Cty. Agent Brown Strong for Legumes "The Idea of the Agricultural Conservation program is to con serve and improve the farm land of the whole country by encouraglnf good farming methods on as man] indivdual farms as possible,' says County Agent A. L. Brown. "Orow- ing legumes is one of those methods." Legumes are the leading sot: building crops. They protect the soil from erosion; also, they increase the amount of organic matter in the soil, and the amount of nitrogen, which is gathered through the bacteria that live in nodules on the roots of legumes. Legume hay and pastures, he explains, rate high in protein and mineral salts, and in vitamins. Legumes, such as soybeans, hairy vetch and cowpeas are especially green manure crops. The growing of legumes, is am- mg the approved soil building prac- Ices of the Agricultural Conserva:Ion program. Farmers still have ime to plant some of the legume :rops this year and to participate o a greater extent in the program of soil improvement CLASSIFIED ADS For Sale S. C.
