Telephone 344 Office Smith Street J CULTIVATE THE SOIL TO DE- STROY THE WEEDS The time "arrived. wll6B fanners are again, cultivating the soil for the season's crop. In cultivating the soil it is well to handle it in such, a way that the weeds will be kept un- der control. The majority of the noxious weeds in Alberta are one year, plants, or annuals, and belong to the mustard family. The seeds of the mustards are of an oily na- ture and will live in the ground for a long period without losing tn'eir vi- tality, germinating when brought un- der the proper conditions. The only way to eradicate them is to get the seeds to germinate and kill the plants seeds will germinate they must be while they are young, before they mature their seed. Before these very close to the surface of the soil, not deeper than two inches, and the soil must be firmly packed around the seed. If there were many weeds hi last year's crop, it will be found advisable to burn the stubble off in the spring. This will destroy many of the seeds that are on the surface of the ground and will render :the soil more cultivated. If the stubble is burned, care should be tak en to prevent prairie fires by plough-; ing around the field. The soil should then be disced and harrowed. This will encourage the seeds near the sur- face of the ground to germinate, and by successive cultivations with the disc and harrow 'they will be des- troyed and other seeds brought un- der such conditions that they will germinate. If this practice of disc- ing and harrowing the field ia fol- lowed up to the first of June a large number of weed seeds at the surface of the ground will have been des- troyed. The land can then be plough ed and packed if possible and an ear- ly maturing variety of barley aown. In northern Alberta it is safe to sow beardless bai ley as late as the middle of June. When the crop is about four inches high and the roots are firmly estab- lished in the soil, it should rowed with a light lever harrow with sloping teeth. This will destroy the weed soeds that have started as well as encourage the growth of the crop. The harrowing should not be done when the ground it wet, an the dirt will stick to the harrows and hwve j tendency to destroy of the grain If there are only few left, is time io plough for wheat.
