* S SPRING OATS. *
Oats are one of the most lml)ort
ant grain crops in the United States.
They are by far the easiest of the
small grains to grow in the South.
Tn spite of their importance and the
ease with which they can be grown
no other grain crop is handled so
carelessly. The large increase in
acreage of fall-sown gi'ains in South
Carolina this winter is a Very en
couraging sign. Statistics just Issued
by U. S. Department of Agriculture
indicate all increase in, fall-sown oats
in South Carolina of 112 per cent,
and for tile entire South of 102 per
cent. No doubt many farmers have
sown all tile oats they wished to ill
the fall, and this is well for fall
oats are certainly best for , upper
South Carolina. But farmers are for
various reasons -planning to sow
spring oats, and it is for these that
this article has been prepared.
In tile search for data for the pre
parattion of this article tle writer was
lurprisOd at the scarcity of experi
mwental work done with spring oatsI
by the Southern experiment stations.
The acreage of th1e 114 crop of gatsi

t'hi9 debai'tineit At 4ifi000 aerts,

''his would indicate that there is im
portance enough in the spring oat
crop to warrant more attehtlio by
our experiment stations.
In looking over whht lilttl work
the experiment stations Int tie South
have done with sprifnk bats It has.
been found that thb results of all
tests show that It Is useless to sow
spring oats on Itnything but the very
best land. Trhe land , should be
thoroughly, not necessarily deeply,
prepared, and after sowing siould be
qo harrowed as to pernlit the oats
being cut. very low with the mowing
iaOhine, or binder, for spring oats
do not, as a rule, grow tall. If any
'ert PIiizer .or farl mlanilres are used
only the iclk acting k 111(1 shold he
applied for spring oats mature !n
about 116 days in tle South.
The (late of seeding depends Mun
the weather. All tests conducted 1-y
experiments favor early spring seed
Ing. Frosts or even hard freezes-af
ter the seed Is sown seldom injure
oats, so that they should -be sown just
as early in February as the weather
will permit. As a result of about 15
years' work the Alabama station ree
ommends about February 1st for
spring sowing. They 'found that the
best varieties are the Red Rust Proof
group, which inclu'des Rest Rust
Proof, Appler, Bancroft, Culberson,
Thaggard (or Cook), and Ilundred
Bushel. The Burt oat is also splendid
for spring sowing on account of its
Tests at the Arkansas station for
5 years showed the importance o;
early sowing. They found that the
poor yields of spring oats are' due to
lack of root development before dry
weather. Not only was the yield
greater from early sowings, but the
quality of the grain was far superior.
The quality and weight of grain
were found superior for the earlier
spring sowings by other Southeri
stations and by nuimerous tests at
Northern experinent stations were a
great deal of work has been done
*ith spring oats.
A very striking experiment show
Ing the great advantage of early sow
Ing was iade by the Tennessee sta
tion at Knoxville. In this test White
Russian oats 'eeded March 12 yield
ed 29.4 buishols, seeding April 2 yield
ed 22 bushels, and seeded April 2:
yielded 18 bushels per acr"
The rate of sce(ling sprint oats can
h6 -edelve too dareful consideration.
While the i1oi)OP rate datliads Oi a
numibe of eohdiMlOia it 18 i tad lan
tb sow plfitdi A eed. It Is a hignifi
ca1lt rtl that- in England andI Den
tbhAit where such enormous yields
're produced they sow from 4 to 0
bushels per acre. And, strange as it
may seem, the best quality of grain
is produced from thb heavier seeding.
This was found to be the case at the
Ohio Station where the great'est
yields were )Poduced from sowings
at the rat0 of '9 pecks pe' aere, but
the greatest, weight per bushel \
obtained from the heavier seedings,
up to 12 pecks per acre. At the Ar
kansas Station the yield of spring
oats increased as the qluantity of seed
sown per acre was increased' up to
its pecks, but the increase in yield
littlo more than paid for the extra
seed above 10 or 12 per acre. Th le
(irElaity of grain produced was best,
from the thickest seedings. All the
tests reported show that poor. fand
requires more seed than fertile land.
One of the factors governing tlt
rate of sowing is the size of the seed
and the care with whileh the seed ha,
been cleaned. rite Nebraska Station
found that owing to di ffren(e III
Weight and voluie of seed 8 peeks
of' Kherson, 14 peeks of 'iun, and 19
pecks of New Reliance oats produced
the same number of stalks per acre.
In applying the results noted in
this article from tests made at the
different experiment stations it will
be well for the farmer to take the
suggestion of Dr. A. C, True as given
in the Introductory note to each of
the Exiperiment Station Work sub
series of Farmers' Bulletins of the
U, 8, Department of Agriculture. lIe
