Under terms of the amendment interested parlies rent land free (o tei-nnts who will plant soybeans, the owner depending entirely on his profit on the increased yield of rice the following year. At least, every grower ctf soybeans must carefully consider the relative yield of the crops the following year, If he Is to have a correct picture of the value of soybeans on his farm. Soybeans will probably grow on a wider range of soil types than any other common fnnri crop; but like nil crops, it does best on locd.ground.

Tests are common where early prepared fields have yielded from eight to ifteen. bushels more per acre than icWs prepared just ahead o[ ilantlng, even though the planting latr-s of both fields were the same. The field should be plowed or JouMe disked, depending on the usual method and preceding crop, and at the time of plowing- vorked partially to retain mols- tlonc arbitrarily."
