C. ttting Rid of Weeds.
The problem of weed efudii'itiIon is
on,- i f ihe most sei'iOUS which con
fl'onl the fanners of Iowa and ad
joining states. Inning the lasi few
yours a method of killing weeds b is
been discovered which promises t<>
greatly lighten the annual toll which
tie- far.r pays to these pests. Tills
new moiled consists in spraying the
Woods with certain destructive UUP
'.erials known as herbicides. Some of
these herbicides, of which iron sill'
phate is the most promising, will kill
nearly all kinds of common weeds
without injuring the oats, wheat or
other crop in which they happen to he
growing. In fact, in several cases the ,
sprayed grain was thriftier mid yield \
cd mote than that which did not re
oolvo the treatment. This method Is 1
especially valuable for destroying mus
tard in grainlields and dandelions and
other weeds on la wns.
