Here is George's own story of how he produced his exceptionally high corn yield: "First, I disced and then 1 plowed it, then disced it again. Then I used a Jandlcvelcr and disced it twice. Then I planted my corn on May 29th. Before planting, I plowed down 150 lbs. of Nitrogen, 100 lbs. of phosphate, and 100 lbs. of potash. When I planted it I put on 4-1616 N.P.K. at the rate of 200 lbs. to the acre. I cultivated it twice. The previous crop grown on this ground was red clover. The rate of planting was approximately 16,500 population per acre. "There are 231 acres in our farm, which consists of Angus cat tie and hogs. Major crops! are corn and soybeans, and red clover for seed crops. The soil type on our Irani is Ava Silt, loam. I am a sophomore at Me­ Leansboro township high school I and I expect, to be a livestock I farmer or stay in some field of agriculture. My lather, George Logan, Sr., helped me get the ground ready and get the crop in, and helped me harvest the plot."
