8 SELECTION OF SEEB COHN. 8
If one desires to Improve his seed
corn for another yenr, the time to do
it is before the present crop Is gather
ed. When a person follows the com
mon practice of securing bis seed from
the barn, large ears are invariably
selected, and It cannot be told at that
time whether the ears are large due to
breeding, or whether they have been
produced on stalks which have been
favored with an undue amount of fer
tilizer or distance. If seed are select
ed which have been grown under the
latter conditions, they are not apt to
produce large ears another year un
less given a rather heavy application
of fertilizer or more distance than1
necessary. Therefore, the seed ears
should he selected from stalks which
have grown under average conditions.
To make this selection properly, it
must first be decided which portion
of the field represents as near as pos
sible the average soil conditions of
the farm Then from blocky and heal
thy stalks which have not been fa
vored with any undue amount of dis
tance or richness in the soil, the seed
ears should be gathered. Before
breaking the ears from the stalks,
one should ascertain their size as near
as possible. This can be done by
carefully examining them with the
hand, and if they seem to be of good
size and well filled out at the tip they
should be pulled. If the corn should
be a prolific variety, it does not mat
ter whether the top or bottom ear Is
selected so long as a good one Is se
After having selected about twice as
many ears as will be necessary for
seed, all of them should be stored in
a place free from mice and weevils.
A few days prior to planting time, all
of the cars should be shucked and
only the best ones should be retained
for planting. It Is well to bear in mind
that all seed ears should he free from
mixture, heavy, of good size, have deep
grains, well filled butts and tips, un
iform kernels, and narrow spaces be
tween the rows of grains, as the above
points are conducive to larger yields
and have a tendency to be reproduced
