in localities with a long season have
observed that early and late plantings
of the same variety usually show wide
differences in growth and number of

general, com which Is needed early
requires a longer time to come up than
that which is planted later. The plants
also grow more slowly, are shorter,
and bear their ears lower. These are
commonly observed effects of the date
Best Yields From Early Seeding.
Studies recently have been made by
the United States Department of Agri
culture at the Arlington experimental
farm near Washington, D. (, in order
to obtain data which would supplement
that obtained earlier at the various
state experiment stations. Numerous
experiments have been conducted by
the state agricultural experiment sta-,
tions to determine the influence of
the different dates of planting on corn
yields. The state experiments re
viewed indicate that the best yields
of grain may be expected from the
early seeditigs and the most rapid de
velopment and greatest growth from
the later seedings. Neither the ex
tremely early nor the very late plant
ings are desirable.
The department investigation? were
directed more to a study of the effects
upon growth and development than
to determining the most desirable date
of planting from the standpoint of
yield. The results of these studies,
which extended over a five-year period,
are presented in Department Bulletin
No. 1014, Effect of Date of Seeding
on (termination. Growth, and Develop
ment of Corn, by E. B. Brown and
II. S. Garrison, which may be had
upon application to the department.
The varieties of corn used in the
experiments cover a wide range in the
length of the growing season required.
Tim data tabulated are limited to the
characters that seem to have been
consistently affected, although the
points studied Included the rapidity
of germination, the number of days
from emergence to ripening, the height
of stalks, the number of ears per plant,
the average weight of ears, the average
yield per plant, and the number of
In all the experiments the germina

the date of seeding occurred later.
When sown early the short-season
northern varieties came up sooner than
the varieties from the central and
southern states. When sown later

May. The total growth was least and
rate of growth slowest from the April
seeding. Development was more rapid
in the later than in the earlier seed
ings. The number of ears per stalk, the
size of the ear. and the amount of
stickering bore no conKtent relation
to the date of seeding. The pollen
shedding period was longer in plants
from the early seedings than in those
from the later seedings. Seedings
earlier than normal resulted in slight
gains in the date of silking.
These experiments corroborate The
conclusions of the state experiment
stations, that corn may be planted in
the vicinity of Washington and oilier
localities with a similar season, any
time after May 1, without danger of
the seed rotting. The best conditions
of soil and atmosphere usually come
between May 10 and May 'JO.

TEST SEEDS BEFORE SOWING
Of Big Advantage to Farmer to De
termine Purity and Germination
of Various Grains.
Whether the seed is for sale or for
his own use on the farm, the farmer
will find it to Ids advantage to test
his seed, or have it tested, for purity
and germination. In making a purity
test, according to the United States
Department of Agriculture, it Is cus
tomary to determine the percentage of
pure seed, inert matter such as dirt,
chaff, and broken seeds, and foreign
seeds, including weed and other kinds.
A sample is taken varying in weight
from 1 to 100 grams or more (a tea
spoon for the clovers and small-seeded
grasses, a tablespoon for the grasses,
and a considerably larger amount for
cereal grains), depending upon the
size of the seed being examined. For
the germination test usually two lots
of 1K) seeds each are placed on or
between blotting paper, canton flan
nel, or such material, and kept in a
room or chamber at a temperature of
(JO degrees to SC) degrees F. for
to US days, depending upon the kind
of seed being tested.
Samples for purity and germination
tests may be sent to the seed labora
tory of the United States Department
of Agriculture at Washington. D. C,
or to the nearest branch seed labor
