Mr. Hamand's research includes a survey of 60 per cent of all Iowa schools with enrollments of between 100 and 30$.;- A side-dressing of 100-200 Ibs. of muiiate of potash per acre as late as the second or third cultivation has resulted in very profitable increases in yield. However, it is better' to make the side-dressing as early as possible. Alkali soils are known to be low in available potash. If you did not apply enough of this plant food.in your fertilizer at planting time, plan now to apply more in a side-dressing. The best machine for the purpose is a fertilizer attachment on a corn cultivator, but any distributor which will plat* the potash in the moist soil near the roots will be satisfactory; Write us for, free information and literature on the use of potash for profit.
