AGRICULTURAL TEACHING. [Newspaper Article] — Leader — 17 January 1914
ARICULYUINAL TEACHINU. i - . Si--Govcrnment departmental teaching. has been so far a conspicuo?e and laiment able failure in its inadaptability to prac tice. There can be no:doubt .that it.:js held in absolute derision, if not coitempt, by the great, majority of the agricultural community at the present time. The best and most brilliant students 'have notorious ly failed' whenever they tried farming oni their own -accounut,: and they have as ndtoriously failed to impart their teaching to practical men. The agricultural colleges so far have turned out a laughing-stock of graduates and theorists who, if throwvn upon their own resources, practically, would en'cd in financial bankruptcy. But still, forsooth, they. flourish,. instructing farmers how to farm scientifically. Th'e State is spending .large sums o' money on these colleges, and if we, judge. by results - the money Js .simply being &quandered.

The first step is deep. stirring of the sub soiL We tried that on one 5l-acre field which led from a high, rather stony ridge down to bottom land composed of a deep black soil. The whole- field ridge and bottom was deep stirred 12 inches deep. The good effect of this work is best seen on the ridge. There the soil was put into condition by the deep stirring to hold the moisture that came to it. A strata of subsoil about 2 inches below the surface had been packed down by the plough slid ing over it for many years, but the deep stirring broke it up into fine soil, and the three crops that have been grown upon it since-maiz...
