From the Atlantic to Iowa anil from
Tennessee to Canada clover Is the
key crop In rotations, but there is a
gradual though steady decline in the
culture of red clover In this area.
Specialists in the bureau of plant in

this decline and urge all farmers to
get back to clover.
Less planting of clover has Injuri

“ Whether a farmer adopts a three,
four, or five-year rotation,” the spe
cialists declare, “ he is sure to find
that his yields will decline if he does
not have clover somewhere in the ro
tation. Theoretically, of course, it is
possible to substitute another legumi
nous crop for clover, but practically
clover fits so well into the agricultural
practices of this section that it is the
only leguminous crop having any large
degree of Influence upon keeping up
the productivity of the soil.”
