Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - June 26, 1920, Lethbridge, Alberta PAGE EIGHT THIi LBtHBRinOE DAILY HERALD SATURDAY, JUNK 2C. 1023 OF INTEREST TO THE Winter Rye-Its Cultivation, Pasturage, Harvesting (By Prof. James Murray, Superintend- ent Fv.rms, Noble VeuuJatiou Ltd., Nobleford, near Lelh- bridge, The unfortunate crop conditions, that eiist In many parts ot Southern Alberta through soil drifting have re- sulted ic unprecedented attention be- ing directed to winter or tall rye as a crop that might be uSiliied to a much greater extent than heretofore. The record of the crop warrants the belief that it is worthy of more ex- tensive cultivation. U has been des- pised in the niflloly because it is known as 3 poor land crop but who know It best are its most enthus- iastic supporters. Its growing popularity is evidenced by the rapid increase in acreage throughout the province. In 1915 tbe acreage ir. Alberta was only while In 1919 this had increased-to 500 per cent in nre years. This increase Is due la the consist- ently good yield that it gives even under adverse conditions aud the fact Ibat It is net only useful as a cash crop tor sale but for a variety of other purposes. Toe average yield during the five year period in Alberta was 19.9 bushels per aore whereas wheat yielded bushels. It has been grown locally to a greater'or less ex- tent for several years and lias usually pnxluced from ten to fifteen per cent more per acre than irneat. The aver- age price per bushel has been (or five years and that of wheat J1.51 per therefore, liltte difference In tbe cash value ot an acre of wheat and one of rye. Advantages in Alberta While winter rye makes a scad showing as a cash crop compared with wheat it has oilier advantages which commend it as a crop worthy of being sown, on every farm in Southern Al- berta. There is always greater safety in having a variety of crops, and rye is recommended as -an additional crop, one to replace any of 'those now, successfully grown. Its advan- tages may be briefly summarized as 1.- Being Fown in late summer or early fr.ll II forms a covering over the ground quickly and thus prevents soil drifting during fall, winter aud spring. When sown with this particularly in vleiv It is oi great importance that it or to bf. rye- cut for Uiy after it is ia held in June.
