FARM OF FORTY ACRES
Equipment. Management and In
come of Small Place.
Convenient Scheme for Dividing Land
Into Five-Acre Tracts One of
These Utilized for Home
stead and Garden.
(Ily V J. SPU.I.MAN, Chief of I'nlted
Htutcn llurcjti of I'd rm Mumitiicnt.)
Mr. H. 11. .Mowty of thu olllco of
farm management, linn been making
u special study of thu equipment, man
ugemuiit and incottu' of a lurp.e mini-
j bur of smnjl fruit and truck farms,
many of them run by peoplu who hau
1 recently come Mom the city.
This study haH given us Bomewhat
a new point of vluw In general these
small farmers are not successful. This
fact hus led us to study the question
moro closely, and as a result a
scheme for the management of a forty
acre farm Is outlined below, which
I seems to bo practicable.
Kiguro 1 shows a convenient scheme
for subdividing forty acres to lit It for
the cropping system to bo outlined
below. It will be observed that tho
forty acres are divided Into eight live
acre tracts. One of these Is set aside
for what may bo called tho "home
stead." These llvo acres arc at tho
Korty-acro farm subdivided Into eight
flvv-ncre tructH. Tills shows u convenient
method of milidlvlslon which kIvoh ncecsa
to all the fields without wanting much
lund In roads. length of lines kIvcii In
center on ono side, and it is supposed
that a public road passes this uldo
of the tract.
Of these llvo acres half an acre Is
utilized for tho houso and yurd and
tho barn unu nam 101. this space is i
ample for what wo havo in view. One
half aero is devoted to garden, ono
and one-half acres to orchard and tho
remaining two acres for a paddock
Into which to turn the stock for oxer-
Hy judicious management theso two
acres can also bo made to furnish
Home pasture and so mo soiling crops.
The other seven flrc-ncro tracts aru
to bo devoted to a seven-year rota
tion. When this rotation is in full
swing tho crops on tho farm for a
given year will bo as follows: Field A.
potatoes; field II, three acres of cab
bage and two ncres of onions; field C,
corn; field D, cowpeas; field K. corn;
field F, clover; field G, clover.
Tho next year each of theso crops
would inovo to another field an fol
lows: The potatoes would go to field
G, which was In clover thu year be
fore. Tho cabbago and onions next
year would go to field U. Tho corn on
field C would go tho next year to field
U. Cowpeas In field D would go the
next yenr to field C. The corn in field
E would go to D, whllo B would bo
sown In clover and P remain In clover.
Tho next year each crop would move
to another field in tho Bamo manner,
so that each year potatoes aro sown
after second year clover, cabbago and
onions aro planted after potatoes, otc.
The potatoes, cabbago and onions od
this farm would form tho market
crops." Tho two fields of corn, the
field of cowpeas and tho first year's
seeding of clover would furnish twenty
acres of forage for tho llvo, stock,
whllo tho second year clover would
furnish pasture for tho llvo stock dur
ing tho summer.
In each of tho two corn fields some
winter grain, such as wheat or ryo,
could bo sown early in August at the
time when the corn 1b laid by, that
Is, when cultivation of tho corn
ceases. This wheat would furnish fall
and winter pasture for tho llvo stock.
In the corn field which Is to be fol
lowed by clover tho wheat would bo
turned under very early in the spring
In preparation for sowing the clover.
In the corn field which is to be fol
lowed by cowpeas tho wheat could re
main until tho second year clover field
Is ready to turn stock on, at which
time It might be plowed up and sown
to cowpeas. Wo thus havo pasture
during tho wholo year in sections
where the seasons permit winter pas
turing. In states that are too far north for
tho cowpeas, soy beans may bo sub
stituted for them, and in regions too
fnr north for soy beans, oats can bo
used on this field, tho other crops In
the rotation remaining tho same. Com
mercial fertilizers would bo required
for tho potatoes, cabbago and onions.
There Is plenty of good literature
published by tho department of agri
culture and by u good many of the
stato experiment stations rolatlvo to
tho cultivation and fertilization of po
tatoes, cabbago and onlomi, and the
reader is referred to this lltoraturo for
further information concerning tho
growing of theso crops.
Ono fnct to which I would call at
tention Is that In tho marketing of po
tatocs, cabbago nnd onions it in nol
necessary for tho farmer to run tc
market every day for several weeks
as would bo tho case with most othei
kinds of truck crops, especially straw i
borrlcs nnd tomatocB. i
