growers at Oswego, Independ

were compelled to grow seed
Seed growing itself may be
come an industry here in the
opinion of Mr. Russell. One
pound of seed will grow plants
to set 25 acres, at 4800 plants
to the acre. Seed is very im
portant, as the Eugene grow
ers lost their entire crop in
1920 on account of bad seed.
The seed is sown in the open
from April 15 to May 15, and
the plants are reset from Ju
ly 1 on for some time. They
ripen and are cut for the mar
ket from February 1 to Apri
1, according to season. They
can be set out as early as May
and June and are grown with
out irrigation on any soil that
will grow ji good crop of kale;
sandy loam and barnyard ma

strains of seed are best.
Now to form an association
of growers of broccoli two

to sell but he can help get the
seed and get it right. That is
very important. He has taken
$386 off three-quarters of an

marketing broccoli that makes
your mouth water.
This easy grown crop will
produce $200 to $500 an acre.
