i CLEMSON EXTENSION WORK I'
Tho Importance of planting cover
crops in our orchards is being more
I fully appreciated each year, yet in
so. of the principal fruit districts
of th" south we find many large or
chards whore no cover crops have
been planted. Tho result Is the soil
I in these orchards is becoming more
improvcrishod each year by the leach
ing of soluble fertilizers by surface
j washing and for want of humus, in
most cases the orchards are located
on the more elevated laud which Is
hilly or rolling with sandy soil ami
clay sub-soil. On such soil it is hard
to prevent surface washing entirely,
hut is could he reduced to (he mini
mum by the proper use of cov er crops.
Not only do these cover crops prevent
surface washing, hut they utilize the
soluble fertilizers which would other
wise leach out of tile soil. When tho
crop is turned under, it adds consid
erable humus to the soil and the fer
tilizers required to prod;:;-;- it becotuo
available lor the use of the trees. The
plants used as cover crops are of two
distinct types, leguminous and non
leguminous plants. The legumes,
such as clover, eowpeas and vetch, in
addition to furnishing humus have
the power of collecting nitrogen from
I the air and adding this valuable fer
tilizer to the soil for the use of other
plants. The non-leguminous plants,
such as rye. oats and turnips, do not.
collect nitrogen from the air hut when
sown in the early fall consume soluble
plant food during their growth which
would otherwise he lost by leaching
and which is returned to the soil when
the cover crop is plowed under in the
spring. Most soils where orchards
are planted are deficient in both hu
mus and nitrogen ami therefore a leg
uminous cover crop should be selected.
If die trees make sufllcieut growth
without tin' use of nitrogen fertilizers
then a non-leguminous cover crop
may he planted.
T think I am safe in saying, howev
er, that there are few commercial or
chards in the south that are not in
need of both nitrogen and humus. To
accomplish our purpose of adding ni
trogen and humus to the soil and to
prevent surface washing, we should
have both a winter and summer crop, j
Rye followed by eowpeas will glvo
best resuts on poor soil. The rye
should be sown In the early fall in or
der that it may cover the ground as
soon as possible and prevent surface
washing. The rye. should be turned
under not later than the last of March.
This may be accomplished by doublt;
harrowing with the disk harrow and
this method is preferable to plowing
as it avoids the danger of plowing too
deep near the trees. A strip of land
six to tui feet wide between the rows'
of trees should he prepared and the
peas sown broadcast about the Ii est
of May. I'Jarly In September the pea
vines should be worked into the soil J
by means of a disk harrow and the
land can be seeded to rye or crimson
After or:0 or two crops of rye and
peas have been worked into the soil,
crimson clover or hairy vetch may be
sown instead of rye. Crimson clover
makes an excellent cover crop from
September to May. As soon as enough
seed have ripened to reseed itself, the
clover should be worked into the soil
with a disk harrow. If the clover Is
allowed to occupy all the space be
tween the rows of trees during tho
months of March and April, it wlU
retard the growth of trees to some ex
tent, and therefore I think it best to
turn under the clover early In March.
My plan Is to fertilize and cultlvato
the trees early In March, leaving a
narrow strip of clover in the middle
to reseed itself. A strip two to three
feet wide will produce enough seed
for the entire middle. After the seed
have ripened, the clover is worked In
to the soil with a disk harrow anil
the land may be smoothed and tho;
seed scattered over the entire middle
by means of a tooth harrow. Hairy
vetch Is an excel b ut cover crop em
may be treated in the same way as
crimson clover. The .seed are sown
in August or September and the crop ;
worked into the soil in tho spring.
It crimson clover or hairy vetch lb'
to he planted on land whore neither
of those crops has grown before, it
will be necessary CO Inoculate tho
(leid by securing soil from land wher4
vetch and clover have previously
grown. This soil may bo scattered
over the land in the same way as fer
tilizer immediately after sowing the
seed, and then mixed with the soil and
need by means of a tooth harrow.
Wheat, oats, and barley make good
Cover crops, but they do not thrive on
poor land as well as rye.
In no case should grain be allowed
to maturo in the orchard as it would
rob the trees of moisture and plant,
food at the very time they needed them
most. When a good crop of eowpeas,
vetch or crimson clover Is added to
the soil, we are at the same time great
