On the Farm
IV. Oat Growing
By C. V. GREGORY, '
Author of "Home Course In Modern
Copyrilht. 1909, by American Press
NEXT to wheat, oats are the most
widely grown small grain
crop, It Is a crop that Is ueed
ed on every farm for feed, es
pecially for young stock and horses.
In tho corn belt oats fill In a place In
tho rotation that cannot well 1m taken
by any other crop. The work of seed
ing and harvesting tits In well with the
work of growing a corn crop; hence
oats are and probably always will be
an important crop In the com belt
In spite of these reasons for growing
oats they art not usually considered to
lie a proiitable cmp. The price is less
thau that of com and the yield usual-
FIO. VII OOOD AND 1'OOR STACKS.
ly considerably lower. Most farmers
raise outs more because they have to
than because they think there Is any
money in it. If handled rightly, how
ever, oats can bo made a money crop.
One of the most Important points lu
oat growing is tho selection of seed
that is adapted to the locality. Oats
are a cool weather crop. The hot
midsummer weather of tho corn belt
is one of the chief factors causing low
oat yields. When the hot weather
strikes the wits they blight and rust
badly. Many times they crinkle down
and do not till well.
Advantage of Early Varieties.
The only way this can be avoided In
the corn belt is to sow early varieties.
These ripen before the hottest weather
comes and escape many of the trou
bles that affect later oats. Early va
rieties are much less susceptible to
rust than late ones are. The selection
of rust proof varieties Is the only way
of combating this disease, since, un
like smut, it cannot bo prevented by
treating the seed.
Experiments at the Iowa experiment
station show nine bushels more to the
ncre in favor of early varieties. The
average of tweve years experiments
at the Nebraska station gave the early
onts fourteen bushels to the ncre ad
vantage. In good oat years that Is.
those with n cool summer the differ
ence Is not so marked. In such sea
sons the late oats yielded seven bush
els to the acre less than the early,
while the medium oats yielded a little
more. In bad oat years and in the
corn belt four years out of five are bad
from the oats standpoint the early va
rieties yielded twenty-one bushels to
the acre more than the late and thir
teen bushels more than the medium.
The medium varieties are more con
venient, as they do not crowd in on
haying and coru plowing like the early
ones do. The use of Improved haying
machinery Is shortening the time re
quired for putting up the hay crop,
however. The advantage of early oats
In yield will In most cases more than
make up for the disadvantage of hav
ing the work crowded during the first
half of July. ,
Early oats have another advantage
In that they give the clover a bet
ter chance. Where the oats are not
got off the ground until the last of
July and dry weather follows, na It
so often does, the clover makes little
growth and Is ofteu killed out entire
ly. With the adoption of a, systematic
rotation clover will pearly always be
seeded with oats, so Kut this Is u point
that cannot be ignored.
It Is not advisable to ship tn oats
from a distance to seed the entire
field. Often you can get good early
seed from a neighbor at little more
than market price. If there are no
early oats In your community you can
send away for a few bushels of a new
variety and pliant them in a corner of
tho field by themselves. If they give
good satisfaction enough seed cao be
saved from them to seed the entire
field the nest season. In the northern
part of the United States and lu Can
nda, where the summers are cool, late
varieties can be profitably grown. In
such localities they give a greater
yield and a larger, plumper oat.
Preparing the Seed.
After the seed has been procured the
next step Is to get it Into shape to
sow. This means a liberal use of the
fanning mill. A large per cent of the
oats sown arc shoveled from the bin
directly Into the seeder Most farm
ers who do fan their oats simply run
them through once to blow out the
sticks and dirt and sieve out the weed
seed. It pays well to run the oats
through tho mill two cr threo times
to blow out nil tho ll'.it seed. The
work can be done In winter when
there Is little else to do. The light
oats that are blown out are Just aa
good for feed as the others, and the
heavy ones that are left are worth sev
eral times as much for seed. In ex
periments carried on to show the com
parative value of light and heavy oats
J fje li','ht seed yielded forty-seven bush
els to the acre, the medium fifty-four
and the heavy sixty-two. The differ
ence may not be this great every time,
but it will always lie great enough to
pay well for the. labor of fanning.
There is an objection to uslu tho
heavy oats for seed lu that they tend
to leeome a little later each year. This :
pan be avoided by Introducing some
new seed of an early variety every
few years. Directions for brooding
seed oats will be given In article 7.
After the oats are cleaned and grad
ed they should be treated for smut.
Smut Is a black fungus that grows
from a tiny spore that lodges beneath
the hull when the oat Is In bloom and
the kernel open. When the hull closes
the spore is held Inside until the next
season, when it sprouts and sends a
thread up through tho stem to the
head. There the smut grows, produc
ing a black mass where the bead
should be. Often as many ns 15 per
cent of the heads will be affected In
this way. These black heads are not
easily noticed, so that the damage Is
The simplest method of treatment Is
to spread the oats out on a tight floor
and sprinkle them with a solution of
one pound of formalin to forty gallous
of water. This amount is sulllelent
for forty bushels of oats. Shovel the
oats over two or three times until they
are thoroughly wet. and then pile them
up and cover them with blankets or
sacks. The fumes from the formalin,
will penetrate beneath the hull ami
kill the smut spores. In the morning
the oats should be spread out ngalu
and shoveled over occasionally until
dry. They can be sowed wet, but in
that case the seeder should be set to
sow about a bushel to the acre more,
as they do not run through ns readily.
This work should be done ou a warm
day. as freezing whilo the onts are wet
will injure the germination. This treat
ment costs only nbout a cent a bushel
and Is very effective.
' Preparing the Seed Bed.
One of the most neglected points In
oat culture Is the preparation of the
seed bed. Oats do better on a rather
firm seed bed. If tho field was inborn
the year previous It will not lie neces
sary to plow unless the ground l very
hard. It should bo disked thoroughly,
however, to cut up tho stalks and pul
verize the upper two or three inches.
It will usually be proiitable to let the
disk "lap half," as this does away
with ridges and leaves the lar.il l:i
better shape. One harrowing after the
disking leaves the ground In splendid
shape to receive the seed.
Methods of Seeding.
There are several methods of seed
ing, of which the end gate seeder Is
the worst and the disk drill the best.
The two main objects In seeding are
to get tho seed In evenly and at ap
proximately the same depth. The end
gate seeder fulfills neither of these re
quirements. The broadcast seeder scat
ters the seed evenly, but It is covered
no better than with the end gate seed
er since both depend upon the disk for
covering. The disk drill Is more ex
pensive and does not get over the
ground as rapidly, but it distributes
the seed evenly and puts it at the
same depth. The seed is dropped In
furrows made by the disks and thor
oughly covered, so that one harrowing
Is all that Is necessary after drilling.
Experiments show a considerable nd
vantage In yield In favor of the disk
At the Iowa station the average of
four years' experiments shewed nine
bushels to the acre In favor of drilling
over broadcasting. From half a bush
el to a bushel less seed to the acre is
required when a drill is used, as all
FIO. V1U HAVE GRAIN WELL SHOCKED.
the seed Is put where It can grow to
the best advuutage. Clover has a bet
ter chance In drilled grain. The drill
should be ruu north and south, so that
the sun can shine In between the row 9
on the little clover plants.
Harvesting the Crop.
Preparation for harvest should be
made by having tho binder In perfect
running order beforehand. If oats are
not cut as soon as ripe they will al
most surely go down and be lost.
Great care should be taken In shocking
to see that the bundles stand up firm
ly. If the straw is not too green the
Knocks should be capped, as a capped
shock will shed rain, better. A shock
that stauds up straight and is well
capped will shed a great deal of rain
without wetting in much. It Is much
better to stack than to thrash out of
the shock. The oats will sweut some
where, and they will be of better qual
ity If they do It In the stack Instead
of In the bin,' It has been proved many
times over that there Is nothing to hi
gained by thrashing onts from the
hhock. Oats that have been permitted
to go through the sweating process In
u well protected stack are always of
better quality than those which have
brrn hurried Into the thrasher.

The appetite of u whale Is wonder
ful. His chief diet consists of Jelly
fish. He hits simply to open his
mouth ami paddle along leisurely in
order to take in Jellyfish hy the cart
load. Such Is the method adopted by
the whalebone whale. The sperm
whale, on the contrary, captures huge
shoals of fish, weighing oftoif several
tons. Like his brother, tho whalebone
whale he must be constantly on tho
lookout for food. Otherwise he would
starve. As many as 14 seals have been
taken from a 30-feet "killer." Othei
fishes of enormous appetites are not
uncommon. The bluefish, for example
thrives on sardines and other small
fish. Most curious of all eaters Is the
hydra, a strange creature that can be
turned inside out without imparlug
Its appetite or Its power to eat.
