With curly tomatoes farmers can lake a d v a n t a g e of the growing market for "green wraps" In Northwest. Arkansas. The market for Ihese tomatoes usually opens Up right after July 4. M u l , If a farmer'doesn't gel his lornaloes planted u n t i l lain May, he doesn't usually have any tomo- locs In sell u n t i l late ,Iuly. Thus he's missed a sizeable part of the market.

And J i m m y , / a 17-year-old wounded veteran with 14 months In the service and 3t4 months in Korea- knows what he is talking about. He's back, in Bck Vocational a machinists' course. He explains his Army experience w i t h : "The rccruiling officer didn't ask my. age." n u t for his service record, II was given as IB. He was 15 when ho enlisted June n, 1CSO. Four months later he landed In Japan with an infantry regiment. Early in November, 1950, his outfit reached Korea to relieve the First Marines.

N a t u r a l l y the question arises as to w h a t fertilizers (lime included in Ihe term fertilizer) fire to be 'stressed. It is clear that Ihe soil lest or analysis is the first step in the answer of that question. However, some thought should be given, to the question after or.c received the reply from the -person who tests his soils. The .most Important point to remember is that we cannot gel maximum benefit from the. fertility. wo already have In the ground unless our sollc arc neutral. Acid soils place a lot of iron and a l u m i n u m In solution which in turn lock up our phosphorous, a most needed clement in North- West Arkansas, To correct t h a t acid condition lime must be arid- efl, If one adds enough lime to bring, his soil to neutral condition he will Ihcn get the maximum bcncflMrom all his soil fertility, I nitrogen, phosphoroun, and potassium Included. That's his No. I fertility problem. But one must be careful and not add loo much lime. Too much linie (loo' niuch basic condition) again locks up our most ircdcd clement, phosphorous. Do not apply more than Ihe rec- Immcndations of the one who tests he soil. then a.lot of commercial nitrogen must be added. Then our 1052 fertilizer problem Is: First, lime for neutralizing a c i d i f y ; second, phosphorous for our Northwest Arkansas deficiency; third, potash where we arc removing the e n t i r e plant without manure returns; and f o u r t h , nitrogen, where non-legumes plants arc removed cnllrly without m a n u r e returns.
