REASONS FOR ROTATIONS. [Newspaper Article] — Quambatook Times — 11 March 1914

REASONS FOR ROTATIONS At tlio basis of all genuine rotations lios the fact that ulants differ from one ! another in thoir demands upon the soil, both chemical and physical; tlioy differ with regard'to their root systems, depth of feeding, their raoisturo' requirements, their time of feeding, their dates in reaching maturity, etc. Many plants impoverish the soil; a few enrich it; somo spoil its physical condition, wlnlo others improve it in that regard. Many crops favor the growth of weeds, while others cither are able to hold the weeds in check, or re quire such cultivation and treatment as itill prevent their growth. All these differences fit plants for different places in rotation, and a well arriinged rotation is ; ono in which the strong points of ono orop follow so as to fit into the weak points of another, or vico versa, aud in this way-roduoe deficiencies to n minimum.

A question often asked is: Should a dressing of nitrogen be applied to tho laud? Ag a rule, probably not, or to quite a limited ex tent. The clover which grows in tbe field and tbo bacteria which are active in meadow Iifnd may bo trusted to col lect sufficient nitrogen out of the air to nourish not only tho clover but tho grasses. This is assuming that the meadow contains a fair proportion of clover; wliun.such is not tho case and there is little clover, then a dressing of nitrogen is advisable. and very advan tageous. The two other plant foods, potash and phosphoric acid, should bo liberally applied to meadows, especially if tho field is poor in plant food. Kainit is a good form of potash, except in very heavy lands, and then sulphate of pot ash should bo used.. To obtain the best crops the land should bo well, fid with potas...
