Description

Not illustrated. 1865 edition. Excerpt: ...IN GRASS. These tabular results are given in a separate form instead of being combined in one result, from the conviction that they will give a more satisfactory impression in regard to the experiment. In the experiments of 1863, in top-dressing grass-lands with muck and salt, muck alone gave a gain of 24 per cent., muck and salt gave a gain of 22 per cent., and salt alone 17 per cent. These experiments have been undertaken for the purpose of calling the attention of farmers to the great value of the beds of muck which lie too often neglected and useless--a prolific source of discomfort and disease, instead of what they should be, wealth and abundance. The experiments were purposely very simple in their character, in hopes that others would repeat them and give to the public the results. "Agricultural successes which are the result of simple, lavish expenditure, without reference to agricultural returns, are but empty triumphs; no success in any method of culture is thoroughly sound and praiseworthy, except it be imitable, to the extent of his means, by the smallest farmer." All of which is respectfully submitted. B. C. KEDZIE, Chairman of Committee. Stath Ageicultueal College, ) Lansing, Aug. 22, 1864. J TREASURER'S REPORT.
