Shoe Bluffton, Ohio FERTILIZE CROPS When buying fertilizer for your fall seedings, remember that you are fertilizing two crops. After the grains are harvested next year, there must still be plenty of potash available in the soil to insure a healthy growth of clover or alfalfa. Your fertilizer application should be ample for both crops. A 2-ton yield of clover hay requires 2 1/3 times as much potash as is needed to produce 30 bushels of wheat. Use 200-400 lbs. of 3-12-12, 3-9-18, 0-12-12, 0-20-20, or 0-10-20 per acre for fall seedings. Con sult your official agricultural advisers to determine the best grade suited for your needs.
