Are these forms •of nitrogen present in the mixed fertilizers you spread on your soil to get bigger and better crops f If so r do yoja realize these forms of nitrogen are rapidly increasing the acidity of your soil and that in a few years this acidity if unchecked may reach the\ point where any fertilizer used will be less effective? The Agronomists of one of the southern states report that the use of acid forming nitrogen as fertilizer material has increased from 30% to 84% in the last 12 years. Their experiments show that acid forming fertilizers used on unlimed land produced smaller crop3 than fertilizers which had become neutralized s With limestone and dolomite. On land that was adequately limed the results from both the acid and neutral fertilizers were the same. Farmers particularly in the humid area or eastern half of the tjnited States should ascertain whether or not the fertilizer they buy Is acid forming or if it has been neutralized. In the more arid areas , or the western part of our country this is-less important because most lolls are alkaline and either type of material will be equally effective. < Farmers in the humid areas, however, need to know the condition of the**\ soil and the composition of the fertilizer ttseU If it is acid lorming, they need*to use greater quantities ; of limestone to keep the soil in condition to utilize both native and applied plant foods,. An acid soil is an unproductive sdil for nearly all crops especially, grasses, legumes and other crops of maximum benefit to dairymen and Cattle- men. Farmers should use both fertilizers and lime wisely to promote plant growth, increase yields and profits. \ l '\\''\\'\ ri ' \ ' ^ ' ' ' ' ' ||| Mi r || .Ul.i . r | ' Pilot Training To Open For High School Grads Eflectiv Nor. l< t the Air $tafce will r.hange its eligibility requirements for pilot applicants, it ha,s; be'eri art* aouuced 'by *T-SgV F.
