I A Paying Crop of Oats and Peas The best crop I made this year was from four acres of run down land which would not I produce more than one-half a D' of cottoh per acre. I turned this land, harrowed thoroughly and drilled in oats of ' the 100-bushel variety. The only I fertilizer needed was three sacks of nitrate of soda. I made 200 bushels of oats on the four acres. C I- then sowed this land to a mixture of Unknown peas and Amber cane seed and made 13 wagon loads, averaging 1,000 pounds to the load, of good i roughage off of this same four acres.
