If you hare your soil prepared as has been suggested, and there comes an inch, of rainfall, the imolsture will go 10 to 15 times deeper than It would in unprepared soil, and it will take the wind and BO they will be protected when the hoi sun does come. Those little roots go out, and they need warmth from above ns well as moisture below. At this timi I advocate going over the ground with a section harrow. We want to aerate that soil. By aerating, letting the air and warmth in, wo incline the roots downward. ,.Thon give a, deeper plow- ing; then after that plow shallow. To obtain a maximum corn yield the roots must grow in tlic right direction under such, mechanical and other conditions as will enable thorn to secure a maxi- mum food supply that the plant can manufacture into stock, leaves and grain. After we have inclined them downwards, every time the soil worked we.give protection from the hot sun. Corn will stand a drought longer it1 it has all the roots to help it out.
