"Scientific Farming.
O. O. W. TO H. W. W. AN1 G. W. B.
I like to be "called out," in a friendly
spirit, and am glad of the opportunity to
tell more fully what I mean by "scientif
ic farming."
I was born and bred a farmer and
shall never forget the long weary years
of my youth, when all the work was
done by hand, and a day of labor was
from sun to sun." I was very anxioa
then to get away from the farm ; I sigh
now and wish I had one to go back to.
There is in one of Moliere's plays an
amusing character who expresses great
surprise on being told that he had been
speaking prose for more than 40 years
Mow, of course in so far as G. W. B has
been successful as a farmer, there is no
doubt that he has been doing "stientiflc
farming" for more than 40 years. Farm
ing is really successful only so far as it
is scientific. The man who took $700 or
$S0O from one acre of ground in farm
produce must have been a scientific farm
er whether he was conscious of it or not.
What is science? It Is knowledge and
understanding of the laws of nature.
Science is based upon facts proved by ex
perience. Scientific farming is the ap
plication of known and verified princi
ples to the cultivation and management
of a farm.
Let us be more particular and quote
from the great Century dictionary : "2
Knowledge gained by systematic obser
vation, experiment and reasoning;
knowledge co-ordinated, arranged, and
systematized." "4. Art derived from
precepts or baaed on principles; skill re
sulting from training; special, excep
tional, or preeminent skill." Science is
the knowledge of facts and the princi
ples embodied in them ; and art is .the
skill with which the principles of science
are applied to produce results ; in raising
potatoes or in the building of ships or in
making cotton cloth.
Again, from the Century dictionary :
"The theory of agriculture is a science
comprehending in its scope the nature
and properties of soils, the different sorts
of plants and seeds fitted for them, the
composition and qualities of manures,
and the rotation of crops, and involving
a knowledge of chemistry, geology and
kindred sciences. Practical agriculture,
or husbandry, is an art comprehending
all the labors of the field and of the farm
yard, such as preparing the land for the
reception of the seed or plants, sowing
and planting, rearing and gathering the
crops, care of fruit trees and domestic
animals, disposition of products, etc."
I used the words in their general sense
as iucludirig everything that enters into
the problem of successful agriculture:
Climate, soils, fertilizing, irrigation, the
use of machinery, the storage and pres
ervation of crops until wanted for use, or
while waiting for the demands of the
market ; and even the disposition of pro-
II if" a DA aa tn inenra o .nonr.n.,KU .
" "UUUI iiruiio,
Co-operation in buying and selling, and
the making of good roads to shorten the
distance to markets should be included.
Science means knowledge, skill, econ
omy, success and happiness. It is op
posed to that which is merely traditional,
heresay, haphazard, and in part at least,
a failure. Science is really good com
mon senFe working hand in hand with
nature. You don't plant beans in a bog,
nor raise corn In the shade. There are
wheat lands, potato soils, grass grounds
and a time and place for all that grows.
It is not scientific to set apple trees and
never prune, cultivate nor fertilize them
and still expect fine fruit. It is little use
to grow and gather a large crop of ap
ples and dump them Into a bin to rot be
cause they will not sell at once. Q. W.
B. knows how to preserve them until
they are wanted at a good price, and so
far at least, he is "scientific." (This is
heresay."
It Is not scientific to farm work by
hand so that corn and potatoes cost more
than they will bring. The cost of pro
duction must be reduced by the use of
machinery until it will pay to raise them
for market.
Yes, the farmer needs lots of falth,and
a love of nature, with a hearty good will
to work. He must learn to toe the mark
and be cheerful. Some farmers grumble
loud enough to stunt the growth of, cab
bage. Tramps and details can wait
