New Forage Plant.
The island of Saghaiien, lying be
tween Japan and Siberia, has given
to the world a plant that promises
to be as valuable as alfalfa for graz
ing purposes, and it has the advant
age of growing where alfalfa will not
thrive. The new plant is called
sacaline. It resists drought as no
other vegetable growth can. It is
also adapted to wet and swampy
places. Its roots are tremendous
and spread all round, and that is
why it can thrive anywhere. .
Sacaline has been tested as a for
age plant in Iowa and in California,
and in both states it has met un
qualified approval. Swampy, ragged
spots where nothing else will grow
may be planted with it, and it will
quickly cover the ground and afford
food alike to sh?ep, horses, cattle
and swine. It growes to a height of
14 feet. Another name for it is
giant knot weed. Attention was
first drawn to it as a forage plant in
France two years ago. A great
drought was on, and pastures were
dried up. Sacaline had been planted
and reared to a considerable extent
as an ornamental growth. But dur
ing the drought it was observed that
domestic animals ate it greedily and
fattened on it, while the more it was
browsed at the more it grew. The
idea was then conceived of cultivat
ing it as a domestic forage plant,
which was done with great success.
Sacaline will be especially valuable
at the time the pasture fields of the
country dry up in August and Sep
tember. It is to be hoped the agri
cultural stations in all the states will
test it thoroughly for farmers and
put them in the way of procuring it
if its value is equal to what is claimed
