Release Week Beginning Juy 7 When Quack Wins You Lose! By A. L. Stone State Weed Commissioner I F quack grass wins, the good old farm is sure to lose. There's no fifty-fifty about quack grass. Quack costs Wisconsin farmers a tremendous sum and accounts for a large part of our annual $40,000,000 weed loss. Of all noxious seeds, quack is the most costly. It's to blame for hundreds of abandoned farms, heavy crop losses, and worthless land. Wipe it out, eradicate it now, before it piles higher and higher the cost of planting, cultivating, harvesting. Here's a good way to rid your farm of the dangerous weed pest. (1) Select a piece of quack infested ground as large as you can saily work and prepare it thoroughly for the crop. (2) Bow it to grain. (3) Get the grain off quickly and cultivate with a spring tooth harrow or a weed digger often enough to keep down all green shoots. (4) Early in the spring plow again. (5) Cultivate and sow to buckwheat, millet or Sudan grass. This last crop smothers any quack grass that may be alive and the weed will be completely eradicated. Kill the weed by this method and the farm income in- creases. You have a clean, easily worked farm the rest of your life. Another article on weeds by Mr. Stone will appear in an early issue.
