Orchard Notes. GREEN MANURE. [Newspaper Article] — Mornington Standard — 2 March 1912

Orchard Notes. (By E. E. Pescott, in 'Journal of Agriculture), GenEE MANUREvn The benefits accruing from growing a cover crop for green manure are everywhere recognised. The crop should be planted as soon as possible after the early autumn rains have pre par d th ground for the plough. As the cr, p makes no growth in winter, and v.ry lit 1- i', the spring time-it. being advisable to plough it in as early as possible in spring-it is ad- t vantageous to get a good and abundant I growth in the autumn. Consequently, t the earlier the crop is planted, the greater the amo:unt of herbage there s will hb for imalurial purposes. The crop may be sown towards the t end of February. A leguminous crop t should be preferred before any other, I owing to the asmou,,t of nitrogen e which this class of plants contsins. c The sowin, will neel to be a plentiful ii one, as it is se'l to have a good dense h growth.
