Milton Evans' Views As to
HIS REPORT AS TO EXPERIMENTS
P ant Is Peculiarly an Upland
One— Irrigated Land Is Not Nec
essary to Secure Crop.
; , re gpnnse to the request of Byron
Hunter, the government assistant
„,., i a 1 the Pullman agrkul
tural college, Mr. Milton Evans, who
is deputyagrastologist for Walla Wal
la county, has prepared an opinion as
to the best methods to pursue in the
cultivation of alfalfa. Mr. Evans
pieted his letter yesterday and for
warded the same to Pullman last
nigh! In bis report Mr. Evans says:
: nee with your request I
W jt' give a succinct idea of how to se
"First i must say the matter of

a good stand on the ground. I shall

a myth. It is peculiarly a dry land

If your conscience don't prick you
your collars and cuffs may, and make
you appreciate the smooth edges, soft
button-holes and exquisite color and
finish that you can always rely on re
teiving from the Walla Walla Steam
great returns before the plant gets
thoroughly rooted in the soil. I would
insist upon the supplying bacteria to
the field if there is none found avail
able for the plant where grown. Kan
sas experiments developed the exist
ence of bacteria in 65 out of 6S plants
examined, so there is good reasons to
believe that the bacteria may be in
the soil naturally.
"Concluding, I would say don't con
demn the field until you have given it
two or three years growth and then
you will be amply rewarded for all the
time gTven to waiting. In our climate
the Turkestan variety seems to do ex
ceedingly wen. K Ven in its f our th
year on upland it has given a greater
yield than any previous year. I would
say to the farmers and insist strenu
ously upon this point. Give the first
year or two of the life of the plant the
very best you have, and you will have
an inheritance coming to you for many
years in return for your early care."
