MUST BE REPRESENTATIVE Instructions Should Be Obtained From Experlment Station So tore Samples Are Sent In. There is a widspread bellef among farmers that the chemical analysis of a soil will show exactly the kind and amount of fertiliser it requires In order to produce maximum crops. Bxper-l once has shown, however, that this is by no mesas true and that, in fact, the analysis of a single, isolated soil sam pie is of very little value indeed, as cording to S. U. Walker, soil chemist, Experiment Station, Louisiana State University. Moreover, If the samples are not so taken as to represent the average soil of the field, the analysis is likely to be misleading and there fore worse than useless, he says. Mr. Walker suggests that a much more effective way to solve soil chem clal problems is to make systematie study of the various soil types, suple menting the chemical analyse with actual field tests to determine which fertilisers give the best results on each type of soil. The Experiment Station Is now conducting a careful survey of the soils of Louisiana in order to learn the distribution and composition of the different soil types. The work will be followed up with field tests. It may be that the general type to which a soil belongs has already been analysed. On the other hand, an anal yals of a certain soil may make a val uable addition to the data already oh Itated. At any rate, samples should not be sent for analysis without first writing to the Station, giving a de scription of the location and charac ter of the land and asking for Instruc tions. Such letters should be addressed to Soil Laboratory, Experiment Sta. tion, Louisiana State University, Batol Rouge. NOTICE.
