Each time it rained, more top soil washed down the gullies. Finally, only pure clay and rocks were left. A few years ago, the farm owner joined with his neighbors in organizing a soil conservation district. Using approved anti- erosion practices, he held most of the water on the slopes to soak in. Fertilizer made crops grow on the nearly sterile soil. Plow- down legumes built up humus, and restored tilth. Yields today are almost as good as on valley land and the money and time invested return substantial dividends. Soil conservation practices come first in reclaiming eroded acres . . . but the right kind of fertilizers . . . balanced to soil requirements . . . are essential, too. Cooperatives have led the way in soil testing, in formulating manufacturing and distributing fertilizers at lowest possible net cost. They play a big part in making it profitable to restore productivity to farms ruined by erosion. Patronize Your Cooperative TITONKA CO-OP ELEVATOR Jack Stott, Mgr. FARMERS CO-OP ELEVATOR, Bode R. L.
