As to Planting Corn on Poor
BY T. H. CASANOVA
There are numbers of farmers
in the parish that are expecting to
plant a crop of corn on land that
will not produce the minimum of
nineteen bushels of corn per acre.
Besides being a poor paying pro
position in crop returns, this pro
ceedure is a most destructive one
to the well fare of the returns of
the next cropping season. In
stead of having the consolation of
knowing that the land will be better
the succeeding year for a paying
crop the balance is to the contrary
in crop returns and in the pros
pective crop returns of the next
What then should be done to
remedy this condition where the
land will not in returns for break
ing, cultivation and harvesting of
corn? This is a vital question to
every thinking farmer who has the
welfare of the increasing of the
fertility of his farm so as to pro.
duce larger, rather than smaller
yields per acre each succeeding
year. First of all the average
farmer has gotten his land in this
condition by the deliberate selling
of his land each year piece meal,
in his cane, cotton, or rice crop
with no effort of on his part to re

has taken from his soil? You can
not get something for nothing is
an adage that has to do especially
with the farmer and his method
of dealing with the fertility if his
farm. Too many farmers are con
tented to follow an old system of
acratching the soil each year with
no feed and expecting in return a
smile of bountiful harvests from
their worn tired and ill kept acres
We have got to pay the price
either in returning to the soil his
lost fertility in manurse and legu
minous crops, or in the long run
in poorer yields each year with in
creased cost of production and final
failure in the farming business?
The man who feeds his land is the
man who leads "both in the great
er crop each year and in the pro
ductive capacity of his soil.
When land is too poor to yield
adequate returns in corn it is ne
cessary to plant peas, peanute, soy
beans, lespedeza, clover, or other
soil building crops until the land
is strong enough to make the pay.

planting corn on the same land
