CULTIVATION USUALLY PAYS Stimulates and Invigorates th* Trees Causing Them To De velop a Deep Root System. Orchard culture and methods will depend on size or age of tcees. nature of root growth, and the kind of season, whether rainy or dry, and the type c* soil in which the trees are growing, pays B. Szymoniak, associate horli rulturist, Extension Division, Louisi ana State University. Generally it is advisable to cultivate the young orchard in the same manner that 1 gardc-n is cultivated. A good practice therefore would he to st«, it the homo orchard in the home garden. The young trees must be protected from injury while plowing. This is dona hy placing fence posts on either side of the trees and by keeping two fe^t away from the trees while cultivating the soil with horse implements. Un the upland type of soil It is b^st to give level cultivation. If the young orchard is not grown in the garden, or if r.o garden crops are grown in the orchard, it should be planted to cow pens or soybeans dut ing the month of June, planting them in rows which should be cultivated. Fig trees grown under orchard conditions should not be cultivated, but the soil around the roots should he heavily mulched witn pine straw and leaves or other coarse material. This Is done for the reason that fig trees have a very shallow root system and the trees will not do ('.veil if t*.o roots ar<* disturbed. Tho nu'ch should not be piled up around the in's.; of the trees but should be applied at least two feet away from the ba e. In growing trees in alluvial soil where the water table is close to the surface it is necessary to plant the trees on wide ridges with water fur rows between the rows to drain off t lio surplus water. Under Louisiana conditions, except In the case of pear trees, which should not be cultivated, it is seldom advis able to grow fruit trees in sod or to allow the grass to establish itself la she home o"churd because the grass makes a very rank growth and prob ably exci;»d>s the .air from the soil. U also cnn ;e.i the trees to develop toots t lose to the surface where they are unfavorably influenced by exces ,-tvo heat, moisture and drouth. Cul tivation stimulates and invigorates the trees, causing them to develop a deep root system. The roots of the trees are the foundation of the tree» and must he prop« rly cared for by pioper cultivation. After the orchard has come into bearing it is best not to give it as intensive cultivation as is given the young orchard, but a definite system must be followed depending on local conditions. The system that has given good results in practice is to plant eowpens or soybeans, broadcast or in rows, during the month of June or July to be plowed under in the'fall and the soil planted to a winter cov >r crop of rye or barley. This can be pastured by sheep or calves during the winter provided the trees are not injured. Cattle should never be allowed in an orchard unless the trees are protect ed. The winter cover crop is plowed under in the spring and the on hard disced or harrowed two or three times, depending on the season. Then cow peas or soybeans are again pi ante-l during June or July. This system can be followed not only in the homo orchard where the trees are mature but it can be practiced also in pecan orchards with good results. Cultivation is one of the most im portant factors in growing trees. By cultivation the roots are given proper soil conditions for best development. Good fruit and healthy leaves as well as branches depend on the root system which feeds them. Therefore the root* system Is the foundation on which tha life of the tree depends and must toe properly cared for by cultivation in ac cordance with the demands of each kind of tree grown. Cultivation keeps the trees in a vigorous fruiting condb \ K I tion and enables the trees to resist iiy «eels ?.rd diseases.
