0ORN RAI01G PLAN.
Brief Presentation of the "William
son Plan" by Mr. Rice.
The "Williamson plan" of raising,
corn has during the last few monthi
received many favorable comments
and the farmers in many seettoiis of
the State are adopting the plan do
vised by Mr. E. Melver Williamson, of
Darlington. . The method is said to
work wonders in the way of increas
ing the output of corn per aere and
promises to sonie extent to revolution
ize South Carolina..
A condensed formula of the mbthod
has been prepared by Mr. James Hen
ry Rice, 'Jr., the well known writer
and it is as follows:
Break land in winter one-fourth
deeper than common; lay off in six
foot rows, leaving five-inch balk.
When time to plant break out balk
with scooter, following in same fur
row on this ridge. Ridge then with
same- plow, g6ing deeper; run coin
planter with Dixie plow, with wing.
taken off. Plant as early as possible,
usually about the inddle of March.
Drop corn grains every five or six
inches. Use no fertilizer. Give first
workin- \vith harrow or any plow
that. will not cover plant. Second
working with 10 or 12-inch sweep on
both sides of plant. Thin after this
Corn should not be worked again
until suficiently stunted, so that it
will iever g'row large. Wlenl it is
about. 10 to 12 inches high put oin
fertilizer. Mix 200 poun(ds cotton
seed meal, 200 pounds acid p1josphate,
400 pounds kainit. Put half in old
sweep furrow, on both sides of every
other middle. Cover by breaking out
middle with turn plow. One week
later treat the 6ther middle in the
same way, fertilizer and all. In a
few days side e(Yrn in first middle
with 16-inch sweep. Put all your
-nitrate of soda in this furrow, if less
than 150 pounds is used; if more, put
half. Cover with one furrow or turn
plow, then sow peas in middle broad
cast. at rate of a bushel- to the acre,
and finish breaking out. Lay by early.
More corn is ruined by late plowiing
than by lack of plowing. No hoeing
is llecessary and middle may be k1ept
clean unt.il fimie to break out by liar
For 50 bushels to the aeie leave
stalks 1( inches apart; for 75 bushels,
12 inches; for 100 bushels, 7 inhes
Do not pull fodder ; do not. but
tops; let peas and pea vines (lie On
