to Nebraska farmers. The experi

some timo having a very marked ef

most potent cauf-o Consequently tho
authors recommend cutting ns early ns
condition of tho grain will allow and
stacking as soon as dry enough. Tho
need of a rich soil was also shown.
Experiments wore conducted to soo
if ono strain of wheat would run out
when used again and again for sood.
Tho results showed that where tho
proper caro was takon with tho sood
and tho soil was proporly manured
and tilled the yield tended to incroaso
all of which shows tho importance of
good soil culture.
Tho changes caused by different sea
sons und by climate were studied. It
was found that dry seasons cause tho
wheat to store up moro nitrogen in tho
form of protein and tho wet seasons
more Btarch Changing seed wheat
from ono place to another tended to
causo very decid d changes in compo
sition. That Settle's It.
