JACKSONVILU, FLA. Circular 74 of the Alabama Experiment Stati*
oites Ata which are typical of results obtained in the, IaDa. ,eperime -
ducted ~n the Sothheast to prove the value of witeralegas for inrew g
crop yields. In summarizing the resu4ls .of these experasinte this acicplae
states "(1) there cotton and corn wore Sr on n respective areas each year,
vetoh. or Austrian winter peas (turned under) increased the yield of seed cot-
ton by 628 pounds and of corn by 15.6 bushels per aore. (2) The increase in
cotton yield due to the vetch or Austrian winter peas was worth $3.78 per aore
mope than the increase from 225 pounds of nitrate of soda or its equivalent
after considering the cost of the legume seed and the cost of the soda. (3)
here corn was grown without rotation and wao preceded by vetoh or Austrian
peas, the cost of the increased yield was 16 cents per bushel. (4) Vetch .o
.Austrian peas grown in a two year rotation (oottonwrinter legume-oorn) in- '
creased the corn yield 18 bushels per acre at a cost of 14 dents per bushea,
and the residue the second year from these legumes increased the cotton yield
by 213 pounds of seed cotton per acre. (5) Essentials for suooess are (a)
Early pla king September or first half of October (b) planting lose to old
cotton or oorn. stalks (o) Proper inoculation (d) .se 300-400 pounds eupeqneA-
phate or 600 pounds of basic slag (e) Turning under in spring whan green tops
harvested from 100 squarM feet weigh to 20 pounds and '(f) waiting at least
two weeks before planting the succeeding crop."
