REDWING THE COST Those who have Iteen able to fake advantage of every good plowing day in January have heen taking effective steps toward redueing the cost of this vear's crops. This is true for se\eiul j reasons. Early plowing will give plenty i of time for the rains Co settle the ; ground and give a firm wed bed at i planting tine. Early plowing distil butes the work tietter. giving more work in the early nuatths find less j work right at the planting season, j Thus it is posible to get crops planted more nearly on time. But one of the greatest advantages of early plow ing is that by it we turn under stalks, grass, weeds, or any humus-building j material in time for them to start rot j ting hv planting time. To many, the effect of each of these advantages tna; ap|tear negligible. Yet it is a fact that each of them eontribues directly | or indirectly to redueing the cost of : making crops. The firm seed tail in sun's lietter germination and a more : ripid growth for the young crop. <Jcl ring all crops planted in due season j usually makes them more certain in production. Turning under stalks, grass and weeds in time for rotting to be well started by planting time assures more plant food fo rthe crop and there fore more pounds or more bushels of the crop. Il lessens somewhat the danger of the interference of the ol 1 j stalks in working the new crop. A 1 thick crop of grass or weeds turned under just Itefore planting time will usually prevent the passage of soil moisture from beyow to the surface layer where the plants are growing It is necessary that such crops tie turned under early enough to permit partial decay before the dry weather of summer sets in. It certainly can cost no more per acre to plow early. The plowing has to la* done. If ei#ly plowing at no greater cost pe racre produces more pounds or more bushels of crop pei acre, the coat per pound or per bushel la actually reduced. Every day be tween onw and planting time, when the soil is not too wed to plow, should lie utilised to the fullest extent to help reduce the cost of our next crop.
