In deciding what depth plough
l.ind it is important to know how deep
;he soil has been enriched, so as not to
go much below it. In ibs-ppuing it j
soil it is best to do it very gradually j
not more than one inch each year; j

of Indian corn will gmvv be'ter w ith
the same care and immure, if it is
ploughed only four or live inches

true of rye anil similar crop ; but if it
is desired to grow tram it, or horse
radish, or any deet-rootd cr 'ps, it is
t.nportnnt that thp land fmultl be
ploughed deeper, Hnd for mi-Ii crops it
also important that the land should
b? prepared by gradually deepening
the soil until it has been well enriehed
to tlio depth of eight or ten lnche;
when this it done deep ploughing may
bv resorted to with advantage; but to
