A VALUABLE FARM IMPLEMENT
The Disk Harrow Leads Other imple
ments in Usefulness.
George M. Logan, Indianapolis, Ind.
If properly understood and used, no
better Implement can be used on the
larm than a good disk harrow. This
information has been gained by act al
e-~xperience in the field and from e x
pisriebce of the best farmers.
Fair sowing oats broadcast .there Is
ao better way than to disk the ground,
thIka siow the oats and disk the ground
again. "The better the seed bed, the
betiter .the crop," is an old adage an~d
that is why it pays any farmer to-disk
his, ground before sowing the oats.
All good farmers know that if they
properly prepare ~their corn ground
before planting, they not oily raise a
-better crop, but less, cultivation is re
quired after the crop is planted. Disk
the ground before plowing, is a good
plan to follow with any condition of
soil. Suppose the groun'd is corn, stub
the disk successfully cuts the
ea1Jving them on the ground
as a fertilizer as well as serving the
purpose of keeping the ground loose.
When plowed, this loose dirt is turn
ed under, and when disked again, a
good seed bed as deep as the furrow
Suppose the ground is a heavy blue
grass or timothy sod; if disked well
before plowing, it will plow' better, the
sod will lie fiat and not stand up on
edge causing dry spots on which the
corn will not grow or be a bother in
after-cultivation. A meadow of blue
grass, timothy, or alfalfa that has
become "sod-bound" can be pilaced in
proper condition better by the use of
-the disk harrow than by the use of any
Very often the ground is dry enough
to allow the top to be wor'ed one or
two Inches, but is too wet to be plow
ed; by disking this ground can be put
In proper condition for plowing much
sooner and the seed bed will also be
Improved. A seed bed which has
been prepared, but which has since
been packed down by heavy ra~lns,
can be put in better condition, with
less expense and time, with the disk
barrow than with any other imple
The question of size Is important.
Whether it should be a four, five, six,
seven, or an eight-foot harrow depends
entirely upon the condition of the soil
and the amount of horse power at the
farmer's command. Whether the disk
blades should be si-xteen, eighteen, or
twenty Inches in diameter is another
matter. Of these three, the 16-inch is
th r size, for it will disk the
gh~round fiv~and one-half or'six inches,
which is as deep as practical, and it
will cut the ground better and easier
andu has less draught than the larger
sizes. A disk is not a wheel running
over the ground and carrying a load
like a wagon; It is a plow, or a spade,
cutting and turning the soil..
To better illustrate, draw three cir
eles, one sixteen inches, one eighteenr,
and one twenty inches in diameter;
then draw a straight line across each
of them,-say four inches from the
edge: which one of these three circles
will require the most weight to put It
In the ground up to the line? Which
one will have the larg"st body ot dirt
to move at one revoktion? Which one
will stir the ground best on acceount of
speed? Then consider that on the disk
-harrow there are eight, ten, twelve
fourteen or sixteen of these circles
Look Eat it .from another standpoint
Does not the front wheel of a wagon.
when loaded equally, cut depper in the
ground than the hind wheel, and does
it not break or cut a rail in two that
the hind wheel will almost jump over
The 20-inch disk harrow is some
times unsatisfactory and the farmer
who has made the mistake of investing
In a harrow not adapted to his sail gets
an entirely wrong opinion of i'ts use
fulness. The' owner of a good disk
harrow finds it the best Implement
that can be used on the farm.
