Alberta Good for Seed Peas An interesting address on "Growing of Seed Teas Commercially" was giv- en by Allan P. Senior, ot Tv-ln Falls, Idaho. In opening he saiil: "About fifteen yearn ago in South- ern Idaho, south of tho Snake Illver, a Iract of acres was opened for settlement, and In n few years tho sage brush was all removed, and that large acreage was practically nil in alfalfa. In Ihe fall nf the year there were slacks of hay everywhere. It looked as if there were a million In; per ton in the shack. That sec- tion is known all over the Slates as the Twin.Falls country. It was suf- fering from the evils of all one crop condition that will exist In Alberta -very shortly. They real- ized their condition, aud with the as- sislance of the.hanks, they brought in carloads ot dairy stock. They plauted potatoes aud beans and fruit trees by the hundred thousand, and one brave spirit even started a c nery, and as a result ot diversified crops, the value of lands have risen from J25 per acre iu 1905 to }750 per acre kp 1920, with an average valne for the tract of JluO an acre. The dry farming districts still have the same old crop once In every three or tour years. The same old buildings are there as well as the same old laud values ot to au acre. Thus is the value of Irrigation demonstrat- ed. came the large seed houses to this country.'and induced the farm- ers to try the growing ot seed peas, and as the price was filed by con- ,tract the farmer knew exactly what he. was going to receive for his pro duct it looked good to the farmers and they went in for this crop to the tune of five or six thousand acres. This was continued with success, un- til the pea weevil hit the country and at Ihe present time the growing ol seed peas has practically stopped lu that section." He then proceeded to discuss the growing of seed peas by explaining that after the selection ot the lane Intended for a pea crop, usually alfalfa laud, we crown it. About the middle of August would he tbe best time so as to give sufficient time for tub crowns-to' die.. Irrigate, if possible Just before.plowing, then plow sever or would be bet tor.

I wish to stale at this time that many farmers in'their hurry to get their crops in, Blight this par ticular part' of the work, and late on in the irrigation season do with the hands.what they could have done with horse power. He- then outlined the method o seeding and-mentioned the varieties of peas used, about 120 pounds ot seei per acre were; used. Following seed ing corrugating was done, then har rowing, after the peas piit. The Jast irrigation ;should be appftsd after the poda are formed. Harvesting should commence before the peas are fully ripe. He dealt briefly with bligh and pea-weavil as troubles the pea grower must expect to moot. Ground used for he explained, must be heavily manured or the yield will de- rease. A Few Comparisons Having studied conditions- in the irrigated sections of Alberta, Mr. Sen lor reached the conclusion: "With re card to the soils-of Alberta and Jdnhc I would call Coaldale a medium sands loam, Twin Fans Lava ash, and St. Anthony a 'black sandy loam. The percentage ot humu: and nitrogen In. Alberta soil is large, In Twin Fall and St. Anthony soil small. Therefore Alberta soils niturally are richer am moro lasting, and peas, a soll-hutlde improve this naturelly lor tile soil. "We find that the growing season is practically as long in Alberta a in the upper Snake river valley; tha Ihe soil conditions are canal it no superior; that the railroad facilltie are'equal In every respect, and tha the markets tor this commodity arc equally as good, and so, viewing th possibilities from every angle, 1 am fully convinced that the growing o seed.peas commercially is practica and financially, should bo a Success and should ho an important factor in tho rotation oniali diversified farms. "I can come to no other conclusion that Alberta' possibilities as a nea growing country would ho! t any and superior lo declare! Mr. Senior in closing.
