?old tc Southern farm? ers last year ; and every year the demand be? comes greater. The best results in producing com, the good oid stand-by crop of the South, follow the application of 200 to 300 pounds of the right fertilizer. Virginia-Carolina Fertilizers will greatly "in? crease your yields per acre" of corn or any other crop, even <;n poor land?and the most ".vonderful result- are produced t hrough its use on good land.
