THE PEP4HNS JOURNAL County Agents SAVE MOISTURE FOR NEXT YEAR'S WHEAT CROP The 1968 wheat crop can be largely assured now by adequate mechanical land treatment. Any moisture that can be stored in the soil this summer will help in- crease next year's wheat yield. 'the average rainfall in Payne County is about 32 inches. Of this, about two-thirds is lost by evaporation and before lhe rain can soak into tile ground. To save moistnre, plo' the land immediately after harvest and keep it relatively free of weeds during sumnmr months. Don't let weeds waste water that bus seeped into the sub- soil. Kill weeds immediately af- ter germination so they will take water only i'ronl the first few inches of soil, Ample moislqre stored in the subsoil will help carry tile wheat during dry periods of the growing season. The amount of moisture in the soil at planting time will help determine the spring yield, In Payne County, land in wheat is fallow about four months dur- ing the year. Manage your land property dtu'izzg periods of nor- real rainfall so that adequate moisture can be stored in the subsoil. If stiff latent moisture is ava- ilable, plan',ed wheat will come up and grow rapidly. It will lroducc a good cover crop both for Dasttwc and prevenlion of wind erosion durilag ttle winter. a marked reduction in organic matter loss. The stubble mulchbd plots had more organic matter after 10 years than did the clean tilled plots. Studies on the Mability of the soil structure also showed that stubble mulched soils were less subject to damage by packing down, tillage or rainfall than clean tilled soils. The granular Stll'faCc StrLlclures Vv'aS Illorc re- sistam to damage lluader stubble mulching. Many years oz" research were needed to get much of this in- formalion. Oklahoma State Un- iversity has conducted research on stubble mulching tong en- ough to be,e, in to confirm results that could only be speculation previously. Because of research done on stubble mulching of wheat, a grower can assume that good re- sidue management on row crops will lead to similar benefits and improved soil conditions, BLOSSOM - END ROT. A TOMATO PROBLEM THAT StIOIVS UP THIS TIME OF YEAR x., ,.. RESEARCH PROVES VALUE OF STUBBLE MULCHING Stubble mulching saves water and reduces orgame matter loss. Recent research in Oldahoma proves tile advantage Ol stubble mulching over clean tillage. In a stud '} last year, stubble mulched soils contained consid- erably more water than elean tilled soils both at planting time last fall and in March, 1967.
