' r**nr+~r~. . ,.•••);«. FERTILIZE! This is a "dry" spring — and many farmers are delaying their fertilizer program this year "until wo get rain." THIS IS A MISTAKE I Fertilizer applied NOW is your best hedge against loss in yield during a dry growing season — regardless of whether or not you have moisture at this time. Actual records prove it. Here are the Facts: In 1955, a test at Iowa Stale College showed the following results; Corn (no fertilizer) 43.8 bu. per acre Corn (40 Ibs. Nitrogen) 73.8 bu. per acre Corn (80 Ibs. Nitrogen) 83.9 bu. per acre In 1953, 'also a dry year, farmers who fertilized were able to get 60-bushel yields. Farmers who did not fertilize often had to settle for as little as 20 bushels per acre. CUT YOUR FERTILIZER COSTS ! Buy From Your Eagle Grove Plant!
