page Tnnri FARM BUREAU NEWS Cut Alfalfa When New Shoots Start From Crown. Just when to .cut alfalfa and bow many times to harvest a crop in one season are questions which have received studied at tention from experts in the U nited States Department of Ag riculture and the various expe riment stations in alfalfa-producing states. Ordinarily it i3 a good time to cut alfalfa for hay when the new - shoots have started from the crown, and from one-tenth to one-fifth of the plant are in flower. But these two conditions do not al ways occur at the same time, However, the farmer with a lit tle experience, and keeping in mind the flower and new shoots, soon is able to tell when alfal fa crop should be tut. The far- mer's best judgment will be call ed into play, with preference given to the welfare of the plant rather than Ihe size of the crop. Experiments on Government plants seem to prove that cut ting is not essential to the wel fare of the plant, but is only a means of getting hay. Plants of alfalfa that have not been cut in six years are in better physical condition today than those that have been cut regu larly. Government agricultural experts lean strongly toward fewer crops of alfalfa a year, holding that as large tonnage can be secured, for example, with three as with four cut tings, and with les3 labor. Em phasis is laid on the necessity of leaving time enough after the last harvest to permit the plants to get a healthy growth, approximately 4 inches, before frost. at the State Fair and the ques tion of building a show and sales pavillion. "Go to Grass" is the terse an swer that W. A. Hock, the new county agent in Phelps county is making to farmers who be long to the County . Farm Bu reau there- Mr. Hock follows his statement up with a series of excellent arguments proving that the one great need of Phelps county farm lands is more grass and more lime. Meetings between grain grow ers and threshermen through out the state are resulting in reduced prices for threshing this year's grain yield. The prices agreed on in most places average from 6 to 8 cents a bu. There are 123. County Farm Bureaus in Texa3 now. . The commercial fertilizer a- gencies have started a well-di rected campaign to discredit the report of the American Farm Bureau Federation committee which made an investigation of the Muscle Shoals nitrate, plant project. The A. F. B. F. Com mittee has recommended to con gress that the Wilson dam be completed and the plant be put in operation by the government so that fertilizer can be supplied to farmers at cost. It was to be exepcted that the commerci al fertilizer companies would raise a howl and make every ef fort to prevent this competi tion. The American Cyanamid Company and the Press Service Co., both of New York, already have sent a number of reports into Missouri in an effort to create sentiment against the Muscle Shoals project.

S. Grain Growers, Inc., plans to do for the grain farmers namely, provide a method of marketing farm products that will return to the farmer a profit commen surate with his toil and investment.
