UNPROFITABLE ACRES. [Newspaper Article] — Violet Town Sentinel — 18 May 1915

UNPROFITABLE ACRES. We 11 .1; i r many' uncomplimentary thing? said about the unprofitable dairy ;? ow-the boarder cow that is sujipor ted from the profits of the remainder of tlic herd. On many farms the unpro fitable dairy cow is liot by any means the ouiy boarder. Low-yielding acres are often fatal to successful farming. Our farm survey records show that areas.of poorly drained) couipact, sour soilsj or soils low in humus greatly re duce net profits and are a frequent cansi; of. minus labour-income. Some times. these records show that, as much as" thirty per' cent, of the eutire farm acrciige does not produco enough to pay its way.

USE OF SALT IN AGRICULTURE. [Newspaper Article] — Violet Town Sentinel — 18 May 1915

USE OF SALT IN AGRICULTURE. The use of salt for uianurial purposes is a comiuoh practice in many parts of the L'.rHisU Isles. Only a few crops, lipwever, derive,benefit from its ap plication. The maiiurin] value of com mon salt is au indirect one. When ap plied to the soil, the sodium liberates and sets free more available potash from the large stock of insoluble pot ash compounds generally contained in coast soils. In this respect, salt forms a very gooil adjunct to other mauuros for ? all those crops requiring large supplies of potash. Its application to soils rich in some cases replace the use of pot ash manures. The use of common salt as a manure is associated with the man uring of maugels perhaps moro than with any other crop. Its valne in this respect was formerly generally ascribed to the fact that the wild species of the now cultivated mangel was a marine plant, and thus accustomed to the habit of growing in a salty environment. As mangel is a potash-loving plant, the true e...

If your land is already too rich to raise .tiiiall grain put in crops that can use fertility. Spread it on the pastures ..mil meadows. You can't grow too much grass. Nor can you grow too much maize-too much per acre, J mean. . Many do not appreciate the value of oat straw and shredder fodder as a means of: saving- liiauuro and making humus. Instead of burning the stacks of straw, or allowing them to rot, feed all you can and uso the rest for bed dinT. Bod heavily, <eo as to absorb all the liquids. Spread this thinly over the fields by means of a spreador, used daily it' enough manure is made to pay hitching up, and you have your fertility out where it will go into the soil in stead of firing in the pilo or washing away with the rains.
