LIME PAYS REAL DIVIDEND
Experiments conducted at the
Beaumont Experiment Station for
a nine year period proved that the
use of fertilizers and lime on pas-
tures greatly increased both the
quantity and quality of the forage
In these experiments, fertilizers
were applied to pastures consist-
ing mostly of carpet grass, white
clover and lespedeza. Superphos-
phate was found to be more effec- (
tive than any one fertilizer alone.
Phosphate alone increased the for-
age from 1725 to 3100 pounds per
acre. Lime alone increased the
forage yield from 1725 to 2250
pounds per acre, and Lime and
Phosphate produced 3505 pounds
per acre. This was air-dry forage.
The largest increase in yield
was received on a limed pasture
on which a complete fertilizer had
been applied. This yielded 4120
pounds of forage per acre which
is equivalent to 700 pounds of
43% cottonseed meal.
With the assistance you can re-
ceive from the PMA 6-12-6 fertil-
izer will cost you $1.49 per hun-
dred, and cottonseed cake last fall
sold for $4.25 per sack. Therefore
you can apply 500 pounds of 6-12-6
on your pasture at a cost of $7.45
and receive the same amount of
feed you would get in 700 pounds
of 43% cottonseed cake. The cake
would have cost you $29.75 which
gives you a saving of $22.30 on
feed in addition to the increased
gain received on your cattle.
