"The "five bushels which won the
prize was grown, at an altitude of 4,
900 feet where the rainfall does not
exceed 17 to 18 Inches. One crop
has been produced on the land before
we seeded it to this Turkey Red
wheat, the seed for which came from
the Gallatin valley," said Nash.
"We summer tallowed the land in
1911 by plowing with a mould-board
plow not less than six inches deep
In the last part of May and first of
June. We dragged It down as soon
as possible after \pHowlng, tbe idea
being to preserve the moisture by
dragging within two days after plow
ing or sooneP. ""After any rainfall of
consequence the grbund Was dragged
as soon as lt :iwro possible to get
onto It with a team.
"About the first of July -we double
disced the field. The last of August
and the first week of September, It.
was dragged and ^tlien the. Seed was
planted by drilling with a double disc.-'.
Kentucky drill which put It down at
least four Inches. Forty: pounds of
seed was used to the acre and we
prefer less rather than more than this
amount If the land Is.-strong-and
clean it -will not require this amount
"With such methods, of farming the
moisture Is preserved sufficient, to
start the seed to germinating lijfiSie
dlately whether there' is rain or not
"In the spring of 1912 the field was
harrowed, or dragged as soon asJ the
land was dry eno«t£h to permit it
Once or twice later we dragged it.
