For tome, it will be among the best bete for cutting costs this year. Sure/ fertilizer adds to your total and per acre costs. But with proper use. it can spread that cost over extra bushels or tons — enough to lower the actual cost per unit. Fall and early winter buying in much of the Corn Belt has been light com' pared to past years. So a heavy/ last-minute run on fertilizer may be in the cards. And a shortage of rail cars is almost e certainfy. This may slow the movement of fertilizer raw ma> terials. Getting the beet buy is even more important now that costs are threatening your business. Often high analysis fertilizers are the cheapest per unit> of plant food supplied. But you can't even take that for granted. Pull out your pencil, and do some figuring when you get the local prices. It's likely to pay, especially on phosphate and nitrogen. Some price discounts are still in effect for early buyers. But most of them decrease as spring comes closer. Some farmers will be able to spread fertilizer now. Any open period permits bulk spreading on ley- el fields. Or on those with, contoured, gentle slopes. Frozen soils are not packed by loaded trucks that do the spreading for you, Fenton Co-Op Elevator Wbtfff You Tlid* With Yourself and fnmily. Mr and Mrs S. E.
