Unnecessary or misdirccted-cultiva-tion
is always a scriotis waste, but it
is particularly so when man power is
not adequate to crop requirements.
Make all labor count at full value.
In cultivating the corn crop say
spccialsts of the United States De
partment of Agriculture, use a two
row cultivator if possible. It consumes
only half as much man labor as a
one-row cultivator and only one
fourth as much as the half-row culti
vator or double shovel. '
Cultivate, when cultivation is need
ed, but refrain When it is not needed.
Cultivation may be a waste of time or
actually injurious under certain con
ditions. Cultivation by a hard-and-fast
rule is likely to do more harm than
good. Government corn specialists,
give the following general principles
as to time and manner of cultivating
Cultivation Has Three Objects.
There arc three main purposes of
cultivation to store moisture, to des
troy weeds, to warm the soil.
Keep the soil surface loose and
open This will let the rain soak in
quickly and reduce waste. In fair
weather it will prevent the subsoil
from drying out. A properly cultiva
ted 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 ancLcon
sumes plant food that should go to
make corn kernels instead of weed
seed. Destroy weeds when they ap
