University of Idaho, Moscow, March

announces that it pre|»res cultures for
the inoculation of all leguminous
crops. Only fresh cultures, prepared
by thoroughly trained men In the de

this announcement. Full directions
for use accompany each culture.*
Those deairing cultures are advised to
ni'tlfy the department about ten days
In advance of seeding time In order
that cultures may be sent in time to
treat the seed until reaily to sow.
"The culture should not be held
longer than absolutely necessary be
fore treating the seed, as the bacteria
will not live long on the seed and
gradually decrease In numbers in the
j l*dttles after a definite perils!."
"Fresh cultures of tested value
