Whether Iowa farmers will have good seed corn for next spring's planting will depend upon whether they select their seed In the Held early, before a sharp freeze, and whether they dry It properly this fall and store It In the right kind of a place this winter. If any one or these factors Is neglected, the man who neglects them Is more than likely to be without good seed corn In 1913.
Although a general alarm.about seed corn has been sounded regularly every fall for some years, the vitality of the seed In the spring has become worse rather than better. This Is true, not because or the greater attention given to the selection and care of seed In the tall, but rather In spite of it.
