Abstract/Contents:"Although there will be slightly more fertilizer overall for the growing season of 1947, the increase will be in the form of superphosphate and potash. There will not be quite so much nitrogen as we had last year. It has been necessary for this country to furnish nitrogen compounds to other nations under the international allocation of fertilizers by the United Nations. This has reduced the apparent domestic supply to about 1% less than we had last year and to about 3% less than was estimated in July. Government nitrogen plants closed at the end of the war, are being reactivated and will produce nitrogen compounds for shipment to occupied and devastated countries. It is believed that the entire situation will be somewhat easier after July 1, 1947, but such materials as sodium nitrate, ammonium sulphate, ammonium nitrate, and high nitrogen mixed fertilizers, will be in very short supply for the next 6 months at least and will be in even greater demand for the production of food crops than last year."
Note:"This pertinent information was prepared for TIMELY TURF TOPICS by Mr. F. S. Lodge of the National Fertilizer Association."
