CROP ROTATION OF PERMANENT BENEFIT. [Newspaper Article] — Warrnambool Standard — 22 January 1914
CROPROTATION OF PERMANENT , BENEFIT, 1. C. Doneghue; Prof. of Agronomy; North Dakota Agricultural College. . While all the causes of low .yields of the small grains cannot be, remov ed,: practically Ull that are of imme diate importance i can be ,. controlled in large measure , by a well-planned system of"crop rotation. When crops are grown in rotation ' and proper tillagg methods are followed, they will-suffer less.from dry weather than when they are grown. continuously. l'rop rotation is usually of more im portance' thlauthe "m'ethods of tillage used in ,this respect, .although both are important. ,In most rotations more roughage is produced .than 'can be disposed 'of by the work st?o 'on thie farm'. Hence, imore animals must be;kept:and more manure; produced ,to return to the land to keep,up,the supply of organic matter. The organ ic mattel in the, soil . may' also . be maintined" ,by growing,grasses aind legumes, (plover, Iucerne, Peas); in the rotation. Inasmuch as not enough m...
THE FARM. SUB-SOILING WITH EXPLOSIVES. SOME PRACTICAL HINTS ON THEIR USE. [Newspaper Article] — Warrnambool Standard — 22 January 1914
THE FARM. SUB-SOILING WITH EXPLOSIVES. SOME PRACTICAL HINTS ON THEIR USE. It is well to realise that land is boughlt or leased according to its surface measurement, and if we cani succeed' in, making 'the under-soils 'contribute a share towards the pro duction of better crops, we are add ing to the producing area of our farms in the most economical way possible. Land is getting very dear on the surface, and to get the best possible returns per acre- we must, on all' our stiffer" soils or those un derlaid, by "hard-pan," break up thi sub-soils to allow -the roots of the plants a full range for root growth. Farming by dynamite has. caught on in. the. United States, and is spread ing throughout Canada and Mexico like a prairie fire. It.seems a stra?ge way of making the 'ground hrin. forth its produce in plenty, but there is no getting, away from the fact that it acts. Doubtless the man who tried the trick .first and met with success was quite ii the.dark as to why it suc ceeded. It- is...
