PREFACE 

Volume III, Special Reports, comprises a group of special compilations and summaries 
of data from the 1954 Census of Agriculture and related surveys. The purpose of Part 10, 
"Use of Fertilizer and Lime" is to present in one publication most of the detailed data 
compiled for the 1954 Census of Agriculture regarding the use of fertilizer and lime. The 
report presents data for counties. State economic areas, and generalized type-of- farming 
areas regarding the quantity used, acreage on which used, and expenditures for fertilizer 
and lime. 

This report has been prepared cooperatively by the Bureau of the Census of the U. S. 
Department of Commerce and the Agricultural Research Service of the U. S. Department 
of Agriculture. This cooperative report was prepared under the direction of Ray Hurley, 
Chief of the Agriculture Division of the Bureau of the Census. The report was outlined 
and the text was written by Donald B. Ibach, Agricultural Economist, and by J. Richards 
Adams, Senior Chemist, Agricultural Research Service of the U. S. Department of Agri- 
culture. Gladys L. Eagle, Lois Miller, and Julia H. Moring of the Bureau of the Census 
aided in the preparation of the report.

Volume III. — Special Reports 
Part 1. — Multiple-unit Operations. This report will be similar to 
Part 2 of Volume V of the reports for the 1950 Census of 
Agriculture. It will pre.sent statistics for approximately 900 
counties and State economic ai'eas in 12 Southern States and 
Missouri for the number and characteristics of multiple-unit 
operations and farms in multiple units. 

Part 2. — Banking Agricultural Counties. This special report will 
present statistics for selected items of inventory and agricul- 
tural production for the leading counties in the United States. 

Part 3. — Alaska, Hawaii, Puerto Rico, District of Columbia, and 
V. S. Possessions. These areas were not included in the 19.54 
Census of Agriculture. The available current data from vari- 
ous Government sources will be compiled and published in 
this report. 

Part 4. — Agriculture, 1954, a Graphic Summary. This report will 
present graphically some of the significant facts regarding 
agriculture and agricultural pnHluction as revealed by the 1954 
Census of Agriculture. 

Part 5. — Farm-mortgage Debt. This will be a cooiierative study 
by the Agricultural Research Sciviee of the U. S. Department 
of Agriculture and the Bureau of the Census. It will present, 
by States, data based on the 19.54 Census of Agriculture and a 
special mail survey to be conducted in January 1956, on the 
number of mortgaged farms, the amount of mortgage debt, and 
the amount of debt held by principal lending agencies. 



Part 6. — Irrigation in Humid Areas. This cooperative report by 
the Agricultural Research Service of the U. S. Department of 
Agriculture and the Bureau of the Census will present data ob- 
tained by a mail survey of operators of irrigated farms in 28 
States on the source of water, method of applying water, num- 
ber of pumps used, acres of crops Irrigated in 1954 and 1955, 
the number of times each crop was irrigated, and the cost of 
irrigation equipment and the irrigation system. 

Part 7. — Popular Report of the 1954 Census of Agriculture. This 
report is planned to be a general, easy-to-read publication for 
the general public on the status and broad characteristics of 
United States agriculture. It will seek to delineate such as- 
pects of agriculture as the geographic distribution and dif- 
ferences by size of farm for such items as farm acreage, 
principal crop.s, and iniix)rtant kinds of livestock, farm facili- 
ties, farm equipment, use of fertilizer, soil conservation prac- 
tices, farm tenure, and farm income. 

Part 8. — Size of Operation by Type of Farm. This will be a coop- 
erative special rejKUt to be prepared in cooperation with the 
Agricultural Re.'search Service of the U. S. Department of Agri- 
culture. This report will contain data for 119 economic sub- 
regions, (essentially general type-of- farming areas) showing the 
general characteristics for each type of farm by economic class. 
It will provide data for a current analysis of the differences 
that exist among groups of farms of the same type. It will 
furnish statistical basis for a realistic examination of produc- 
tion of such commodities as wheat, cotton, and dairy products 
in connection with actual or proposed governmental policies 
and programs.

INTRODUCTION 



The purpose of this report is to present in one publication 
most of the detailed data compiled for the 1954 Census of Ag- 
riculture, on the use of fertilizer and lime. The increased 
use of fertilizer has been one of the striking developments on 
our farms during the last few decades. The increased use of 
fertilizer plus the increased use of insecticides and chemicals 
to control plant insects and diseases, the use of improved 
varieties of crops, the more timely and economical perform- 
ance of farm operations because of greater farm mechanization 
and better farm management, and the increased use of irrigation 
have resulted in an increase of one-fifth in crop production per 
acre during the last 15 years. 

The Censuses of Agriculture since 1879 have obtained some 
information on the use of fertilizer and lime. The kinds of 
data obtained at each Census were as follows: 

1879— expenditures for fertilizer. 

1889— expenditures for fertilizer. 

1899— expenditures for fertilizer. 

1909— expenditures for fertilizer and manure. 

1919— expenditures for fertilizer and manure. 

1924— expenditures for fertilizer, manure, and lime. 

1929 — expenditures for fertilizer, manure, and lime; tons of 
commercial fertilizer purchased. 

1939— expenditures for commercial fertilizer and for lime, sep- 
arately; quantity of commercial fertilizer purchased; 
and tons of liming materials purchased. 

1944— expenditures for commercial fertilizer and for lime, 
separately. 

1954— expenditures for commercial fertilizer and for lime, 
separately; quantity and acres on which used for fer- 
tilizer and lime, separately; and for fertilizer, the acres 
fertilized and amount of fertilizer used for selected 
crops or groups of crops. 



DEFINITIONS AND EXPLANATIONS 

The definitions and explanations presented here are limited 
to those necessary for understanding the data presented in the 
statistical tables. More detailed and complete definitions will 
be found in the Introduction to Volume II of the reports of the 
1954 Census of Agriculture. 

A farm . — For the 1954 Census of Agriculture, places of 3 
or more acres were counted as farms if the annual value of 
agricultural products, exclusive of home-garden products, 
amounted to $150 or more. The agricultural products could 
have been either for home use or for sale. Places of less than 
3 acres were counted as farms only if the annual value of sales 
of agricultural products amounted to $150 or more. Places for 
which the value of agricultural products for 1954 was less than 
these minima because of crop failure or other unusual condi- 
tions, and places operated at the time of the Census for the first 
time were counted as farms if normally they could be expected 
to produce these minimum quantities of agricultural products. 

For the 1945 and earlier Censuses of Agriculture, the defi- 
nition of a farm was somewhat more inclusive. From 1925 
to 1945, farms, for Census purposes, included places of 3 or 
more acres on which there were agricultural operations, and 



places of less than 3 acres if the agricultural products for 
home use or for sale were valued at $250 or more. For places 
of 3 or more acres, no minimum quantity of agricultural produc- 
tion was required for purposes of enumeration; for places of 
under 3 acres, all the agricultural products valued at $250 or 
more may have been for home use and not for sale. The only 
reports excluded from the tabulations were those taken in error 
and those with very limited agricultural production, such as only 
a small home garden, a few fruit trees, a very small flock of 
chickens, etc. In 1945, reports for places of 3 acres or more 
with limited agricultural operations were retained if there were 
3 or more acres of cropland and pasture, or if the value of 
products in 1944 amounted to $150 or more when there were less 
than 3 acres of cropland and pasture. 

Farms reporting .- Farms reporting represents the number of 
farms for which the kind of expenditure or use of fertilizer or 
liming materials was reported. 

Irrigated farms . — Irrigated farms are farms on which water 
was applied to pastureland and/or to land from which crops were 
harvested in 1954. Data are given for irrigated farms for only 
17 Western States, and Arkansas, Louisiana, and Florida. 



Farms by economic 



class .— The 
3 



classification of farms by 
criteria: (1) Total value of 



economic class was based upon 

farm products sold, (2) number ofdays the farm operator worked 
off the farm, and (3) the relationship of the income received from 
nonfarm sources by the farm operator and members of his family 
to the value of all farm products sold. Farms were classified 
into two major economic groups, namely, "commercial farms" 
and "other farms." Farms in each of these two major groups 
were further classified. 

The "commercial farms" were classified into six groups- 
Classes I through V, solely on the basis of the value of farm 
products sold; and in the case of Class VI, on the additional 
basis of the days of off-farm work and the relationship of income 
of the operator and membersof his family from nonfarm sources 
to the value of all agricultural products sold. "Other farms" 
include part-time farms, all farms withavalueof farm products 
sold of less than $250, and abnormal farms (institutional farms, 
experimental farms etc.). The accompanying table gives the 
criteria for farms in each economic class. 

Farms classified by type .— Commercial farms have been 
classified by type on the basis of the relationship of the value 
of sales from a particular source, or sources, to the total value 
of all farm products sold from the farm. In some cases, the 
type of farm was determined on the basis of the sales of an in- 
dividual farm product, such as cotton, or on the basis of the 
sales of a broader group of products, such as corn, grain 
sorghums, all small grains, field peas, field beans, cowpeas, 
and soybeans. In order to be classified as a particular type, 
sales or anticipated sales of a product or a group of products 
had to represent 50 percent or more of the total value of all 
farm products sold. 

Data are presented for the following type -of- farm groups. 

All crop farms comprise cotton, cash-grain, vegetable, 
fruit-and-nut farms, and other field-crop farms (peanuts, 
Irish potatoes, sweetpotatoes, tobacco, sugarcane, and 
sugar beets) on which the value of one of these groups of 
crops sold accounted for 50 percent or more of the value 
of all farm products sold.

products sold of less than $250 and institution- 
al farms, experimental farms, grazing associa- 
tions, community -project farms, etc., regard- 
less of the value of farm products sold. 




Other farms 













All livestock farms comprise dairy, poultry, and other 
livestock farms (cattle, calves, hogs, sheep, goats, wool, 
and mohair) on which the value of one of these groups of 
livestock and livestock products accounted for 50 percent 
or more of the value of all farm products sold. 

General crop and livestock farms comprise all farms on 
which the value of any crops and livestock sold accounted 
for 70 percent or more of the total value of farm products 
sold, provided the farms could not be classified as all 
crop farms or as all livestock farms. 

All other farms include forest product farms, nursery and 
greenhouse farms, and horse farms. 

Farms by tenure of farm operator . — Farms have been classi- 
fied by tenure of operator on the basis of the arrangements under 
which the farm operator controls the land he operates. Data are 
shown for the following tenure of farm operator groups; 

Owners, part owners, and managers are farm operators 
who own all or part of the land they operate or who oper- 
ate farms for others and are paid a wage or salary for 
their services. 

Tenants rent from others, or work on shares for others, 
all the land they operate. 

Separate data are given for cash tenants, all share 
tenants, croppers (for Southern States only), and other 
tenants. 

Cash tenants pay a cash rental, such as $10 per acre 
or $1,000 for the use of the whole farm. 

All share tenants pay as rent a share of the crops or 
livestock or livestock products, or both. 

Croppers are crop- share tenants whose landlords fur- 
nish all work power. The landlords either furnish all 
the work animals or furnish tractor power in lieu of 
work animals. Cropper's usually work under the close 
supervision of the landlords, or their agents, and the 
land assigned them is often merely a part of a larger 
enterprise operated as a single unit. 



Other tenants include tenants paying a fixed quantity 
of any product; those who pay taxes, keep up the land 
and buildings, or keep the landlord in exchange for the 
use of the land; those who have the use of the land 
free; and others who could not be included in one of the 
other specified subclasses, and tenants for whom the 
rental arrangement was not specified. 

Crops fertilized in 1954 .— Data were secured in the 1954 
Census of Agriculture on the acres fertilized and the quantity 
of fertilizer used for six groups of crops in each State. Of 
the six groups of crops, three were the same for all States, 
namely: 



(1) Hay and cropland pasture 

(2) Other pasture (not cropland) 

(3) Fruits, vegetables, and potatoes 



The three crops or groups of crops comprising the other 
three groups varied by States as follows: 

(1) a. Corn New York, Pennsylvania, New Jersey, Del- 

b. Wheat aware, Maryland, West Virginia, Iowa, II-

Since data were not compiled for all States for each crop or 
group of crops listed above, the acreage fertilized cannot be 
related to the acreage of these crops in the United States. The 
proportion of the acreage of each crop in 1954 in the United 
States, harvested in the States for which separate data for the 
same crop fertilized were obtained, was as follows:

Cropland pasture includes rotation pasture and all other crop- 
land that was used only for pasture. 

Improved pasture includes only pasture, not cropland pasture 
and not woodland pasture, on which one or more of the following 
practices had been used: liming, fertilizing, seeding to grasses 
or legumes, irrigating, draining, or controlling weeds or brush. 

Acres of hay .-The acres of hay represents the total acres 
of land from which hay was cut. Sorghum, soybean, cowpeas, 
and peanut hays were excluded from this total. 

Source and Reliability of Data for 1954 

The information on the expenditures for fertilizer and lime, 
the quantity of fertilizer and lime used, and the acreage on 
which used was collected for a sample of approximately 20 per- 
cent of all the farms. The data given in the tables in this report 
represent estimates for all farms, based upon data tabulated 
for the sample. (For a description of the sample, the method of 
compiling the data, and a statement of the reliability of estimates 
based on the sample, reference should be made to the Introduction 
to Volume 11 of the reports for the 1954 Census of Agriculture.) 
The data for counties are subject to considerable sampling error 
and this fact should be considered when comparing amounts of 
fertilizer used as reported by the Census and by other sources 
and when comparing the acres fertilized for each crop with the 
acres harvested. 

The amount of fertilizer used relates to the quantity applied 
in 1954. In the case of winter wheat and other fall sown crops, 
the acres fertilized refer to the acres of the crop planted in the 
fall of 1954, and not to the acres harvested in 1954. In the 
drought areas, in the case of some crops, the acres fertilized 
includes the acres on which fertilizer was applied; the crop 
was not harvested from part of these acres because of crop 
failure. The total acres of other crops to which the acres of 
other crops fertilized have been related, was calculated by sub- 
tracting the acres of hay, fruits, vegetables, and potatoes, and 
two other selected crops from the acres of cropland harvested. 
In some cases, more than one crop was harvested from the same 
land in 1954, and since the acres of each of these crops fertilized 
were counted as acres fertilized, and the acres of cropland 
harvested, regardless of the number of crops harvested on the 
land in 1954, were counted only once, the acres of other crops 
fertilized may exceed the calculated acres of other crops. 



For counties, the data on acres of crops fertilized are esti- 
mates based upon tabulations for a sample of approximately 20 
percsnt of the farms, while the data for the acreage of the 
various crops harvested represent totals for all farms. Thus, 
the figures on acres fertilized may differ considerably from 
the acres harvested because of the use of a sample to obtain 
acres fertilized. 



For 1954, fertilizer was to include only commercial fertilizer 
or fertilizing material. No specific mention was made of basic 
slag. In some areas, particularly in the East South Central 
States where considerable quantities of basic slag are used, 
basic slag was not considered a fertilizing material by some of 
the farm operators and hence was not reported. Lime and liming 
materials were to include ground limestone, hydrated and burnt 
lime, marl, oyster shells, and other forms of lime. 

The United States total for tons of fertilizer used, as reported 
in the 1954 Census, was about 15 percent below the total shown 
by reports of the United States Department of Agriculture, based 
on data obtained from nearly all fertilizer manufacturers. The 
difference in data from these two sources is explained largely 
by the exclusion by the Bureau of the Census and the inclusion 
by the United States Department of Agriculture of dried manures, 
secondary and trace nutrient materials, and fertilizers for non- 
farm purposes, such as for lawns, parks, golf courses, home 
gardens, etc., and the underreporting in the Census of the quanti- 
ty of basic slag used. 

The data presented by count if sand those presented by State 
economic areas, subregions, and generalized type-of-farming 
areas were obtained from different tabulations and will differ 
slightly because adjustments were not made in the tabulations 
when the differences were not significant and did not affect the 
usefulness of the data. The differences are equal to less than 
one-half of one percent of the total for counties. 

Expenditures for 1954 .— The expenditures for fertilizer and 
lime were to include the expenditures for the farm, including 
the purchases of both landlords and tenants. Fertilizer and lime 
used under the Agricultural Conservation Program were to be 
reported and the total expenditure was to represent the total 
cost, without any deductions of Agricultural Conservation Pro- 
gram payments. In some areas, farm operators may not have 
known the amount of payments made by the Agricultural Con- 
servation Program and may have reported only the cost paid by 
the farm operator. 

Areas for which data are presented .— Data are presented for 
States, generalized type-of-farming areas, subregions, economic 
areas, and counties. 

The boundaries of the generalized type-of-farming areas are 
shown by the map on page XIV. These generalized type-of- 
farming areas are approximately the same as those outlined in 
1949 by the Bureau of Agricultural Economics of the United 
States Department of Agriculture. However, much of the data 
for the 1954 Census of Agriculture were compiled by subregions, 
and it has been necessary to use the data for these subregions to 
provide data for the generalized type-of-farming areas. The 
boundaries of the subregions are indicated by the map on page 
XIII, and do not correspxand exactly with the boundaries of the 
generalized type-of-farming areas. Table IV indicates the sub- 
regions that comprise each of the generalized type-of-farming 
areas and gives a brief description of subdivisions included in 
each generalized type-of-farming area. 



USE OF FERTILIZER AND LIME 



The same generalized type-of-farming area may occur in 
widely distant parts of the country. For example, some parts 
of the Dairy area are found in the Pacific Northwest although 
most of them are in the Lake States and the Northeast. The 
General Farming area (VI) is concentrated mainly in the 
Appalachian region. The Fruit, Truck and Mixed Farming 
area (1) occurs in several small areas over the country, as for 
example on the Eastern Shore between Chesapeake Bay and 
Long Island, in Florida and in Central California. The Special 
Crops and General Farming area (DC) is also widely scattered 
and is characterized principally by production of rice, sugar- 
cane, potatoes, peanuts, sugar beets, or dry beans. Other 
type-of-farming areas are identified with more or less definite 
regions such as Cotton area (VII) in the South, Feed Grains and 
Livestock area (V) in the Corn Belt, Wheat and Small Grains 
area (III) in the Central Plains States, and Range Livestock area 
(II) in the Western Mountain and Intermountain regions. 

In presenting data by generalized type-of-farming areas, it 
has been necessary to combine entire subregions because Census 
data were tabulated only by subregions. For this reason some 
of the smaller parts of one generalized type-of-farming area 
may, for purposes of this presentation, be included in another 
more dominant type-of-farming area in the region. For example, 
the Maine potato area is included along with the Dairy area, as 
dairying is the dominant type-of-farming area in the Northeast. 
However, tables 1, 2, and 3 present data on fertilizer use by 
smaller areas— counties and State economic areas. 

State economic areas represent groupings of counties within a 
State. Outside metropolitan areas, the State economic areas are, 
in general, the same as State type-of-farming areas. A map 
showing the boundaries of State economic areas is given on page 
XII. In table 1 presenting figures by counties, the counties have 
been arranged by State economic areas. 

Expenditures for fertilizer 1879 to 1954 .— Significant changes 
have occurred in the use of fertilizer during the last 75 years. 
In terms of cash outlays by farmers, the expenditures for com- 
mercial fertilizer were more than 35 times as large in 1954 as 
in 1879. While the change of price level has been a significant 
factor affecting the increase in dollar expenditures, the in- 
crease in the total quantity of fertilizer used on farms has been 
many fold. 

Changes in use of fertilizer and lime. — Some striking regional 
changes in the useof fertilizer in the United States have occurred 
in the past 25 years. In 1929 very little fertilizer was being 
used in the Great Plains and Western States. Most of the ferti- 
lizer used a quarter of a century ago was used in the following 
States or areas; North Carolina, South Carolina, Georgia, 
Florida, Alabama, Mississippi, New Jersey, Delaware, Maryland, 
southeastern Virginia, southeastern Pennsylvania, northeastern 
Maine, the Connecticut River Valley of Connecticut and Mas- 
sachusetts, and the Los Angeles area of California. 

In 1954 commercial fertilizer was used on 123 million acres 
of cropland and pasture. Lime was applied to 11 million acres. 
The accompanying map shows the distribution of fertilizer use 
in 1954. About half of the acreage fertilized in 1954 was in the 
Corn Belt, Great Plains, and Western States. In 1929 these 
areas accounted for only a sixth of the total expenditure made 
for commercial fertilizer used in the United States. About two- 
fifths of the expenditure for fertilizer in 1929 was concentrated 
in the Piedmont and Coastal Plain parts of North Carolina, 
South Carolina, Georgia, and Alabama. 

Most of the fertilizer used in 1929 was applied to the more 
intensively cultivated crops, especially to cotton, tobacco, fruit, 
truck, and potatoes. These crops have continued to absorb an 
important part of the fertilizer applied, but several other crops 
and pasture, which were not formerly fertilized to any great 
extent, are now widely fertilized. 



In 1954 commercial fertilizer was applied to almost 123 
million acres. About 4 million of these acres comprised im- 
proved pasture other than cropland pasture. The other 119 
million acres comprised cropland and represented more than 
one-fourth of the total cropland in the United States. In 1954 
commercial fertilizer was applied to more than 13 million 
acres of hay and cropland pasture, 46.5 million acres of corn, 
11 million acres of wheat, 9.7 million acres of cotton, and 6.3 
million acres of fruits, vegetables, and potatoes. This means 
that three-fifths of the corn; a fifth of the wheat acreage; about 
half the cotton; and two-thirds of the fruit, vegetables, and 
potatoes had some application of fertilizer in 1954. 

Consumption of commercial fertilizer and liming materials 
in the United States .— The consumption of commercial fertilizers 
in the continental United States in 1954 was almost 19 million 
tons, an increase of 172 percent over the 7 million tons used in 
1939. The most rapid regional increase was in the Northern 
Plains States. More than twenty times as much fertilizer was 
used in this area in 1954 as in 1939. However, this region used 
less fertilizer in 1954 than any other except the Mountain States. 
The greatest tonnage of fertilizer was used in the Corn Belt, 
followed by the Southeast and Appalachian Regions. These three 
regions include the only States using more than a million tons 
annually. North Carolina consumed 1.3 million tons in 1954, 
followed by Georgia with 1.2 million tons, Florida with 1.1 mil- 
lion tons, Illinois with 1 million tons, and Indiana with 1 million 
tons. 

The use of liming materials in 1954 was more than double 
that of 1939. Consumption in the Northern Plains increased 
more than 10- fold during this period, followed by the Delta 
States with a 7 -fold increase. The only area in which con- 
sumption dropped was the Mountain States, where there was a 
decrease of almost 75 percent. Of the 6 States using over a 
million tons in 1954, Illinois used the largest quantity, 2.5 mil- 
lion tons. 

Trends in use of fertilizer and of liming materials since 1910 
are shown by the chart on page XVII. Consumption of fertilizer, 
relative to the 1947-49 average, has risen each year since 1938. 
Currently, consumption in terms of available plant nutrients, is 
about one and two- thirds times that during the base period 
(1947-1949). Use of liming materials expanded markedly during 
the period 1936 to 1947 when this practice was encouraged 
through conservation programs. Following 1947, consumption of 
liming materials has declined substantially. Differences in re- 
cent trends in use of fertilizer compared with use of lime re- 
flect farmers' relative evaluations of these practices. In the 
case of fertilizer, the returns to the farmer are quickly obtained. 
Liming materials are more generally regarded as capital invest- 
ments and the returns occur at a much slower rate than for 
fertilizer. The decline in use of liming materials may be 
greater than is indicated by consumption data because the rising 
nutrient content of fertilizers means that less calcium or mag- 
nesium bearing materials are used in commercial fertilizers. 

Use of fertilizer by generalized type-of-farming areas .— 
Variations in percentage of acreage fertilized, in quantity of 
fertilizer used, and in rates of application per fertilized acre 
among broad type-of-farming areas are indicated by data in 
table IV. 

The quantity of fertilizer used was greatest in the Cotton type- 
of-farming area (VII), followed in order by Feed Grains and 
Livestock, (V), Dairy (IV), the Fruit, Truck, and Mixed Farming 
(I), and General Farming (VI) areas. These five areas account 
for more than 80 percent of all fertilizer used in the United 
States in 1954. 

More than 30 percent of all fertilizer was used on corn in 
1954, and about one-third of that used on corn was used in the 
Feed Grain and Livestock type-of-farming area (V). Even in the 



USE OF FERTILIZER AND LIME 



XI 



Cotton area (VII) nearly as much fertilizer was used on corn as 
on cotton. About one-seventh of the total quantity of fertilizer 
was used on fruits, vegetables, and potatoes, and 57 percent of 
the fertilizer applied tothesecrops was usedin the Fruit, Truck, 
and Mixed Farming area (I). About one-ninth of the tonnage of 
fertilizer was used on hay and cropland pasture, and one-tenth, 
on cotton. Nearly 45 percent of the fertilizer used on hay and 
cropland pasture was used in the Dairy (IV) and the Cotton (VII) 
areas. 

The average amount of fertilizer used per acre fertilized was 
higher for tobacco than for any other selected crop for which 
data were obtained in the Census. The average amount applied 
per acre on corn ranged from nearly 400 pounds in the Fruit, 
Truck, and Mixed Farming area (I), to less than 100 pounds in 
the Wheat and Small Grains area (III). The average rate applied 
on cotton in the General Farming area (VI) was about 1.4 times 
as high as in the Cotton type-of-farming area (VII). The average 
amount used per acre on hay and cropland pasture and on im- 
proved permanent pasture approximated or exceeded 300 pounds 
per acre in the Fruit, Truck, and Mixed Farming (I), the Dairy 
(IV), the General Farming (VI), the Cotton (VII), the Tobacco 
and General Farming (VIII), and in the Special Crop and General 
Farming (IX) areas. Only in the Range Livestock (II) and Wheat 
and Small Grains (III) areas were average amounts used per acre 
on hay and cropland pasture below 200 pounds per acre. 

Use of fertilizer and liming materials, by State economic 
areas . — Considerable variation in fertilizer practices occurs be- 
tween type-of-farming areas (State economic areas) within a 
State. This variation usually reflects differences in soils, type 
of farming, etc. For example, table 2 indicates a wide difference 
in percentage of crop acreages fertilized and in average rates 
per acre between State economic area 7b and areas 8 and D in 
Alabama. Area 7b is in the Cotton generalized farming area 
(VII). State economic areas 8 and Dare in the Fruit, Truck, and 
Mixed Farming area (1) on the Gulf Coast. 

Table 3 shows fertilizer practice for each economic area in 
the 20 States for which data are available separately for irri- 
gated and non-irrigated farms. For the 20 States as a whole, 
7.5 percent of all crops and pasture land on irrigated farms was 
fertilized at an average rate of 349 pounds per acre. For non- 
irrigated farms, 4.8 percent of the crop and pasture land was 
fertilized at an average rate of 205 pounds. Similar compari- 



sons are available for the other crops specified in table 3 for 
each of the 20 States. 

Use of fertilizer and liming materials by economic class . 
tenure of operator and tvpe of farm .— Data on use of fertilizer 
and liming materials by economic class of farm, tenure of 
operator, and type of farm are presented for each economic 
area, by States and for the United States in tables 4, 5, and 6. 

Except in the South, farmers in the higher economic classes 
generally fertilized or limedahigher percentage of their acreage 
of crops and cropland pasture than those in the lower income 
classes. 

A higher percentage of cropland was fertilized on the all 
crop farms than on the other types in most of the Northeastern, 
Appalachian, and Lake States. In some of the Corn Belt States and 
in the Southeast, the percentage of acreage fertilized varied 
very little by type of farm. In most of the humid areas, the 
amount of fertilizer and lime used per acre was higher on the 
all crop farms than on general crop and livestock types of 
farms. The quantity of liming materials applied per acre was 
substantially lower on all types of farms in the South than in 
the Central or Northern States. 

Generally there appeared to be no consistent relationship 
between quantity of fertilizer or liming materials applied per 
acre or between percentage of cropland and improved permanent 
pasture fertilized or limed and tenure of operator. However, 
a large part of the acreage operated and, consequently, a large 
part of the fertilizer and liming material used and most of the 
acreage fertilized or limed was on farms of owners, part owners, 
and managers. 

Fertilizer use by rateof use per acre .— Tables V and 7 present 
data for selected crops and selected State economic areas, for 
acres fertilized and quantity of fertilizer used for farms classi- 
fied by rate of use per acre. The data given in table V are 
arranged by generalized type-of-farming areas. The distribution 
of farms, acres fertilized, and amount of fertilizer used by the 
rate of application differ significantly among areas for most of 
the selected crops. For example, the distribution of farms by 
rate of use of fertilizer for corn is significantly different for 
Dairy areas in New York and Wisconsin. Type of soil, climate, 
kind of crops grown, etc., have significant effects upon the rate 
of use of fertilizer by farmers.
