Clark, a participant in the recent World Food Conference said it has been estimated thai as much as 15 percent of the fertilizer used in the United States is for non-farm purposes and the bulk of that is for or- namental use. That total is about 4 percent of the world fer- tilizer use, he said. If utilized efficiently, this fertilizer could result in almost enough additional production to eliminate this year's 10-million ;on grain Clark said in a statement issued here. "If a substantial portion of this fer- tilizer can be diverted to agri culture, it could result in a sig- nificant increase in world food production in the coming year."
