Red Clover and Timothy Should
Not Be Depended On En
tirely for Maximum Crops
No Perennial Hay Plant Will Produce
Well on Poor Sandy Soil Most
Grass Seeds Are Small and
Require Good Seedbed
Prepartd by the United States Depart
ment of Agriculture
While timothy and red clover un
doubtedly nre the best liny crops on
good soils In the northeastern quarter
of the United States they should by
no menns be depended on to produce
maximum yields of soils Other hny
crops nre better stilted nntl nre more
dependable In some cases and under
particular soil conditions Alslke clo
ver for esntnple Is better adapted to
sour and moist soils than common red
clover and the two mixed together and
seeded on some uplands often Insures
a crop where the latter seeded alone
would fall lteutop is the best wet
land grass and on such land a mixture
of red top meadow fescue and alslke
clover usually gives good returns
While no hay grasses can be depend
ed upon to make a commercial crop on
poor lond redtop orchard grass and
itall oats grass are better than any
others These nre facts discussed In
detail in Farmers Bulletin No 1170

In that section of the United States
north of and Including Tennessee and
east of central Nebraska Kansas and
the Dakotas Is found 8S per cent of

Eighty eight per cent of this acreage
is seeded to timothy and clover While
these two plants undoubtedly will con
tinue to hold the popularity they now
possess there nre n number of other
plants which though not so well
I known nre more desirable for pnrtlcu

of soil nnd climate The latter are
given special attention In the bulletin

In order to avoid losing the use of
land for art entire season nnd to per
mit late summer and cnrly fall seed
ing grass crops usnnlly follow small
grains The seedbed should be pre

grain Is harvested As a three Inch
mellow seedbed with firm soil beneath
will give better results for summer
seeding than one that Is deeper tne
disk harrow Is usually used In place
of the plow for prepnrlng lnnd for

small and must hnve a fine mellow
well pulverized surface soil In order
that the seedling mny become estab

Use Too Little Seed
Most fanners use too little grnss
evt for best results according to the
bulletin Itlch lnnd with a well-prepared
seedbed does not require ns
much seed ns thin lnnd or land poorly
fitted From 20 to 30 pounds of seed
per ncre are generally sufficient and
this rate Is usually more profitable
than lighter seedlngs of mixtures
Sinnll seeded grasses such or red top
nnd timothy do not require so heavy a
seeding as orchard grass or rye grass
Usually 10 pounds of timothy or 0
pounds of redtop are sufficient when
these arc seeded alone
In order thnt the seed may get n
good start It Is frequently advlsohle
to apply some readily available fer
tilizer Formerly the grain crop re
ceived the fertilizer but experiments
linvc demonstrated that when It Is ap
plied to the grass it will not only In
crease the yield of this crtv but fre
quently show beneficial effects on suc
ceeding crops for two or three yenrs
Top dressings of siiltnble mnnure will
Increase the yield of hny and there
Is probably no better crop than grass
on which to apply It A great deal
of grass and clover seed Is wasted
every ytar from seeding on sour ot
acid soils Applications of lime cor
rect this condition nnd should be mndi
particularly where legumes are to
be grown
Records Often Are Weans
Saving Working Costs
Farmer Enabled to Determine Num

Power Necessary to Produce
an Acre of Any Crop
A record kept of farm labor Iocs
not require mueh time yet It Is often
the menns of saving labor costs The
labor records show Just how much
labor and tenm work Is required on
each crop nnd the time In the season
when it Is used They should show
what proportion of the Inbor Is de
voted to work that produces an In
come nnd the nmmint that Is consumed
on odd Jobs of unproductive tasks
This will enable the fnrmer to de
termine the number of days of man

Vibration Tends to Loosen BolU Nuts

Need Tightening
AH screws and nuts on gas englne
should be kept tight The engine
should be gone over every day or so
when It Is used and all connections
tightened and all oil and dirt wiped
off Such practice will go far toward
preventing operating troubles since
all gns engines vibrate to some extent
