THE FARM. A VAILABILITY OF FERTILISERS. [Newspaper Article] — Malvern Courier and Caulfield Mirror — 27 March 1914

THE FARM. 1 A V A11 j A III ] jl T Y OF FERTILISERS. i The value of a fertiliser for crops does not depend on its total per centage of ammonia, phosphate of lime nnd potuHh, but upon the per centage of those constituents that the growing crop can utilise. This is the point that a farmer hns to look at when considering cUi cucy of an artificial manure. There are « good many substances that contain a high percentage of one or the other fertilising constituents hut the constituents are in such an inert form that they afford little or no nourishment to the crop. They "analyse well," but are bad fertilisers. A glaring instance of this- class of suhstanco (the "Mark Lane Express" points out) is ground leather. It contains a very large percentage of ammonia, but decom poses so slowly that it has no right to the title "fertiliser." The plant asks for food and is given mot ex actly a stone, but something near ly as hard. With the present sys tem of intensive cultivation, in which largo quant...
