Fertilization of Wheat
The following statement concerning
the fertilization of wheat this fall was
issued by the department of agricultural
extension at Purdue University, July
31, 1917:
The fertilization of the wheat crop
was never more important than it will
he this fall. From every part of Indiana
coxpe reports of -excellent results secur
ed from fertilization and the very poor
yields of wheat secured from unfertiliz
ed soil. By 'fertilizing, the farmer
swaps dollars for eagles.
Evidence on the profitableness of
fertilizing the wheat is abundant. In
1916 L. M. Waggoner of St. Joseph
-county, applied 200 pounds of acid phos
phate to the acre on all but a small part
a field sown to wheat. From the fer
tilized part he secured 22.4 bushels of
wheat to the acre, and on the unfertil
ized, 12.5 bushels to the acre-a gain of
9.9 bushels, due to fertilizing.
This year 200 pounds of acid phos
phate will cost about $2.25, and; wheat
is worth $2.00 per bushel: On this basis
the increase secured by Mr. Wagonner
would be worth $19.80 and the pirofit
after counting expensesof applying fer
'tilizer and paying for harvesting and
marketing the increased crop would be
more than $5 an acre. If that isn't a
case of swapping dollars for eagles it
comes very near to it.
The Ohio experiment station of Woos
ter, as an average for the last twenty
two years, has secured an increase of
8.0 bushels to the acre from an applica
tion of 160 pounds of acid phosphate to
the acre. The unphosphated yield has
been 11'2 bushels and the phosphated
19.2 bushels. Where 1000 pounds of
potash has been added to the phosphate
the yield has been 20.4 bushels to the
acre, or an increase of 1.2 bushels more
than was secured from phosphate alone.
Even at' present prices for wheat and
before-the-war prices for potash the in
crease- in the wheat crop was not suf
ficient to pay the cost of the 'potash.
The addition of potash to fertilizers
containing phosphorous and nitrogen
will not be profitable when applied to
clay and loam soils.
'Nine farmers out of ten should fer
tilize wheat this fall. Fertilizer not
only increases the yield directly, but
the greater supply of available plant
food makes stronger plants that with
stand the attack of fungus diseases and
insects better than those unfertilized.
At present prices the farmer may ex
r)ect a return of at least five dollars for
every dollar spent for wheat fertilizer
th-is fall.
The importance of ordering early
cannot be too strongly emphasized.
Those who order early will get what
-they want, while those who order late
will have to take what is left or do with,
