Profits start with production, and to produce we
must keep improving the soil. Plant legume cover
crops, sue.: as vetch and rye for fall and winter.
Plant summer cover. Permit weed growth to be re-
turned to the soil before seed matures. Fertilize
your pastures for better grazing. Plant permanent,
year-round grasses on pasturelands. Your Soil Con-
servation Supervisor will be glad to help you set up
a good workable program for your owm land. Don’t
wait! Get started now, for greater farm profits
year after year!
