SPENCER HELPS BOOST USE OF FERTILIZER
Spencer county farmers helped boost Kentucky’s total fertilizer use in 1953 to 563,228 tons, reports the Middle West Soil Improvement Committee. The statement is based on compilations by the University of Kentucky’s Department of Feed and Fertilizer.
The use of fertilizer on Kentucky farms has increased nearly sevenfold since 1940, according to the committee.
