Read What Wallace's Farmer Has To Say About Buying Fertilizer NOW IN SPITE of dropping prices for farm products, fertilizer looks like a good investment for many Corn Belt farmers. For some, it will be among the best bets for cutting costs this year. Sure, fertilizer adds lo your total and per acre costs. But with proper use, it can spread thai cost over extra bushels or ions enough to lower the actual cost per unit. Fall and early winter buying in much of the Corn Belt has been light compared to past years. So a heavy, last-minute run on fertilizer may be in ihe cards. And a shortage of rail cars is almosi a certainly. This may slow the movement of fertilizer raw materials. Gelling ihe besl 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 ihem 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 thai do the spreading for you.
