Rye ripens much earlier than and consequently is not sub- ject io damage from early frosts. 5. .Ripening ibefore other cereals, it distributes the harvest season over a longer period of time and justifies a farmer in hiring his harvest lalbor perhaps a month earlier than lie otherwise might, thereby securing it at a lower rate of wages. 6. A field ot winter rye affords fall pasturage and also the earliest green pasturage !n the spring that can be provided in this country. If early, the crop may safely he pastur- ed in the fall and unless stink weed, or other winter annual weeds, are present, early spring pasturing will not cause inury. It cut green it makes excellent fodder and will gen- erally yield more per acre than any other hay crop. When grown for this purpose two crops can usually he cut in the one season. Where the crop has not previously been grown, it is suggested that farmers sow a small acreage and try out the crop. Seed can he secured from any western seed house, or from farmers who have already the crop. Only western grown seed should 'be used as imported seed will often winter kill. By Talcing Lydia E.
