Some Pointers on the Seed Ques
tion That Will Prove
From Wednesday's Dally.
Is that seed corn picked yet?
Really, it should have boon picked
throe, weeks ago. Hut during the
last two weeks the germinating
power has probably not been in
jured in the least, and if you put
the oars in a dry, cool, airy place,
where the ears will not touch each
otner, ami where rats and mice
cannot get at them, you will al
most surely have seed corn which
will germinate to 100 per cent
Over much of our territory the
fall weal her has been unusually
wet. It is especially important,
therefore, that the seed corn, as
soon as picked, be placed where it
will dry out rapidly. An airy at tie
is a splendid place, the windows
being kept open on the warm, dry
days, and closed on the cold, wet
days. The corn is not put in piles
in this altie, but immediately on
being picked is hung up, each ear
to itself, or put in seed corn racks
or on a seed corn tree. A seed
corn tree is easily made by nail
ing a live-inch post, or a ixi to a
two-inch board about two feet
square, or any other platform
which is large enough to hold it
upright. Then every few inches
on the upright post, finishing
nails are driven in rows. The
seed corn is then bung up merely
by pushing the butts over the
Usually it is not necessary lo
use a lire to dry out seed corn.
Hut sometimes in the cold, wet
season, it may pay to keep a small
lire going part of the lime. Do
not let the temperature run much
over CO degrees, or you may spoil
the germination by causing the
moisl, new corn to sprout.
Remember that after corn is
once thoroughly dried out, it will
stand any amount of freezing, but
that while it is wet, a few degrees
below freezing will often destroy
the germinating power. Especially
is this I rue if I he corn has been
kept iu a warm, moisl place, and
the germ has just started lo
sprout. Hy looking at the outside
of the kernel, you cannot tell
whether or not this has happened.
You can be sure that it has not
happened by keeping I be corn in
a dry, cool, airy place where the
ears do not touch each other.
