Pictures show a man leaning against a lorry laden with bags of Fisons super Beet. He is fingering the extra profit earned from use of the product. Working out his sums on the fertiliser bag he illustrates how Fisons Super Beet gives ?104 extra profit or ?3.25 an acre. 3) Fisons Double Season.

The message of the commercial is that the product is easy to spread, allowing the farmer to be inside with a warm mug of cocoa before it rains.For bigger winter wheat profits. 4) Fisons Concentrated Main Crop Potato. The possible concern about this product was that it was low in phosphate. The commercial is a staged, dramatised argument between a commercial man and a scientist. The commercial man thinks that this is the truth. The Scientist shows him the figures. He is convincedAll the potash most soils need. 5) Fisons Extra N. This is a cartoon advertisement in which the main information is shown in relief in growing corn. Extra N is a 25-10-10 compound, producing high yields year after year.Extra yield, extra profit. 6) Fisons Nitro Top.
