Tillage. the year's rainfall lss than eleven inches, the wheat plats at the North Platto experiment sta tion yielded over thirty bushels per acre. This was due to tho practice of summer tillage, by which tho rainfall of the year bofore had been stored for the uso of the next year's crop. It takes double time to make a crop by this method, but not doublu expense. While two years' cultivation is re quired, there is of course only one seeding and ono harvesting. In a bul letin just issued the practice of sum mer tillage is highly recommended for western Nebraska. The average yields at the station are more -than double the nvorago yield in humid sections anywhere- in tho country. If theso av erages can be maintained on a farm scale this western Nebraska land is worth as much for wheat growing, aero for ucro, as tho land further east. Lincoln Journal.
