I found that the alfalfa shades the
pods and prevents them from pop
ping about a week later than when
rowing it pure, also alfalfa keeps
it a few inches off the ground mak
ing it easier to cut. The mixture can
be cut any time during the day and
left 2 4 hours in the shock, and
hen stacked in similar way, it be
ing so fluffy, it cures fine in the
tack in spite of the alfalfa. When dleton Friday
ending crop is removed, spring-
'ooth field and irrigate, and the
etch will merely spread a little on
he ground like late planted rye, and
,ot interfere with the two next
rops. By springtoothing the
round we get a lot of leaves in
he ground and such a mixture
hould enrich the ground at least
wice as fast as pure alfalfa.
As the vetch seed crop is har
vested in between first and second
utting of alfalfa, the mixture alfalfa

The above experiments were con

and entirely dependent on irriga

fter vetch, but I believe it could be
one, by not cutting first cutting of

i possible and plant potatoes right

aatures around July 5-10, second
