M. U. MAN TELLS METHODS
OF CULTIVATING THE CROPS
Samuel M. Jordan of the State Board
of Agriculture sajs that the two
important things in drj weather culti
vation of corn are to prevent evapor
ation of the water in the soil and to re
tain what may fall as rain.
To leave a slightly corrugated sur
face is best, since a flat surface of dust
will get hotter than one with slight
corrugations similar to the surface as
it Is left following a corrugated roller
Since on the flat surface the sun's
rajs strike more nearly perpendicu
lar to the surface, hence evaporation
by wind and heat will bo less than
on a flat surface.
Again, if the surface of the dust i-
left flat and a heavy rain should fall,
this flat surface will "puddle" more
quickly than the corrugated surface,
hence the water will begin to run more
quickly from the flat surface, while on
Again, after the ram has ceased the
flat surface will dry more rapidly, and
crack open worse than will the cor
In view of these facts, anv tool such
as a drag, mower, or corn planter
wheel, should have some harrow teeth
so placed that they will leave the sur
face slightl.v rough. Where shovel
tools are used, the plowing should not
be deep nor very doe to the corn
roots, especially toward time for "lay
It w'ould appear that corn roots fin
