ystems that will help solve the prob in It must not be says he author that Iowa soils are in ertile but they are losing fertility much more rapidly than is generally Tables that are pre ented show that In such a year as 912 the ten leading crops of the tate take out fertility worth considering only the three most Important plant foods phos jhorus nitrogen and potassium The otal fertility taken out exceeds A hundred bushel Top of corn takes fertility out of erty he soil that is worth an acre bumper 50 bushel crop of wheat vitt take out plant food worth per acre Tho nitrogen taken out of the soil nnually Is the most Important tern because its value is about That is why the Crowing of legumes like clover and alfalfa are so important to agrlcul ure They take nitrogen from the air and put it into the soil through the small nodules that grow on their oots When legumes are turned un der for green manures the supply of nitrogen in Iowa soil may be main ained indefinitely Tho other two important elements hosphorus and potassium are taken out in amounts of about 000 each annually Much of this is returned every year through nures when they are properly taken care of and through corn stalks and ibblo that are plowed under but even then there Is a large net loss Vtr Brown says that generally the phosphorus content is low in Iowa soils and sooner or later will have 0 he supplied as for potassium the supply seems to be larger If corn wore grown continuously on the best of the estate and the corn stalks plowed under each year but no ma nures or other fertilizer added tho phosphorus supply In that soil Mr Brown estimates would last about 90 years That Indicates ho says the importance of proper manuring and rotations The survey disclosed that very generally Iowa soils need lime to keep them in good condition for crop production It has been commonly supposed that the lime In tho soil would last for many years to come but H leaches out rapidly and Is al so removed In other ways As lime goes out the soil becomes sour and most crops suffer some like alfalfa very seriously Tho situation demands tho best thought of Iowa farmers but Mr Urown makes this encouraging
