The Knobfield was sown the last fall with wheat on the North side of the road, and rye on the South side. before harvest I laid off an acre on each side of the road where the ground appeared nearly equal. that of the wheat however was somewhat the best, but the wheat & the rye having been sown at the same time, which was very late for the wheat & in good time for the rye, this circumstance was thought to make up for the difference in the quality of the ground. The wheat & rye being stacked separately, each stack measured exactly 4.8 cubic yards; & the wheat yielded 3. bushels 3. pecks, & the rye 3 1/2 bushels of clean grain.
|the bulk of wheat in the stack then was to the bulk of grain
|that of rye
