You ore Invited Soil Fer & Weed TUESDAY, MARCH 3-DISTRICT COURT ROOM Soil Fertility and the proper use of fertilizers as weH as Weed and Insect Control are becoming more important every year to the farmers of this area. It is for this reason we join with The Extension Service and the Northwest Experiment Authorities in inviting our farmer friends to attend the Soil Fertility meeting next Tuesday.

The test itself will be done at the soils testing laboratory of the Extension Service in Lubbock. You can get a soil container and blanks from the County Agent's office. 1. Dig a hole 6 to 8 inches deep 2. Take a half-inch slice off one side with a spade, the full depth. 3. Repeat this at 10 to 12 places over the field. 4. Mix all the dirt thoroughly in a clean bucket. 5. Take out one pint to be sent to Lubbock for testing. 6. Repeat in each field you want a soil test for. 7. A copy of the analysis will be sent you and the county agent's office. To give accurate recommendation, your county agent will need to know: 1. Kind and depth of soil. 2. Previous cropping history 3.
