HOW TO USE FERTILISERS. [Newspaper Article] — Northcote Leader — 11 April 1914
HOW TO USE FERTILISERS. The guiding principle In tlio appli cation of manures is to use them as supplementary to the natural soil re sources, and not as a main source of fertility. .Most good agricultural soils contain vast stores of dormant plant food, and tiio aim should be to develop as much as possible of this plant food latent in the soil by thorough cultiva tion, supplementing any deficiencies with fertilisers. What those deficien cies are can best be found out by uc iunl experiment, and, having deter mined them, tho problem for each farmer and orcliardlst Is to ascertain the mast 'profitable and economic way of supplying the soil's needs. In all districts, with a light rainfall, super phosphate is likely to continue the most profltuiblo of all phosplmtic man ures. In the wetter areas, however, especially ou soils deficient'In limo, basic slag, or Thomas' phospfiato is *1 valuable adjunct to the production of good crops. 1
