DETAILS OF AN EXPERIMENT ON RAISING POTATOES IN THE YEAR 1852—Continued.

[blocks in formation]
[graphic]
[ocr errors]

The ground upon which the foregoing experiment was tried was greensward ploughed early in the spring, nine inches deep; soil gravelly loam, except as otherwise stated. Planted 18th of May, except as otherwise stated. Hoed twice—first, 18th of June; second, about two weeks after. The cultivation was intended to be as nearly alike as possible. Taken from the ground as soon as the vines were dead, which was not till killed by frost. All the rows, except as otherwise stated, consisted of thirty hills each, three feet apart each way. All the potatoes were free from the rot. The kind of potato planted was the red variety, which here goes by the name of "Irish Lunkers." - Journal of the New York State

Agricultural Society.
