Fertilizer Needs
It’s soil testing time again for
fields that are going into alfalfa
early in August or into small
grain this fall. The best time to
apply the lime is to work it into
the topsoil prior to the seeding
of the crop. A complete soil test
will reveal the amount of lime
needed as well as the major fer
tilizer needs. Producers are
urged to take the soil samples
now so that time will he allowed
to buy and apply the lime and
fertilizer needs. Lime and fertil
izer go together for maximum
crop yields; a shortage of one of
these soil elements will reduce
crop yields.'
