Weather conditions lu Kentucky
this summer und early this fall
bVB beeh such that farmers of the
tto should hare no trouble In
gathering plenty of first class seed
corn, according to B3. N. Fergus, a
member of the tfoilt and crops de
partment of the Kentucky Agrlcul
tural Experiment 8tation. The big
test seed corn problem right now Is
to get the grain dried out and stored
In a good place before treeitng
weather comes. Much valuable
time that would be lost In making
extra germination tests In the
spring can be saved by taking a lit
tle time now to make sure that seed
corn is properly stored.
"The important point In storing
seed corn Is to place the ears where
(air can circulate around each one
of them and at . the same time to
I make them safe from rata nd mice.
On the average farm, about the on
ly way to protect stored seed trom
those pests Is to hang It in the top
of cribs, slieds, attics or dry base
ments. The ears can be strung on
hinder twine or hangers can be
made of wire fence. If desirable,
wire hangers can be bought at rea
There are various ways of storing
seed to provide ideal drying condi
tions, such as shelves, drying-racks
and pofts studded with nails upon
I which th ears are stuck. The chief
i requirement is to have plenty of
space between the ears so that they
enn be done dry before freezing
weather. There is not much danger
of Injuring the germination of the
seed by storing it In a room that is
kej.t at a temperature of 70 degrees
