                               After alfalfa is established it survives severe
                            yields heavily, helps build up your land, and
supplies you
                            with a rich feed carrying lots of costly protein.
                            of farms throughout the state have been turned
into fer-
                            tile, productive fields with the aid of this
crop. Here's the
                            way Wisconsin farmers get a good stand:
                                1. Lime the land.
                                2. Use phosphorus.
                                3. Apply potash.
                                4. Inoculate the seed.
                                5. In the early spring sow about 18 pounds
                                  the acre with a light seeding of barley
or oats
                                  (it can also be successfully sown with
                                  canning peas.)
                               Some soils grow alfalfa without any treatment
at all,
                            other soils only need a little lime, and still
others require
                            plenty of lime, phosphorus, and potash. The easiest
                            simplest way to find out precisely what your
land needs
                            for a profitable crop of this splendid high protein
feed, is
