. An area of two and one-half acres
on a 20 per, cent slope, set aside for
permanent hay crops, produced 8
tons of hay this past summer, it was
reported by James M. Parks, of the
Soil Conservation , Service.
? Since Wagner has increased his
livestock from 2 to 9 head, he is
'increasing his hay and pasture acre
age still more, fie also produces
pigs for market and cultivates a fi
acre field of tobacco annually.
Most of the crops are to be grown
on the bottomlands in a definite 3
year rotation. Corn to be grown on
the uplands will be alternated with
close-growing crops in strips.
Barley is grown as a substitute
for corn and Wagner has 18 acres
in lespedeza annually. Wagner
also grows Austrian winter peas,
vetch, crimson clover, and rye for
erosion control and to increase the
fertility of his soil.
There is a complete erosion control
program on the Wagner farm, said
Parks, and it is paying big dividends
with no greater amount of labor
made necessary on the part of the

1937 Farm Program To
Stress Soil - Building
Soil-building will foe given great
er emphasis in the 1937 conservation
program, according to Dean I. 0.
Schaub, of State College.
Farmers will be encouraged to
grow fewer money crops and more
crops for sou-conservation and for
providing food and feed for home
consumption, he pointed out.
Larger soil-conserving crop bases
will be established, he added, and
there will be stricter regulations re
garding the minimum acreage of
conserving crops required.
The minimum payment any farm
will be allowed to earn has been in
creased from $10 to $20, and it may
be earned by carrying out soil-build
ing practices or reducing cash crop
acreage or both.
