The Benefit of Legumes [Newspaper Article] — Creswick Advertiser — 3 February 1914
The Benefit of Legumes It is a well known fact that a vig orous leguminous crop such as ports or clover euriches tho laud in nitrogen and that another crop, .say wheat or oats, following in rotation will benefit from tho nitrogen ivsiduo»._ Kecent investigation* show, however, that t:io eeival may derive benefit from tho '.vg. iiiiii' oven when both are growing at the same time. In tho "Jour. Agrie. Kei.," vol. 3, experiments are describ ed bearing this inference. Oats wero grown in quartz s;ind in small pots placed in larger pots also filled with quartz sand, but growing peas. Tho inner pots thus grow oat* only and llo larger outer pois peas only, and in both cases all tho necessary plant fo>U wero added except nitrogen. Tlio inner pots wero of two kinds. Where Ui'jv were of tho ordinary porous pattern tho oats grew vigorously.
