Abstract/Contents:"The members of the staffs of the Agricultural Experiment Stations of Michigan, Ohio, and Indiana, have come to a "gentlemen's agreement" with fertilizer manufacturers in those states to recommend a 10-6-4 grade of fertilizer for general turf purposes. The practical result of this agreement has been that 10-6-4 has been placed on the regular price list of standard fertilizers and is now available on the market in these states at a price at present in the neighborhood of $32,000 a ton. Formerly in these states it was sold as a special grade for golf course purposes at two to three times the price at which it is now available. Moreover, the consumer is no longer confused by getting recommendations for a different grade from each source of information he reaches."
