This historic book may have numerous typos and missing text. Purchasers can usually download a free scanned copy of the original book (without typos) from the publisher. Not indexed. Not illustrated. 1848 edition. Excerpt: .be too deeply cultivated for wheat. The roots of the wheat plant descend perpendicularly, and spread themselves laterally and broadly in search of food. It would be a mistake to plough too deeply for wheat at the time of its being sown; and it is always useful to roll or tread the If we could suppose a third of this saved, the saving would amount to 10,863,959 bushels per year. Suppose an annual increase of the crops of five bushels per acre, this would give an in-crease of production of 54,319,795 bushels. Add this, under improved cultivation, to the amount of seed saved, and the result would be 65,183,754 bushels. I believe, under an improved agriculture, this is quite practicable. What economical object could be more worthy of the Government of a country than, by every means within its reach, to encourage such production? soil after it is sown; but it is desirable that it should find a deep mellow bed below; and this is the case when it succeeds such plants as madder or tobacco, or especially where the soil has been deeply and thoroughly trenched. Wetness is peculiarly unfriendly to wheat. Surface water, that remains long upon the land; or wetness, which stagnates and remains long in the soil, are highly prejudicial to wheat. This gives the great value to the Deansten system of draining and subsoil-ploughing. The water which falls in such case soaks immediately into the ground and is carried off. Where there is no subsoil-ploughing, and where the soil is of a retentive nature, the laying up the soil in narrow, slightly rounded beds or stitches, so that the water may pass off at once by the intervals, is highly important. Wheat land cannot be too clean, or be kept too clean from weeds; and for this reason it should follow a crop which. Bookseller Inventory # AAV9781230360300
