DRY FARMING IN SANPETE.
The Dcscret Farmer is in receipt
of sonic samples of very fine wheat,
forwarded to us by Mr. Ersslus Pet
erson, a former student of the writ
er's. -Mr. Peterson is in charge, Of
some irrigation invostigntions for the
Utali Experiment Station, and while
engaged in this work has had occa
sion to observe the results of some
work in dry farming hi Sanpete coun
ty. Mr. Dnntel Whitbeck has a farm
located in 41 pretty little cove about
seventeen miles northwest of Gun
nison, in a piece known as Flat Can
yon. Mr. Peterson visited this farm
in company with Mr. Whitbeck and
was very much surprised to find ms
beautiful a field of grain as he has
ever seen, and surprising to say it is
the first rop on new land. Last year
Mr. Whitbcck's neighbor, Mr. L. F.
Becker, raised) 38 bushels per acre on
ivcw land, while another neighbor
J Mr. Sylvester Pierce, raised 43 bush
els per acre, this however, being o.n
land that hnd been under cultivation
1 for some time.
Mr. Whitbeck has been studying
arid farming for the past four years,
and MV. Peterson concludes from the
results, that Mr. Whitbeck has a good
understanding of the methods em
ployed. 'The land he has in prepara
tion for fall seeding, is in splendid
condition. He is using the latest cul
tural methods, nd is following as
closely as possible the directions
mapped out by our scientific agri
culturists and bulletins. Mr. Whit
bock has spent eight years of his life
in Mexico, two years in Canada, and
has traveled clear across the eonti-
nent from the Atlantic to the Pa
cific, and from Chnada to Mexico.
I To our representative, Mr. Whitbeck
said, "I Imvc seen in my travels some
very beautiful and productive coun
try, yet in all my experience T luive
, never seen a place better suited for n
typical farm life than is to be found
1 in Utah."
1 Mr. Peterson also sent us some
1 sample of wheat from Mr. L. F.
Becker's farm, these heads measur
ing over ?:v inches in length, mid
1 giving vidc ice of wonderful growth,
tit us the work done by the Experi-
' ment Station in behalf of arid farm-
ing is bearing fruit. It is only . mat-
ter of a short time until there will 1
be a general understanding of the 1
methods employed in conserving Uie J
moisture, and when that time comes jj
there will Lmt no Utah deserts. U
PLANT TURKEY RED WHEAT.
The College Pure Food company is
in receipt of the following letter from
the Inter-Mountain Milling company.
As it contains a business proposition
which it may be well for mill wheat
growers of the valley to look into, we
offer it for their consideration refer
ringthem for further information to
the company at Salt Lake City. '
Salt Lake City, Utah, June 25, '08.
College Pure Food Company:
Gentlemen. We expect to ship a
car of Turkey Red wheat from- Kan
sas which we will sell or exchange
with farmers at actual cost. We are
particularly anxious to get this grade
of wheat started in Utah and Idaho
for a number of reasons.
In the first place there arc large
quantities of Kansas flour shipped to
markets that Utah mills should sup
ply, simply because of the quality of
the wheat that the Kansas flour i-
manufactured from. This Turkey
Red wheat can be growtt successfully
in this country as a number of farm- j
crs have and arc growing it and arc
very much pleased both with the
quality and the yield. Bcsid'cs this Jt j
is highly recommended 'by the Agri
cultural College. I
Perhaps the strongest argument in
favor of this wlrcnt is that mills in
Kansas and other eastern states that
grind the Turkey Red wheat arc able 1
to ship their flour into all western
markets where the local flour is made
from white or soft wheat and they .al
ways com mn lid much higher prices.
Three things arc essential for good
crops:
First. Ground well prepared:
Second. Good, clean seed.
Third.. Rotation of crops.
These Hire things, if practiced, un
remittingly will assure good results.
This car of seed we are shipping
from Kansas will be of the very bests
quality and wc cannot urge too
strongly the importance of farmers
in this section growing this kind of
wheat. This will enable us to shut
