* OtEWV WHEAT *
Treat Seed For Smut *
There $ no good reason .why more
wheat :should not be grow-'n in Lau
rens ounty. It is true that wheat can
not be grown here in compeCtilloni with
the Central States. However, we
shoutld grow wheat to supply our local
noeds. The growing of wheat will lit
in well with a system of crop rotation,
.a1nd crop rotation .is one of the essen
tials for boll wevi! control.
To got good rcalt. fromn wheat a
comparatively rertile soil must be
ulsed. Te seed be- shoutel b: thor
oughly pulverized, and nwell settled by
draggiug anl rolling. III order to
get good results from wheat, it will
be necessary to fertilize. About one
tonj of groiund lime stonte to the acre
will favor wheat. This should be ali
-l)led about two weeks before plant
inig, but fair results can be had with
out 'tie lime. The following fertiliz
ers should be applied at planting time:
250 lbs. acid phosphate, about 25 lbs.
fpotash salts, and '25 lbs. nitrate of
soda. Another application of soda- at
rate of 50 or 75 lbs. to acre should
be applied in March as a top dressing.
Stable 'manure applied on the 3ald
at planting tine will be a great help
in making wheat.
The following is a desirable rota
tion to use, from the satidpoi-at of
growing wheat and controlling the
boll 'weevil: First year, cotton. The
cotton stalis plowed under early and
wheat sown. Second year, wheat, fol
lowed by cow 'peas or soy beans to be
cut for hay. Third year, corn and vel
vet beans. Beans and oirn stalks pas
tured in winter and turned under in
early uping for cotton.
The best time to sow wheat is as
soon as possible after the first frost
As we have had our JIrst frost, %we
should begin sowin.g wheat now. The
olbJect in sowing wheat after frost is
to avoid the ravages of the Hessian
fly. When the seed are town by drill,
which is decidedly the best method,
about five pecks of seed to the acre
.will be sufilcient, but. if sown broad
cast about seven pecks of see- per
acre .will usu'ally give better results.
The Blue Stem and Leaps Prolific are
the .varieties usutlly recommended for
this section. The Fulcaster is A beard
ed variety that usually does nwell.
Smut is one of the serious diseases
that attacks wheat, and it can be con
trolled by treating the seed before
planting. Use one pint of formalin or
formaldehyde to 40 gallons water, or
three table spoons of formaldehyde to
five gallons of water. The seed may
.be either dipped in this solution and
removed immediately, or the seed may
be spread out on the floor and splin
gled with the solution, care being tak
en to moisten every seed. Bags should
be moistened in the solution and laid
over the seed 2 hours. If the seed are
not to be planted immediately they
should be dried thoroughly. These di
rections should be followed carefully,
or disaippoinmtnet may result.
Sowin'g on ferti-le, well drained up
land soil and the use of early maturing
varieties of wheat are 'the most suc
cessful methods for comnbatting the
rust, which Is the most serious dis
ease that we have to. contend with.
