! r1uo of potash as against gypsum.
Both sulphato and chlorite of pot
ash wcro used. At tho end of tho
Bcason results obtained strongly In
dicated that sulphur In land plaster
and potassium sulphato was most Im
portant In Increasing yields. This
explanation was suggested by Doctor
Jtotmer and Professor Tartar as n
.result of successful uso of other

sulphur Is tho greatest limiting fac
tor in these soils where legumes such
as alfalfa are to bo grown.
Tho Deschutes Valley Investigations,
Pv 1018.
) Four fairly complete fcrtlllxcr ex
periments wcro conducted during tho
j past year and many additional fer
tilizer demonstrations wore carried
j ino
I' In theso trials sulphur caused the
Miaest marked gain in tho yield or
alfalfa. The average gain from all
representative trials was about IV
tons an acre. This was generally n
larger Increase than was obtained by
gypsum. The sulphur treatment may
bo expected to glvo more lasting re
sults. Since It is posslblo that sul
phur may have a stimulating effect
upon tho soil, il Is strongly urged
that In order to maintain the fertility
jtie crops produced bo fed out on
fho land or tho manure returned to
the soil.
, Sulphur is especially Important
for legumes such as alfalfa, clover,
vetch, peas and beans and tho cab
bago family. Redmond domonstra
Jftion farm soil contains 646 pounds
'rigt sulphur in the plowed surface
I$f Inches), or sufficient to meet
to requirements of heavy crops of
alfalfa for buU.20 years. The In
creased yields obtained from the ap
Implication of sulphur indicate that It
Ktij a limiting element for certain of
four soils in tho arid and semi-arid
'.Sections of the state for crops like
'Jilfaifa. Sulphur may be applied as
, powdered sulphur dr calcium sul
phate or gypsum. It is also present
' In superphosphate and in barnyard
' manure. Gypsum contains about 18
j pounds of sulphur to the hundred
". pounds and acts promptly, as sul- warmer.
phur must bo In sulphate form to bo
used by plants. Powdorod sulphur
acts moro slowly, but Its beneficial
effect has been obsorved tho fourth
yenr nftor Its application. Supor
phosphnto contains phosphorus, sul
phur and lime. Potassium sulphato
contains potassium and sulphur. It
appears to bo good practlco to apply
CO to SO pounds of sulphur an aero
to tho Deschutes valley soil onco In
tho rotation or onco In every four or
flro years. Tho application should
bo mado on alfalfa or other legume.
Ono hundred and fifty or 200 pounds
of land plaster onco In two or throo
years could bo substituted for sul
phur on legumes. Tho uso of sul
phur on sour soil or on crops other
than lagumes Is not past tho experi
mental stago In Oregon. 4
i Nltrogon Is often tho most Import
ant element for Deschutes soils 'and
crops. It is used in largo quantities
by most crops. Tho cheapest source
of nitrogen Is the legumes which
both securo their own nltrogon from
tho air and leave a largo amount In
tho soil for succeeding crops. Tho
uso of rotation and manure, with
legutno sod plowed under every tour
or Ave years, or with nlfnlta plowed
In after five or six years, should In
crease tho supply of this valuable
plant food.
Potash and phosphorus In tho Do
schutcs valley soils Is about average
Certain crops llko potatoes, clover
or root crops mako heavy domanda
upon potassium, and nt normal prices
this fertilizer has boon used with a
good margin of profit In Deschutes
valley experiments. Since war con
ditions havo mado, the prico of potash
prohibitive, the uso of wood ashes
and manure must, at present, bo do
pended upon to help maintain un
available supply of this clement.
Phosphorus is used by plants in
much smaller quantities than nitro
gen, but is often a very Important
limiting element in soils. Tho uso
of phoephorus has caused increased
yields in Deschutes county soils but
this may be partly duo to tho sulphur
contained In the superphosphate.
Eventually some phospate may have
to bo used to supplement or balance
manure In maintaining fertility.
Organic matter Is probably tho
greatest need of Deschutes soils. Tho
source of this material Is stable man
ure, straw and legume sod, or roots
and leaves of plants. This material
has many beneficial effects in the
soil. Decauso it Is spongy It in
creases the water capacity. It makes
the soil moro mellow and friable. It
