BUT—
By RALPH MERCER
MY TEXT for this month's col
umn is "Count Your Blessings." It is
rather appropriate in that Thanks
giving is but a few days away. It is
prompted however, by an article
which came over my desk recently
titled "Crested Wheatgrass Is a Soil
Robber.'
magazine coming from an adjoining
state, but has probably been read
by many Montana producers.
Briefly, all plants are soil robbers.
If one wished to write of the sins
of our crop family rather than the
virtues, it could be done very easily.
This article is characteristic of so
many things that are being done in
reverse in this old world that it
merits comment.
We n Montana have always con
It was published in a
sidered crested wheatgrass as a god
send to our country. It is a drouth
resistant plant, it is a high protein
feed whether used for hay or pasture, y
it is palatable and where the stand
is kept thin enough it furnishes a
good volume of feed per acre.
Early Spring Pasture
It furnishes a large volume of
early spring pasture before our na
tive grasses are ready for use, and
in years when we have fall rains it
furnishes excellent fall pasture. Dur
ing our worst drouth years it fur
nished a cover for thousands of acres
of abandoned cropland. Most of these
acres were grazed or cut for hay in
a period when our ranges were strug
gling in a comeback from the early
drouth years of the 30s.
It has furnished much needed in
come in hay reserves, pasturing and
the production of seed.
Sure—there have been years when
it didn't have enough early spring
moisture to produce at capacity, but
it stayed in there pitching far better
than many other grasses. From Bul
letin 431 "Dry Land Pasture Experi
ments'
conducted at the Central
Montana Branch station, Moccasin,
under the supervision of Ralph M.
Williàms, all kind of virtues can be
assembled for crested wheatgrass.
are a compared
native grass and brome grass.
Wheatgrass furnished grazing about
two weeks earlier in the spring than
native and two weeks earlier than
the brome. It furnished 17 days more
grazing than native and seven days
more than brome. A comparison of
total gains in annual weight per acre
were 78.6, 36.9 and 54.4 pounds re
spectively, mi crested wheatgrass,
native grass and brome grass.
Crested wheatgrass may be a rob
ber, but for my chips it gives back
in the form of produce which can be
converted into cash much more than
it steals. Maybe we should have more
such robbers.
Grasses Heavy Nitrogen User*
Grasses are heavy users of nitro
gen. However, on our dryland soils
of Montana when only a limited
amount of plant food is available
each year, the results of such pro
duction are not damaging. The
amount made available for each crop
is dependent on the amount of mois
ture we have to help make these
available and to act as carriers
through the plant structure.
The crop yield reported in this
article I refer to showed a very low
yield on spring plowed crested
