Even farms have to be fed PDF (247.4 KB)
Release Week Beginning September 15 Even Farms Have to Be Fed By C. J. Chapman Wisconsin College of Agriculture WWE all know that crops the same as live stock need food to produce worth while returns. Yet some of us try to grow crops on land exhausted of all plant food, such as nitrogen, phosphorus, potash, and lime. Attempting to make profits on such soil I have found, is much like putting green glasses on a cow, feed- ing her sawdust, and expecting 10,000 pounds of milk. It can't he done. Although we return stable manure to the land, there is a constant drain on the mineral resources of the soil. Many soils contain practically no available plant food-- poor yields and immature crops result. By knowing the vital plant foods your soil needs, you know how to grow bigger crops and get plenty of rich home grown feed. It's really very simple to know the needs of your land. Just drop a line to the State Bofli Laboratory, Wisconsin College of Agriculture, Madison, and ask for detailed information on an individual farm soil survey. Write today and know their way of restoring life and richness to your fields. Another article by Mr. Chapman on improv- ing the soil will appear in an early issue.
