Urges Oat Clipping To Collect Payments Immediate clipping of oats seeded as a nurse crop with legumes is urged by A. L. Brown, county agent, if the farmer expects to collect soil conserving payments on the legume acreage. The regulations of the AAA specify that oats or other small grains seeded as a nurse crop must be pastured or clipped green and left on the ground. The grain must not be allowed to mature or develop heads if payments for soil conservation arc to be collected. Immediate clipping will, in many cases, avoid the danger of having too rank n growth of the nurse rop. Where the growth is so heavy hat there is danger of smothering i the legume. Mr. Brown suggests , clipping as high as possible and re- | peating the process later if necessary. If the farmer has sufficient ivestock, the nurse crop can be pastured heavily' for a few days and clipped. Where oats have been pastured closely and no grain will mature, the farmer may continue to pasture instead of clipping.
