In such cases, it is the material itself, rather than the form of nitrogen it supplies, that makes it different from inorganic fertilizers. It is nonsense to term either organic or inorganic forms as more "healthful,'' "wholesome," or similar terms. There may be other reasons some such products are registered as "soil amend- ments" rather than as fer- tilizers. Burt Ginther of the Montana State University Chemistry Station explained that it costs only $5.00 a year to register and sell a "soil amendment," while it costs $35.00 per brand name, plus $10.00 for each grade registered, to register and sell fertilizer. Most' 'miracle" products are sold on the premise that the unit cost is high because it is potent and little is needed, or that theunit cost is low but a lot is needed to do a good job Before buying products not scientifically proven effective. figure the cost of plant nutrients or talk to someone who understands soils and fertilizers such as a reputable dealer. Montana soils usually need nitrogen and phosphorus for maximum crop production, and a reasonable application rate usually gives a good economic return. STATEWIDE MARKETING CONFERENCE Representative John Melcher and Lieutenant W. C. (Bill Chrlstiansen will be among speakers in marketing news and price information at the statewide marketing con- ference planned in November for all producers. Though prices are high for many commodities raised by Montana producers, the situation can change overnight. Thus the reason for planning the statewide marketing conference to pool interests and look at the timeliness of marketing news and price information. Agriculture is now a billion dollar industry in Montana, the king of all industries, and its future has an important impact on consumers, townspeople and Main Street. A panel of producer representatives of at least eight commodities will also discuss the contemporary marketing situation. Futures markets and vertical integration will also be on the planned program. The meeting is now scheduled for Nov. 12 and 13 in Billings. Coordinating the program with George Lack- man. Ag. department com- missioner, will be Dr. Charles Rust of the Cooperative Ex- tension Service, Montana State University, Bozeman. All in- terested persons, including consumers are invited.

The Sidney Herald, Sidney, Mont., Wed., Oct. 3,1973 - II Se00ice gives crop reports Montana wheat farmers are making good progress seeding winter wheat and the crop is now nearly 55 per cent planted report the Montana Crop and Livestock Reporting Service and the Extension Service. Rains over much of the state helped germination and im- proved stands. Germination of winter wheat ranges from fair to good, with the best stands in the eastern half of the state. In most of Montana, last week's rains have not been enough to provide subsoil moisture, begin recharge of groundwater, or adequately increase streamflow. Topsoil moisture is still mostly short in the northwestern and nor. thcentral districts, although a few counties within each of these districts now have adequate surface moisture. Most other areas of Montana have adequate topsoil moisture but only the eastern districts report adequate subsoil moisture.
