 l COMMERCIAL FERTILIZERS IN KENTUCKY, 1951
This bulletin contains analyses of official samples of commercial fertilizers made I
between July 1 and December 31, 1951. Analyses of samples made between January 1,
1951 and June 30, 1951 were published in Regulatory Bulletin 93.
, Manufacturers reported that 564, 204 tons of commercial fertilizer were sold in Ken-
tucky in 1951. This was an increase of about 1. 8 percent over the tonnage reported for
1950. In addition, 5, 320 tons of 20-percent superphosphate, or equivalent, were dis-
tributed in Kentucky under the "Contractual Plan" by the Production and Marketing Ad-
ministration, Field Service Branch.
SALES BY GRADE, 1951

PLANT FOODS OR NUTRIENTS
lim minimum percentages of guaranteed plant foods, or nutrients, present
~ `»·, ;y;· rz ial fertilizer are printed on the state tag as nitrogen, available phos-
yl · ·< iri, and potash. These are the nutrients needed by plants in largest
~. ·iizi·.¢ ,iiI1llZ\1§~.tr1 those in which the soil is most likely Lo be deficient. The ele-
.· nl, 1oz·r<·spon¤ling to phosphoric acid is pliospliorus and the elenient corres-
_·1n·liug to potash is potassium. Boron may also be guaranteed.
FERTILIZER GRADE
(irnrle designates the minimiim percentage of nitrogen, available phosphoric
an irl, and potash in the fertilizer. A 4-16-8 grade uqeans that the fertilizer CO1`i‘
tains —l percent nitrogen, 16 percent available phosphoric acid, and 8 percent
[:l)1,Z1S11. The nutrients are always listed in this order. A 0-20-0 grade refers to
it sup··1·pliosphate fertilizer containing 20 percent available phosphoric acid. A
0+1-60 grade refers to a potash fertilizer containing 60 percent potash.
NUMBER OF GRADES NEEDED IN KENTUCKY
_ The Departments of Agronomy and Horticulture of the Kentucky Agricultural
lsxpc-rimcnt Station consider that eleven ratios and minimum grades of mixed
fertilizer, together with superphosphate, nitrogen, and potash salts will answer
the- present needs of Kentucky agriculture.
A list of the nine ratios and minimum grades recommended by the Agronomy
Department for field crops is shown below:
Ratio Minimum grade Ratio Miiiimum grade
0-1-2 0-10-20 1-3-2 4-12-8
O-1-1 O-12-12 1-2-2 5-10-10
O-2-1 0-14-7 1-1-1 8-8-8
1-4-4 3-12-12 1-2-3 4-8-12
1-4-2 4-16-8
Two additional grades, recommended by the Horticultural Department for
truck crops and ornamental plants, are 5-10-5 and 10-6-4.
Higher grades of any ratio also are both recommended and encouraged.
None of the recommended minimum grades of mixed fertilizer contain less than
20 units of plant food. Low grade fertilizers are less economical because costs
Of mixing, bags, freight and other incidental costs are the same per bag regard-
less of analysis.
There also is a distinct advantage to the manufacturer to hold the number of
grades to a minimum, since a smaller number of grades can be mixed and dis-
tributed more economically.
The Agronomy Department suggests the following cropping uses of the rec-
ommended minimum grades:
For general field crops, meadows and pastures, 4-12-8, 4-16-8, 8-8-8,
3-12-12, O-14-7, 0-12-12 and O-10-20.
4

 COMMERCIAL FERTILIZERS IN KENTUCKY, 1951
  For tobacco 8-8-8, 5-10-10, 4-8-12.
It is further recommended that in fertilizers for tobacco three—fourths of
the potash be from sulfate and not over one -fou1·th from muriate.
More detailed suggestions for fertilizing field crops, using the above ratios
and minimum grades, are contained in the new Circular 70 from this Station.
REFUNDS
When a sample of fertilizer is below the guaranteed analysis to such an ex-
tent that the relative value index is deficient by more than $1. O0 per ton, the
manufacturer of the fertilizer and the dealer from whom the sample was obtained
are given a special notice.
When such a deficiency occurs it is suggested to the manufacturer that a
proportionate refund be made to all purchasers of the stock of fertilizer whose
names can be obtained from the dealer. If names of purchasers can not be ob-
tained the refund may be made to a charity in the county where the fertilizer
was sold.
I Refunds are also suggested on potash results when the guarantee is from
sulfate and there is an excess of muriate present of more than $1. 00 a ton in
relative value.
FARMERS' SAMPLES
` Anyone in Kentucky who buys commercial fertilizer for his own use may
submit samples for free analysis to the Department of Feed and Fertilizer,
Agricultural Experiment Station, Lexington 29, Kentucky.
, 1. Samples taken according to provisions of K. R.S. No. 250. 360 through
No. 250. 480 (Kentucky Fertilizer Law). - To make the sample official it should
be taken according to Section No. 250. 440 of the statute referred to above. This
section of the statute requires that witnesses be present when the sample is taken.
Copies of the statute may be obtained from the Department of Feed and Fertilizer. _
2. Unofficial samples. - If an analysis is wanted for the purchaser‘s in-
' formation only, samples of fertilizer may be taken in the following manner:
Take portions (each about a handful) from 10 percent of the bags, unless
this requires portions from more than 20 bags. If there are less than l0 bags,
sample all. Take samples from as far down in the bags as possible. Place all
portions on a clean paper and mix well. Place about one quart in a tight contain-
er, include a tag from one of the bags, mark the container with name and address
of the sender and send to the Department of Feed and Fertilizer, Agricultural
Experiment Station, University of Kentucky, Lexington 29, Kentucky.
State in a letter the amount of fertilizer on hand, the number of bags
sampled, and the reason for wanting analysis. If analysisis materially below
guaranty, a representative of the Feed and Fertilizer Department may be setnt
to take an inspector‘s sample.

 REGULATORY BULLETIN NO. 96 "
INFORMATION ON GUARANTY TAG
A state guaranty tag issued by the Kentucky Agricultural Experiment Station,
showing the manufacturer's guaranty, must be attached to each bag of fertilizer
before it can be lawfully offered for sale in Kentucky. It is a violation of the law
to change the tag in any manner, either by addition or erasure. Purchasers of
fertilizer should be guided by the information printed on the guaranty tag in se-
lecting a fertilizer. If the fertilizer is not tagged with a state guaranty tag, or
if the tag has been changed in any manner, it should be reported to the Agricul-
tural Experiment Station immediately. The following information is printed on
the guaranty tag:
Brand name of fertilizer
Name and address of manufacturer
Guaranteed analysis showing:
Minimum nitrogen percent
Minimum available phosphoric acid, percent
Minimum potash, from muriate or sulfate, percent
Estimated value per 100 pounds
Total phosphoric acid, in place of available phosphoric acid, is guaranteed
in bone, dried manures, basic slag, and rock phosphate. Official fertilizer la-
bels are required by law to carry the estimated value index per lO0 pounds. The
estimated value index is used for comparing values of fertilizers of different
grades. An additional use of this value is in determining the relationship of the
guaranteed analysis and the actual analysis. This relationship is shown in the
last two columns of Tables 3, 4, and 5.
The estimated value index should not be confused with the selling price.
Selling price is determined by those offering the fertilizer for sale.
PENALTIES FOR VIOLATING THE FERTILIZER LAW
Any manufacturer, firm, dealer, or vendor who sells or exposes for sale in
Kentucky commercial fertilizer without complying with the provisions of the ferti-
lizer law is subject to a fine of from $100. O0 to $500. OO for each offense. Further-
more, if a fertilizer is short in net weight or short in the essential plant-food
nutrients, a manufacturer, firm or dealer may not only be fined $100. OO to $500. OO
for violating the fertilizer law, but "shall be liable for reasonable damages sus-
tained by the purchaser of such fertilizer."
It is important therefore that the dealer should protect himself by purchasing
from reliable firms who comply with the law. Otherwise, he will lay himself
liable for selling fertilizers in violation of the law.
EXPLANATION OF TABLES Z, 3, 4 and 5
The standings of manufacturers as determined by the results of analysis of
official samples are given in Table 2. Purchasers of fertilizer can learn through
a study of this table, how well any manufacturer met his guarantee on the samples
analyzed.
lt should be noted that the first 3 columns of figures in Table Z refer to num-
ber of samples and that the last 3 columns refer to number of analyses of nitrogen
phosphoric acid and potash. Attention is directed to the third column of figures
which gives for each manufacturer the percentage of samples which are equal to _ i
guaranty in all respects, and to column 6, which gives the percentage of analyses l
which are equal to guarantee or with in the tolerance of l/4 of l percent (the
6

 COMMERCIAL FERTILIZERS IN KENTUCKY, 1951
tolerance of the Kentucky Fertilizer Law).
In some samples a deficiency in one nutrient is accompanied by an over-
· run in another nutrient. This is evidence of improper mixing or weighing by
the manufacturer. Extreme variations of this kind cannot be attributed to
separation of materials (segregation), though this may be a minor factor. Ex-
cess of one nutrient cannot compensate for deficienty of another nutrient. The
purchaser is entitled to receive the full guaranty in all nutrients as expressed
by the manufacturer on the tag.
The results of analyses of all inspection samples are given in Tables 3, 4
and 5. If an analysis shows a deficiency of more than one -fourth of l percent
below the amount claimed for nitrogen, phosphoric acid, or potash, or if the
relative value is more than $1. OO below the guaranty, the result is indicated in
the tables by underlining the figures.
