FARMERS FIND STATION
HAS LEARNED NEW FACTS
Different Crops ami Improved Va

Now crops to replace some of the
old that have failed to make good
on some of the farms in Oregon, and
new varieties of the old standby,
were inspected by farmers from
Rainier to lioseburg on the annual
field days at the experiment station,
Corvallis. Better treatment of soils
to get more profitable yields and
still keep up fertility, and new facts
on fnedftlig handling farm live
stock, cows and poultry, were other
tilings picked up.
(letting bigger yields by chang
ing crops in n gular cycles, was one
thing. The farmers saw fields that
had grown beans every year for 1 4
; :irs and the avera was low,
only about nine bushels an acre.
Alongside other fields wore seen
growing beana every third year with
barley and clover between times, and
the average yield for the fourteen
veers was 1 8 bushels of beans. The
rofit was more than twice as great
n the rota'ion, and the soil is still

o run down as to produce five or
