Sub-Soil Moisture

Conditions Best In

Many Years–

Results of sub-soil moisture measurements taken by H.H. “Hub” Ames, Scobey mill owner show that summer fallow practices exert a generally favorable influence on the depth of moisture penetration to the extent of almost twice that of continuous crop land.

During the past two weeks Ames has been out with his ground augur taking measurements. Summer fallow land averages a subsoil moisture past 50 inches in depth, while on continuous crop land the depth is from 26 to 36 inches. Similar measurements taken last year for the same period showed 36 inches on summer fallow and from 14 to 20 inches on continuous crop land.
