Acquaintance With Terms








The hesitation of many users of commercial
fertilizer to master the few technical terms used in analyses of the

fertilizer is small, and something of their characteristics should be

materials--their sources, the percentage of plant-food carried by them,
and their probable availability. He should know in a general way their
advantages and disadvantages in comparison with each other.
