The growing of beardless bar ley for feed Is especially to be roe ommendod. the whole plant being pal ntahle and very nutritious for live slock of all kinds. The root crops give very large yields In many pur lions of the state, and perhaps the highest profit per acre Is obtained from them, If we do not consider f:ult and garden vegetables. Pota toes, beets and turnips are the most widely grown of the root crops.
