THE ARCHER COUNTY NEWS
THURSDAY, MAY 15,
Landowners and operators, co-
| operating with the Little Wichita
and Upper West Fork Soil Con
servatiofi Districts, who planted
winter legumes last fall have had
excellent results with these crops
Albert Finkler of the Bowman
Huff community had 28 acres of
Austrian Winter Peas that was
planted around the 1st. of October
and fertilized with 100 pounds of
0-45-0 per acre at time of plant-
ing. During the 1st week of No-
vember, 28. Yearlings and two
cows were turned into this field
It was continuously grazed for 95
days except for a few days when
the soil was too wet. During the
grazing period only a small
amount of dry hay was fed to pre-
vent scouring. The yearlings made
an average gain of 100 pounds
each during the 95 days of graz-
On May 9, Mr. Finkler worked
the Austrian Winter Peas into the
soil surface. A representative
sample was taken from the field
at that time by the Archer City
SCS Technicians. They found the
top growth to be over 20,000
pounds of green material per acre.
What crop can beat this for graz-
ing and soil building?
Tests were .made on several
other District cooperators land to
determine the green weight yields
of Austrian Winter Peas. John
Cuba of the Megargel Community
planted approximately 45 acres
and it now has a cover of 23,000
pounds per acre. Bill Mahlir of
the Bowman Huff Community has
80 acres with a green cover of 22,
280 pounds of green material per
The largest yield found by the
SCS Technicians was on the Alvin
Jentsch Sr. land in the Bowman
Huff Community. Mr. Jentsch has
105 acres with a cover of 28,775
pounds of green material per acre.
These peas were planted around
the 1st. of November and fertilized
with over 100 pounds of super-
phosphate per acre.
Austrian Winter Peas is one of
the best soil improving crops that
can be used for this area. Why
don’t you try some this fall if
you have cropland that could
stand a little improving?
