EMERSON ALFALFA RENOVATOR ! ;
MACHINES FOR ALFALFA AND
A machine lias recently come to xny
notice which I am rure will soon be
used considerably by the farmers of
the west, especially those 'engaged in
growing dry farm alfalfa, cither for
hay or seed. This machine is called
the Emerson Alfalfa Renovator. In
other words it is a spike toothed disc.
Tine spikes arc in the shape of har
row teeth with the exception that they
arc slightly curved to give the wheel,
which twenty of them form, a slight
disc. The machine has twelve of
these wheels making 240 spikes. Each
individual spike is bolted on so that
if one is broken another can -foe read
ily put on. It works in the same man
ner as does a regular disc and so can
be made to -cu. either deep or shal
low. Two good horses will pull the
The advantage which this mrchine
has over the ordinary disc is that it
pulverizes the ground much better,
thus forming a better -muloh for the
conservation of moisture. It tears up ,
all shallow rooted plants better than '
docs the disc, thus destroying June, m
or Cheat grass more effectively. It J f
does not cut off the roots of alfalfa Jr J
as does the disc, but splits the W I
crowns and causes the alfalfa to
spread and thus thicken the stand. M
The only disadvantage which it has m
is that it is a little heavier pulling
than is the ordinary disc, but when we ; )
consider that going over the field '
once with the Alfalfa Renovator does , '
as thorough work as going over the '
field1 three times with the ordinary .
disc a great deal of labor and time is '
saved by using this machine. Not ,
only this, but more moisture is con- ' ,
served, no alfalfa roots -cut off or de-
stroyed and all June grass and other t
shallow roobed weeds are killed which '
is quite a consideration.
