Plow Deep With Big Plows.
We have been taking observations
and practicing . deep plowing many
years and bavo our mind made ap on
thia question. Weare now determined
not to rent an aero of land to no one
unless at least two horses are need in
preparing tho laud for planting.
I have in mind a piece of poor hind
that boa been rented for 12 y cara to
one-mulo skimmers that have plowed,
thieland only from two to four inches
deep. Terraces did not keep the soil
from disappearing. ; It took about
four acres to moko a halo of cotton..
Alter the cotton was off. thia land was
awned '?s 4eep as three b> *vy horses
could palina reversaba ?/i<.\ *olow, and
followed with subsoil ?r?p as two
mules could pail it ia bottom of the
furrow. A neighbor passing by said
we were killing the land, (the land'was
dead already), and from tho looks of
tho crops this year we might have lull
ed tu? land Vas dead as Hector" and
it rotted? making good manure, as the
crop of oats were fine and pea vines
that followed , the oats : grew waist
high; We are now- 206*?. of September-,
mewing a tine crop of vines.
Y?s oans?? piow weil drained or
rolling clay lands too deep in fall, or
early winter. Where we have taken
charge of worn clay lands, we have'
torn down ali terrace banke and plow
ed the land from ZS to 17 inches deep
and our crops a$e double one-horse
renters' crops joining Our deep plowed
land. Deep plowed lends without ter
racing do not wash like shallow plowed
lands well terraced.
Some good writers:-have', argued that
pea stubble- should not be turned, bat
glowed with narrow plows. , Now .one
i&d with.': thr?e or tour horans can
plow about three times o, much land
and do it better than one or two horses,
to narro w nlowe. Our days of-piddling
along breaking land with uarrow plows
are done. We eandot afford to put a
75 centsOr $1.00 band behind, a.three
or foiir inch plow; we must arrange
things co that a dollar hand will break
a farrow twelve inches deep, and plow;
ont ay whole row at a timb ra cultiva
ting erops> or the dollar , e. day band
wilt coon owu the land, and the land
owner of today will be. driving im
nrnc-R(l plO"'o fo? a iuvro progressive,
larmer bet?r?) many years pass by. :9s
If yon Waut more land go down and
get it; don's spread out after itl It
costs lees taxes and dees - money per
acre to go down alter mer0acr?a? ?pu
the cost in cultivation in -future ia not
more than one-third as much per acre.
You must keep up with the front Of
this progressive march of VheA ageor
you will drop out of ranka.
It is calculated by good, authority
that the ' first--.twelve inches of good
clay land contains over three hnri4?ed
dollars .worth of mineral fertilisers per :
acre if put in available form for crops.
Doep plowing.in ffcll will allow the
action of frost, air and rains to make
ifeii inert 'er?i??z?r ?vai??o?e f^r next
year'? crop. It ia not hard to prove
this theory to bo true; try it Or go and
see the ??nd where others .have put
th* test ?,6 lt in a practical woy.
; Go down into the bowels of the
earth by deep plowing and get mois
ture for your crops; you need not lay
all the blame on providence for not
sending moisture; down On your crops
from above whon providence haa'pro-*
vided a way for you to receive it worn
below? and also a way to sto.ro more
rain water by deeper plowing.
Biit What is the lise?
Strive as you may to make profitable
crops, if yon continue: the rule of al
lowing the n?n-producer the privilege
of pricing your products, the producer
wilt gain butlUtle.hy producing cheap,
if he Sells Jiis producta at or near cost.
Many of tba cotton growers -pf the
South for y ears.have lost inore by not:
selling their cotton right? than they
bave gained by producing ..their- crops
right. They have lost more bjr' not
of good business roles than they have
gained by producing'.their crops nader
