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. I did almost all of the
work myself, and give below the I
cost of crop, not including the
