— More land in grass and other hay
crops and less in row crops would be
' a profitable change on many farms.

faithful friends, and he should cer-

These changes occur quite frequent-
ly during the winter, so that by spring
the clods of earth are broken many
' times, and only a small amount of la-
bor is needed to dispose of what clods
er leave stubs in cutting off limbs. !
Late plowing is also beneficial in

sects that have burrowed in the soil
to pass the winter and deposit their
eggs for hatching a crop of pests for
next season are turned to the surface
by late plowing and destroyed by the
exposure of severe freezing. While it
may not kill all insect life it will so
reduce their force that they will be in-
capable of doing much harm.
Heavy clay soils are generally the
hardest to prepare for seeding, un-
less they are plowed in the fall. The
exposure to freezing and thawing
that the soil will get permits plowing
when somewhat wetter than would be
the case in spring. Winter freezes
counteract, to a considerable extent,
the tendency of the soil to puddle or
form clods and become hard.
There is not so much benefit deriv-
"ed from fall plowing a sandy soil, as
far as the tendency to form clods is
concerned, but it will do a lot of good
in the destruction of insect life.
