more service and wear in a buggy of medium

At this time of year cultivated crops
require tne farmers' attention, What is
meant by cultivated crops is crops that
are cultivated during tbeir growth, Buch
as corn, potatoes and root crops.
Generally speaking, cultivation is lor
three purposes, viz., to kill the noxious
weeds, to aerate soil and thus make
available latent fertility and to keep up
Summer fallowing, that waa long prac
ticed by Willamette Valley farmers, is
no longer in general favor. Experiment
stations, as well as the more progressive
farmers, have proven that the growing
of a cultivated crop such as corn, pota
toes or sugar beets, is far more profitable
than blank summer fallow.
The first one of the three objects
named in cultivating is readily under
stood by all, but the other two involve
Drincioles more complicated.
Making available latent fertility is
simply atirring the soil and allowing the
oxygen of the air to mix wi:u tne ele
ments of the soil and thus render plant
growth possible to a larger degree than
would be possible without the cultiva
If all the fertility in the soil wete avail
able at one time the soil would produce
an immense crop and i" ao doing would
exhaust itself of its fertility and be ren
dered useless until tbe fertility would
again be restored by fertilizing. Thus
nature has wisely provided that only a
certain amount of this fertility is availa
ble each year, and, to get this, a certain
amount of work is necessary and accord
ingly "by the sweat of thy brow shalt
thou earn thy daily bread. "
The last but not least of tbe three-ob-iects
named is conservation of moisture.
Two forcea are constantly at work, if left
to nture, wasting the moiature that is
in the soil. Capillarity draws the mois

tbe board will be the aame dry dirt for
several inches in depth. The board has
prevented the air from coming in con
tact with the aoil under the board wbfle
at other places evaporation hat taken
place aa fast as capillarity brought mois
ture near enough to the surface that the
air came in contact with it.
We cannot lay boards all over onr
fielda to prevent this evaporation but by
frequent cultivation a duat blanket can
be produced that will a.rve practically
tbe same purpose. The best means of
producing this dust blanket is shallow
cultivation once a week- with a narrow
toothed implement and follow soon (the
same day if possible) with a' roller or
clod masher. This packs the soil and1
smoothes it ao that less surface is ex
posed to tbe wind than if left ridged as
the cultiuator leaves it.
Thia means of cultivatioo will not only
produce a larger yield of tbe cultivated
crop but also a larger yield of grain next
