The Value of a Firm Seed Bed in Wheat Production [Newspaper Article] — Sunshine Advocate — 29 March 1924

The Value of a Firm Seed Red on Wheat Production 3y .J. Lcith Cilc;spic, P'.Ag.Sc. Whealt growers of experience ar.nd scientis;ts who have studied the matter are unanimous in their belief that whcat, if it is to be given soil condi tions v.which suit it best, iius;t he sown on a lirml seed hed. They, of course, make a reservation that this m21ay have to be modified under ccetain excel Lional circumt stance:. All tillage ope ration:; should be directed to attain this objecc.

POULTRY' NOTES. [Newspaper Article] — Sunshine Advocate — 29 March 1924

POULT RY' N TE. By "Tight Fcather." Now that we have the bright, dry, sunny atmosphere it would be well to let the incubators and brooders enjoy it. Some breeders wash their ma chines at the conclusion of the hatch, but fewer still disinfect them in the terms that disinfection should be ap plied. They may have put a few drops of something that smelt strongly in the water, and scrubbed out the ma chines with it, but whether it was of germicidal strength is left entirely to chance. A teaspoonful of Jey's fluid in t pint of water, fo' instance, would :,e oC germiicidal strength. In i.'ncubation, where details count, this question can not be overlooked. Thorough disin fection of incubation improve: hatlch ing results. It is Miot common know ledge that the egg tray needs most thorou;gh disin'ection: toge'.her with all inside fittings.

In this article we pro pose dealing with the last of the big three in the plant-nutrition kingdom, namely, potash. This is employed only to a minor degree in the leaf production, but is largely required in' the p roduction rf grain or fruit.
