and the soil retained moisture
longer after each irrigation.
There was evidence that the
sawdust treated plot had sub
stantially higher yield per acre.
The beets analyzed hy the Amer
ican Crystal Sugar Company
were slightly higher in sugar
content and purity.
The American Crystal Sugar
Company is constantly seeking
ways to improve the tilth and
yield of the western Montana
beet fields. Large scale tests,
using planer shavings, are now
being conducted. Results of the
tests showed that the ground
treated with wood waste mater
ially improved in tilth and mois
ture holding capacity.
Soil organic matter serves as
food for various types of desir
able micro-organisms, supplies
essential elements for re-use by
succeeding plants, improves the
physical qualities of the soil, and
dts presence aids in controlling
erosion by wind and water. In
'mulch form it increases water
intake, reduces water loss, low
ers soil temperature, insulates
the soil against quick freezes,
thus protecting the worm popu
lation, absorbs the energy of rain
drop impact on the soil, and acts
as a barrier to flowing surface
Wood is a cheap organic mat
ter. It differs from other organic
substances only in degree of its
physical and chemical structure,
subject to the same decomposi
tion forces as hay, straw and
green manure crops. Farmers
using wood as a soil conditioner
have found that it does not make
the soil sour and acid.
Exploitive agriculture is min
ing the humus from our fertile
fields. As the soil organic con
tent decreases, croD vields de
crease and soil erosion increases'.
Ample supplies of wood for
agricultural use are available in
the forests. There is nothing
more important to our welfare as
a nation than ample acres of
fertile, productive, erosion -proof,
ed farm land. Wood can contrib
ute to this need.
