 .C OMMERCIAL FERTILIZERS IN KENTUCKY, 1952
This bulletin contains analyses of official samples of commercial fertilizers
1¤d€ b€tW€€¤ July 1 and December 31, 1952. Analyses of samples made between
A Januar__y 1, 1952 and June 30, 1952 were published in Regulatory Bulletin 101.
Manufacturers reported that 618, 332 tons of commercial fertilizer were sold
in Kentucky in 1952. This was an increase of about 9. 6 percent over the tonnage
reported for 1951. In addition, 2, 040 tons of 20-percent superphosphate were
distributed in Kentucky under the "Contractual Plan" by the Production and Marketing
Administration, Field Service Branch.

 , Commercial Fertilizers ln Kentucky, 1952
PLANT FOODS OR NUTRIENTS
The minirnurn percentages of guaranteed plant foods, or nutrients, present
in commercial fertilizer are printed on the bag as nitrogen, available phosphoric
acid, and potash. T1-ESE are the nutrients needed by plants in largest amounts and
also Lnose in whicn ltne soil is most likely to be deficient. The element corresponding
. to phosphoric acid is phosphorus and thezelerrlent corresponding to potash is
po:assium. Boron may also be guaranteed.
FERTILIZER GRADE
Grade designates the minimum percentage of nitrogen, available phosphoric
acid, and potash in the fertilizer. A 4-16-8 grade means that the fertilizer con-
tains 4 percent nitrogen, 16 percent available ph0sphoric acid, and 8 percent
potash. The nutrients are always listed in this order. A O-20-O grade refers to
a superphosphatr fertilizer containing 20 percent available phosphoric acid. A
0-0-60 grade refers to a potash fertilizer containing 60 percent potash.
NUMBER OF GRADES NEEDED IN KENTUCKY
V The Departments of Agronomy and Horticulture of the Kentucky Agricultural
Experiment Station consider that eleven ra.ios and mimimum 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 shownbelow:
Ratio Minimum grade Ratio Minimum grade
0-1-2 0-10-20 1-3-2 4-12-8
0-l-1 0-12-12 1-2-2 5-10-10
. 0-2-1 O-14-7 1-1-1 8-8-8
1-4-4 3-12-12 " 1-2-3 4-8-12
l--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 CHD be mixed and dis-
tributed more economically.
The Agronomy Department suggests the following cropping uses of the rec-
ommerded minimum grades:
For general field crops, meadows and pastures, 4-12-8, 4-16-8, 8-8-8,
, 3-12-12, 0-14-7, 0-12-12 and 0-10-20.

 · Regulatory Bulletin N0. 104
COMMERCIAL FERTILIZERS HV KENTUCKY, 1952
For tobacco 8-8-8, 5-10-l0, 4-8,12.
It is further recommended that in fertilizers for` tobacco three-fourths of
the potash be from sulfate and not over one-fourth 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. 00 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 allpurchasers of the stock of fertilizer whose
names can be obtained from the dealer. lf names of purchasers can not be ob-
tained the refund may be made to charity in the county where the fertilizer
was sold.
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. lf there are less than 10 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 Departmentof 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 reasoq or wanting analysis. lf analysis is materially below
guaranty, a representative of the Feed and Fertilizer Department may be sent
to take an inspect0r's sample.

FERTILIZER GUARANTY
` The statute regulating the sale of commercial fertilizers in Kentucky was
amended at the last session of the Kentucky Legislature. In accord with the
amendrnent to the statute, the official tag formerly issued by this department to
be attached to each bag of fertilizer is no longer required.
Before a manufacturer can sell fertilizer in Kentucky, he must register
each brand or grade he proposes to sell with the Kentucky Agricultural Experirnent
Station in a manner prescribed by the Director. This registration is the guaranty
of the manufacturer. This information must be printed on each bag of fertilizer.
offered for sale in Kentucky or on a label attached to each bag supplied by the
manufacturer. The information is as follows:
Brand name of fertilizer
Name and address of manfactnrer
Guaranteed analysis showig:
Nitrogen, percent
Available phosphoric acid, percent
Poiash, from muriate or sulfate, percent
Total phosphoric acid is guaranteed in bone, dried manures and basic slag.
Both total and available phosphoric acid are guaranteed in rock phosphate and in
‘used tricalcium phosphate,
PENALTIES FOR VIOLATING THE FERTILIZER LAW
Any manufacturer, firm, dealer, or vendor who sells or exposes for sale
` ·» Kentucky commercial fertilizerwithnut complying with the provisions mf the
fertilizer law is subject to a fine mmf frmu $100- 00 to $500.00 for each offense.
Furthermore, if a fertilizer iis short iin net weight or short in theessential plant-
food vnutrieuus, a manufacturer, firm ur dealer may not only be fined $100. 00 to
$500. 00 for violating the fertilizer law, but " shall be,liable for reasonable
damages sustained by the purchaser uf such fertilier, "
lit is imP07mm&mcK€mrewa&mE dealer should protect hirnself by purchasing
from reliable firms whu cunuply with the law. Otherwise, he will lay himself I

 Regulatory Bulletin N0. 104
EXPLANATION OF TABLES 3,, 4, 5 AND 6
The standing5 of manufacturers as determined by the results of analysis of ,
official samples are given in Table 3. Purchasers of fertilizer can learn through
a study of this table, how well any manufacturer met his guarantee on t.ie samples
analyzed.
It should benoted that the first 3 columns of figures in Table 3 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
guaranty in all respects, and to column 6, which gives the percentage of analyses
which are equal to guarantee or with iu'the tolerance of l/4 of l percent(the -
tolerence of the Kentucky Fertilizer Law).
In some samples a deficiency in one nutrient is accompanied by an over—
run in another nutrien . 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 minorfactor. 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 manufacture1·'s guaranty.
The results of analyses of all inspection samples are given in Tables 4, 5
and 6. If an analysis shows a def’·· iency of more than one -fourth of l percent
below the amount claimed for nitr jeu, phosphoric acid, or potash, or if the
relative value is more than $1. 00 below the guaranty, the 1‘€5\1ll9 is indicated
in the tables by underlining the figures.
