 COMMERCIAL FERTILIZERS IN KENTUCKY, 1953 3
This bulletin contains analyses of commercial fertilizers made between July l
1 and December 31, 1953. Analyses of samples made between January 1, 1953 and
June 30, 1953 were published in Regulatory Bulletin 109. _
I TONNAGE OF FERTILIZER SOLD
Manufacturers reported that 563, 228 tons of commercial fertilizer were sold
in Kentucky during 1953, a decrease of 8.9 percent from 1952. The decrease was
partly due to the extreme drouth. No superphosphate was distributed in Kentucky
under the "Contractual Plan" by the Production and Marketing Administration during
this period.
The tonnage of commercial fertilizer sold during 1953, as reported by manu-
facturers, is given in tables 1, 2 and 3. Tonnage of sulfate of potash, by grades,
is given in table 4, and tonnage of fertilizers containing boron will be found in
table 5. Table 6, giving the average analysis of mixed fertilizers from 1940 to 1953
inclusive, shows that the amount of nutrients in mixed fertilizers increased by more
than 40 percent during that time.
PLANT FOODS OR NUTRIENTS
The minimum percentages of guaranteed plant foods, or nutrients, present in
commercial fertilizer are printed on the bag as nitrogen, available phosphoric acid,
and potash. These are the nutrients needed by plants in largest amounts and also
those in which the soil is most likely deficient. The element corresponding to phos-
phoric acid is phosphorus and the element corresponding to potash is potassium.
Boron may also be guaranteed.
FERTILIZER GRADE
Grade designates the minimum percentage of nitrogen, available phosphoric
acid, and potash in the fertilizer. A 5-10-15 grade means that the fertilizer contains `
5 percent nitrogen, l0 percent available phosphoric acid, and 15 percent potash. The
_ nutrients are always listed in this order. A 0-20-0 grade refers to a superphosphate
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
The Department of Agronomy of the Kentucky Agricultural Experiment Station
considers that nine 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 and corresponding higher analysis
grades recommended by the Agronomy Department for field crops are shown below:
Rati¤ Minimum Grade Higher Analysis Grades
0-1-1 0-12 12 0-14-14, 0-20-20, 0-24-24,
0-30 -30
0-1-2 0 -10 -20
0-2-1 0-14-7 0-16-8
1-1-1 B-8-8 10-10-10,12-12-12,14-1-1-14
1- 1 -3 6-6 - 18

 4 Regulatory Bulletin lll
Ratio Minimum Grade Higher Analysis Grades
1-2-2 5-l0-10 6-12-12, 8-16-16
1-2-3 5-10-15 6-12-18
1-3-2 4-12 8 6-18-12
1-4-4 3-12-12 4-16-16, 5-20-20
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 regardless 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 distribu-
ted more economically.
The Agronomy Department suggests grades in the following ratios for tobacco;
1-Z-3, 1-2-2, 1-1-3. The other ratios listed are for general field crops, meadows
and pastures.
More detailed suggestions for fertilizing field crops, using the above ratios and
grades, are contained in Circular 70 from this Station.
REFUNDS
When a sample of fertilizer is below the guaranteed analysis to such an extent
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 propor-
tionate refund be made to all purchasers of the stock of fertilizer whose names can be
obtained from the dealer. lf names of purchasers can not be obtained 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 a 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 information
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 re-
quires 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 container, mark the container with

 Commercial Fertilizers in Kentucky, 1953 5
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 analysis is materially below guaranty, a
representative of the Feed and Fertilizer Department may be sent to take an inspector‘s .
sample.
FERTILIZER GUARANTY
The statute regulating the sale of commercial fertilizers in Kentucky was
amended at the 1952 session of the Kentucky Legislature. In accord with the amend-
ment 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 Experiment 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 manufacturer
Guaranteed analysis showing:
Nitrogen, percent
Available phosphoric acid, percent
Potash, 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
fused tric..lc1um phosphate.
PENALITIES 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 fertilizer
law is subject to a fine of from $100.00 to $500. O0 for each offense, Furthermore,
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 $100.00 to $500. 00 for violating
the fertilizer law, but "shall be liable for reasonable damages sustained by the
purchaser of such fertilizer. "
lt 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 7, B, 9 AND l0
The standings of manufacturers as determined by the results of analysis of
official samples are given in Table 7. 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 7 refer to number
of samples and that the last 3 columns refer to number of analyses of nitrogen, phos-
phoric 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 within the tolerance of l/4 of l percent (the tolerance of the
Kentucky Fertilizer Law).
In some samples a deficiency in one nutrient is accompanied by an overrun in
another nutrient. This is evidence of improper mixing or weighing by the manufacturer.
Extreme variations of this kind cannot he attributed to separation of materials
(segregation) though this may be a minor factor. Excess of one nutrient cannot com-
pensate for deficiency of another nutrient. The purchaser is entitled to receive the
full guaranty in all nutrients as expressed by the manufacturer's guaranty.
The results of analyses of all inspection samples are given in Tables B, 9, and l0,
lf 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. 00 below the guaranty, the result is indicated in the tables by underlining the figures.
