ALSO, Dissolved Bone Manure Concentrated Manure Superphosphate Soluble Guano THF, Corn Manures are designed especially for the production of fine quality combined with large yield, in which respect they excel other well known fertilisers (see pamphlet, page8 2 and 3), and samples of corn grown with these Manures have fetched the nighest market prices in past seasons. The Root Manures are designed, not only to give the young plants a good start, but to support them through every stage of their growth. Attention is drawn to these points as some Manures are only partial in their action, and, though forcing at first, fail to bring the crops to perfection. Worhs-Ipswich & Bramford.
