He says:—"Further inquiry goes to show;.that in some way potash is an essential p«irt of the mcchanism of the process'of assimilation ; 'when it in deficient the manufacture of carbo hydrates, like starch, sugar, and cellu lose,', is greatly roduced, nnd in nractico it is. the crops rich in enrbouydratfl which aro most dependent upon full supply of potash."
