It makes a very little differance
whether a farmer is a drv land ad
vocate or practices irrigation the
land to be cropped next year
should be plowed deeply this
autumn. No amount of harrowing
after the sprintr plowintr will
pulverize the land as will the win
ter frost. Eearly planting is made
possible with fall plowing. More
moisture is absorbed and retained
and the crop has an earlier and
better start and early grain inveria
bly yields the best as it obtains its
growth before the summer drouth
comes on. By plowing in the fall
the work is done and out of the
way and a farmer can accomplish
more in a spring planting. As the
harvest comes on earlier on fall
plowed land autumn plowing gives
an opportunity to be forehanded
from year to year so as to keep
ahead with the work one of the
first essentials of success. We
have never known a man in this
country who could do this unless
he plowed in the fall and then it is
always a foot race to keep ahead
ot the hounds during the growing
season. The scarcity of labor
nowadays makes the fall plowing
all the more imperative and the
early bird will be up and doing
without any prodding.- -Field and
