Veterinary Viewpoint Plant fertilizer key to successful management By CARL F. ENGLERTH District Conservationist This is a good time to evaluate your planLs fertilizer needs for the next growing season. Fertilizers, used correctly, and in association with other management practices, can be the key to a successful conservation program. The fertilizer needs must be met in relation to the expected crop yield. The problem of maintaining adequate supplies of nutrient elements in the soil of humid regions becomes more evident as the years go by. Virgin fertility has largely been exhaused. The farmer who is progressive is no longer satisfied with yields which Nature, unaided, can provide. The present concern is primarily with such plant food elements as nitrogen, phosphorous, and potassium. In Comal County nitrogen and phosphate is the main concern. As soils become older agriculturally and the yields are steeped up by growing improved hybrids and disease-resistant varieties, by using improved tillage practices and by applying more fertilizer, trace element deficienceies develop. If soil fertility has been depleted due to erosion, leaching or past crop production this problem is an important one and should be adequately considered in developing a soil, water, and plant conservation plan. The fertility problem should be approached objectively. It should be comsidered along with other conservation alternatives such as kind and sequence of crops in a Conservation Cropping System, species to be used in pasture planting, the need for grassed waterways, terraces, etc., and the management of the system. Crops aer fertilized to supply the nutrients that are not present in sufficient quantities in the soil. The purpose of an adequate fertilization program should be to supply year in and year out the amounts of fertilizer that will result in sustained yields and net returns. This means the most efficient use of fertilizer and other imputs. This does not necessarily mean that it would be considered logical to add to a soil all the fertilizer at one time or in one year to bring the fertility up to its original level. There is a difference between the maintenance of a fertility level and building fertility up to a maintenance level. This building-up process and cost may be distributed over a period of years. The physical condition of the soil, which a factor in governing soil mositure relationships and how efficiently moisture is stored and used, is also an item to consider. They may be a factor to consider in deternuning the beginning level of the fertility program As crop yields are increased, residues are increased. As residues are increased and properly managed, soil improvement • physical, biological and chemical (fertility) is attained. Fertilizer may be the key to the production of adequate residues for adequate soil improvement or maintenance. It takes 3,600 pounds of plant residue from each crop to maintain the same level of organic matter in the soil each year. Soil organic matter has been the builder agent that has compensated to some degree for improper soil management in the past On unfertilized soils, 95 percent of the nitrogen and 50 percent of the phosphorus absorbed by plants conies from the breakdown of soil organic matter. Since some producers removed all the grain sorphym residue by bailing it for feed last year, you amy need more fertilizer this year than in the past. This agronomic principle has practical application in determining fertilizer needs for a newly planted and managed pasture as well. Some (rf you may have experienced the ability of improved grass to establish themselves more readily on land which was recently very dense in brush and lias been dozed just prior to planting. In effect his area lias natural or virgin fertility due to past years accumulation of soil organic matter and no soil erosion. However, on the same farm and in an adjacent field which has been in field crops for many years the improved grass did not do well at all. The soil ogranic matter was extremely low and tile fertility level which was added was not enough to provide the necessary elements for a successful stand. This is a common occurence iii Comal County. Soil s in dense vegetated areas may also be low in fertility especially where soil erosion has occurred. The same principle also takes place during a drought period when little rainfall is received. Deaths Baby Means Veltmann Services for Baby Means Veltmann, 92, will be held at ll a m.

Francisco Vasquez Funeral services for Francisco Vasquez, 81, of Cats enjoy regular brushing As the weather gets warmer, your cat will shed some of his winter coat. You can keep this cat hair off you and your furniture by brushing the cat thoroughly once or twice a week As you will no doubt discover, your cat will enjoy being brushed and look forward to these sessions. Brushing is also important to the health of the animal An unbrushed cat will swallow all that loose flair when he cleans himself. Hair balls can then form in his stomach and these may cause vomiting or constipation. Your veterinarian can provide medicine to solve this problem, but ifs better to avoid it with a few minutes of brushing each week. A teaspoon of mineral oil once a week may also help in preventing hail balls. The type of cat you have determines the sort of brush you should use. A wire brush is recommended for longhaired cats and a rubber brush for short-haired cats. Claws can cause problems A cat’s claws can get quite sharp and can cause damage to furniture, curtains and clothing, as well as the skin Outside cats generals wear down the ragged edges of their claws on trees, posts or other structures of thise type Inside cats, on the other hand, will need a scratching post to keep their claws worn. Otherwise, your drapes, furniture and doors are going to be at risk. Some cats tend to play a little rough with other cats and with people, possibly causing scratches which can be very painful. These problems can be lessened by trimiiung you cat’s claws on at least a monthly basis. An effective alternative is to have the claws on the front feet surgically removed Both indoor and outdoor cats adapt well to this, even retaining the ability to climb and hunt As it also saves the household furnishings, this procedure has kept many an indoor cats from becoming permanently an • outsider.” These message are a public service of the Comal County Veterinary Medical Association AMERICAN (CANCER iSOaETYMThe nation Teeth-chattenng subzero temperatures chilled areas today from the Northern Rockies to the Midwest as a storm system spread snow from the Ohio valley into New England.
