In tho state of l.'tnh, whoi-u tho I precipitation ruus us low as eight to ten inches, the six dry farms of tho stato ugricultural department have adopted a plowing depth of Irom ten inches to a loot; and,thousands of dry farmers now ^lerating in that staty are plojy^ig that depth wltn excellent results. That Utah loads tbs 'west as a dry farming # �t�^^ spite ol its scanty precipi -ta^f^B can hardly be doubtod, and ' ^Ht is du�. la moasure, to an enUwrlslDK legislature and liberal appropriations, Tn Colorado, with a precipitation of from fourteen Inches upwards, we need at least eight or nine-Inch plowing. In most cases even deeper work will produce better crops, and Is of-Un more economical Sot the farmer than shallower plowinj with more Intense cultivation. lly many farmers, plowed sod is considered poor stul! to mlsc a crop on; but the opposite d and worked until perfectly One nn the ntirfa'ce. will raise bottorcrops than old land plowed much deoper, anil a successful experience on sod will often lead tha boginnor to a belief ir. shallow plowing. In thu lust flvo years thi a vera go yield of winter wheat in my neigh -iKirhood on seven-Inch land has r.ot exceeded fifteen bushels j�r acre; but some of my Ocriinin nctpjalntances who l>cll(!Vo In d�ep plowing, are averaging from twenty to thirty-flvo 'bushels or. nine and tin inches. These Kamo men are also raising about thirty bushels of corn per acre, whllo tho shallow plowcrs have given up raising anything in that lino but fodder. In the last twenty-five years wc ! have had six dry years in which ' many gave up In despair. farmers The only crops that came through was a few stands of corn and po  latoes which were planted in grouu I plowed over eight Inches deep, and which yielded good crops. Many of the "rain belters" were forced to abandon their farms for no reason whatever, except that they wore shallow plowers, while the few who know how to plow deeply have had no difllcully In rulsing crops in dry or wot years; and are still er. the ground ready to reap a handsome profit for tho in values due to th> adoption of a proper system of arid agriculture. In planting alfalfa th.-> first season's stand and growth depend entirely on tho depth of the plowing. In shallow plowed land many of the plants j mil uill dry out in dry weather after attaining a height of six or seven Inches, leaving a poor *t�n4. The average for ten ymrs on my happened along exactly when they were most needed. Tho water contained in tho plowed ground at date of seeding was not more than three Inches, yet the corn this season vas among the finest ever raised. The discrepancy between the test tor the amount of water needed for a crop and the actual facts presented 'by those whose business It Is to raise crops will be found, I think, In tho idea that a plant requires and uses up a certain percentage of moisture regularly throughout the saas�a regardless of weather condition*, there as such Is not the case. As Soon as drouth commences the natural adaptability of th-j p'an% U> adverse ccBdltlons begins to manifest Itself, the rank growth of straw und stalk ceases, the leaves toughen and In some cases turn edgeways to tho sun. transpiration diminishes and its mcrgles become concentrated u*i tho final production of the scod or grain by which its species Is perpetrated. The tallest wheat seldom gives the largwt yield, nwlthur do big com stalks always produce the targ*f*UiarH This hailing process In growth is rwrfctjily Mtural ut.d, if not too prolonged, has no shrinking effect on the yield. On l%o other hand, the crop that has plenty of water and to sparcwill transpire nearly twice as much as th# dry crop and produce a larger amount of dry matter; hut the excess will bo almost entirely in tho form of stalk and straw.
