A side-dressing of 100-200 Ibs. of muriate 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 i 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 placV the potash in the moist soil near the roots will be satisfactory.'
