Lutz, Clerk GROW BUCKWHEAT OK POORER LAND WHI Survive and Give Fair Re turn on Soils Too Thin for Other Crops. MTR06EN IS BI6 ESSENTIAL Car« Mutt Be Ex.rcia.d in Applying Material, aa Crop la Subject to Lodging ip Seatons of Abundant Rainfall. Since buckwheat is considered a "poor land'' crop, it will survive and often give a fair return on land too poor for corn, oats and clover, many farmers have discovered. Buckwheat requires considerable ni trogen for its maximum growth. Even though its period of growth comes at the season when the soil is furnishing available nitrogen most rapidly, still on very poor soils a light application Sp' & ' '«y-y. v ... v 7 11 " ijiTMjiiii SS* mmm Buckwheat Is an Excellent Crop for Poor, Thin Lands, Climatic Condi tions Being Favorable. of farm manure or a little nitrogenous fertilizer is desirable. Care is neces sary in supplying nitrogenous mate rial to buckwheat, however, as the crop is subject to lodging, particularly in seasons of abundant rainfall. Phosphoric Acid Needed. Like the true cereals, buckwheat re sponds to a liberal application of phos phoric acid. This is particularly true in Mew York, since the soils of ttie buckwheat section are universally de ficient in phosphorus. It also seems to respond to potash. This is to be ex pected, since the poorest soils have been drained of their available potash. While the total supply of potash is adequate, soils seeded to buckwheat are often those which have not been well treated in the past, and as a re sult not only has the organic matter been depleted, but at the same time the rate at which the potash becomes available has been much retarded. Lime is not needed, since buckwheat is tolerant of soil acidity. To Fertilize This Season. Taking all of these factors into con sideration as well as fertilizer costs, the prime essential in the fertilization of buckwheat this season is an appli cation of 200 to 400 pounds to the acre of acid phosphate, the soils work ers at the New Y'ork State College of Agriculture say. On very thin soils, where manure is not available, in ad dition to the acid prosphate 50 to 100 pounds of nitrate of soda or sulphate of ammonia, and 25 to 50 pounds of muriate of potash may be used. CONSERVING HAY IN MANGER Hor.e With Chronic Habit of Nosing Out Feed Under His Feet Is Decided Nuisance. A neighbor once owned a horse with a chronic habit of nosing most of the hay out of the manger and under his feet as soon as it hud been thrown down. An animal with this trait Is both a nuisance and useless expense. Alfalfa, clover and some 'other hays are not so easily removed, but wild hay can be easily tossed out. This farmer resorted to a simple means to stop this annoyance. A green log about four inches in diameter was cut short enougli to drop into the manger without touching either of the feed boxes. This was supported, when outside, by two ropes, each tied through the halter-rope holes and around one end of the log. After the manger has been filled the log is thrown into it, onto the hay. There is plenty of room for the horse to eat, yet there is no possibility of the feed being thrown out. The device cured the animal mentioned of his had lmblt In about four weeks. GIVE ALFALFA GOOD CHANCE Crowns of Plant Are Likely to Be Injured if Hog or Other Stock Is Turned in Too Soon. After the alfalfa crop has been cut for hay, hogs or other stock should not be turned in too soon. The crowns of the plant are likely to he injured if the stock is given a chance to eat the young tender shoots too closely. Often this close feeding per manently injures, or even kills, the plants. Let it have a good start if yon intend pasturing. It is better prac tice, however, to provide other crops ror pasturage and use the alfalfa fur hay.

DIP ALL CATTLE REGULARLY Quickest and Most Effective Way of Getting Rid of Ticks Is Sys tematic Treatment (Prepared by the United States Department of Agriculture.) "How long do we have to dip?'' .fudging from numerous reports re ceived by the United States Depart ment of Agriculture the question of length of dipping interests the major ity of live stock owners in areas quar antined, because of cattle ticks. The department's answer is "one or sev eral years, depending on how you dip." Naturally cattle owners wish to com plete tick eradication in the shortest possible time and at least cost and in convenience. The experience of the department in eradicating ticks from half a million square miles shows conclusively that regular systematic Tipping of all cattle every 14 days is the quickest means. m a»* Damage Done by Ticks on Young Heifer. Failure of even a few cattle owners to dip all their cattle may undo the ef forts of their neighbors who bring all the cattle to the vats on schedule. The bureau of animal industry. United States Department of Agriculture, will supply on request full information for completing tick eradication in the shortest time—one season when direc tions are faithfully followed.
