Permanent pasture land needs manure and usually superphosphate if the clover or grass is to be able to compete with weeds. In order to release barnyard manure for pasture, it will be necessary to plant more green manure crops on part of the tillable land. Treating the soil will enable grasses or clover to choke out most of the common annual weeds found in Iowa Farmers should not let the possibi- Itles for eradicating weeds with chemicals divert then- attention from gooo farming practices In the control of weeds, warns Mr. Porter. ....

Clean cultivation in the corn, early plowing after small grain and pasturing will aid greatly in keeping down the majority of Iowa's noxious weeds. Using clean seed and cutting weeds to prevent seed "production are essential stops both in good farming and in controlling weeds. A rotation system including one or two crops of corn, one of small grain and one or more crops of hay or pasture is recommended by Mr. Porter. Cultivation of the corn crop should include thorough preparation of the soil, blind plowing when necessary and frequent cultivation to kill all weeds so as to prevent thptr spread by seed.
