Farmers, in pushing for higher yields, are using a lot more nitrogen. Heavy ' nitrogen applications leave-acid residues in the soil which use up lime faster. Without "proper amounts of lime much of the phosphate in.. .the soil is unavailable .for. " plant use. If you haven't applied lime the last /several years : you'd better check the acidity of your soil. Apply enough lime to bring the pH level up to about 6.5.

The Cyanamid Feed- Health Program—described by-step here—shows you what to do to lick disease, -when to do it and how to do it. It's a' proved program'— practical, sound, easy to follow. Talk to your feed man. Ask him for your free folder which describes, in detail, the Cyanamid Feed-Health Program for layers and breeders.. If he cannot supply you, write direct to: American Cyanamid Company, Agricultural Division, New York 20, N.Y. 9ACBEOMYCIN is American Cyanamid Company's trademark for chlortetracycline. 1. Ctve them health hi the drinking water. First immediate step for replacement chicks is AUREOMYCIN* Soluble in the drinking water for first 48 hours. This assures adequate early intake of AUREOMYCIN to guard against CRD, synovitis and blue comb. f 2-Feed potentiated starter feed with Aureomycin. A PF starter containing 200 grams of AUREOMYCIN per ton, fed for 3 to 4 weeks, protects against CRD, synovitis, blue comb and coccidiosis — guards against vaccination reactions. *'*~nx>**ai^^m&^fm.*rvtzT JB*^atsiv:T~ -^-WSiSS^^Sf 3. Oust away Newcastle disease and bronchitis. Control Newcastle disease and infectious bronchitis simultaneously. Use Cyanamid Dust BIOLATOE®, or AQUAVAC® in the drinking water, at 1 to 7 days of age. Repeat at 3 to 4 weeks and 12 to 16 weeks of age. 4. Keep growing chicks healthy. At 4 ^^S 1 ag:e ' chan e e to grower feed with 0.02% Nitrophenide. Feed up to 12 weeks to control coccidiosis. If an outbreak occurs after 12 weeks, treat with SULMET» drinking water solution. The label instructions on Cyanamid products, and on products containing Cyanamid ingredients, are the result of years of research and have been accepted by Federal and/or State Gov- ermnents Always read the labels and carefully follow directions for use 5. Don't risk disease setbacks later. Use a potentiated treatment feed containing 200 grams of AUREOMYCIN per ton at any time trouble shows up, including coccidiosis outbreaks. AUREO- MYCIN effectively controls CRD, syno- vitis, blue comb as well as coccidiosis. 6. House more top-performing hens. When you follow this program, you put more healthy pullets in the laying house. At the first sign of trouble- drop in feed consumption or slump in egg production—use a feed containing AUREOMYCIN. CYANAMID SERVES THE MAN WHO MAKES A BUSINESS OF AGRICULTURE COORDINATED FEED-HEALTH PROGRAM Proper placement of starter fertilizer is important for good stands and high yields of corn. Offset attachments place the fertilizer about two inches to the side and two inches below the seed (see circle above) rather than right in the row. This avoids damage to seed germination which sometimes occurs at higher rates of application using the split-boot. Increasing use of fertilizer has caused farmers to seek cheaper sources. Bulk purchase has helped this farmer, as well as many others, reduce the fertilizer bill. It has also eliminated the back-breaking job of handling bags. The advent of granular fertilizers has increased bulk handling. Powder forms, when handled this way, are likely to take on moisture and cake.
