j N HRPER, Since a number tJ
Agronmistof ir.quiries have c
come to the Farm Service Burean~ t4
about methcds of corn culture it is
considered advisable to recommend the,
Williamson method to farmers in the h
coastal region or those who have sandy p
loam soils. The following is an out- l
line of the Irethod in Mr. Williamson'ss
own words: y
"Break the land broadcast during the sl
winter, usin~g a two horse plow or,
better, a disc plow. Bed with turn
plow six-foot rows, leaving a five-inch ~
balk. When ready to plant, break s
this out with a scooter. Plow deeply i:
in the bottom of this furrow, using a te
Dixie with wing taken off. Ridge then sa
on this fierrow with same plow still le
going deep. Run the corn planter on es
this ridge, dropping one grain every e3
five or six inches. c
"Plant early, as soon as frost dan- ra
ger is past. Early planting is espe- on
cily needful on very rich lands si
where stalks can not otherwise be
kept from growing too large.
"Give the first wolking with a har- 1i:
row or any plow that will not cover Io
the plant. For second working use th
ten or twelve inch sweep. Corn should p1
not be worked again until the growth al
has been so retarded, and the stalk ki
so hardened that it will never grow th
too large. This is the most difficult hi
point in the whole process. Enperi
ence and judg:ment are required to
know just how much the stalk should pl
be stunted, and plenty of nerve is re- Sc
quired to hold back your corn when a
your neighbors, who fertilized at plant- fe
ing time and cultivated rapidly, have ou
corn twice the size of yours. be
"When you are convinced that your fri
corn has been sufficiently humiliated. ar
row the school goes to the ninth
grade. More teaching force has
jeen added to the work school
which makes the work lighter
md better. The results have
>een very encouraging. On Field
