"If tlia Lord himself earns to speak at the chapal, : wonder how many students would ntteii.l " lie asked. pending entirely on his profit „.. Ihe increased yield of rice tiie following year. At least, every grower of soybeans must, carefully consider the relative yield of the crops the following year, if lie Is to have a correct picture of the value of soybeans on his farm. Soybeans will probably grow on wider range of soil types than any other common fnnn crop; but like all crops, it docs best on good ground. The field selected to grow soybeans should be typical of the average fertility oil the grower's farm. Early preparation r >f the seed bed is of more importance H>an the actual date of planting the soybeans. Tests are common where early prepared fields have yielded from eight to If teen bushels more per acre than lelds prepared just ahead of ilanting, even though the planting tale.? of both fields were the same. The field should be plowed or lou'jte disked, depending on Ihe usual method and preceding crop, and at the time of plowing] •corked partially (o retain jnois- ure. Since later operations depend •m a level seedbed, all operations 'rom the start should be planned •> f leycl-the field, especially if it 's cotton : ridecd when preparation tarts.
