They I were all sown to Turkish Red win- ter wheat, some being sown broad cast and others put in with a press drill. It was planned to harrow the wheat after it was up. Some of the plats were to be harrowed in hrtli Poll anA Qr,rSnrt rtfharc tn Ho . . , . . . a third set were to be Rolled. It is apparent from the data that J during the past five years no in creased yield could be secured from harrowing winter wheat. Harrow ing broadcasted wheat resulted in an average loss of almost three bushels per acre, while harrowing drilled wheat resulted in a loss of nine-tenths of a bushel per acre. Rolling wheat in the Spring, has not failed in any of the four years to give an increased yield, the aver age increase being 5.1 bushels per acre. The rolling was given early in the Spring, soon after frost was out, and about the time growth started. Harrowing after rolling was not as good as rolling alone. probably due to loosening up the plants again after the Roller had pressed them firmly into the soil. Every Spring rolling of winter grain, pressing the earth as it does firmly about the plant roots, pro- duces good results. When frost comes out in the Spring it is apt to leave the soil filled with small cracks or checks, especially around' the plants. If these checks are ex- amined closely it will he seen that a large number of roots are thus ex posed, and if the weather continues dry they are killed, or at least in jured. We have taken up plants in the Spring where half the roots were injured in this manner. If the soil is not wet at the time of rolling and it should never be rolled when wet rolling aids in no small degree to form a surface mulch. It does this rather than compact the surface. By E. G.
