Value of Experiments. [Newspaper Article] — The Picton Post — 25 September 1907

Value oC Experiment*. Ot late years a good deal of time and ' money has been spent in experiments to prove, amongst other things, the value of different artificial manures on growing crops. Doubtless these experiments have been of considerable' value as gene ral guides, but they are not a means by which rules can be fixed, owine to the difference in local conditions, soils, and seasons. For instance, a farmer may see the result of a certain experiment— say, In manuring — but he cannot adopt the method with confidence that the effect will be the same with him, because the conditions under which he works may make all the difference. The deduction is that every farmer should experiment for himself. He need not do It In a lavish or extravagant way, but on such ' J a soole that he. can prove for himself '--? ' what answers on hlB farm. He will then know what to go in f6r and what to ?^avold. He has the general principles ?If before him, or he may get them. He can ^quickly learn the simpl...

To the credit of agricultural societies It must be said that in their selection of Judges they endeavor to pick men who have all there are capable judges, and plenty of i them perhaps. It Is necessary to train young farmers to be good judges of stock, irrespective of any question of being engaged as such at shows.
