The Physics of Soil Moisture Two Practical Addresses Given at the 0ry Farming Congress filth. -Remember; "that; good tilth, if, of the majority.-, of .-crops as the irri- it ''doe's' not .-pay' One of Che most interesting papers yet given -at the Dry Farming Con- gxess was that given by Dr. H. H. of. Highmore, S. D., on "The Reiatioirof Physical Condition of Soils .to the Movement of Soil Moisture." __ he'said: "Being composed as the soil of disintegrated-rock it is evident that the soil not occupy all of the space-in the volume. Into the pore spaces leftjbetween the soil grains, the water finds its way and the amount of water that will contain depends upon -the nu'inoer' of pore spaces .the --soil tides the greater -are' the -number .pore spaces, and, the greater amount of it; wiir hold.

This causes the soil to shrink in volume, and the sou parr-icles being now 'brought "within close enough relationship with each other that the power of -cohesion- may act between them, water, .-readily passed from one soil grain to another. This has been incorrectly called capil- larity. "I-t is not because capillary tubes are formed in a crusted soil that water is lost by capillarity, but because, the 'soil grains during the drying process have.been-so closely each' other that the dry vspil-f grains steals the water frork the moist ones below and carries it in a stream from one soil particle to another until fin- ally i-t "reaches the uppermost one., when it is carried off into the air by 'evaporation. If a soil thst has been subjected to the drying and contract- ing proc-sss be stirred with any im- plement the soil particles will be sep; so far apart that they will lie beyond cohesive rtinge of each other Irr.'a soil so treated it is next to im- possible -Xor water to travel'from one grain to another and thus the "efficacy of the dust -mulch.) In tins case the water rises by capillarity from the moist soil below until it comes into contact with the dry. loose and' separated particles of the mulch where it is diverted from its upward course."

"Success in dry farming depends most entirely on the condition of the subsoil. In speaking of the. subsoij we use the word to mean the solid ground underneath the. plowed sur- face. If it is kept moist -the .roots q; crops vv-ill penetrate it; otherwise they will not. "The normal length" of the roots of small grain is three to feety- corn four to seven feet or over: it' the farmer plows only six or s inches and his subsoil, through batt management, is dry. the roots -never iuto it and he'is trying to raise a crop on seven inches which need; four fee.t, and if he gets only three-bi four Dushels to the acre he -wonders what the trouble is. The deeper Aha plowing jhe is from' the- surface and the longer it takes" to dry out. Drouth, as we all know commences at the surface and goes down inch by inch a little at a time and it takes about three times as Ionr5 to dry out ten inches as it does six: for every inch you go down the" slow- er the action oC the drying out pro- cess, and since the plowed land oh top of the subsoil acts as a mulch, il is an utter impossibility when onco the subsoil is wet up for any drouth, to dry it out so that the roors of crops will not penetrate it. provided the plowing is good and deep. "On our ranch when we have three feet of wet subsoil with a 10-inch mulch of plowed laud above it und the surface cultivated besides, we don't care live cents whether it rains or not. When the glorious -June weath er commences, which the shallow plowers cali a drouth, we put a good mulch on our crops and go fishing. but to be fair. I must a-dd that an average precipitation is close on 15 inches. It makes all ilie difference in the world whether you farm on the surface or farm on the subsoil. In r. wet year shallow plowing often give? ;ood results and fools the farmer, for the reason that if there is enough moisture to wet the subsoil the root? will go into n and he gets a crop m spite oi poor- plowing. Our Canadian friends have an atl vantage in- the deep freezing of their subsoils, which in some parts do- no! thaw out at the lower depths -untii wheat planting time-.
