Soil Plan Being Used in Kentucky 3 Year Rotation of Corn, Wheat, Legumes. The Campbellsville soil experiment field which is maintained by the Kentucky experiment station offers an example of practical soil improvement and conservation. Work was begun on it in 1919. A three-year rotation of corn, wheat, and mixed legumes was used. To one piece of land has been applied four tons of limestone in 17 years since the work was started, and an average of 175 pounds of 16 per cent superphosphate per acre. This land has produced a yearly acre average of 57 bushels of corn. Beginning in 1926, manure was applied for corn at approximately one ton per acre for each ton of crops harvested in the rotation. The land that has received neither lime nor phosphate but has been ma- nured according to the plan just stated, has produced an average of 29 bushels of corn. If a fanner needs 1,000 bushels of corn, notes Prof. George Roberts, he could produce it on 18 acres under the first plan of treatment, whereas he would have to cultivate 35 acres under the second plan. Under the first plan he could have 17 acres more in good grass and legumes for soil improvement, which he couid pasture longer than poor pasture, and reduce the amount of grain he would have to feed. This treatment means that he could have plenty of good hay and would need less grain. HOLDEN FOLLOWS MOORE E. D. Holden, assistant secretary of the Wisconsin agricultural experiment station, has been elected to succeed R. A. Moore who was the founder of the organization and served continuously as its secretary for 35 years. Recent ill health has caused Professor Moore to retire from active I service.
