Fertilize for Better Hay


You can use phosphate fertilizer profitably for alfafa and red clover on over two-thirds of Iowa cropland. Potash is profitable on an additional fifth of the land. Alfalfa and red clover hay from some Grade A land is now so low in phosphorus that you can't feed it safely unless you add phosphorus to the ration from some other source!
