At present thero are several

neighborhood of 160 men. While
these manufacture lumber primarily
for local consumption, not only are

Field For Tills Gives Outline
of Host Method to Follow.
Tho Increasing demand for alfalfa
seed has mado nocesssry the importa
tion of 3,000,000 pounds annually.
This seed could be readily grown at
homo. Tho localities best suited to
alfalfa seed production nro those of
but moderate precipitation and com
paratively high temperatures as tbe
soed ripens. Tho yery best seed Is
grown under dry farming or with
light Irrigation.
Prof. Bcudder of tho O. A. C. has
been a firm advocate of alfalfa seed
production In Eastern Oregon, and
wo aro now attempting to demon
strate the practicability of producing
this seed in cultivated rows on the
Metollus experiment field, with good
prospects of success.
Select medium deep soli that has
been clean fallowed or in cultivation.
Double disc, and plow In autumn.
If early spring plowing Is used, tho
ground should be disced and then
plowed six inches deep, then firmed
with tbe Campbell aubsurface packer.
Follow this up with frequent cultiva
tion to destroy weeds, fine the soil
and conserve tho moisture till seed
ing time.
A variety of seed In demand and a
good one to grow here Is tbe Grimm's
alfalfa. In any case use mature
northern grown seed. For seed pro
duction tho stand must be thin. Do
sure to provide a fine, moist, level,
firm seed bed which Is entirely free
from weeds.
Seeding may bo done In tbe lower
part of the county about tbe mlddto
of April and In the higher altitudes
threo or four weeks later. It Is best
to use a double disc press drill with
press wheel and gross box attach
ments and seed 1 Vi to 2 Inches deep.
For seed production stop up part of
the holes, seed In double rows about
,2 feet apart, using 2 or 3 pounds
of seed per acre.
Good Money Crop.
' The seeding should be followed
with a Dunham packer or corrugated
roller to firm tbe soil and leave a
(light mulch. No nurse crop should
bo used, except that whero soil blow
ing Is troublesome a drill row of bar-
,ley may be added between each dou
ble row of alfalfa and cultivated out
at tho first cultivation. Thorough.
'level cultivation should bo given, and
'the growth clipped back with sicklo
ibar set high once or twice the first
year. The following spring the disc
or alfalfa barrow may be run cross
wise the rows to loosen weeds and to
thin out. The wholo season's growth
shuld bo used for seed here, though
', a little early pasturing or early clip
ping may be necessary to retard tho
blooming till dry July weather. Mod
erate growth, abundant blossom and
abseneo of second growth Indicate
t g00jJ 8e(1 yjejj.
Rolling to lodge
tho alfalfa when In btoom may check
growth and help polleuate tho flow
ers. Alfalfa Is cut for seed when
two-thirds of tho pods are turned
nearly brown, using a bunoher at
tachment or reaper. It Is thrown
Into small cocks or stacked and then
threshed with a regular huller on the
ordinary tbrnlep when properly
equipped. Alfalfa grown for seed
production, especially on dry land or
whero Irrigation Is limited, will make
a good taonoy crop, and ono that can
be shipped to distant markets. It
is also an excellent crop for restor
ing soil fertility.
