FERTILIZERS AND FIELDCROPS.
David Dickson, after a life of us©
'ill service to his fellow-man and a
fi of success as a farmer, had the
ollowing to say about the use of
a: no: "I say that farmers can make
v< ry acre of their lands rich if they
ill. Providence intended the earth
aould increase in fertility as rapidly
is it does in population. Every man

“1 commenced to use guano in 1846,
and gradually increased the use of it
until the present time, never having
onvtted to use it on my crops ex
cepting the last year of the war, when
I could not obtain it. With the proper
system of rotation of crops, and re
turning all the crops to the land, ex

alone, but not so fast as when you
combine with the soil all the ele
ments of the plants to be grown. Am
monia being necessary for all plants,
1 know of no crop that it would not
benefit. It will pay the best upon
those crops that bring the most mon-,
ey—cotton being that crop in this scc-j
tion, and tobacco in other sections.’"
It will be seen from the above that’
Mr. Dickson profited greatly by the
use of guano. He knew well the value
of ammonia tc growing crops, but you!
will observe that he knew quite ae
well the value of other plant foods to
the crop. He got better yields when;
he applied all the elements of plant,
food than when he applied amnionu.
alone. Also observe that he consul-;
ered it good business to apply fertile
izer. He was a business man as weilj
as a farmer, and knew all the keen
points in the business world.
The Hon. James M. Smith, another
millionaire farmer of Georgia, whoj
died only a few days ago, has the f<
lowing to say with reference to the;
use of fertilizers on farm crops:
"The use of fertilizers has become
one of the most important factors in
Southern agriculture. It is a power
ful agency in producing an increased
yield—a thing we should desire and
work for. We certainly believe in the
use of commercial fertilizers, but we
also believe in the turning under of
vegetable matter, the sowing of
legumes and the saving of all barn
yard manure. The up-to-date farmer
will not oensider one of these, but all
four of them, in trying to increase
his farm crops."
rJacn ot these two farmers, who
have done much to stimulate farm im
provement, learned the value of fertil
izers. but learned equally well the
value of diversified farming. They i
would not decrease the use of fertil
izer, but diversify more. They would
have us use more fertilizers, so that
we could grow more plants and vege
table matter, in turn plow this under,
and in this way increase the fertility
of our lands. The most effective
farming of today involves! these two
great principles. Use fertilizers and
diversify the cropB. Rotate and~t£etj ■
the plants, and you will increase your
vie'ds, be more secure from plant dis
eases, and bring your farm into a high
state of cultivation.
If growing crops take plant food out
of the soil and we do not plow under
an amount equal to this, or get it from
some »ther source and apply It, our
land is sure to decrease in fertility
and in value. This is a fact beyond
dispute. With most of our crops we
take from the fields a large amount
of nitrogen, phosphoric acid and pot
ash. which never goes back to the
place on tlie farm from whence it
came. We should see to it. then, that
some kind of plant food takes its
place. In the case of cotton, we sell
the seed, and with thenf large
amounts of nitrogen and other ele
ments of plant food. Very often we
burn the stalks, and in this way take
from ttu- field much more valuable
plant food. It is suicidal policy for
us to do this under any circum
stances, but especially so when we fail
to put back on the soil what we take
off.
On a sandy farm in one qf the
Southern states, which had been aban
doned by its original owner and sold
for fifty cents per acre, a little barn
yard manure and heavy applications
of fertilizer made another farmer
rich. The last farmer used ¥15 worth
of fertilizer per acre and raised 1,400
pounds of seed cotton per acre. This
was al#>ut a bale per acre on the en
tire farm. The $15 investment in fer
tilizers and good breaking and rultie
vation netted the thrifty farmer more
than ¥50 per acre when cotton was
bringing a high price. f
All the experiment stations and oth
er institutions have found that fertil

good conditions pay a handsome div
