HEAVY SEEDED FLAX KILLS WEEDGROWTH Federal Experiments at Mandan Show 24 Pounds to Acre Should Be Planted Experimental plantings of flax at the U. S. Northern Great Plains ex perimental station, Mandan, show that the crop helps to control its own weed problem if the rate of planting is high enough. With a planting of about 24 pounds to the acre, the fields of flax yielded about a bushel an acre more at har vest than did fields planted at the rate of 16 pounds to the acre. More over. the extra eight pounds of seed provided more flax plants, and these helped to check the growth of weeds. Growers are urged to sow the flax DICK’S & ZERR’S Grocery 305 7th st.

If your case is abnormal, consult a competent physician at once and follow his advice. early in the season and sow more seed to the acre than many farmers have been accustomed to plant. The early planting in the first three weeks of May gives the flax a better chance to smother many of the weeds, and also brings the crop to the crit ical stage of growth at a time when moisture conditions are most likely to be favorable. The investigators also found that disking in preparation for seeding flax on corn stubble resulted in better yields than did spring plow ing of the corn stubble. Flax requires a rather firm seed bed. and on plowed fields the experimenters got a better stand if they used a packer after plowing and before seeding. 48 Hereford Bulls and Cows Will Be Sold at Mandan Public Auction Forty-eight registered Hereford cat tle. 37 bulls and 11 females, will be sold by the Patterson Land company.
