SOD MAIZE CROP
Another Good Crop of Feed Stuff
Raited By Panhandle
It was L. Johnson who raised a
big crop of yams last year and he
comes forward this year with fully
as good maize crop. The held of 70
acres was grown on new (sod) land,
broken last December. Mr. Johnson
says the crop is good and will make
a satisfactory yield.
In this connection, it could be
mentioned that this Iowa farmer has
has become thoroughly alive to the
matter of doing things aright, in fact
has adopted scientific methods in the
cultivation of his land. As an ex-
ample. He had prepared a small
field for rye for winter pasture. Sat-
urday afternoon, September 11th, he
seeded the field and so well had he
prepared the seed bed that on Thurs-
day morning following just 4 days
after, the plants were coming up well
all over the field. Having succeeded
thus well, Mr. Johonson began to
seed in 100 acres of wheat. The
work in preparing this field will not

1909, with a steam disk, followed by
a packer and harrow at the same
operation. A harrow has been used
after each heavy rain since. Last
week he made an examination of
the soil and found that there was

Crop of Feed Stuff—He
Farmed it Right.
T. A Osborne, who came from
( ariada a year ago and who resides
near Summerfteld, has J00 acres of
kattir and maize which will tnake a
fair yield. His neighbor. L. John-
son. reporti that the old land will
make not less tnan LS bushels and
the sod land about J5 bushels of
seed. rhe fodder and stalks are
extra. Mr Osborne planted the
crop on the old land about May 1,
before the rains carae and the soil
had tufticient moisture to bring up
the plant. This was the result of
proper cultivation which had con-
served the moisture. The crop hai
not suffered for moisture at anytime.
This crop will net Mr. Osborne
about $15 per acre, a good return
on twenty dollar I ind.
