Shortage of labor, seed and credit make it impractical to in- j crease the acreage. In order to secure a MAXIMUM yield of corn on any character of soil it is neces. sary to supply an abundance of Nitrogen to develop a vigorous, healthy stalk and ample Phosphoric Acid to produce the grain. A liberal application of COTTON BELT High Grade CORN GROWER, on land well prepared and cultivated, it is safe to figure will increase the yield 50 to 100 per cent. No investment, at this time can promise a better return or greater profit than the purchase of fertilizers—plant food— if you please, to in- \ sure a maximum yield of corn. No risk of boll weevil damage there. On good soils that will produce thirty bushels or more per acre without fertilizer, 50Q to 800 pounds per acre should be used. On ordinary soils about 500 pounds fertil izer should be used, and supplemented by 100 pounds Nitrate of Soda as a side dressing when corn is waist to shoulder high. When and How to Apply i If applied before planting, fertilizer should be put in drill 2 to 3 inches lower than seed are to be planted and followed bv a small nlow to thnrnnohlv _ - - D -TTIMI own. so all feed roots, as they expand, will find a supply of plant food. If corn has been planted, equally as good results will be had by applying fertilizer between rows 8 to 12 inches from corn first or second time cultivated. Many prefer this method, so com will have the benefit of fertilizer at time it needs it most—when it is producing the grain.
