SELECTION OF SEED CORN.
There Is no moro important factor
I concerned In tho production of largo
j yields of corn than tho proper selec
tion and caro of tho seed. Tho se
lecting of seed cars of deslrablo quul-
lty Is just as Important to the farmer
as Is tho selection of animals for
Tho best method of selecting seed
corn, is to allow It to becomo thor
oughly ripened on tho stalk and then
select It from tho field beforo tho
corn Is picked. Thcro Is considerable
ndvnntUKO to bo gained In being ablo
to cxamlno tbo stalk from which nn
ear of corn comes. In this way n man
can select ears only from thoso stalks
which bavo tbo normal amount of
room and which havo tho ears at
tho proper height. Frequently good
uurs us wo pick them from tho cribs
uro simply duo to tho fact that tho
stalk on which they grew wns tho
only ono in tho hill and therefore
had n much better chanco than the
average, Whut wo wnnt Is n good
our produced on stalks -which havo
only an nvcrogo chunco and which are
good becauso of somo horldltary
causo. Such cars will bo moro pro
ductive than thoso selected from Iso
Tho next best way to select seed
corn is to select tho good ears as
tho corn is being picked and throw
these In a box on wagon Boparato from
tho main load. This Is tbo common
method of thoso who give reasonablo
caro In seed corn selection. Uut In
whatever way these selections aro
uindo, a considerably larger amount
of corn should bo thus selected thnu
Is necessary for seed, so It will then
bo posslblo to rc-seloct beforo stor
ing thorn for tho winter.
This selected corn should bo spread
In a thin layer on some convenient
floor space and allowed to dry out
quickly, especially corn grown on bot
tom land. Somo men provide rough
racks In which to storo this corn to
favor Its rapid drylng.Cold weather,
such as we havo in Fulton county,
has little effect on dry corn. If the
corn Is not thoroughly dry when hea
vy freezing comes, It Is almost In
variably injured In germanatlon and
tho strength of germanlnatlon of corn
has a great deal to moro to do with
the yield than Is commonly supposed.
Whore a man has an attic or va
cant room In tho house, it Is frequent
ly a good plan to use that for seed
The Important point In tbo whole
matter of storage Is to get tho corn
dry quickly and keep It dry. If this
Is dono, tho germanlnatlon Is almost
sure to bo good.
