Weak Wheat-How to Help It
"Winter wheat in bad condition" is
the Keneral report of the condition of
this important cereal throughout the
Middle West States. A largo percentage
of tho millions of acres devoted to this
crop is reported to bo weak and to have
been severely injured by adverse winter
ing conditions. In many places tho
ground is baking, and still further in
Jury is threatened. Such serious condi
tions call for immediate action.
The farmer knows that tho wheat
plant requires heat, air, moisturo and
available plant food in order to live and
make satisfactory growth. The lack of
any ono of these essentials means death
to tho crop. As tho warm sun of spring
beats upon tho hardened wheat fields, it
causes the evaporation of hundreds of
barrels of water per day from a 50-acro
field, because the water connection bo
tween tho surface soil and tho water'sup
ply below is completo. Now, to stop
this evaporation, and to allow air to enter
into the soil spaces, tho farmer must act
quickly if ho is to save his crop.
lie should roll his wheat field as soon
as it Till bear a team upon it, and fol
low this rolling immediately with a light
harrowing. If he has a "weedor" ho
can accomplish a great deal of good by
going ovor tho wheat crop with this tool.
If ho has harrows with adjustable teeth,
ho should throw those teeth back at an
angle of -J5 decrees and harrow the field,
going back and forward over tho field
parallel with tho wheat rows. This
harrowing will not stir tho surfaco deep
enough to injure the wheat -roots, but
will holp tho soil conditions greatly by
preparing a surface.mulch will breakup
tho water connection in tho soil and
effectively prevent an injurious amount
of evaporation. Always follow rolling

a roller, or if ho docs, not think it wiso
to roll tho wheat, ho can help the weak
wheat crop a great deal by careful har
rowing. The tiny wheat plant needs special
nourishment. It should have' an abun
dance of ready available plant food of
the right kind to give it a vigorous start
and maintain it in vigorous growth.
Such help can be supplied by broadcast
ing 100 to 300 lbs. per acre of a fertilizer
analpzing about 3 to 5 Ammonia;
C to 8 Phosphoric Acid, ane 5 to
7 Potash. This should bo broadcast
od or distribuied on the wheat through
tho fertilizer attachment of tho wheat
drill. If the wheat drill is used, of
course, the disks will be left suspended
so that they will not cut tho young
wheat plant. This fertilizer should bo
put on tho wheat just beforo it is rolled.
The harrowing will work it into tho soil.
The above operations can be carried
on even until tho wheat is up 4 inches,
without injury o the crop. This prac
tice is common among European wheat
If grass and clover seed is sown upon
the wheat field in early Spring, practice
of this early cultivation will bury the
seed sufficiently deep to insure good
germination. Tho addition of available
plant food in the forms mentioned, will
greatly increase tho chances of a suc
cessful "catch or grass."
By such treatment, weak wheat will
be greatly benefited and materially as
sisted towards a profitable yield of
superior quality of grain. Henry G.

An amateur gardener has furnished us
with the following information, which
may come in handy this time of year.
Ho says in putting in potatoes, it is best
to plant onions alongside, as the latter
will bring tears to tho oyes of the pota
