cultivator if possible. It consumes

out. A properly cultivated surface
soil will send moisture, laden with
plant food, up through the corn roots
and stalks to make cars.
Every weed in a cornfield is an
enemy. It drinks up moisture and
consumes plant food that should go to
make corn kernels instead of weed
seed. Destroy weeds when they ap
pear. Attack them, if possible, in fair
weather. You will then have the sun
as a powerful ally.
Evaporation pf moisture lowers
temperature. A wet, evaporating
soil surface is cold. A dry aoil sur
face is warm. A loose soil surface
dries quickly and the blanket of loose,
dry soil then checks evaporation,
drinks in sunshine, and becomes warm.
Watch your soil-its condition
should determine when to cultivate.
Do not let cracks form. They are
holes through which varuable moisture
eseapes. Do not cultivate when your
ground is dry or wet enough to form
large clods. Clods tie uip plant food
so that the corn roots can not use it.
Wr.tch Soil and Plants.
Do not waste cultivation. Cultiva
tion may be actually injurious when
soil is so dry and hard as to break
into large dry clods.
Failure to cultivate promptly when
it is needed to prevent the soil from
becoming cracked, hard, or weedy will
materially lessen the corn yield.
- In addition to wavchiing the soil,
watch the plants. Their progress de
termines how you should cultivate.
While the plants are small, culti
vate as deeply as the conadtion of the
soil makes necessary. If your sced
bed was not well prepared before
planting, deep cultivation when the
corn is smill is desirable. Get your,
soil into open condition so that the
corn roots can reach out for food.
After the. plants become a foot~
high, shallow cultivation only should
be given. The roots have spread out
close undl~er the surface oif the soil and
wvould he injured by deep) cultivation.
INever cultivate deeply close to corn
pllants after they are a foot high.
Such cultivation wvill break feeding
roots andl cause injmury to the plants.

When land and labor were abun
