Beans

Description: "The member of this great family with which we have at this time to deal -- the bean -- is not so valuable from the standpoint of forage or soil renovation, but is among the most valuable members of the great group for the seed which it produces. While the seed is the most important and valuable factor, the power to gather nitrogen and to render the soil better for having been grown upon it is an important consideration and one which should not be overlooked by those interested in maintaining the nitrogen content of the soil." -- p. 6. Topics discussed include the various types of beans and the differences in cultivation between field beans and garden beans.

Dodder in Relation to Farm Seeds

Description: "Dodder, on account of its parasitic nature, is the most dangerous weed in alfalfa and clover fields, and also often affects flax. On account of the large quantity of low-grade seed containing dodder imported from Europe and the prevalence of dodder in the alfalfa-growing regions of the West, its seed is becoming more and more common in commercial seeds. In this paper an attempt has been made to point out the dangerous character of the various kinds of dodder and to give practical suggestions for the eradication of dodder from infested areas." -- p. 2

Evaporation of Apples

Description: "While the recent tendency in the apple industry has apparently been to centralize fruit evaporation in distinct commercial establishments having considerable capacity and requiring capital to construct and equip, there sill remain large regions in which there is a considerable surplus of fruit that is unsuitable for packing and shipping in almost every crop year.... Encouragement of evaporating, canning, cider making, and other methods of utilization therefore appears desirable, and of these evaporating is the one that is most applicable at present to a wide range of conditions, and therefore of most importance to the average farmer." -- p. 2. Types of evaporators, methods of preparing and drying fruit, and the marketing and packing of apples are discussed.
