Field Meeting at D. M. White Farm,
Saturday, July 13
There will be a field meeting at the farm of D. M. White east of town next Saturday afternoon, July 18, at 2 p.m. for the purpose of seeing the crop grown on the experimental plots and noting the result secured by the State University.
The experimental field at the White farm has been operated by the University for 16 years. A four year rotation system is followed, corn, oats, clover and wheat. The field is in winter wheat at the present time and some of the plots will yield at least 25 bushels per acre. All the plots where phosphorous has been used, will give a fair yield while the other fertilizers will probably not pay for their application. Applications of limestone have not proven profitable upon this soil type even when clover is grown. No manure is used as the fertility is kept up by the use of fertilizers and crop residues taken from the land itself.
The wide variation in results secured this year on this field should be of interest to every farmer in Lake county who is trying to maintain his soil fertility. The wheat will vary from a total failure to a very profitable crop-all due to the methods of soil management.
Mr. H. C. Gilkerson and some other members of the Soils Department of the University of Illinois will be present to explain the methods of treatments and returns secured from each.
The methods practiced on this field are applicable upon almost every farm in Lake county.
