Until the plant goes in operation, operation, these. new fertilizer solutions will be trucked in from plants already in operation operation and distributed by the company. Mr. Scott and Mr. Hicks believe believe these new fertilizer solutions solutions have a great potential in this area due to their ease of handling and application and low cost. They are non- corrosive, have no vapor pressure, and may be handled in any kind of water-or gasoline gasoline container. They may be applied in the irrigation water, sprayed or dripped on top of the ground, or placed several inches deep in the soil with applicator machines. Two companies hi the Rio Grande Valley and one company company in Louisiana reported excellent crop results from these solutions last year. Another new liquid fertilizer fertilizer called aqua ammonia will also be distributed by the company this year. This fertilizer fertilizer is essentially the same aj anhydrous ammonia except except that it has been diluted down from 82',; nitrogen to 2l'/r nitrogen. The aqua ammonia ammonia will be distributed principally around Waller by the company's agents there, the Cater Products Co.
