Jessen Soll Conservation Service Summer iaBow i a very cosy practice far e annual crop,lag .area of the dict, which is 1,ocated in the 18 or more inches prcpitian zone and is capable of sing a crop of grain, peas, hay, .green maure, grass, etc. Evidence of erosion, due to summe fallow, can already be noticed o the hi,llides. Many fa, rmers are summer falloving when there is, no need ,to conserve he moisture for ersuing craps. T,heyy caim the reason is for weed co,n,trol. There are much cheaper ways of fighting weds. The soil is worked up fine to stop the weeds tough the summer, arid left hare going into the winer wi*th l,ttle or no protection during the SlYrlrg Not oly does the erosion ,take out the crop from the hi'lside, bu*t asv cov- ers up the crop in the draws. Result Is Erosion Working the gv0,nd fine also 1,eves .the soil open to wid croton; when the wind blows at tlat time of year that is dry and dusty. The high cost comes from the losses of soft, crop, tLme :a,rd experrses of repairing the gullies, ,rlls arid slis flwough that field, and reseeding oper- .ati, ons. The s04l 1;oss,es are tre- mendel,s .and have a very long lasting effect. Top soft can- not be replaced overnight, and the chy subsoils that ,have been exposed in a few mo- me:nts, will not yield the heav- rer crops experiermed before the erosion took place. The i,mpovtnt thing is to have some crop r the resi- dues o or near the surface of the soil ,at that time of the year when crimea1 eron oc- curs. In the past, quite a few farmers from that region had a .good green mamtre rotion Irt buIt up the soft. But, be- cause of the clver weevil and the weed .sprays used, a good sha:rtd of eover is ha x) main- rain, so the practice was dis- contin, ued. The Carom program 1-as 'had some inuexee, also. Cost Cited The weevils can be co.oll-I ed by the use of dust on the crop, and the 2, 4-D spays .slmd be used with a tt'le extra ,care. The dustg is a .lrtfle more epen've, bt wi'll insure .againxt the weevils. Al- falfa ucl in phee of the sweetclver, will do the job without the weevil Vrol/lem. AlSaa seed costs a ,lte. more, but considering the dust, it m,ay not cost very much more. .A good conseraon crop- plng system With a better weed eontr will :have less soil l+osses throu, gh erosion, and will resnit in added yields and mare income .to 'the farm- or.
