A. Cary sowed an acre of turneps for every 10. sheep. he turned his we-
-thers on them as soon as the grass failed, and his ewes about
a month before they yeaned. he folded them on.
a pint of seed sows an acre of ground.
turneps do not exhaust land, if dug before Christmas. Taylor.
turneps sowed on the wheat stubble succeed well without hoeing, and folded
off with sheep are very advantageous. Parker


sowed the last of September & ploughed in in May, a fine green dressing. Report on manures. Ap. 17.
