Why Did Canada Do It?
                           CANADA thistles are about our most expensive crop.
    By A. L. Stone        The weed lowers profits terrifically by increasing
the cost
    State Weed            of planting, cultivating, and harvesting, and by
cutting
    Commissioner          down yields and prices.
                              Our yearly waste from weeds, amounting to about
                           $40,000,000 in Wisconsin alone, can be greatly
reduced
                           and each farmer pay but a very small part of the
total
                           cost. At present each of us on the average needlessly
pays
                           an annual bill of approximately $200.00 for the
privilege
                           of growing weeds . . . Canada thistles costs us
a lot of
                           money. Eradicate it!
                              Here's a good way to rid your farm of the pest!
                              (1) Plant a grain crop.
                              (2) As soon as the grain crop is harvested,
cul-
                                   tivate the fild with a spring tooth harrow
or
                                   a weed digger at short intervals until
winter.
                               (3) Continue cultivating in the spring and
sow
                                   to alfalfa the first week in June without
a
                                   nurse crop. Then thistles will have com-
                                   pletely disappeared from your farm by
the
                                   next spring.
                              I wouldn't clear a large area the first year.
Start today
                           with a small plot and do the job well.
                                       Another article on weeds by Mr.
                                       Stone will appear in an early issue.
