July Flowim Best For Wheat.
livery wheat grower who is n
close observer will reuull Hint
early plowing produces n better
yield of wheat, but iiow enrly does
this mean? Repeated experiments
show that it means' at least, as
early as tlio middle ot July, says
lb. K. lludelson, of the University
of Missouri, College of Agricul
ture. In careful experiments -Inly
plowing lias yielded doublo tlio
amount of Septomber plowing.
Tho reasons for this are tlio
storage of plant food and moisture
in plowed soil. Nattual processes
ae constantly making plant food
available, biit if weeds are grow
ing in the stubble tliey immedi
ately take up this fond and the
moisture needed for growth. They
give up this plant food when
plowed under but wheat cannot
feed on weed steins and the pro
cess of turning them buck into an
available form is very slow. As a
result, the young wheat is pre
vented from getting 'well estab
lished before winter sets in. Even
the occassional cultivation to Keep
weeds out of early plowing helps
by letting air into soil and hasten
ing the process of making plant
food available.
Other advantages of early plow
ing for wheat, aro the turning un
der of all stubble and trash to
gether with any insects harbored
in them. Weeds are provonted
from seeding too. It also permits
the wheat to be seeded Into enough
to avoid Hessian fly aud still make
a good rapid growth beforo winter
on account of the stored up food
aud quick growth.
The rush of farm work makes
early plowing very difficult, but it
should be realized that every day
of delay reduces the yield of next
year's wheat crop. Tho stacking
of wheat will often help to get it
out of tho way tor plowing and
give time beforo threshing.
