In addition to these two points, the
bugs do not feed upon the soybeans,
the specialists say.
Im-rraiNxl Acreage Marks New Inter
tut In Soybean And Corn Grown
Prospects are favorable for 60-thousand-acre
crop of soybeans in
corn in Kentucky this year, accord
ing to Ralph -Kenney, crops exten
sion specialist of the College of Ag
riculture. Farmers in all parts of
the State are showing increased In
terest in this combination which
has proved to be an economical one
for pork production when hogged
off and valuable as a soil improver
when the bean vines are allowed to
rot on the ground after the hogging
.off or the corn harvest, he said.
"In planting the combination this
year, many farmers will use bean
attachments on their corn planters
while others will mix the bean and
corn seed in equal parts and drill
or check them with the same plates
and chain combinations that theyj
use for seeding an ordinary standi Failure to set the plants deep

may be planted by hand. I
"Only three to five buBhels of
beans are needed on an acre to fura-i
ish sufficient protein to balance a 40
to 50 buahel an acre corn crop. This
amount may be obtained by seeding,
from six to ten pounds of bean seed
in the same row with corn. The.
beans should be planted not more
than one Inch deep and when plant
ed on ground that has not grown
beans before should be Inoculated.
The soybeans-corn combination
merits the increased interest being!
taken in it by farmers, Mr. Kenney
believes. "When grown in corn as
outlined and hogged off, the beans
produce from 150 to 200 pounds ot
pork more an acre than Is secured
by corn alone," he continued. "The
seed costs from 25 to 30 cents an
acre while the return in pork is 1 10
or more an acre."

x As soon as the cutting season is
over for asparagus, cultivation
should be started and continued as
leng as there Is no danger of break
ing off the tops. In the fall, the
tops should be cut and burned.
In order to have plants for trans
planting about the last of July, It Is
necessary to have late cabbage seed
sown by June 1. Flat Dutch, Louis-'
vtlle Drumhead and Succession are
good late varieties, according to
gardeners at the College of Agri
culture. Late plants should be set
about two feet apart In rows that
are from two to three feet apart de
pending upon the kind of cultiva
tion that Is to be practiced. Horse
cultivation requires that the plants
be set about three feet apart.
Sweet potatoes can be set in the
field almost any time after May 15.
The plants are set about 15 Inches
apart on ridges that are from three
and one-half to four feet apart.
This crop requires from 150 to 170
days in which to mature.
This places the roots in soil con
taining more moisture than that

increases the bearing season of the
By planting the seed about May
15, it is possible to have celery
plants to set out about July 1.
Since the seed Is slow to germinate,
it is best to plant It only on soil

Meeting To Be Held At-Greenville
Farmers in Muhlenberg and ad

striking results in soil improvement
when they visit the soil experiment
field near Greenville May 21 to at
tend the all-day field meeting te be
held there that day by the Kentucky
Agricultural Experiment Station,
according to George Roberts, head
of the station agronomy depart
ment. The field Is In better condi
tion than It ha been tor several
years past while limestone, acid
phosphte, rock phosphate, manure
and combinations ot these have pro
duced some notable inereases In
crop yields when used on the rota
tion of corn, soybeans, wheat and
clover grown on the field, he said.
The meeting to be held on the
Greenville field will be one of the
annual series of six held on the soil
experiment fields in different parts
of the State to point out Important
factors In soil Improvement as
brought out by the experiments
which have been conducted for a
number of years.
Speakers at the meeting will be
Director P. Cooper, of the station,
Mr. Roberts, S. C. Jonds, superin
tendent ot the fields, and Morgan O.
Hughes, special agent ot the sta
tion. ' His appearance at the meet
ings will be the last one in the
State for Mr. Hughes before he sails
for Europe. He Is recognized as
one of the foremost agricultural
authorities la Kentucky.
The combination ot limestone and
acid phosphate has brought about
the greatest Increase . In - crop
yields on the field although ' the
other materials also have been ef
fective In boosting yields, Mr. Rob

Corn yield . Increases brought
about by the various materials in
