It may be re marked in passing that the yield per fad den under these conditions is said to have been considerably higher than the averuke oC that obtained under the present perennial system. The essential'principles which are recommended for dry-farming at the present time are practically' identical with those which were employed for cotton in the early days of the intro- duction of commercial cotton-growing In Ksypt. The soil in the. first instance was thoroughly plowed and aerated, and was then tilled so that the part- V..JH.ICB were finely and Loosely .separated. pulverization of the soil enables tlie water 6f the lower levels to rise towards the-surface by at! a much slower rate than it would do were the panicles more closely com- pressed.
