Mr. Burton, of Langjey, begins wheat-dibbling a week before Michaelmas, and continues till three weeks after: early sown generally the best, and it saves half a bushel of seed. Mr. Margateson, of North Walsham, reckons the best time to begin is at Michaelmas; and to finish in two or three weeks; some are earlier, but they are apt to suffer. Mr. England, of Binham, as early as he can in October. Mr. Dursgate, of Summeriield, puts in no wheat on ollond after Michaelmas: all from that time on tempered land: seasons may prevent it, but he would wish to have all his ollond wheat in by that time. But on turnip land, it may be put in to Christmas. Mr. Mart1n, of Tottenhill, drilled wheat in February, and the crop good. Quantitv of seed.--About Watton, dibbled six or seven pecks. Mr. Rob1nson, if he sows before Michaelmas, two bushels; afterwards, two and a half. Mr. Salter, at Winborough, near Dereham, four T 4 bushels bushels broad-cast, dibbles ten pecks to three bushels.
