Wheat.

G. Divers supposes that every Cubic yard of a stack of wheat yields

generally 2. bushels of grain. a demi-cord then yields 4 3/4 bushels of

grain and 475 lb of straw & chaff, or perhaps, 1/4 of a ton.

Jo. Watkins says he knows from actual experiment that wheat loses 2. lb in the

bushel weight, from Oct. to January, which is 1. pr. cent pr. month.

he reckons the offal of a bushel of wheat worth 1/ see below.

2 1/2 bush. of seed wheat to the acre produces the maximum 1. Young. exp. agr. 271.

drilling in equidistant rows, those 1. foot apart produce the maximum. ib. 286.292.294.

in the way 2 bush. of seed per acre seems better than 2 1/2. ib. 298.

all September & the first fortnight of October, in England, for sowing, produces most. 310.

as to change of seed he establishes these points. 1. from the most opposite climates

are best. 2. wheats from opposite soils also, as do clay wheats on gravel soil, or gravel wheats

on clay soil. 3. wheat which has for some years been of the same neighborhood is

worse than any change that can be made. 1. Exp. agr. 321.

for 5 1/2 bushels of wheat a millar should give a barrel of fineflour, he keeping the offal for 6. bushels he should give a barrel of fine flour, he finding barrel nails, & returns the offal.

when wheat is @ 6/ per bush. then the offal is worth 1/ per bushel

to have a barrel of flour & the offal for 6/ instead of a barrel for 5 1/2 is

getting 6/ for the odd half bushel of wheat
