Progress in Legume Inoculation

Progress in Legume Inoculation

Date: 1908
Creator: Kellerman, Karl F. (Karl Frederic), 1879-1934 & Robinson, Theodore R.
Description: "The peculiar value of legumes for maintaing and increasing the fertility of soils is due to certain bacteria which develop nodules upon the roots of leguminous plants and which have the unique power of rendering the free nitrogen of the atmosphere available for plant growth. Without these bacteria, legumes, like other crops, exhaust the soil of its combined nitrogen. In many regions certain types of these important bacteria are abundant in the soil; in other localities they must be imported, either by distributing soil from a field where they are known to be present or by using pure cultures of the proper organisms grown under artificial conditions. The old method of importing the bacteria by distributing soil from fields containing them is not only expensive but there is very great danger of spreading weeds and destructive crop diseases as well as the desirable bacteria. Under modern conditions, therefore, it is wisest to depend chiefly upon the intelligent manipulation of pure cultures for inoculating leguminous crops." -- p. 7. This bulletin is a broad overview of the circumstances which necessitate soil inoculation and methods of inoculation.

Grain Farming in the Corn Belt with Live Stock as a Side Line

Date: 1916
Creator: Vrooman, Carl Schurz, 1872-1966
Description: "This bulletin is written to suggest to the corn-belt farmer of the Middle West -- especially the farmer whose soil has been run down by continuous grain farming -- some ways of coordinating and 'cashing in' the scientific advice offered him in hundreds of bulletins already published.... Briefly, these are the conclusions reached by our most successful corn-belt farmer and agricultural experts: To make a money-maker of a farm that has become a losing proposition through steady grain farming you must in addition to raising standard grain crops -- (1) Grow legumes, (2) Raise live stock as a side line, (3) Keep accounts of receipts and expenditures, (4) Mix horse sense with scientific agriculture, (5) Try to secure enough capital to enable you to farm right, (6) Stick to whatever policy you adopt long enough to try it out, and (7) Confer with your County Agent and make a careful study of the bulletins of the United States Department of Agriculture." -- p. 1-3.
