FIELD EXPERIMENTS IN 1905.

CHAS. D. Woods and J. M. BARTLETT. The Station had about 40 acres in co-operative field experiments in 1905. The mid-summer was too dry in the northernmost part of the State for satisfactory experiments except with potatoes. The inoculation experiments for legumes were failures because of the poor quality of the cultures used. As Aroostook county was practically free from late potato blight, spraying and dusting experiments for this fungus did not give decisive results. The following experiments are here reported.

CLARK METHOD OF GROWING GRASS FOR Hay. Mr. Clark of Higganum, Conn., has for several years practiced intense cultivation for the production of hay with marked success. His method has been quite generally published in agricultural papers and this has led to the Station receiving many inquiries from correspondents as to the adaptability of this method to Maine conditions. Because of these inquiries the Station undertook to handle two acres of land as nearly as possible in accordance with Mr. Clark's published directions. A worn piece of grass land on rather heavy clay loam was selected for the purpose and plowed in the summer of 1903. This was harrowed about every fortnight with the Clark double action cutaway harrow. At the time the piece was plowed it was hoped that the frequent harrowing would break down the sod, and fine the soil so that a crop of winter rye could be grown. The turf proved too stubborn, however, and the ground was left
