While It 1s conceded Ntbst Oklahoma
leads In the quantity produced, tbe
deplorable fact remains that the man-
ufacturers are forced to ' rely upon
central Illinois and Kansas for quality
The average farmer-influenced per
haps by the price his neighbor re-
ceived for his brush—decides to plant
some broomcorn. Without giving the
matter further consideration, he goes
to the nearest baler and procures sev-
eral sacks of trash snd infertile seed
that was thrashed from his neighbor's
lest year's crop. This done, he pro-
ceeds to set apart a few acres of isnd
perhaps a last year's corn field yet
covered with stalks—snd, sfter plow-
ing it once, plants it to broom corn
(?) snd awaits results. Under the
moet favorable conditions more than
half a stand could not be expected,
and If the soil should be too cold the
smell percentage of fertile seed ob-
tained In tbe "trash" planted would
not germinate; the results being dis-
couraging and should be.
Some Timely Suggestions.
Hsvlng decided on the typo beet
adapted to your soil, the next step
should be to procure seed of the var-
iety wanted—and right here I wish to
ssy that too much stress csnnot be
Isid on the Importsnce of planting
PURE seed, as this Is the prime re-
quisite. You would not expect to
, raise thoroughbred Poland China
; from a pair of brqken-down "Ten-
j nessee ridge-rooters," would you?
' Well, It Is ss well within tbe reslms
of posslbiiitiee to do this ss It Is to
produce a good quellty of brush from
Tbe preparation of tti soil and the
j tin e for plsntlng should now claim
your sttention. Next In Importance
to good seed is getting the soli' In
| proper condition to receive them.
Neede Frequent Cultivstion.
The first step In thl4 direction
should be to clear tbe field of all
stalks, sticks and other obstructloaa,
ss these will greatly Interfere with
cultivation if not removed.
Before breaking tbe field should be
disked both ways. This, when turned
under, forms a loose bed which con-
serves moisture and favors tbe rapid
root growth of the young plants,
which Is very essential. Whan the
plants are Just coming up It la con-
sided advisable to barrow tbo field
lengthwise the rows to prevent weeds
getting a start. Cultivation at fre-
quent Intervals Is nsccsssry until tha
plants have attained a height of
twelve or fourteen Inches, at whlcS
time they will grow rapidly and
thrive with the aame cultivation as
does Indian cora. Level culture
(that Is, no banking the soil to the
plants) seems to be most satisfactory,
and Is therefore reaommended.
Olve Immediate Attention.
Another fact that should ever
borne In mind la that broomcorn that
has stood In tbo field until the
mstured does not bring too top msr-
ket price. It followe that broomcorn
raised for seed should ha entirely
separate because you canaot raise
both seed aad brush on tha name
days mar causa damage that wdtid
decreaae tha value SO per cost. Anoth-
er common cause of loea to the raiser
of broomcorn la brought about
through licking the brush In the field.
To do this Is In the humble opinion
of ihe writer, to Invite serious results,
as broomcorn thus handled le almost
sure to beat especially so If there bo
any moisture. The heat thus generat-
es destroys flexibility of the fiber,
rendering It brittle and discoloring it
to such so extent that no amount of
"treating" will restore Its natural
color. Ths manufacturer can use
this brush only In the very cheapest
grade , of brooms, therefore it does
not command a good price.
Wsrm, dry weather should prevsil
at harvest time (snd In this locality
usually does) otherwise extreme csu-
tlon must be used. Conditions being
favorable brush msy be gathered,
placed In small, piles and left In the
field twenty-four to forty-eight hours,
at which time It ehould be taken
directly to tbe seeder and eeeded
WELL. It should then be placed In
the curing shed on the shelves pro-
vided for that purpoee, and when
thoroughly cured should bs wfll and
Care In Baling,
Great care should be exercised In
baling, however, as corn baled while
green will beat and reduce the value of
the brush to practically nothing.
The curing abed may be construct-
sd st a small cost; In fact, the ehed
used for tbis^purpose msy be used for
storing IndUm corn later on, ss broom-
corn Is out of the way before the
latter crop is harvested.' Perbape a
very small outlay of cash would con-
vert an old stable or barn Into a suit-
able curing abed, and In thle manner
mnke the old Idle building pay fbr tbe
spacs It occuplee.
CAN AFFORD TO PAV TOP PRICES
(By C. C. Carson of Central Broom
Co* Jefferson City, Mo.).
Regsrdless of sll other conditions,
pure broomcorn seed is the most Im-
portant. and too much attention can-
not be given to broomcorn growing.
There ie not a broom manufacturer
who is not.attracted by and will pay
tbe top price for broomcorn that has
smooth fiber, fair length, gree?
color, well seeded, and nicely baled.
Two croae wires fsstsned to the top
snd bottom wires on each bale Is a
matter of Insurance' that the bales
will remain In good condition, and ws
csn afford to pay the top price for
such corn, because there s no wssts
snd no expense for rebsling. Ths
fsrtnsr who hss such broomcorn will
slways get s lot mora thsn ths top of
During tbe lsst few yesrs, general-
ly apeaklng, the quality of broomcorn
haa been poor, and It Is absolutely
neceessry for the farmere In the coun-
try to take some measuree to Inaure
a better quality and better hsndilsg
of this crop. It will psy them ea It
is evidenced by tbe high price that le
secured by tbe grower who uses pure
seed, hsndles his corn properly, has
it well seeded and baled.
During tbe 1910 crop when prices
were lower there was never a time
when good broomcorn did not bring
a good price; as manufacturers are
only too glad to avail tbemselvee of
the opportunity of securing brush of
