Sweet Clover

Description: "The widespread discussion as to the merits and demerits of this plant has resulted in many conflicting statements regarding its value. Although frequently regarded as a troublesome weed, sweet clover seldom encroaches upon cultivated land, while its value as a forage crop, as a soil renovator, and as a forerunner of alfalfa, in addition to its widespread utilization as a honey plant, makes it desirable to point out under what conditions its use is to be recommended and where its cultivation should be avoided, as well as to give instruction regarding the best methods of eradicating it when it is desired to utilize the ground in some other way." -- p. 3

Sweet Clover on Corn Belt Farms

Description: "Sweet clover is now grown successfully on many farms in the corn belt, both in rotation and as a catch crop to be plowed under. It has proved excellent for hay and pasture, and is unequaled by any other legume for soil improvement. Sweet clover may be used to good advantage for silage, and on some farms, with proper management, it is a profitable seed crop. Mixed with bluegrass, it makes a pasture of nearly double the carrying capacity of bluegrass alone. The object of this bulletin is to present details of management and of the more important farm practices followed on some of the successful corn-belt farms on which sweet clover is grown as one of the principal crops of the rotation. Cropping systems are outlined for farms of different types, and special attention is called to the three essentials of success in growing the crop -- lime, inoculation, and scarified seed." -- p. 2

Numerical Tests of the Improved Fermilab Action

Description: Recently, the Fermilab heavy-quark action was extended to include dimension-six and -seven operators in order to reduce the discretization errors. In this talk, we present results of the first numerical simulations with this action (the OK action), where we study the masses of the quarkonium and heavy-light systems. We calculate combinations of masses designed to test improvement and compare results obtained with the OK action to their counterparts obtained with the clover action. Our preliminary results show a clear improvement.
