He downed quack grass in a year PDF (222.2 KB)
Release Week Beginning July 21 He Downed Quack Grass In a Year I KNOW a farmer in Polk county whom the neighbors By A. L. Stone laughed at and called foolish, for he had purchased 60 State Weed Commiaakmer acres of quack grass and actually believed he could make money farming that weed infested land. Although the dreaded weed had formed a thick mat, he set to work clearing his fields and, in spite of the doom predicted by "old timers" and the smiles and laughter of neighbors, in just one year he succeeded in carving a (lean, productive farm out of his quack wilderness. This is how he turned the tables on our most costly weed: Early in the spring he worked his land four or five times with a weed eradicator at few day intervals. He then planted corn and small grain. That fall he got the crops out quickly and cultivated again until late fall. Inside of a year his land has become completely free of quack. Your farm can also be freed of the pest. \W'Imen you think of your future savings in labor, the increased value of your land, your higher crop yields. and the better prices you will get, you too can profitably use his method of eradicating quack.
