Description:
Title continues: Clover was turned under in August and manure applied, also 5 tons lime to 1 1/2 acres. Land was both plowed and subsoiled 16 inches deep. Used 2 horse, plow, and bull tongue with 40# of iron. Then harowed every three days until time to plant alfalfa. This killed all weeds. Fertilized with 800# complete fertilizer per acre at planting. Has applied 400# 16% superphosphate per acre twice since alfalfa is unusually free of weeds. Has been cut 12 times, and has made a total growth of 21 feet. J. G. Fulk, Dobson, North Carolina R. 1. March 31, 1938.
