STATE VALUATIONS, 1904.
por Available and Insoluble Phosphoric Acid, Ammonia
and Potash for the Season of 1904.
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) 5- cents a pound
If calculated 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 $1.25 per ton for mixing
and bagging.
A unit is twenty pounds, or 1 per cent in a ton. We
find this to be the easiest Atnd quickest method for calcu-
lting the value of fertilizer. To illustrate this take 'for
example a fertilizer which analizes as follows:
Available Phosphoric Acid.. 6.22 per <-ent.x$1.00- 6.22
Insoluble Phosphoric Acid.. 1.50 per cent.x .20- .30
Ammonia .................. 3.42 per ctnt.x 3.00- 10.26
Potash.... ..... ........7.23 per cent.x 1.10- 7.95
Mixing and bagging......... 1.25

Commercial value at sea ports...... ..........25.98
Or a fertilizer analyzing as follows :
Available phosphoric acid.. ..8 per cent.x$1.00-$ 8.00
Ammonia................... .2 per cent.x 3.00- 6.00
Potash ......... ..........2 per cent.x 1-10- 2.20
Mixing and bagging....... ........ ..... 1.25

Commercial value at sea ports.........,..........17.45
The above valuations are for cash for materials'deliv-
-red at Florida seaports, and' hey :an be bought' ifi'- ohe
ton lots at these prices at'the date of i'ssiing fhit B-ille-
'~'n. Where fertilizers are bought at interior pointt,'the
S..additional freight to that polht' niusf be added:

I purchased in car load lots for cash, a reduction of
ten per cent. can be made in above valuations,,i, 6.:,
Available Phosphoric Acid 93 cents per unit-
Potash (K20) 99 cents per iqnit
Ammonia (or equivalent in nitrogen) $2 70 per unit
The valuations and market prices in succeeding illus-'
trations, are based on market prices for one ton lots.

SPECIAL NOTICE.
f The attention of persons sending samples of fertil-
i ;-iers for analysis is called to the following:
'. REGULATIONS GOVERNING THE TAKING AND
S. FORWARDING OF FERTILIZER SAMPLES TO
THE COMMISSIONER OF AGRICULTURE.
-SECTION 15 OF LAW.
Special samples of fertilizer sent in by purchasers,
Ai under Sece 9 of the law approved May 22, 1901. Shall
b' drawn in the presence of.two disinterested witnesses,
from one or more packages, thoroughly mixed and a
FAIR SAMPLE OF THE SAME OF NOT LESS THAN EIGHT OUNCES
(ONE-HALF POUND), SHALL BE PLACED IN A CAN OR BOTTLE',
SEALED AND SENT BY A DISINTERESTED PARTY TO THE COM-
MISSIONER OF AGRICULTURE AT TALLAHASSEE. NOT LESS
'-THAN EIGHT OUNCES, IN A TIN CAN OR BOTTLE, WILL BE AC-
.C PTED FOR ANALYSIS This rule is adopted to secure fair
.samples of sufficient size to make the six necessary de-
i terminations, viz: Moisture, available and insoluble
,..phosphpric acid, ammonia and potash; and to allow the
,..preservation of a duplicate sample in case of protest or
appeal. These duplicate samples will be preserved for
Stwo months from date of certificate of analysis.
:'.ei The State Chemist is not the proper officer to re-
S' eive special samples from the purchaser. The propriety
': -of the method of drawing and sending the samples as
.'' fixed by the-law is obvious.
The drawing and sending of special samples in rare
.cases is in compliance with law. Samples are frequently
s, sent in paper packages or paper boxes, 'badly packed,
id id frequently in very small quantity (less than ounce)
frequently thereareno marks, numbers or other means,
'. of identification. The post mark in some.instances be-
~ : ing absent.
I would call the attention of those who desire to
a': ,.avail themselves of this privilege to Sections 9 and 10 of
', the law, which are clear and explicit.
S COPIES OF THE FERTILIZER LAW.
S Citizens interested in the fertilizer law of the State,
.and desiring to avail themselves of its protection, can
:obtain a copy, free of charge by sending for sameto the
jCommissioner of Aetricpltury.

ine attention of consumers of cotton seed ieal, 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 pf avail-
able phosphoric acid, and li per cent. of potash. Such
meal is now selling at $26.50 .per ton at seaport. Its.
Commercial value is as follows:
8 per cent. ammonia @ $3.00 $24.0
2 per cent. available phosphate @ 1.00 2.00
li per cent. potash @ $1.10 - 1.65

S27.65
.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:
4 to 5 per cent. ammonia.
1* to 2 percent. phosphoric acid.
1l to 2 per cent. potash.
Their commercial value compared tp pure meal-is as
follows:
4 per cent. ammoma -- $18.50
I1 per cent. phosphoric acid .76
1i per cent. potash 1.65


Commercial value

These goods are sold at $1.00 to $2.00 pervton leas than

goods; on the contrary, a diirect.loss. This applies .w

i-CHEMICAL EQUIVALENTS.

S Under the law and the regulations of the department
S chemical equivalents of the thiee e3sential elements,.
Ammonia. -vailable Phbsphoric Acid, and Potash, are
S not allowed iu the gI:nrantee. A few instances lhaie been
noted, particularly in cotton seed meals, when the Aim-
amonia is guaranteed, and followed by a statement of the
Si protean contents:
As. Ammonia ........ ... ...............5 per cent.
SProtean ..... ...... ........ ...25.75 per cent.
Or, Ammonia ...... ............... ....8per cent.
P- rotean ...... ...... .............41.18' per cent.
S, 'Such a guarantee is misleading, as the terms "Ami L o-
n'ia" and "Protean," are equivalent, and only represent
.'th ti "Nitrogen'f (or ammonia) content of the goods.
.Multiplying the nitrogen by 1.21 gives the ammonia
h hs, 3 per cent. nitrogen X1.21 gives ammonia 3.63 per
ceent. or nitrogen 3 per cent. X6.25 gives "Protean" 18.75
iper cent.

UNIFORM FERTILIZER LAWS.

L he. Florida fertilizer law, is based on 'thereport of a
'. jojint committee of the "Association of American Agri-
S. cultural Colleges," and the "Association' of Offcial Ag-
ricultural Ohemnists," approved by the "United States
Agricultural Department;" with few changes to meet
l local conditions. 'It was complied by a committee of
S the ."Fliorida State Agricultural Society" with a view to'
protect the Florida farmer and the manufacturerr of
S' 'honest, commercial fertilizer, from the vendor of aidulter-
i.- atd and'inferior goods. h '.
SThat is has met the requirements, and has accomplished
S. 'the desired results, to a certain extent is evidenced ;by
'fthirehigher.class of, goods sold in the State; the large in-
c' rease in revenue, and the fact that complaints of inferior
or wdrthlese goods are of far less frequent occurrence '

FQBORULAS FOR VEGETABLE. ,

As vegetable growing for the early markets is one ,f '.,,
, their most important industries of' the State a few'aec-:..'
S cepted formulas, have been selected from those recom
S mended by various Experimental Stations, and' from-the', .
, experience of practical growers and maAufactuiers of
.standard commercial fertilizers. It is conceded that .
.ammonia (or nitrogen) is required in relatively: large -
quantitite for succulent crops, such as, cabbage, celery, .
lettuce, cucumbers, string beans, and for young fruit
trees, to induce growth. ..
That phosphoric acid, is reqiured for fiber production, ;
Snd to mature the woody parts .f plants. .
That potash is demanded by starch and sugar produce .
ing plants, potatoes, beets, sugar cane, peaches, oranges,'.
pineapples, etc., to mature their sugars and starches.' ,
The predominate element required for different classes ,sof
vegetables or plants, 'is other things being equal.
For foliage crops, cabbage, lettuce, spinage, etc., am-
mo nia. For woody plants, and for fiber phosphoric acid. '
For fruits, sugar and starch productions, potash.
We give here special formulas for trucking crops pr- .
' pared by State Chemist John M. McCandles, of Georgia, '."',
- together with,his remarks prefacing them.


SPECIAL FORMULAS FOR TRUCKING CROPS.


9 i .-"


"Those who raise early vegetables for market, or what; '
are known as trucking crops, require special formulas.
S The trucker must get his crop to market early, or be is '
.' likely to find no market for it. He therefore must, force :'
his crop -in every practicable way. One of the chief meh- .
ods of doing this is by the use of very rich or high grade
S.fertilizers used in very large quantities per acre, one '.'
: thousand and even as high as two thousand pounds per '*'-
: ere of the very highest grade fertilizer being often used. .
61 .'.Large quantities of 'nitrogen are required; and part bf
this nitrogen must be in the form of the very soluble ni-
trate .of soda, which dissolves in water as readily as o.u- Ar.
gar or salt. This valuable ingredinet of trucking' 'crops r '
S should not be mixed with acid phosphate, especially if'


i' ' *
" I * '
*
I' *'' '. ' \ .' !! -: '1"^ **' '





, : ". '. .,



the latter is damp, if the mixture is intended to0.sfa&d
S for any great length of time before use. There is a ten- ',
d.ncy for the acd phosphate to cause a decomposition of
the nitrate of soda with a resulting loss of nitrogen. As :'
to the amounts to be used pertacre the trucker must us-
his own judgment and experience with his 'soil, rememn-
S being that economy in this direction has not been found
to pay by those wishing an early market crop of vegeta-
S bles. It is rarely the case that les than five hundred
I.' pounds per acre will pay. The formulas given below have
.: been selected mainly from some of the trucking bulletins
Sof the North Carolina Agricultural Experiment Sta-
tions."
