Organic mutter In soils Is decayed
and decaying vegetable and animal
fragments. When In a thoroughly
decayed, gelatinous form It Is called
humus. Growth and decay of plants
Is the principal agency In the for
mation of humus. It becomes incor
porated Into tho soil by various mix
Good productive soils should con
tain two to six per cent organic
matter In tho surface seven Inches.
Very few sections of the county have
such an abundance of organic matter
In the soils that Its maintenance may
to ncglectod, while most of our soils
may be greatly Improved by Increas
ing the amount present. Tho only
method by which we can change
the physical composition of our soils
Is by Increasing the organic -matter
content. Organic matter Is highly
valuable both for its physical and
Chemically organic matter Is the
chief source of soil nitrogen. Most
of our soils seem rather too low -in
nitrogen when compared with many
other Oregon soils. Humus In arid
soils contains about fifteen icr cent
nitrogen wh.Uo the humus contained
In humid soils Is only about five per
cent nitrogen. Being the residues
of decayed plants humus contains In
fairly available form, all food ele
ments required by plants. Moreover,
the formation and decay of organic
matter is associated with great bac
terial activity and the formation ot
acid substances which In turn re-act
on the mineral particles In soils to
release potash and phosphorous.
Physically organic matter, through
Its flbroui. or gelatinous nature Im
proves the physical condition or tilth
by causing the soil particles to stick
together Into crumbs giving a good
mellow soil condition.
Organic mnttor Improves tho mois
ture content of soils because It nets

cause It kvops tho soil loose nud
easily mulched, that Is, It holds tho
soil particles together In clusters nud
prevents "puddling" or "running to
gether" and crusting.

and by loosening up tho soil so the

perlmcnts have been tried In which
differences of soveral degrees were

Itun down land moro frequently

There are several different crops that

grows through tho wholo season Is no
doubt tho peer of nil otbor permanent
crops- A mixture of oats, peas nnd
