Fr;day, March 30, 1973 The Woodville Republican, Woodville, Miss;ss;ppl Page Early April is an excellent time to fertilize pexmanent pas- tures of ba,hiagrass and ber- mudagrass. Where soil test recommenda- 't]:ns are available these should be l'o]lowcd. In all fertilizer pro- 'grams the application of lime to gras pastures with a pH of 5.6 or below should be the first fertilizer practice. On acid soils lime is the key needed to make the other fertilizer nutrient,s perform satisfactorily to pro- duce high forage yields. However. where pastures have not been soil tested a complete fert':lizer ]s usually desirable. The application rate per acre Will generally be determined by .the amount of forage needed and the management to be an- Plied. An average fertilization rate for ea.rly April is 60-70 lbs. each of available nitr..ogen, phos- Phate and potash; 500 pounds of 13-13-13 or 275 lbs. of 8-24-24 Plus 125 lbs. ammonium nitrate Per acre will provide approxi- mately these amounts. By fer- tilizing in early April. the sum- mer grasses are beginning to grow and will get the benefit of the nutrients. Earlier fer- tilizer applications often stim- ulates spring weeds and wild grasse like little barley (wild bar.ley that robs some of he fertilizer before tile summer grasses start growing. To justify the cost of fer- ,tilizing pastures, the forage pro- duced must be utilized ,by live- Stock or stored for winte feed. If you are stscking a cow and her calf on two acres of open grazable acres, you must have a good uoil fertility program o Produce the forage needed. In Mississippi our ave.,rage stocking rate is about three acres per cow unit. Reason,able fertiliza- tion and managemen.t can cer- tainly reduce this stocking rate to two or less open gr.azable acres per cow unit. To keep our summe,r grasses growing a topdressing of around 60 lbs. (2.00 tbs. ammonium ni- trate) of nitrogen is desirable In June This topdressing will allow u to build some grass re- serve for late summer or hr- vest this surplus grass as hay. The first growth from bahia and bermud, a i.s the hlgLhest quality produced d,ring the growing season s amy surplus grass that accumulates in late ,:May or June should be h,ar- Vested as hay. Hay that is pro- dced in the early summer is USually higher quali.ty hay han late summer h, ay. Where ryegrass was overaeeded :n bahia or bermuda sod pas- tures, these areas must be heav- ily stocked and grazed to the round by early May. If the ryegrass is allowed to grow up, it will dastically reduce the early production from bahia a:nd bc.rmuda. If some overseede'2 ryegrass must be harvested fo hay, plan to take thi off no later than early May. To produce profits %rom your paures, you must FERTILIZE wisely and manage to UTILIZE efficiently the forage produced. LOSS MAY BE DEDUCTIBLE Damage or loss of farm build- ings, eqmpment and fences from the recent flood may be deduc.t- ible on your Federal income ax return, farmers are advised by Dr. Rupert Johnston, leader n agricultu:ral ecnom'lcs of the Cooperative Extension Service, Mississippi State University. But you must be able to prove that you actually ustained a casualty loss and the .amoun of the loss ,that is deductible. First, you must be able to identify or list the items in- volved and be able to pr, ove, if nece.sary, that you did own them. Second. you must have some record of your cost basis as ad,justed for determining the amount of the los,s. The ad,justed cost basis for your building would be the original cost plus any major remodeling less any d.areclLation all, owed or allow- able over its life to the date of loss, also less any insurance .re- ceived as a result of the loss from the flood. Fences and equipment includ- ing trucks or cars sed in your business are also items eligible for tax losses in he same man- ner as busines buildings. As a taxpayer suffering a loss, you must be able o show the ad- justed cost basis m your fences and each item of equipment in order to determine the amount of taxable lo,ss. For example, :ou built a fence on your farm or atround yo.ur business .property .at a cost of $5,09 ten years ,ago. Your orig- inal co.t basis ,was $5,000. You set it up on a 20-year straigh,t line depreciation basis. During the ten years you have made no major repairs. Half of the es- .tlmated life of the fence is gone, so half of'the va,lue h,as depre- ciated. In other words, you have $2.500 adju.s.ted cost basis. So if the fence completely de- or fall harvested stroyed, you incurred a tax de- i ductible loss of $2,500. Mow & Tow. ......... . , , r .... SAVINGS LIKE THESE!
