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.
