Of cotise, any one knows that good land, makes better lespedeza than poor' land, but if anything will make any growth le«pedezft can jbe counted on. ,'4.' Some of the .newer varieties of lespedeza will carry I'.OOO pounds of live weight of ' stock per a&re from June to October. ' ' S. Korean of Kobe lespedeza is large enough to. graze fr6ni two to three weeks earlier, than ordinary wild lespedeza. : 6. The newer varieties mature earlier and thus insure reseedlng and permitting a fall harvest before fall rains •begin. ..... S ••-•-' ..... 7. Lespedeza is easier to cure and handle for: hay than any; of -the legumes which we ore- familiar. 8. Lespedeza has.: rich feeding analysis for either. pasture. or hay. r 9. .Lespedeza reseeds itself,- thus requiring no expense for seed for the ; second ; year's Wdp. 1 •T 10. :L«spedeza , can bo broadcast 5 to; 10 pounds of seed per adre on old jthHa'spotted'paslures'of any 'kind and some fair Vesults expected.' Good S«d Importknt ';• It : should be- added that in growing' lespedeza as ; 'i . nany other crop, godd ieed Is highly 'imp'ortant. In selecting a variety of seed to plant the question is often asked— which is better Korean or Kobe ",The only answer We can give to> this question at this time. is that wo know Korean will grow well In this particular section. It; is doing it. • ' ;- ' ; 1V ..... ,:Kobe may be a better varcty for IB but since.'; K" has', hot been thoroubhly tested, and . since -the seisd are higher, It Is probably best to grow the Korean. As to the matter of expense of seeding It does' not cost more: tW" acre to 'sow sufficient amount of Korean lespedeza seed to get, a stand than it does to sow the ordinary kind of lespedeza seed to get a stand. The matter of cost of seed, therefore, has nothing' to do with determining whether we -sow ordinary lespedeza seed or Improved Korean. White ordinary lespedeza seed is selling for about J2 per pushel, Korean seed is selling for J? to 15 cents a pound. There is very little difference in seeding cost per acre, .
