SEPTEMBER BEST MONTH FOR SOWING COVER CROI September is the best month oi the year for sowing cover crops according to E. C. Blair, exteosior “ agronomist at State College. The winter legumes which hav« real soil-building value in this State, he said, are crimson clover, vetch, and Austrian winter peas. The one to use depend* largely upon soil type and personal preference. Crimson clover should be sown at the rate of 25 pounds to the acre, while 20 pounds of vetch u enough for an acre. Thirty pound: of winter peas are needed to sow an acre thoroughly. Vetch and winter peas are bettei for light sandy soils, as they maj be sown deeper than crimson clovei and, therefore, will stand mon draught when coming up. Crimson clover is excellent foi sandy loams, clay loams, and cla) soils, but should not be sown wher the soil is unusually dry. Wait foi a good, season and sow the seed ver> shallow. To pridule a satisfactory crop Blair continued, the soil in whicl .1 i _ t_. _ illCdC icguiuta aib w uw b "L should be inoculated, either natur ally or artificially. Blair pointed out that soybear and cowpea hay should be mowr in September. Soybeans should b< cut as soon as the pods begin tc form, and cowpeas are ready foi mowing as soon as blooming is wel under way. Allow the hay to wilt slightly it the trough, then rake it into wind rows. After a few hours, put in uf on a rack, either the tripod forir or poles with cross pieces at differ ent heights to provide ventilation If thf stacks are made properly he continued, the hay may be left out for a month or more and b< fairly well cured. "Don’t wait too late to cut th< beans and peas,” he urged, “or yot will get beans or peas and straw rather than hay.” 30 GREAT COMICS The world’s greatest comics— always 30. sometimes more, bui never fewer, will be found in Thi BALTIMORE AMERICAN even Sunday.
