In this rotation, the planting of vetch on gumbo soil will be practical. As Hays Sullivan, manager of Burdette Plantation, says, "It's a proposition to get a crop of cotton behind vetch." This is especially true on the heavy gumbo soil which comprises two- thirds of the area of the county. Vetch often grows off so stow in the spring as to make it inadvisable to wait until adequate and, worthwhile growth Is made before c °n'ent. A well inoculated for seed results in been made in Ohio and Missouri to i determine the effect of various I crops upon the organic matter (ni-i trogen) content of the soil.
