The farmers who paid of last fall, of made an honest effort to do so, as well as others who may be able to meet the requirements, will probably be able fo obtain Federal loans this year. The rate of interest U nominal, and the advantage of cash buying wilt add to the value of tt federal loan for crop production. The federal loans were made last year to buy seed, feed and fertiltrtr. There wil doubtless be some modification this year, and greater ItrtutatlohS IBS to' the purposes for which the Federal money will be loaned, However, It is practically a ceHtainty that if these loans are made, the farmers will be able to borrow money to buy fertilizer. , The extent to which farmers will use fertilizer this year is uncertain. Last year, the farmers of the entire state used only 42,653 tons of mixed fertUizer, and 14,000 tons of fertilizer materials, making a total of 56,653 tons all told. The 'crop season last year was good, and the state as a whole made an extraordinary yield of all crops. The drouth of the previous year contributed to this. Due to the drouth in 1930, only a minimum amount of the available plant food in the soil Was used and most of the commercial fertilizer applied to the crops remained in the soil for lack of moisture to make it available. Hence in 1931' there was more plant food available for the crops than in any previous year. The ' favorable weather conditions of last year enabled the crops td feed lavishly on the plant food for the crops of this year. It seems fair to calculate that there will be greater necessity for fertilizer this year than previously'' Those Who think ttfey can make just as good-, crops this year, without fertilizer are simply -fooling themselves, unless they are farming virgin soil or very rich and fertile .bottom lands. It so happens that the\price of fertilizer is cheaper this year than for many years past. The cost of 4-10-4 fertilizer to the farmer, on a cash basis, will be $30 per ton 'or less. One pound 'of 4-10-4 fertilizer '•will, on an average, make one pound additional of seed cotton. Even at'the present price of cotton, fertilizer will pay approximately fifty per cent on the investment on cotton, and on other crops equally as well pir better, fertilizer will pay on.a corn crop. The farmer who produces only twelve bushels of corn per acre will not profit. Such a farmer can make his crop profitable by applying two hundred pounds of fertilizer per acre. The seed cost and labor is the same,, whether the yield is ten bushels or forty , bushels per acre, and it takes the same time to mature the crop. Good farmers will either use fertilizer or use land they ners New Requirements Mint Fill Out Qutttien* nftift in Order to Kffp Him* en Roll QueMlonnftlws to be filled ewt by Confederate pensioners are b pared and will be ready for lion to the pensioners by Fe it is announced by J.

It is, in my opinion, good business for the farmers to use fertilizer on their best land and let the poor land lay,out or plant it to some legume crop 1 as soy beans, lespedeza or cow peas, and build it up. The price, of farm pro ducts is entirely too low to justify the farmers in farming poor land without fertilizer. It would be better to farm fewer acres, well fertilized, than 'to attempt to farm-a large acreage Of poor land. If the poor land cannot be that will improve the soil, it is man- utilizea in the growing of some crop ifestly better to let it lie idle for the time being than to plant and cultivate a crop.on it that will not pay for the time and labor. This is one year the farmers of Arkansas need to be .good business managers as' well as 'good farmers.
