THE WILLIAMSON PLAN. *
It is a very Btrotig case against the
Williamson plan that is presented by
The Progressive Farmer. There Is no
doubl thai the Williamson plan will
produce more corn, it Beems, but the
expense for fertilizing is so great that
the profit is not Increased. And a hi?
crop is no better than a small crop
i! the profit be the same
The question, says tin* Progressive
Partner, Is would not the sann' amount
af fertilizer make as much or more
coi n if cultivated by ordinary methods
instead of the Williamson method?
This question the Progressive Farmer
endeavors to answer by tin* results
of actual tests, made side by side.
Ol Hie new and old methods.
The tests cited are as follows:
'I he first BUCh test we heard of was
made by Mr. J. C. Strlbling, Pendle
ton. S. ('. Mr. Strlbling is one q| the
!>est farmers in the stat and his
trial showed a loss of six bushels per
acte by following the Williamson plan
I b !0 in pa red With the same amount
Of fertilizer and the ordinary plan of
Next came the Alabama station
tests for I90C. Result: one bushel
more per aero by Williamson plan.
Then came the South Carolina ex
periment station tests for 1007, the
mosi exhaustive, searching and thor
oughgoing over made, the results be
ing as follows:
t'l In it test of nineteen different
plots under all soi ts of conditions ami
experiments, the average yield per
..ce on Williamson plan plots was
4.28 bushels less than oil other plots.
(2) A variety test was made with
a number Of different kinds of corn,
and the result here was that tiro Wil
liamson plan plots averaged t).t> bush
els less per acre than ordinary CUl.
(.") A test was made using -ten
pounds of fertilizer with ordinary cul
tlvation and 1,425 pounds with the
Williamson plan. The result here was
Hint the increased yield by the extra
fertilizer was only fj.tjH bushels per

Held. Using no fertilizer in either
:ase, the ordinary plan made one-tlftll
bushel more than the Williamson
plan; using 900 pounds of fertilizer
jn each case, the ordinary plan made
4.fi bushels more per acre than the
r ? xt in order to be absolutely fair.
Jot us give the Charleston station
t.iists. 1907, Here the experiments
were not properly made for compari
son, as the Williamson plan had II,
oila stalks per acre ami the ordinary
plan 2.-I?0, The results showed that
it took 158 Williamson stalks to make
a bushel and only ill ordinary stalks
1.0 make a bushel, but the corn being
so thinly planted on the ordinary plot
caused the yield to be twenty-nine
bushels greater for Williamson plan.
Fifthly we have the Alabama sta
tion tests. I!UI7. concerning Which 1)1
rector Dllggar writes as follows:
"The Williamson plait in its pure ami
original form made a much smaller
yield than was made through an equal
application of fertilizer by the com
mon method. Indeed, every varia
tion from the Williamson method af
forded a larger yield than did the
Williamson method Itself."
The sixth ami lasts tests to COlUC to
our attention are those reported by
Mr. w. u. 101 Holt, demonstration
