Farmers should correct the pH, or acidity, level of their soil to gain optimum results from fe,rtllizer materials, Mr. Wise said. Soil test results, along with guidance from the County Extension Agent or thei.r sup- plier, will indicate the correc- tive application needed to ad- just the pH level. Farmers should also make maximum use of manure and crop residue. Wise said Wise noted that a primary factor responsible for tight fer- tilizer supplies is expanded crop production planned for 1974 in response to growing domestic and export requirements for farm commodities.
