EASTERN REGION QUESTION BOX
Ralph Shugert and Bruce Briggs
The Question Box Session was convened at 4:20 p.m. with Ralph Shugert and Bruce Briggs serving as moderators.
MODERATOR SHUGERT: The first question is: does the Society have copies of the early publication, Propagator, prior to the bound Proceedings?
RALPH SHUGERT: I have a copy of the meeting held in Louisville, Kentucky in 1929. There are three other Proceedings that are in the Library of Congress. I will be glad to photocopy the copy that I have for the individual who asked the question.
RAY HESER: In the fall we plant winter rye, plow it in, then millet, buckwheat. or a similar crop for the summer, and then back to the winter rye. We use ammonium nitrate to help break down the organic matter.
RALPH SHUGERT: We have a 2 year program with sudan, rye, sudan and rye, for our low organic soils. We try to use an application of animal manure (turkey manure that is available to us) with every cover crop planting.
CLAYTON FULLER: The first step is a soil test to measure
