H. W. Campbell, noall/.lng tlie fact thai few fi-ihp.ru comprehended the vital Import-anre i f the sub-surface packer, it ooptriltily is not out of place In this mi mix-r to devote considerable space to Its merits. In the first place, let tin consider some of the practical demonstrations of the effect of packing tho under port-Ion of the furrow. The first, experiment which really colled my attention to sub-packing as the direct cause of increased yield was in 1888. In 1888 we had harvested tho liest crop of spring wheat I had ever seen in any section. Th*ta was in the northern part of South Dakota. -:hc yield tielng more than 40 bushels pot-acre. The straw was long awl stilt and the harvester was rulswl to the highest point In order that as little unnecessary si row as possible need bo cut to handle. In tine time the field was- cleared �f the crop and the plow-ing done to a fair depth. On account of no ruin that fall the noil was rather dry (hiring the winter. Considerable snow fell, however, so that In tho spuing all of the plowed ground '.o the.full depth of plowing was ntoist. Work of harrowing and seeding began as soon ns the frost would permit. First, three horses vi*re driven over the fieM attached to a harriw, second, Iwo horses attached lo a seeder, and third, three horses ..I-laiho.l to the harrow the ie*iiid time- Uolng over the field three t-inies with these teams resulted In mniy hoof prints. Strange as it may seem, the only wheat that grow to any i*easonahle height �nd pro -dured heads of grain was grown In these hoof prints where tho weight of the hoi-.*** had made the soil Dim to the suh-soil below. In tlh* remainder of the field the lop soil uas -hcM up from the sub-soil hy .the long stulrtitc that hod lieen turned under the fall Wefore. Two years Inter we rented IflO acres and the seed was put in with an end-gate wee*-nerally was thin and short, while in these wh(s*l tracks it was at least u half taller, much thicker and productSve of a far hotter lierry.
