RAISING MORE RYE
Washington, Nov. 3. The tendency
in the last few years toward the
spread of rye culture in the United
States has led the Department of
... . ni1MiBi,ri
and is being distributed to farmers
asking for it. The United States last
year produced its record crop of rye,
harvesting 49,000,000 bushels. Amer
ican production is only three per cent,
of the world's production. The De
partment experts point out that there
are many excellent reasons for grow-
!nfi rye on the farm even though in
most localities it is less proniauie as .
crop tnan wneat. .ye is
'hardier and can therefore be grown
as a winter grain m cold, exposed
places. It will do well on sandy, poor
o acid land and may be sown later
than wheat. It is attacked by fewer ,
irsects and diseases than wheat, pro-,
ducos a valuable straw, requareless.
fertilizer, and being earlier is better
rs n foraee crop. iu isuuic ecwwuf
production vaiue per
actually exceeds that of wheat. This
was true in the five-year period from
1910 to 1914 in South Carolina, Aia-
thama. Texas, Minnesota, Nortn ua-
kota and South Dakota.
