CORRESPONDENTS' NOTES.
ALACHUA COUNTY-Stand of crops is generally good, and condition
fair, considering we are wanting rain badly.
BAKER COUNTY-We have a fine prospect for a good crop at present,
good stand; corn, cotton and oats, all are looking well; we have had good
seasons so far.
BRADFORD COUNTY-The stand of field crops is on the whole good, and
the condition, considering the season, is also good; fruit trees are looking
well.
BREVARD COUNTY-The field crops we grow here are very good; fruit
trees are looking very fine, and the prospect seems good for a heavy yield.
The truck crops are about an average, though potatoes are rather poor.
CALHOUN COUNTY-The late wet spring made planting very late, but
crops are coming along nicely, and if the spring continues favorable, crops
will do well. Garden crops are also late; fruit trees are making a fine
showing.
CITRUS COUNTY-The average stand of most crops is good; seed corn
was nearly all destroyed by November freezes, and the stand is bad and
condition poor; corn has also fallen off some, on account of the drill
worm, and also from cold nights, which retards the growth very. much;
fruit crops are doing well, except pears, which are'about ruined by the
blight.
CLAY COUNTY-All crops are growing off nicely so far, and seasons are
favorable; stands of crops are generally fine; fruit doing well.
COLUMBIA COUNTY-All crops are growing nicely, with good stand;
melons and fruit give promise of splendid yields.
DADE COUNTY-Weather is very dry, but crops are all doing well; fruit
trees are growing well, and promise a good crop.
DESOTO COUNTY-Weather conditions rather dry as a whole. The red
spiders are doing considerable damage to orange and grape fruit trees.
There have been large crops of all kinds planted, and with good season.
the county will produce a great deal; the motive being the high prices for
nearly everything.
ESCAMBIA COUiNTY-A good many crops are just being planted and
not up yet; the stand are so far good, and also the general condition; fruit
crops are promising so far.
FRANKLIN COUNTY-The average stand of crops is very good, though
they are late on account of the backward spring; condition is fair, but
rains are needed.

the county; all crops are late, but in very good condition.

*e. work have progressed very favorable; the outlook at this time is good;
stand and condition of crops both good.
JACKSON COUNTY-We have good stands of corn and cotton, but a little
i.ackward on account of late spring; oats are doing well and bid fair to
.make a good crop. Conditions are generally favorable, and with present
Prospects good yields may be expected.
JEFFERSON COUNTY-Planting was very late owing. to the backward
spring, but crops are now showing good stands and are in fair condition,
considering the cricumstances.
LAFAYETTE COUNTY-The cold wet spring made planting late and crops
liave been slow coming up, but the stand and condition of crops are both
Qmp to the average; the peach crop is very promising.
LAKE COUNTY-Crops are all doing very well, a good stand, and condi-
ction generally fine; vegetable crops fine; fruit crops also look well.
LEE COUNTY-We are having fine season for vegetable growing; some
of our growers report as much from $800 to $1,400 per acre for pepper,
s4qash cucumbers,- tomatoes, egg plants, strawberries, etc. Shipments
will continue as long as prices are good; watermelons and cantaloupes
soet ready for market yet; beets, Irish potatoes, cauliflower and celery

fruit never promised better; the seasons are a little late, but crops are

OSCEOLA COUNTY-The spring is very dry; we had two fine showers

all crops with the exception of Irish potatoes on low land which were in-
jured by heavy rain; peaches are away above the average at their season;
velvet beans were never as good; corn is good; cabbage not much more than
half a crop, but prices fair; orange trees are doing well, and when large
enough are full of small fruit, now well set on tree, and with the moist-
ure already received, they are not likely to drop off to any extent.
TAYLOR COUNTY-The lateness of the season and heavy rain kept
planting back, and the land in some localities was so wet that crops did
not come up as well as some years; the stand is a fair average, and the av-
erage conditions are fair; the peach crop promises to be good.
WAKULLA COUNTY-Crops were very late in being planted, owing to un-
favorable and backward spring, but they have come up well and are
growing fast; the average is above the usual; the peach crop bids fair
to be a large one.
WALTON COUNTY-All crops are in fine condition, and are growing
well; the stands are all good, and every thing promising; melon and
peach crops are unusually fine.

VALUATIONS. .
For Available and Insoluble Phosphoric Acid, Ammonia and
Potash for the Season of 1901-19J2.
Available Phosphoric Acid............... 5 cents a pound
Insoluble Phosphoric Acid ................1 cent a pound
Ammonia (or its equivalent in nitrogen).... 15 cents a pound
Potash (as actual potash, K20)......... 51 cents per pound
If caluclated by units-
Available Phosphoric Acid ................ $1.00 per unit
Insoluble Phosphoric Acid ..............20 cents per unit
Ammonia (or its equivalent in nitrogen) .... $3.00 per unit
Potash.......... .... ................. $1.10 per unit
With a uniform allowance of $2.00 per ton for mixing and
bagging.
A unit is twenty pounds, or 1 per cent in a ton. We fini
this to be the easiest and quickest method for calculating the
value of a fertilizer. To illustrate this take for example a
fertilizer which analyzes as follows:
Available Phosphoric Acid, 6.39x1.00 ...............$ 6.39
Insoluble Phosphoric Acid, 1.15x.20 ................ .23
Ammonia, 4.93x3.00.............. 14.79
Potash, 7.11x1.10 ............... 7.82
Mixing and bagging .......... ................. 2.00

$31.23
The above valuations are for cash for materials delivered at
Florida seaports, and they can be bought in one ton lots at
these price at the date of issuing this Bulletin. Where fer-
tilizers are bought at interior points, the additional freight to
that poin- must be added.
If purchased in car load lots for cash, a reduction of twenty
per cent. can be made in above valuations, i. e.:
Available Phosphoric Acid.............. 80 cents per unit
Potash (K20) ........................88 cents per unit
Ammonia (or equivalent in nitrogen)....... .$2.40 per unit
The valuations and market prices in succeeding illustra-
tions, are based on market prices for one ton lots.

Suggestions to Purchasers.


By carefully studying the foregoing analysis of fertilizers, noting their
actual content of the necessary fertilizing elements, namely: ammonia,
potash (K2 0), available and insoluble phosphoric acid-the only in-
gredients of any value to the grower--discarding all "Fancy Brands,"
"Names" or "Trade Marks;" paying no attention to "Equivalents of Bone
Phosphate of Lime" or equivalent of "Sulphate or Muriate of Potash" or
equivalents of "Nitrate of Soda" or "Sulphate of Ammonia;" basing his
calculations solely on the agricultural and commercial values of the good,
offered as shown by the percentage of the three elements of fertility re-
quired, and comparing the tables and analysis given with the commercial
values, the planter, knowing from experience the particular elements his
crop or soil demands, can intelligently select the goods required, and ap-
proximate closely the commercial value thereof.
The State Law requires that:
Sec. 3. Every bag, barrel, or other package of commercial fertilizers,
cotton seed meal, castor pomace, tobacco stems, tobacco dust, or tobacco
meal manufactured, sold in, or imported into this State, shall have se-
curely attached or labeled, and plainly stamped thereon the number of
net pounds of fertilizer in the package, the name, brand or trade mark
under which the fertilizer is sold, the name and address of the manu-
facturer and the chemical analysis, stating the percentage of ammonia,
and the source from which the same is derived, the percentage of potash
soluble in water, the percentage of available phosphoric acid and the per-
centage of insoluble phosphoric acid, the percentage of moisture contain-
ed therein, also the maximum percentage of chlorine therein, and all other
ingredients from which it is compounded, also the stamp showing the pay-
ment of the license fee provided for in this act.
The Sheriffs of the counties of this State are hereby authorized, and it
is hereby made their duty to seize and sell at public sale, each and every
bag, barrel or package of commercial fertilizer, cotton seed meal, castor
pomace, tobacco stems, tobacco dust or tobacco meal manufactured, im-
ported into or sold in this State, which shall not have securely attached
the tag or label and stamp mentioned in this Section; Provided, That
should the owner show to the satisfaction of the Sheriff that such tag or
label or stamp had been attached and the same had become detached, the
Sheriff shall release the same without cost to the owner.
When "Phosphoric Acid" only is given on the tag, or the "equivalent of
Bone Phosphate of Lime," it may be taken as insoluble to a large ex-
tent. Florida Rock Phosphate contains 26 to 35 per cent. of "phosphoric
acid" equivalent to 50 to 86 per cent. of "Bone Phosphate of Lime." Its
commercial value is $5.20 to $7.00. The same rock converted into
"Superphosphate" or "Acid Phosphate" with 14 to 19 per cent. "avail-
able" has a commercial value of $12.60 to $17.10, while its agricultural






value is proportionately much greater as raw or untreated rock, has but
little agricultural value.
The Phosphoric Acid of "Superphosphate," "Acid Phosphate," and
"dissolved bone" are identical chemically and agriculturally. Large quan-
tities of "Acid Phosphate" are used and sold as "Dissolved Bone," ad-
vantage being taken of a prejudice existing against a name or term, the
available phosphoric acid of "Acid Phosphate" is equally valuable as that
from "bones," commercially and agriculturally.
On this subject the following quotation from the report of the State
Chemist of Georgia, for 1899-1900, serial number 36, is pertinent:
"It should be borne in mind always that State valuations are relative
and approximate only, and are only intended to serve as a guide. It is
much to be desired that farmers should study the analysis giving the ac-
tual percentages of plant food more, and pay no attention whatever to
names and brands. They should realize, for instance, that in nine case-
out of ten, brands known as "Pure Dissolved Bone" contain not a particle
of bone, but are made simply out of phosphate rock. They are every
"whit and grain" as good as if they were made from bone, the available
phosphoric acid from rock being just as available and identically the same
as the available phosphoric acid from bone. The proof that such brands
are not made from bone is that they contain no ammonia, and if they
were made from bone the percentage of ammonia would be stated, and
it would be charged for. This is only one instance of the folly of being
influenced by names and brands-many might be given. Remember that
a multiplicity of brands is also expensive to the manufacturer, and you
have to pay the cost in the long run. Study the markets, select a time for
purchasing when general trade in fertilizers is dull, club together with
some of your neighbors whose credit is of the best, or, better, who have
a little spare cash, and then order from a reliable manufacturer, stipulat-
ing, if you have a preference, just what materials the goods shall be made
from, and especially the guaranteed percentage of ammonia, phosphoric
acid and potash. Let the maker call it anything he pleases. In this way
you will be sure to have a first-class goods bought at the lowest market
price. But if you are going to wait till the last minute to buy your fer-
tilizers, at the very time when everybody else wants his, and are going to
buy on time and pay interest, why then be assured your fertilizers are go-
ing to be expensive just as your clothing or any of your household goods
would be if bought in the same way."
The following price list of manurial chemicals is quoted by reputable
dealers and importers in Jacksonville in lots of one to ten tons. The same
figures can be made in Pensacola or Tampa, for spot cash f. o. b. cars:

"Blood and Bone," "Tankage," "Garbage" and numerous other by
products are excellent fertilizers, but depend solely on their "Ammonia,"
"Phosphoric Acid" and "Potash" for their value, the "odor" or smell
has no value. Their analysis is the only safe guide as to their agricultural
value.
The phosphoric acid of "Superphosphate," "Acid Phosphate," and "dis-
solved bone" are identical chemically and agriculturally. Large quantities
of "Acid Phosphate" are used and sold as "Dissolved Bone," advantage be-
ing taken of a prejudice existing against a name or term, the available
phosphoric acid of "Acid Phosphate" is equally valuable as that from
"bones," commercially and agriculturally.

COTTON SEED MEAL.
The attention of consumers of cotton seed meal, either for stock feeding.
or fertilizing purposes, is called to the analysis of various brands.
Pure, bright cotton seed meal shows a content of 8 per cent. and above in
ammonia, 2 per cent. or more of available phosphoric acid, and 1 per cent.
of potash. Such meal is now selling at $26.50 per ton at seaport. Its com-
mercial value is as follows:
8 per cent. ammonia @ $3.00..........................$24 00
2 per cent. available phosphate @ $1.00 ................. 2 00
1 per cent. potash @ $1.10 ............................ 1 65
The commercial value being in excess of the market value.
There is a quantity of cotton seed meal offered in the State labeled
"For feeding purposes only." These goods are guaranteed as follows:
4J to 5 per cent. ammonia.
11 to 2 per cent. phosphoric acid.
1 to 2 per cent. potash.
Their commercial value compared to pure meal is as follows:
4J per cent. ammonia ..................................$13 50
1 per cent. phosphoric acid ............................ 1 75
1 per cent. potash .................................... 1 65

Commercial value ................................ $16 90










These goods are sold at $1.00 to $2.00 per ton less than prime meal,
Their relative value is $10.75 less than prime meal. There is no economy
in the use of such goods; on the contrary, a direct loss. This applies as
forcibly to the feeder, or dairyman, as it does to the planter, the value of
the meal depending only on its content of amomnia, phosphoric acid and
potash in both cases. Purchasers should buy according to the analysis,
and pay for the actual content of the valuable elements only.

ORGANIC AMMONIATES.
It is generally conceded by pineapple growers that the sulphates of am-
monia and potash are harmful to pineapples. The universalpracticeamong
the pineapple growers is to use organic fertilizers only-cotton seed meal,
castor pomace, blood and bone for ammoniates; ashes, tobacco and nitrate
of potash for potash.
.lood and bone supplying ammonia and phosphoric acid, considerable.
"Tankage" and "Garbage," reinforced by sulphate of ammonia, has been
found in the State an unquestionably valuable fertilizer for certain crops,
generally acknowledges hurtful to pines.
The State law, section 3, requires the manufacturers to state in the
"guarantee on each package the percentage of ammonia and the source
from which it is derived." A failure to state the source of the ammonia
in a fertilizer is a violation of the law.
Purchasers requiring only "organic ammoniate" in their fertilizers
should see that this important part of the guarantee is complied with.

MECHANICAL CONDITION.
A number of complaints have been made to the department this season
of failure of vegetable crops, using certain brands of goods. On exam-
ination chemically, these goods have been found well within the guarantee
of their makers. The same goods (that is, goods having the same amounts
of fertilizing elements) have proved satisfactory to growers in the same
localities, and under the same conditions. The difference in results can be
attributed solely to the imperfect grinding and failure to properly mix the
goods complained oft In all cases the best results have been had from
those goods having the best mechanical condition.
Other things being equal, those goods most finely pulverized and mixed
have proved most satisfactory. Coarse ground "Blood and Bone," "Tank-
age" and "Mixed Fertilizers" using such ground material in compounding,
have proved unsatisfactory in producing quick results, as demanded by the
vegetable growers of the State.
That the mechanical condition of commercial fertilizers has much to do
with results, has been practically demonstrated, particularly among the
vegetable growers of the State.
