the sound judgment that was exercised by the founders of the organization when they determined that the organization should be strictly By pursuing this course the Organ ized Farmers of the Prairie Provinces have wielded more real influence and accomplished more real good than any farmers organization yet and whether we are members of the Non Partisan League or not let us not jeopardize the work

continues to grow grain exclusively upon his A reduction in avail able plant food reduces his crop yioldst to the point of vanishing and weeds alio cut into those profits by increasing the amount of labor neces sary to get a they may even crowd the crop out lo any system of therefore the farmer is finally compelled to grow soil enriching or to apply home produced or artificial crops will also

poor chance to It has one drawback in that it must be run through an ensilage cutter before it can be used to advantage as a for age for and can only be cured in the silo for winter We have yet many points to study as to the best method of growing the crop and with what other forage it is going to combine to give the best re We are also trying out the crop on the dry lands in various parts ot the to determine its value under those We are not as yet urging farmers to grow the crop but merely asking them to try a small area to find out how it and those who have ensilage cutters can also try it
