LUCERNE-METHODS OF CULTURE. Lucerne is a perennial plant, and onco well established will last a number of years-from four to ten, or more, depending upon the character of the soil and treatment ot the plant in re ference' to manuring and niothods ot cutting. The mature plant is a vigor ous feeder, its roots often -penetrating to a depth of 10ft. or more.

Thia accounts for the fact that from throe to live outtings can bo harvested annually. Lucerne is adapted to a wide range of soil, provided the subsoil .is. open and porous, and well supplied with 'lime.
