BISMARCK DAILY TRIBUNE
GROW CLOVER SEED AT HOME
Necessary to Grow Something Besides
Small Grain Crops to Maintain
Per Acre Yield.
(By J. H. SHEPPERD. Dean and Profes
sor of Agriculture, Agricultural
College. North Dakota.)
People In North Dakota are becom
ing interested ln growing clover much
more than the most optimistic of us
had anticipated. The reason for this
is not far to search, as we find it nec
essary to grow something besides the
small grain crops to maintain our per
acre yield of grain. Weeds are crowd
ing in thickly and corn grown in
check rows Is proving the best field
means of keeping them down and at
the same time preparing the land
for immediate cropping with Bmall
grain. Wild oats are making heavy
Inroads and in the Red River valley
district we find that two years in
grass rids us of most of the oat seed
that is in the ground.
The growth of corn necessitates live
stock to put it in marketable form,
and the growth of live stock necessi
tates the growing of a hay crop and
pastures. Clover has made such an
excellent showing in the older part
of the state that we are becoming
quite encouraged with it as a crop.
One of the things which make our peo
ple hesitate to aow clover seed la the
fact that they must put in 16 pounds
to the acre of seed, which is costing
them about $2.50 per acre. A venture
of $2.50 per acre tor ssed of any sort
looks like quite an outlay and makes
the failure to produce a crop a serious
loss to the grower.
Another feature which has made our
people hesitate to invest in clover seed
is the fact that in some instances
they have obtained seed that had a
low growing strength and in others
bought Mammoth clover when they
asked for the medium red variety, and
in still other cases had clover Beed
delivered to them which contained the
serious weed pest known a* dodder.
All of these points make it almost
necessary for our people to grow
clover seed at home, as we are very
much easier able to see and know
what the seed is like which is grown
on a neighboring farm than we are
with that which has come from sev
eral hundred miles distant.
Every clover grower has been im
pressed with the fact that the heads
of clover are usually well filled with
seen when grown here, showing that
it has a disposition to give good re
turns to the man who will grow the
seed for market. Trials on the sta
tion farm at Fargo and the results of
the few farmers who have saved the
seed and threshed it In the state indi
cate that the yield of clover seed
will range from two to four bushels
A special precautionary arrange*
ment is necessary* in handling the
crop of clover from which seed is to
be secured. It does not naturally ripen
ln time' for the seed to be fully ma
tured and ready to thresh when it is
run through the machine. To avoid
this, it is necessary to cut the first
growth of red clover early, somewhere
from the 20th and 25th of June, in
stead of allowing it to come to the
blossoming stage, as is ordinarily
done when it is to be used as a hay
crop. The growth of clover is very
succulent in the latter part of June
and it is a very difficult matter to get
It cured into hay. It is early enough
in the season that the weather is not
very hot, and the stems are so full of
sap that it frequently requires much
work and entails much risk of spoil
ing the crop of hay. Some of our
farmers who have tried saving It have
given up the plan and simply allow it
to fall on the ground and act as a
mulch in the stubble.
If the seed Is the crop that is de
sired from clover land, it is, of course,
much better to let the first growth be
wasted than to have one-half, or even
one-third, of the seed too green to
shell out with the huller.
People who have come to North Da
kota from the middle or eastern states
have noticed that there are few bum
ble bees in the clover field as com
pared with those that they have been
accustomed to see at home. Charles
Darwin's philosophy relative to clover
blossoms being fertilised by pollen
which is carried by bumble bees has
made a deep impression on people
generally and many have taken the
absence of bumble bees as certain evV
dence that clover will not pield a pay
ing crop of seed in this country. This
has been thoroughly disproven as la
indicated by the yields which I have
The machine made especially for
clover hulling, known as the clover
huller, is the only satisfactory one
to thresh it Some have done reason
ably well by using the ordinary sepa
rator and making a special provision
for its pounding out the seed by put
ting in special concaves with rough
ened teeth and by running the straw
through the machine twice. Some of
our farmers have secured very high
yields per acre by this process, but
they tell me that they come far short
of getting all of the ripened seed
which their crop contained. I find
that in the older clover districts of
the middle states that they are con
vinced that it does not pay to attempt
to get along without a huller in
threshing that crop.
The *medium red variety of clover
has been the most popular with those
who have grown the different sorts
here, and I believe that the man who
will take pains to grow red clover
seed by following the directions that
I have given above will find that it
will amply repay htm for his trouble
and that the people of the state wilt
take all of the seed which he has te

BEACH ELEVATOR DECLARES
DIVIDEND OF 50 PER CENT
Beach, N. D., Aug. 9.—At the meet
ing of the directors of the Farmers'
elevator, the big discussion came on
with the proposal to declare a divi
dend, as it seemed difficult to fix the
amount. Some favored a dividend of
100 per cent, some 50 and others none.
Finally a motion was made to fix it
at 50 per cent, on which the aye and
nay votes seemed to be about the
same volume. The chair ordered a di
vision and declared the motion car
ried, the vote being 15 to 8. Later an
effort was made to have the vote re
considered, but it fell by the wayside.
The inhabitants of the Golden Val
ley have decided to petition the coun
ty commissioners for the segregation
of twenty-eight townships on the west
side of the county for the formation
of a new county, to be known as
Golden Valley. This territory Includes
townships 135 in ranges 105 and 106,
these being the townships included in
the petition now being circulated by
the people of the southern part of the
county, who are asking for the setting
off of thirty-six townships and the for
mation of a new county.
