Economic Benefit "la conclusion I wish to reiterate the economic benefit to the Individual farmer and to the country la .general ,K. land down as rapidly as it is planted Is of vital Importance as fro- (tuoutly coasiderable mottture Is lost by delaying the operation necessary tii accomplish this.

HAVE YOUR SEED TESTED Results of germination tests with samples ot oats grown by farin- also raised. Mr. Noble has beeu al- pounds laining success tn his work to a re- Tan markable degree, The securing oi suitable fodder crops as feed for his! put through the use of the silo, and tho feeding of silage. As 1 have said this advantage Is a result of lower costs and of Increasing land values, and Rlso of Increased stock carrying power per acre and per farm. I would urge that each one of you become an en- thusiastic booster for silos and silage In your own community. You must recognize the national service you can render hy encouraging the erec- tion ot silos on every dairy farm. The Increased prosperity which will re- sult from a successful silo building campaign will bo reflected In every de- partment of our national life." How to Seed Sunflowers give the best results, states Mr. Hutton, when seeded with a srala drill about three feet apart. The crop is easily cultivated.
