TO RETAIN MOISTURE
Question of Conservation Is of
Cultivation Ntft Ortly Aids by Prevent
Ing Evaporation But Also Keepa
Broken Surface That Catehea
Snow and Rain.
Agricultural oollege men tell ua that
It takes 45 tons of water to grow a
bushel of wheat. Thirty bushels will
use twelve Inches in deptb over an
acre of land. For very obvious rea
sons, a twelve-Inch rainfall would not
be enough moisture to mature ft 30
bushel crop If there were not some
moisture already In the ground. Du
ring the hot and windy daya of sum
mer evaporation might amount to
three Inches or more in a week, if no
means were used to prevent It At
this rate the whole year'B precipita
tion might be loat in a month or two.
At the very best, some of the soil
moisture la bound to be lost through
evaporation, a rainfall of, say, twenty
Inches, during the year does not guar
jantee that the crop will have that
^amount upon which to grow. Plow,
barrow, and pack as we may, the air
will pick up a good deal of the mois
ture that falls. When this work Is
done poorly, a much larger percentage
the escapes. The
then, of conservation of soil
^moisture Is of prime Importance.
Practical conservation of the pre
cipitation that reaches the soil In one
Excellent Potato Field in $eml-Arid Region,
or another consists of preventing
ta escape through evaporation by ob
structing this process at the foil sur
|faoe. Surface tillage that forms a
ust mulch is the most practicable
eans of doing this. Tbia movement
soil moisture to the surface, from
hich point it is evaporated Into the
air, Is accomplished by means of a
physical law called capillarity. The
disturbing of the soil at the surface
breaks up the capillary connection and
stops evaporation to a large extent
Hence, the value of surface cultiva
ition. Numerous tests have shown
Itbat frequent cultivation of the soil
In summer will prevent the evapora
tion of from seven to ten inches of
|water where the rainfall is not over
thirteen inches. Thus, moisture that
otherwise might escape into the air
Is kept in the soil where it can be
UBed by the seed In hastening germ
ination and in supplying water to the
growing plant. Cultivation not only
aids In conserving this moisture by
preventing its evaporation, but it also
prevents a broken surface which
catches the rain and snow It per
forms the double service of both gath
ering and retaining the rainfall. If we
are to have thirty bushel wheat crops,
there are many sections in the west
where the question of moisture conser
vation must be given more careful at
ISHELTER BELTS ARE USEFUL
Do Much to Prevent Soil Blowing Be
cause They Interfere With Move
ment of Wind Near Surface.
In dry farming areas many farm
ers are troubled with soil blowing,
sometimes to the extent of losing
their entire crop. In many sections
water comes within six feet of the
surface so that the roots of most
crops can reach moisture. While
there Is a scarcity of water, it seems
almost neoessary to follow dry farm
ing methods to be successful. In
areas where soil-blowing occurs vari
ous methods might be followed to
mitigate the bad effects. But it is
almost Impossible to eliminate them
Shelter belts do much to prevent
soil blowing because they Interfere
with the movement of the wind near
the surface of the ground. While It
requires time for shelter belts to de
velop It Is possible to get the same
effect by plowing small fields and leav
ing the surface somewhat rough. It
has been found that sandy soils blow
more easily than heavier soils and
those that contain a considerable
amount of organic matter. The prac
tice is followed in some sections after
seeding the crop, to plow a furrow
at two or three rod intervals across
the field. These counteract the move
ment of the air near the surface and
will do much to oateh drifting soil
and prevent more from starting. It Is
also a good plan to grow a border of
earn rather thickly and let it stand.
It will act as a grove or hedge and
will prevent, in a measure, soil blow-
RAISING CROPS ON SOD LAND
In Normal 8easons, Flax la One of
Best First Crops—Corn Will Make
Fair Yields Ordinarily.
(By ALVIN KBTIBlt, Colorado Asrlcul
Not all cropa do wall upon such a
seed bed as sod land. Corn if a v*
rlety adapted to the locality, 1 make
fair yields in ordinary seasons. Th«
disk planter is better than the shoe
planter, as It easily penetrates the
soil. Thus it plants the seed In molat
soil at a uniform depth. The corn is
beat planted in drills 18 to 22 Inches
apart In the row and three and one
half feet between the rows. Sod corn
needs little further cultivation. may
be harrowed at first.
Ia normal seasons, flax ia one of the
beat first crops for the sod land. The
sod is prepared the same as for corn.
The flax may then be drilled In with
a press, single disk drill using from
25 to 36 pounds of seed according to
quality. Usually flax should be plant
ed about the middle of May.
Milo Is a good feed crop for sod land
at altitudes below 5,500 feet. It Is
planted In drills six to eight Inches
apart In the row. If the corn
planter is not provided with proper
plates, blank plates furnished with the
planter may be used by drilling holes
properly sized and spaced.
For fodder, cane and Kaffir do well.
They are planted with the grain drill.
The holes not wanted must be covered
Stock melons and other melons
grow well as sod crops. When pro
perly handled, potatoes will do some
thing Whore milo does well broom
corn will grow and is a good crop for
those understanding its management
If the sod has been prepared as for
corn md properly 'handled later by
giving' a light disking and harrowing,
winter wheat may be seet'ed with fair
prospects for fair returns.
After the sod crop the sod is back
set On the "hard" lands this should
be done deeply, 8 to 10 inches or more
for best results. The plow is then
followed the same half day with the
disk and harrow. The disk should be
used vigorously enough to compact
the soil, destroy all large open spaces
and reduce any lumps or sod chunks
The harrow will pulverize the surface.
After this treatment the soil is ready
(if sufficiently moist) for adapted
crops. One of the largest items of
success lies in keeping the soil moist.
