WHAT 1 KNOW OF FARMING.
BY HORACE GREELEY
I bate to cheek improvement or
Chill the' low of Faith ; 'yet I do so
keenly apprehend that many of our
people, especially among the Southern
nottongrowere,are squandering money
l gommercial Fertilizers, that I am
utter my note of Warning,
even though it should pass wholly un
hc;eded. Let me make my position as
clear as I can.
I live in a section which has been
cultivated for more than two centu
ries, while its proximity to a great
city has tempted to crop it incessant
ly, exhaustively. Wheat while its
original surface soil of six or twelve
inches of vegetable mold (mainly com
posed of decayed forestleaves) remain
ed; then Corn and Oats; at length,Milk,
Beef and Applos—have,exhausted the
hill-sides and . gentler slopes of West
chester 'County, 'except whore they
havlts.betcyliePt in.heartby judicious
culture arid liberal fertilizing ; and
even here, that subtle element Phos
phorus, which enters minutely but
necessarily into the compositiod
'every animal and nearly every vege,
table structure, ,bas- been gradually
drawn away in Grain, in in
Bones, and not restored to the soil by
the application of ordinary manures.
I afn'Oritirieed.:that a field_ritay.be', so
mt4Fed as to groiv - three While flay
per4ere, yet so :destitute of Phosphor
us that it sourid, hbalthy
. aohnoi can
not ,tie grown therefrom. FOrt two
eentnties, the- tillers of Westchester
County knew nothing of,Cheinistry or
Pqmpliorns, and allowed the unvalued
bones of their animals to be exported to
fatten, British meodoWSWithottt gn ef
for6i4 retain them: liende, - it has be
co 'absolutely essential that we buy
anaatpply .Phosphates, even -though
the price be high; for our land can no
longer do without them. Wherever a
. .pte_kr or heifer can occasionally- be
caught grutiVingOr mumbling over an
old bone',Viere Phosphates are indis
pensable, no matter at what eost..!--1
Better pay. $1.09 petztun fotTA dressing
of one hundred pounds of Bone, per
acre than try Ledo without.
But no lands recently brought into
citliiitition—i-no lands where the bones
of the animals fed thereon have been
allowed, for unnumbered years past,to
mingle" witlithe.sbil—can be - equally
hungry for Phosphates ; and I deal) t
that any cotton-field in the South will
ever return an outlay of even $5O per
tun for any Phosphatic fertilizer what
ever. That any preparation of Bone,
or, whereof Bone is a principal element,
will increase the succeeding crops, is
undoubted ; but that it' will over re
turn its cost and a decent margin of
profit, is yet to be demonstrated to
my , satisfaction.
No doubt, there are spebial cases in
. which the application even of Peruvian
Guano at $9O per tun is advisable. A
compost of Muck, Lime, &c, equally
efficient, might be far cheaper ; but
Months would be required to prepare
and perfect it, and meantime the far
mer would lose his crop, or fail to
;make one. If a tun of Guano, or of
some expensive Phosphate, will give
!hint six or eight acres of Clover where
he would otherwise have little or
.none, and he needs that Clover to feed
the team wherewith he is breaking up
and fitting his farm to grow a good
'crop next year, he may wisely make
the purchase and application, even
though he may be able to compoSt for
next year's use twice the value of fer
tilizers for the precise cost of this
I am so thorough in my devotion
to "home industry," that I hold him
an unskillful farmer who cannot, nine
times in' ten, make, mainly from mate
rials to be found on or near his farm, a
pile of compost for $lOO that - will add
more to the enduring fertility 'of his
farm than anything he can bring from
a distance at a cost of $l5O. "
Understand that this is a general
rule, and subject,like all general rules,
to exceptions. Gypsum, I think every
farmer should buy ; Lime also, if his
soil needs it; Phosphates: in some
shape, if past ignorance or - folly has
allowed that soil to be despoiled of
them ; Wood Ashes, if any ono can be
found so brainless as to sell them ;
Marl of Course, whero it is found with
in ten miles; Guano very rarely, and
mainly when something is needed to
make a crop before coarser and colder
fertilizers can be brought into a con
dition of fitness for use ; but the gen
eral rule I insist on is this : A good
farmer will, in the course of twenty
years, make at least $lO worth of fer-
tilizers for every dollar's worth he
buys from any dealer, unless it. be the
sweeping- or other excretions of some
- net - distant city:
I have used Guano frequently, and,
though it has generally made its mark,
I never yet felt sure that it returned
me a profit over its coat. Phosphates
have done better, especially where ap
plied to Corn in the hill, either at the
time of planting or later; yet my
strong impression is that Flour of
Bone, applied broadcast and freely,
especially when Wheat or Oats are
sown on a field that is to be laid down
to grass, pays better and more surely
than anything else I order from the
City, Gypsum, and possibly Oyster-
Shell Lime, excepted.
My experience can be no safe guide
for others, since it is not proved that
the anterior condition and needs of
their soils aro precisely like those of
mine. I apprehend that Guano has
not had a fair trial on my place—that
carelessness in pulverizing or in appli
cation has caused it to "waste its
sweetness on the desert air," or that a
drouth following its application has
prevented the duo development of
its virtues. And still my impression
that Guano :is _tlict; brandy of vege
tation, supplying 'to plants stimu
lus rather than , nutrition, is so clear
and strong that it may not easily be
effaced. It seems to me plainly ab
stil:ll to: send. ten tbOusandrr.ils for
this stimulant, when this or any other
great city annually poisons its own
atmosphere and the adjacent waters
with excretions, which aro of very
similar character and value,and which
Science and Capital might combine to
utilize at lesS' then half the Jost of like
elements in. the form of Guano.
- My object in this paper is to incite
experiment and careful observation.
No farmer should absolutely trust
aught but his own senses. A Rhode
Islander once* assured me that he ap
plied to four acres of thin, slaty gravel
one hundred pounds per acre of Ni
trate of Soda which cost him $1 per
hundred, and obtained therefrom four
additional tuns of good IlaY, worth
$l5 per tun : Not profit (after allow
ing for the cost of making . the Hay,)
say $3O. He might not be so fortunate
on a second trial; and there may not
be another-four acres of the earth's
surface where Nitarte of Soda would
do so well ; but, should I ever have a
fair opportunity, I mean to see what
a little of that Nitrate will do for mu.
I hope farmers may more and more be
