HAY IN ROTATION.
By William P. Brook, Mis. Agricul
tural Exp. 8tation.
National Crop Improvement Service.
Commonly Krass follow wheat or
rye In rotation, but may be success
fully sown after spring rye or wheat,
but the most encouraging results will
follow from methods such as have
been proven by experiment. The
custom ha been to sow grass with
wheat in the autumn and to sow
clover when that Is used on the wheat
land early In the spring. This -nay
be h good plan but cannot be relied
After the wheat Is harvested, long
hot Bummers give the young grass
or clover plants a bard struggle.
To make the growing of grass most
profitable, separate preparation of
land and separate sowing of the grass
seed In the late summer or early fall
after the removal of the wheat crop,
Is by far the most promising method.
As soon as possible after the cutting
of the wbent, the stubble should be
disc harrowed and the surface put In
fine, mellow condition for one or two
Inches deep and should be occasion
ally re-harrowed through the summer
when the moisture content Is right,
and then heavily seeded with mixed
grass in the late summer.
COMMON WEEDS IN HAY.
Raymond Olny, of M. Rumely Com.
National Crop Improvement Servloe.
A considerable proportion of the
mowings of hay are Infested with
weed of different kinds. Among the
most common and troublesome are the
common white and yellow daisy, wild
carrot, sorrel, dock, buttercups, the
common plantain, dandelions, rutin-
weed, ragged robin and horsetail. The
methods to keep them In subjection
must be quite different In details for
the different weeds; but In general It
may be said that. If the soil Is kept
sweet by sufficient use of lime, and
well enriched, the condition will be
made so favorable for the growth of
the better grasses and the clover that
tb weeds will have relatively little
The grasses and the clovers, In th
struggle for existence which Is always
going on in the meadows, will prove
victorious. If weed lave a strong
growth the only method Is to reseed.
INSTRUCTIONS TO MAY INSPEC
TORS. National Crop Improvement Service.!
It Is the opinion of a large majority
of shippers that Inspectors are too
technical and stringent In the grad
ing of No. 1 Timothy. "Qood
color" should not be construed to
mean the same as "bright, natural
color," as used In describing Choice
Timothy. The words "good color"
should not exclude hay with brown
blades If In all other respects It Is
good enough for No. 1 Timothy.
Neither should these words exclude
bay with slightly brown heads If In
other respect good enough for No. 1
Inspectors should always bear In
mind that they should be arbitrators
between buyer and seller, and that
they should tuot unfairly favor either,
even though one Is present and the
other Is not.
ALFALFA STEM BLIGHT.
National Crop Improvement Service.
As a means of control for stem
blight of alfalfa it Is I jcommended
that the frosted alfalfa be clipped,
with the mower set low, as soon as
It Is reasonably certain that the dan
ger from late froets Is past This will
rid the plants of the diseased por
tions, and afford an opportunity for
the early growth of a new cutting.
It this Ij done la tlmo. the regular
nmcber of cuttings rhould be secured
with UtUe or no, 'loss la tonnage.
