What is this?
Optical character recognition (OCR) is an automated process that converts a digital image containing numbers and letters into computer-readable numbers and letters. The search engine used on this web site searches OCR-generated text for the word or phrase you are looking for. Please note that OCR is not 100 percent accurate. If the original image is blurry, has extraneous marks, or contains ornate font styles or very small text, the OCR process will produce nonsense characters, extraneous spaces, and other errors, such as those you may see on this page. In addition, the OCR process cannot interpret images and may ignore them or render them as strings of nonsense characters. Despite these drawbacks, OCR remains a powerful tool for making newspaper pages accessible by searching.

Having tit:tidied this particular question for some tim in the principal virtheat-growing ,areas te:' the; State, I find :Wait there is a teertain, period every year when win- ter wheat may be sown to the besd alvantages; viz: from about the 15th of Angus j t to the 10th of ;September. Pra.ctleailly every record breaking crop ever produced in Montana was iszeidad during this period.. It is true 'that ;sometimes a goeid crop with, s th-Javy yield may he produced when the winter ;wheat is sown either be- _ irol!a or after these dates, yet the tbeat crops are nearly always sown stok Septemixr When_one.

Too early seeding is not desirable as it appears that it increases the liability to injury by wirerworms or blight. Why this shoukl be co has not- been natiefactorily explained by the plant pathologists of our western states. 1The fact remains that early -sown *wheat is frequently thus affected 'While ;late -sown wheat in the- same (field may escape injury. In a certain edi_atriet et Puglia county a number of e&rmens had learned that it would do to seed flax in the spring and then immediately seed winter wheat . in the tame field, and then when the flax 'was harveisted in the fall the winter evileat would be in spllendid 'shape for 'the winter. In every instance the wheat was tine in the fall and winter, tarnishing in many cases good eas- tern for live stock.
