SOUR SOIL ★ OUR STRENGTHS
Good pasture is essential in
Collin Soil Conservation District
for profitable livestock produc-
tion. Since livestock is an impor-
tant source of income in this
area, pastures deserve good treat-
Dry weather and the overgraz-
ing that it has brought on has1
deft pastures in an extremely
weakened condition say Soil Con-
servation Service technicians as-
sisting the District. Ordinarily,
grass will produce enough top
growth within 10 to 15 days after
it puts out in the spring to make
it grow productively. In its pres-
ent weakened condition it will
likely take 30 to 60 days to grow
enough top growth for a normal
Livestock should be held off
[pastures so they can develop the
required top growth as rapidly as
possible, say the technicians. They
►suggest grazing small grain as
late as possible and planting clov-
ers or sudan grass for supple-
mental grazing on up in the sum-
Many pastures should be de-
ferred or grazed lightly during
the coming season so the grass
can develop into a vigorous stand
hnd provide litter over the
ground. Pasture which has litter
on the ground soaks up two and
one-half times as much water as
[pasture that doesn't have ground
Along with deferring or rest-
ing, some pastures will need fer-
tilizing and overseeding to bring
Ithe grass back. Weed control is
plso important if pasture is to
(make quick recovery.

HOUSE PLANTS need a good
dusting every now and then, not
only to give them a brighter ap-
pearance, but the dust which set-
tles on the leaves seriously inter-
iferes with the proper function of
the leaves. Depending on condi-
tions, they may need washing
once a week or every two uteeks.
Use a soft sponge or spray with
water. Gardners who have not
already spaded up and fertilized
their soil should do so now. The
ground should be permitted to get
/the benefit of rains and maybe
snow. Spread several inches of
fertilizer on the surface of the
ground before spading and fork-
ing. This rich food will be good
for the young plants coming up
before long. Spray or dust for

Superphosphate, dug in if you
failed to do this either in January
or February. Frost kills much
tender foliage. If plants are
sprinkled with hose before sun
strikes them, many may be saved.
Fish ponds should be cleaned
out before spawning begins. Give
Ithe fish an epsom salts bath (3
tablespoons to a tub of water).
It acts as a spring tonic. If fish
are injured, place in a separate
bucket with 8-10 drops of mer-
curochrome to 1 gallon of water
for about 10 minutes.
