In addition to theio advantages it is

Luck of understanding of tho peculiar
ities of tho plant and its requirements,
has cuuiod many failures of first at
tempts at growing tho crop in Weitern
Oregon. This has led farmers to bo
Hove that -iilfulfu is not naturally
adapted to this rrgion While this to
a certain extent Is true, yet tho diffi
culties in tho way may and havo been
largely overcome. Tho splendid re
sults obtained by tho stato experi
ment station and o'her growers in dif
ferent parts of Western Oregon should
convince tho must skeptical of the
great future of the crop in this state.
As authentic and accurately measured
yield to illustrate tho posilbilltlcs of
tho crop here, thoso recorded at tho
experiment station may be cited. Tho
averago of all the yield of the station

typical of tho Willamette valley, and
has received no Irrigation, fertilization
or ipcclal treatment whatever. Any
whero in Western Oregon where cer
tain primary requirements of the crop
are satisfied, the same or better re
sult should be obtained. It only bo
hoovo tho beginner to secure tho best
advice obtainable as to method of
growing; start with a small pieco; ex

The primary requirements of alfalfa
nro a deep, well drained, sweet and
fertile sol), free from weeds. The
lands most nearly meeting these re
quirements are on the slopes of the
rolling lands of tho valley bottoms;
tho slopes and tops of the hills sur
rounding these valleys, or tho deep
sandy loam river bottoms well above
the water level. Tho ordinary valley
low flat lands nro not suitable.
The deep feeding tap roots upon
whose length these plonU depend for
securing plant food and molsturo, make
a soil eight to ten feet in depth imper
ative. Although alfalfa prefers a
sandy loam, yet it has proved equally
prosperous on the heavy clay loam
soils, a heavy clay subsoil or hardpan

that In a majority of Western Oregon
soils these bacteria are not present,
and must bo supplied by artificial inoc
ulation after tho harmful acidity has
been corrected. This correction is ac
complished in naturally well drained
soils by application of different forms
of lime. Water slaked lime most
quickly and directly corrects Bail acid

Tho need of a fertile soli for alfalfa

tho soil. On naturally unfcrtllo soils.
or thoso run down by continued wheat
or othr improvident farming, it is
necessary to supply immediately avail
able plant food such as well rotted barn
yard manure, to carry the young
plants through tho first two years until
thoir deep feeding roots are establish
ed. Such fertilization as barnyard
manure or green manure (tike rye or
vetch plowed under) is best applied to
the crop preceding tho alfalfa or by
preceding it with clover or vetch.
Aside from ita plant food and moisture
retentive value the humus from such
fertilization is of great assistance to
the alfalfa bacterial activities.
Preparing for nlfalfn in the preced
ing crop Is also important In enabling
tho prospective grower to clean up the
weeds. Wetds, because of their more
rapid growth, heavy draughts on
availabla plant food and moisture, and
their shading, are higlhly injurious to
tho young alfalfa. Hence by preced
ing alfalfa with a thoroughly cultivat
ed crop such as kale, corn, potatoes,
or roots, alt of which do best heavily
manured, the ground is mode clean and
fertile for the alfalfa.
The causes of failure to secure a
stand of alfalfa are generally a poorly
prepared seed bed, poor seed, or the
wrong time Or method of seeding. The
causes of the failure of the crop to
grow after a good stand .has been se
cured, aro either lack of alfalfa bac
teria, tho need of lime, pasturing when
too young, on impoverished soil, over
crowding with weeds, a shallow toil,
poor drainage, lack of cultivation, or
improper after treatment. A crop
properly started and cared for should
produce steadily without reseeding for
fifty years or more.
Owing to the excessive rainfall of
winter and the heavy weed growth of
early spring, fall sowing of alfalfa has
not proved as successful as spring sow
ing. The ground should be plowed
deeply in tho fall if possible, manured
and replowed early in tho spring.
Where plowed rather late in the spring,
the land should be disced and harrowed
before plowing. If the soil is in tho
least sour, from 1,000 to 2,000 pounds
of unburned lime ground or in tho
lump should be applied very early in
tho spring, or in place of this, from
COO to 1,000 pounds of water slaked
lime may be sown about April first.
After tho spring plowing the irround
should be frequently harrowed to get
riu or trio reds, conserve the moist
ure and bring the seed bed into a uni
formly fine stato of tolth.
Tho seed should be sown from April
20th to May 1st, Just preceding the
sowing the land should be inoculated
with tho alfalfa bacteria by scattering
over tho seed bed about 200 pounds per
acre of soil taken from the surface foot
of an old alfalfa field. This alfalfa
soil should be mixed with about 400
pounds of the surface soil of the new
field to facilitate its even sowing. To
avoid exposing the inoculated soil to
the sunshine, which injures It, it
should be sown on a cloudy day or
towarus evening, ana Immediately har
If an aero be once successfully inoc
ulated, tho noxt year it will furnish a
soil supply for Inocu atimr other land.
No faith should be placed in Inoculat
ing the soil through the purchase of
inoculated seed, as under ordinary con
ditions this method is seldom success
ful. Immediately following tho inocula
tion the seed should be sown at the
rate of twenty pounds per acre, care
being taken to secure pure seed of good
germinating qualities. Germination
may roadily be tested by placing an
average 200 of the seed between moist
blotting paper, laid between the faces
of two dinner plates and pouring a
little iyUor in tho lower plato from
time to time.
Tho seed may be broadcasted and
harrowed in, but a moro even and vig
orous stand is secured, especially if
tho surface soil is a little dry, by drill
ing one half of tho seed at a time,

Tho field should bo mowed whenever
the weds begin to shade, tho alfalfa,
or whenever tho growth comes to a
standstill or beglnc to turn yellow; or
when tho new shoots of tho second
growth begin to appear; or when tho
plants show one-tenth in bloom. Tho
cutter bar should be set about C inches
above tho ground the first year, and
tho first cutting, If light, be left upon
the ground. It Is imperative that the
J crop should not be pastured tho first
Every year about April first a dress
ing of 100 pounds of land plaster
should be applied, and whllo the
ground is still soft, thorough cultiva
tion should bo given, with tho disc
harrow set i traight nnd weighted and
run crosswise, followed by the common
harrow. This cultivation keeps out
grass and words, splits the alfalfa
crown and thickens tho stand; keeps
the surface soil mellow and helps con
serve the moisture to carry the crop
through the dry months. If the soil is
poor a top drttsing of well rotted ma
nure applied in the fall will prove ben
eficial. It is well to let the alfalfa go
into the winter with a six or eight-inch
In Western Oregon the common va
riety of alfalfa should be used, prefer
ably Montana grown.
In pasturing alfalfa, to avoid bloat
ing, cattle and sheep should not be al
lowed to go on the field with an empty
stomach or when the plant is wet, ar.d
to prevent rooting, hogs should be
ringed. Where cut and fed green to
cows, thero is no danger of bloating.
An acre of alfalfa will furnish pas
ture for about ten grod sized hogs, or
summer green feed for ten cows.
