I Suggest Way to Cut Cost of Seed For New Pastures With red clover at the* highest price in 18 years, farmers can save 20 per cent on their seed bil nnd still get a good hay crop bj leaning more heavily toward alsike and timothy in their seed mixtures So says County Agent, A. L Brown, who has just received sug gestions on the red clover problem from H. D. Hughes, head of farn crops nt Iowa State College. A good mixture is 3 pounds of rer clover. 2 of alsike and 6 of timothy Ordinarily as much as 6 to 8 pounds of red clover nnd corresponding!} less timothy is used. Alsike clover is not only cheaper than red clover now, but one pound of alsike goes as far ns two pound.' of the other. The actual cost pei acre now is less than half ns much as for red clover. Timothy, of course, is very cheap this year. Alsike clover has all the adaptab ility of red clover nnd considerably more tolerance. It is equal to red clover hay in quality. But it does not yield ns heavily nnd is not as good a green manure crop. For these reasons red clover should not be entirely eliminated, regardless of its high price.
