Summer crops for green manure and soil improvement. Roland McKee, Bureau
of Plant Industry. 17 p., illus. (F. B. 1750F.) Price, 54.
This bulletin discusses the importance of legumes or other crops in rotations for
soil improvement. Such practice is recognized as a means of maintaining soil fer-
tility and insuring increased crop yields.
The Technical Bulletins contain the results of scientific and research work npply'ng to
a special crop, industry, or locality. The editions are Limited as they are intended pri-
marily for scientific workers and subject matter specialists.

L. M. White, and W. H. Ross, Bureau of Chemistry and Soils, and J. E.
Adams, Bureau of Plant Industry. 27 p. illus. (T. B. 4S5T.) Price, 54.
The purpose of this bulletin is to give the results of experiments upon the prop-
erties of various fertilizers, their behavior during storage, their handling and appli-
cation to the so l, their mon merts aud reactions in the Coil solution, and their
efficiency in getting good stands and high crop yields, and then to show so far as
possible their intcr.elationships and significance to agriculture.
Reducing decay in citrus fruits with borax. J. R. Winston, Bureau of Plant
Industry. 32 p., illu,. (T. B. 4SST.) Price, 50.
Although the production of citrus fruits is confined to relatively small areas in

trade as well. ThI losses from decay developing betw en the time the fruit is har-
vested and consumed are often serious and greatly complicate the marketing program.
Alfalfa experiments at Stoneville, Miss. Paul R. Henson and H. L. Westover,
Bureau of Plant Industry, in cooperation with the Mississippi State Col-
lege and Agricultural Experiment Station. 14 p., illus. (T. B. 495T.)
The results of these experiments indicate that while some of the failures can b"
attributed to the use of seed of unadapted varieties, failure to cut at the proper
stage of growl h, to poor preparation of the seed bed, and to insect and distase
injury, the most important factor in the successful production of alfalfa is adequate

stalks on yields of sugar per ton of cane and per acre are summarized in this
A practical laboratory method of making thin cross sections of fibers. J. I. Hardy.
