FARM WORK FOR MARCH.
The excessive rains and cold of the
past four months have so interfered with
the usual current of farm operations
that very little in the way of plowing
land for spring and summer crops had
been done up to the 20th February.
The area in wheat and fall sown oats
was cat short for want of suitable weath
er for putting in those crops; and south
of 32 degrees most of the oats sown there
were killed by cold. A considerable
quantity of cotton was left to be picked
as late as the first of February.
Georgia farmers are at least one month
behind in ths work of preparation for
planting. The occasion calls for the dis
play of the most active energy and skill
ful management to make up for lost
time. It will not do to postpone the
planting of corn and cotton one month.
On the other hand it is not wise to plant
without due preparation of at least the
seed bed for the corn. Under such cir
cumstances it is wine to prepare a part
of the land and plant it at the usual
time; then prepare otherland and plant,
ar.d so on until all is done. By good
management and by defeiring to a more
convenient season everything that is
not necessary to the success of the next
crop, the lost time may be recovered and
the corn and cotton planted in good
season. In the southern parts of our ter
ritory where the planting season is at
hand, the soil is generally light and eas
ily worked, and the land for the corn
crop may be prepared by throwing five,
or even three furrows together, and
planting on the bed thus formed, break
ing out the middles afterward. This is
rather a risky business, however, *espe
cially on soils that become hard in dry
weather; and dry weather in April may
be reasonably expected, after so much
rain during tne winter.
We have long advocated the propriety
of planting corn on beds thrown up with
the plow, rather than in the water fur
row, or even on flushed surface. The
opening furrow should be made in the
centre of the bed and as deep as a broad
and long shovel will make it at two
trips, and the corn planted at the bottom
of this farrow and covered lightly by a
small double too'hed harrow without
disturbing the edges of the furrow. Plan
ted in this way the plants will be pro
tected from frost by the walls of the fur
row. We have seen fields planted in
this way, where the plants were scarcely
touched by frost and yet the general sur
face of the ground was frozen.
Potatoes fir draws or slips, should
be bedded during the first warm spell.
For this purpose the small potatoes are
more convenient, and go much further,
and the plants from them produce as
good potatoes as from large tubers. Po
tatoes are uot seeds except in the sense
that they are used for propagating a new
crop, and we may not expect to produce
large potatoes by merely planting large
roots. They are analogous to cuttings,
and we may'as well expect to secure a
large tree or bush, by propagating from
a large cutting, as to get large potatoes
because we have used large ones for
planting. This’is true also of Irish po
tatoes and other tubers.
For the potato bed select a location
on the south side of a fence or building
so that the bed may get the full benefit
of the warm sun, and at the same time
be protected from cold winds. Cover
the space marked out, with a thick coat
of fine, well rotted stable manure and
spade in deeply with a fork, mixing all
tho r ougly and making all fine and
smooth. Lay the potatoes as close as
the thickeness of the finger apart, press
them evenly into the mellow soil by
means of a board, and cover with sandy
loam or other light soil which is free
from seeds of weeds. Tne covering
should be about two inches thick. If too
shallow, the plants will not throw out
rootlets readily. Leached ashes is an ex
cellent top dressing for a potato bed,
and there is nothing better than soap
suds from the wash-place for watering.
CORK STALK SUGAR.
At the recent meeting of the American
Agricultural Association m New York,
Dr. Peter Collier made some interesting
remarks concerning the valuable process
of extracting sugar from corn stalks and
sorghum. He said:
“During the past year there have been
examinations made of 38 varities of sorg
hum grown in, and received from 14 dif
ferent States, and from 9 varieties of In
dian corn. The results from analyses
made, 1,318 in all, of the sorghums, show
ed them to yield on an average 1,682
pounds of available sugar. From four
of these varieties the sugar was extracted
in quantity and at a rate of fully 2,000
pounds per acre. As to the corn stalks
the results were most satisfactory, but
the experiments were not so numberous
as with soaghum. An average of 26 an
alyses of the 9 varieties examined show
edthem to contain in their juice an
amount of sugar greater in quantity than
the average of the best 30 specimens of
60 specimens of sugar-beets grown in
different parts of the country. After a
large crop of ripe corn had been gather
ed the stalks yielded at the rate of over
<XW pounds of sugar to the acre, and there
appears no reason to doubt that this re
sult could be obtained upon a large scale.
In view of these results! feel justified in
saying that there appears no reason to
justify us in importing sugar which would
- not justify our Importation of corn and
wheat. In view also of the gradual but
■decided improvement of our Western
lands, which a carefully compiled result
of the acreage yield for the past 18 years
establishes, it seems most wise that we
-turn our earnest attention to this question
of sugar production. You are also aware
that the ash of corn is composed of mat
ter derived from the earth, and unfor
tunately consists of those two substances
least abundant and most valuable, viz,
phosphoric acid and potash. Indeed, so
great is our corn crop—occupying 37 per
cent.of our cultivated landsin the United
States as it does—that at the prices we
pay for these two substances the amount
present in our corn crop aggregates the
enormous sum of over $100,000,000,
while the entire value of our com crop
is about $500,000,000, so that when the
time comes, as come it may, that to keep
up the fertility of our Western lands we
must return what we take from the
ground, it will require, as will be seen,
a sum equal to 20 per cent of the entire ,
value of a crop."
• THE CHRISTIAN INDEX AND SOUTH-WESTERN BAPTIST: THURSDAY, MARCH 3, 1881.
BARLE Y-RICE -PEAS.
A correspondent writing from Medi
na, Tennessee, enquires as follows:
I want to know the time and mode of
planting or sowing barley and what
kind of land is best suited to it. Also,
the time it is harvested and if it is
threshed like wheat, and the average
I want also the same information con
cerning upland rice. If there are any
whippoorwill peas in the market and the
price per bushel.
As most of our realers know, barley
is grown to a very limited extent in the
South. We do not remember to have
seen more than five acres in a patch,
(and that during the war) in Georgia. It
i-t grown chiefly on rich grazing lots near
the house and is rarely harvested for the
seed. In the North and West and par
ticularly in Canada, it is largely grown
for malting purposes—tint is, making
lager, and other kinds of beer.
it is usually sown about the same
time, era little latter than wheat; ar.d
where wheat does better sown in spring
(as is the case in the case in the North
west) barley is also sown in spring—as
early as the ground can be worked after
the winter freezes are oyer.
Barley delights in a rich soil, a me
dium between heavy clay and light san
dy, and should be seeded at the rate of
from one and a half to two and a naif
bushels per acre when grown for harvest
ing as grain. But for grazing purposes,
orgreensoiiing, the quantity per acre,
should be not less than four bushels, on
very rich land.
When sown at the same as wheat, it
ripens a little earlier, and should be
promptly harvested in precisely the
same way as other grain, and is thresh
ed in the same manner.
The yield per acre is somewhat great
er than that of wheat.
Rice is now grown to a limited, but
annually increasing extent on the up
lands of Georgia. There is no special
skill required in its cultivation, and fair
crops may be made on high, dry lands.
The seed are sown late in spring, or
about the usual time of planting cotton
and tender vegetables, in drills two or
three feet apart The seed may be sown
continuously and the plants chopped
out so as to leave a bunch every twelve
or eighteen inches, or dropped at first
in bunches of ten to twelve grains. The
cultivation is simple, the object being to
keep clear of grass and weeds. The
rice will be ripe in about four to five
months and must then be cut with a
sickle. After it is thoroughly dry it is
hauled up and threshed like wheat. The
most troublesome and inconvenient ope
ration connected with rice culture, is
cleaning the rough rice, or removing the
husks. Several efforts have been made
to perfect a small, cheap rice huller, for
domestic use, but hitherto, without sub
stantial success. Most of the rice grown
in the lower parts of the States of Geor
gia and South Carolina, goes to market
ia Charleston and Savannah ia its rough
state and is cleaned in the large steam
rice mills in those cities. There are,
however, several small custom mills in
different parts of Georgia, that do satis
factory work—cleaning at the rate of a
hundred bushels or more a day.
There is no reason why rice may not
be successfully grown in Middle and
West Tennessee. It grows well in
White County, Georgia.
The yield of upland rice in Georgia
may be safely stated as twice that of
corn on the same land and with same
seasons, or from twenty to seventy bush
els (rough rice) per acre.
The market in Atlanta is almost bare
of seed ccw peas. Merchants are asking
$1.50 per b'tshel for the whippoorwill
peas. The last fall season was exceed
ingly wet, and unfavorable for saving
anything —especially cow peas. Seed
will be very scarce and dear in Spring
—in Georgia at least—unless Tennessee
can supply the demand.
