IMPORTANCE OF WATER TO CROPS. [Newspaper Article] — Mortlake Dispatch — 21 March 1914

IMPORTANCE OF WATER TO . CROPS. Experiments conducted for the past fourteen years have' led to the follow ing eonclusiohs of interest to the prac tical farmer in tho matter of rotation of crops. Potatoes require tho least water, and leave the subsoil rich in moisture. They therefore leave the soil in a more favorablo condition for subsequent crops, provided that tlic getting ill of the potatoes be not un duly delayed and that nitrogen bo add ed to the soil in a readily assimilable form. L'eas aro another crop which absorb little moisturo from the soil; oats, on tho" other hand, take up much. As i'ar an tho moisture of tho soil is con cerned, it is better to grow wheat alter rye than ryo after wheat. Clover ex hausts tho moisture of the soil in lb" highest degree. Thus in dry years, a crop sown alter clover will find the con ditions of tho soil unfavourable ami will develop slowly.
