In Limestone Region where no Fula has been grown for a number of years natural spreads and seems to remain in the soil for a number of years. Natural inoculation is sometimes secured through bacteria that adhere to the seed although this is More numerous on rough coated seeds than on Alfalfa. It has been frequently noticed in the raising of Alfalfa that Only a few plants would survive the first year upon examination it has been found that these plants have nodules in the roots due in All probability to bacteria on the seeds. If a Field of this kind of plants is rep Lowed harrowed and renown usually Good results Are obtained.

Not definitely experience indicates that desirable if the legume in question has not been grown for a period of from five to Sevo years. Hen a satisfactory View a legume has been obtained cent Date and the carry a Large number of nodules inoculation will not be necessary. There Are two common was of inoculation of soil one by direct application of soil from a Field that is at ready inoculated and the other by applying bacteria grown in the Laboratory. When inoculating with soil about 3 or 4 Hundred pounds an acre of finely powdered soil is applied from a Field known to be inoculated with the kind of bacteria desired. Another method is to coat the seed to be sown with soil from an inoculated Field. To insure the adherence of Earth to the seed the seed should be moistened with furniture glue that has been dissolved in boiling water. The glue method which is a modification of the soil Transfer method is sometimes used. The soil that is used in this method is dried in the dark to a Fine powder then sifted. Tiie seed is sprinkled with a ten percent solution of glue furniture glue 1 lb., to 1 Gal. Of water or with a solution made Sticky by dissolving sugar in water and stirring until All seeds Are moistened. Dry soil is then sifted Over the seeds in sufficient amounts to absorb All the moisture. The seed must be mixed thoroughly screened and planted within a Day. There Are a few questionable features concerning the glue method which makes it undesirable. The glue that is used May injure the bacteria and drying the soil is. Likely to reduce the vigor of the bacteria. Soon after the discovery that the nitrogen gathering Power of legumes depended upon the1 presence of bacteria in the nodules on the roots experiments were immediately begun with the pure cultural method of inoculation. Pure cultures of the various organisms were secured from the nodules and various liquids and solids were found to support the growth for the organisms. At first the commercial preparations seemed too weak due to the fact that the materials used to grow the bacteria contained nitrogen. To overcome these difficulties nitrogen free materials and on the roots of the particular legumes. This method of growing the bacteria seems to give greater vigor to the plants and from experiments it has been proven that the culture method and the soil method Are so nearly equal that the Choice Between the two should depend upon the Cost of the cultures compared with the ease of " rather than the crop proclaims november 25 As thanksgiving Day the evolution of cabbage Hill half a Century ago the busiest Corner of Postville was the one where stands the remodeler St. Paul s lutheran Church.
