WISCONSIN STATE HORTICULTURAL SOCIETY.
QUESTIONS AND ANSWERS.
SMALL FRUITS.
Question No. 1. Has anyone a failure with Dunlap straw-
berries?
Mr. Bingham: In Door county they are planting largely of the
Dunlap and Warfield, and while the Dunlap is a berry that we
pick with the Warfield, and it is a fair berry as far as yield is
concerned, it does not yield with the Warfield. I think -the Dun-
lap, though it is a good berry to work in with the Warfield, it is
not as good a yielder as a great many have claimed for it, not in
our locality.
Mr. G. J. Kellogg: I agree with Mr. Bingham on that score.
Question No. 2. What is the one Black and one Red raspberry?
Mr. Bingham: The Older and Kansas are perhaps as good
black raspberries as we have; the Older was perhaps a little bet-
ter yielder, a little hardier than the other.
Mr. M. S. Kellogg: It depends a great deal on the locality, or
local conditions, as to which is the better. In some localities you
cannot grow anything but the Older, in certain sections you can
grow certain varities. The Commonwealth does 'Letter with us
than the Older, it gives us more bushels and more dollars on the
same amount of land.
Question No. 3. Which is preferable, deep or shallow plowing
for strawberries?
A Member: I should like to answer that by asking, "Which
is the right road to heaven?"
1Ir. Knight: I can tell you-by the way of Bayfield Peninsula.
The President: That being conclusively answered, we will
take up the next one.
Question No. 4. Which is better, spring or fall plowing, for
strawberries?
Mr. M. S. Kellogg: It depends altogether on your soil. Some
soil is better plowed in the fall than in the spring.
The President: How shall we apply that?
Mr. M. S. Kellogg: Fall plowing for heavy soil.
Question No. 5. Can strawberries be cultivated too much?
Mr. G. J. Kellogg: No, unless you go too deep.
