WHAT HE HAS DONE
During his seven years in the Senate he has secured—
$31,020,269 for Oregon Development
of Seed by Cleaning
More Thorough Scarifying
Decreases Hard Kernels.
Cleaning and scarifying of alfalfa
seed prior to planting Increased the
germination 23 per cent and greatly In
creased the purity of the seed, accord
ing to results secured by O. A. Stevens,
seed analyst at the North Dakota Ag
ricultural college, In tests conducted
during the past year with 90 samples
Germination of the samples prior to
scarifying and cleaning averaged 57
per cent, with 39 hard seeds. After
cleaning and scarifying, the germina
tion averaged 78 per cent and the
number of hard seeds was cut down to
20. More thorough scarification would
further decrease the number of hard
seeds. The amount of pure seed In the
samples prior to cleaning averaged 92
per cent, and after cleaning 97 per
“Hard seeds, that is, seeds which
neither germinate nor rot, constitute a
problem peculiar to the legumes, al
falfa, sweet clover, white, red and al-
slke clovers,” Mr. Stevens declares.
"Water falls to penetrate the seed
coats, and the seeds may lie dormant
tn the ground for long periods of time,
often several years. Frequently, sam
ples of alfalfa and sweet clover con
tain up to 75 per cent of this hard »
seed. To make these seeds germinate,
they are usually scarified, that Is, the
coats are scratched by some meclian-
leal means so that the moisture can
get through them, Occasionally sam-
pies of alfalfa and sweet clover may
show high germination without scarifi
cation, but seedsmen and farmers now
make it a rule to scarify their seed be
fore planting, especially If using varie
ties of high value.”
