Phone 255 YYheel And Beatl Lexington Farmers Are Urged To Plant Cover Crops mt. L.ynn joraan, cnairman 01 he Holmes ASC County committee, reminds farmers that one of the ways of reducing the cost of pro ducing crops in 1960 would be to establish a legume cover crop that will pdotect the soil from winter rains that cause erosion. Recent experiments conducted by Coastal Plain Experiment Station in New ton County, Mississippi, show that a good legume cover crop would produce the same benefits as ap plying three sacks of ammonium nitrate per acre. In addition to this benefit. Mr. Jordan states that ex periment tests show cover crops reduce soil loss by one-fourth, adds humus to the soil, aids internal drainage, and increases water holding capacity. Mr. Jordan suggests that each year farmers plant approximately 25 percent of their row cropland to a legume winter cover crop. By only having 25 percent of the land devoted to cover crop, farmers may work the remaining part of their row cropland early in the spring and permit the cover crops to obtain maximum growth. This rotation would also result in each acre of row cropland having a win ter cover crop once every four years. Farmers are urged to give im mediate consideration to planting cover crops since they must be r~ — planted not later than December 1 for maximum results. Through the Agricultural Conservation Pro gram the Goverment offers to sh are the financial cost of purchas ing cover crop seed on a 50-50 basis with the farmer. Those far mers who desire assistance through the ACP for carrying out a con servation practice should contact ■the Holmes ASC County Office at Lexington, Mississippi, to file their requests for Government cost sharing.
