\f« Way to Plant Corn.
T< xuf Live Stock Journal.
Some weeks ago the Stock Jommil
had an article on methods <>f corn raising
1 H|>ecially adapted to this climate,
ing that instead of planting on ridge's,
the com should la- plant«*<l in furrows.
This position was taken from a theory
that the sun was too strong, here, and
that the corn roots should be protected
by licing planted deep, which theory has
been proved correct by practical experi­
I ments. But the writer thereof tvas mis­
taken m the assumption that such culti­
vation was especially adapted to seini-
■ tropical Texas. He has since learned
i that it is now already much in practice
j in Kansas, Nebraska and neighboring
• states, which is constantly on the increase.
I As everything in that country ia done by
; machinery, some inventive genius has
studied out th»' implement for this mode
I of cultivation. It is known as the lister.
. Il is a double plow, having one point and
shave and mold-lKKirds mimin' right and
left, making a double plow at ’browing
the soil both ways, leaving a deep furrow.
Immediately behind the plow and at­
tached to it is a aub-soiler running from
two to four inches tielow the bottom of
f i the furrow,
and stirring up the sub-eoil.
No previous plowing is needed, and many
follow immediately behind with a drill
and plant tlie corn. When the com is
coming up it is harrowed nr brushed and
the young weeds killed. As the com
grows th»; cultivation l»etween the rows
is continued, always working the soil to
instead of from the plants until it is clean
and largo enough to lay by. ”1710 theory
and practice of »’ultivation by the lister
is identical with that «lescribed in th"
Stock Join nal. only by reason of the
mib-soiler more thorough. With the
lister do prep.iratory plowing is needed,
but a good team of at least three strong
horses must t>e used to the lister, and in
most soils in Texas it shouhl be run at
’ least six inches deep. The Kansas Fann
. er of Nov. 3 publishes a nuinlterof letters
■ from farmers in different sections of that
I state all of whom have used the hater,
and all are highly pleased with the re-
! suits-. The only objection to the lister in
! that state, is that it may plant too deep
1 early in th»* spring, and owing to the
‘ chillness of the soil rot tho com and
• cause a poor stand. That objection in
this warm climate would not amount to
■anything. The great advantage of lister
planting that it will stand long drouth“,
; and requires less labor, while a larger
crop is assured. It is estimated that,
there are now fully 50.000 listers in use in
Kansas. Nebraska, Iowa and Missouri,
and th»* number is rapidly on the in
crease. It is an implement badly needed
1 in Texas, and the sooner it is adopted
