It is predicted that the wide
spread use of Primar and Bromar
in place of the common varieties
with sweetclover will increase con
servation effectiveness of green
manure crops on Washington
farms, said Orlie W. Smith. Field
Agronomist for the Soil Conserva
tion Nursery at Pullman.
When seeded with sweet clover,
:these grasses which were recently
developed at the State College of
Washington are usually planted at
the rate of ten pounds per acre to
five pounds of sweet clover. This
rate of seeding will usually give a
stand which will produce about
one-third grass and two-thirds
sweet clover by weight. A mixture
of this proportion seems most ef
fective for erosion control in green
manure crops, as well as for re
ducing the bloat hazard when used
for pasture. ~
The total production of green
manure of pasture crop is not re
duced when the proportion of grass
is not over one-third o fthe sweet
3clover-grass mixture. The combin
ed yields of roots and tops of the
mixture is usually higher than for
sweet clover planted alone.
The fibrous roots of the grass
make up more than one-half of the
total roots produced in the Primer
of Bromar sweet clover mixtures.
These grass roots decay slower

than the sweet clover roots and
absorb some of the nitrogen from

use by succeeding crops. In addi

Some' of the benefits from the
inclusion of Primer of Bromar in
sweet clover green manure and
pasture seedings are:
l. Reduces erosion and run-off
during the winter season due to
protection of grass.
2. Reduces soil heaving and
winter injury because of the pro
tective effect of the grass cover
and grass roots in the soils.
3. Rteduces danger of burning to
crop allowing a green manure
4. Longer fertilizing effect of
the nitrogen produced by the sweet
c over. ,
5. Increased organic matter and
water holding capacity of the soil
due to the fibrous grass roots.
6. Decrease the danger of bloat
when used for pasture.
7. Makes a more palatable pas
ture or hay for livestock.
Washington farmers, feeding
livestock and poultry, are faced
with a serious shortage of feed
grains and p'roteins, says a new
publication issued by the Institute
of Agricultural Sciences of the
State College of Washington.
The circular, issued to meet the
present emergency situation con
tains a listing of ways in which
farmers may adjust their opera
tions to meet the feed shortage.
The various commodities in the
state are listed together with a di
gest of the feed situation, a sum
mary of the causes and a brief di
gest of some of the government
orders now in effect.
Feeds are short throughout the
nation, the circular points out, but
are shortest in a deficit area like
Washington where farmers have
offset the lack of corn, oats and
barley by increasing wheat fed.
Government wartime programs
have encouraged the feeding of
wheat and feed grains by keeping
livestock prices relatively favor
able in relation to wheat and feed
grains. Price relationships for
corn— and livestock, and the high
moisture content of the 1945 corn
crop, have discouraged the move
ment of corn out of surplus pro
ducing areas into Washington. As
a result, in Washington, wheat
which normally constituted one
creased in recent years to one-half.
Now this wheat is drastically need
ftom countrig. J _ 7
The circular says that the two
courses farmers have immediately
available to them in meeting the
feed situation are increased ef
ficiency in the use of all their
feeds and a reduction in livestock
numbers. As a long time program.
attention _is called to the fact that
the Situation may be improved by

ments, 8 more nearly normal pro
portion of the national feed grain
supply, especially corn.
The feed circular is Extension

and is now being distributed by
county extension offices and by
feed dealers throughout the state
who are cooperating with the col
lege in the program.
The three foremost uses of the
land classification maps that will
soon be available for nearly a doz
en Washington counties. are point
ed out by Arthur W. Peterson and
Barnard D. Parrish, agricultural
economists of the State College of
First. the maps will serve as a
guide to veterans and other new
settlers; second, they- will help
farmers to decide how their lands
can best be used; and. third, they
will guide public and private
agencies which are interested in
granting loans or extending serv-,
ices in farm areas. '
Veterans or other new settlers,
says Peterson and Parrish. by re
‘ferring to the maps will get help
iin locating the areas where they
would like to settle. They can see
on the maps the land areas inany
county where, according to careful
research studies. farmers have
been very successful. The maps al
so show the areas where farmers
have been only moderately suc
cessful as well as areas where they
have had difficulty in even making
a living.
The second most important use
to these maps is to help farmers
decide on how their lands can best
be used, says the economists. For

farms. For example, there is some
‘question whether an area as low
in productivity as Class 5 can
economically justify very much
public and private services unless
it is located where the inhabitants
can secure work off the farm for
a large portion of the year.
Agencies which extend credit to
farmers will find that farmers on
Classes 1 and 2 can afford to bor
row much more money, because
their income is high enough to pay
the interest and principal of the
loan and also to provide them a
good level of living.
