Rye Production, With Special Reference to Saskatchewan
MetadataShow full item record
To control weeds we have no other crop nearly as effective as is rye. As a frost-proof cereal rye has no equal. The general interest taken in rye by prairie authorities of high repute, on the grounds already advanced, can have only one lesson to teach, viz:- "That the production of Rye under prairie conditions is possible, advisable, and profitable." The increasing interest, and the satisfactory results obtained, far exceed any disadvantages which may attend it, and a sane introduction of rye on many farms may provide to be the best thing possible for the finnancial and agricultural salvation of the prairie farmer.
