Dear Sir,— ln reply to yonrs, re lime, I have only used a little, but the result has been good. I limed 6 sores last year for barley, that I sowed before without lime. I had to feed off with sheep. What I limed was a good orop, and I oonslder paid for the lime, and the grass is so mnoh better, you oan see to an Inch where I put It. One of my neighbours had 50 bushels where he limed, and what was not limed was hardly worth catting. Two or three tons I think Is sufficient, bat some pnt more. Any Information you may require I shall be pleased to give.— l remain, De&t Sir, Yours Truly, Gorans^ Fobtbe;
Mount Somers, Maroh 12th, 1889. E. F. Wright, Eeq.,
Dear Sir,— ln repiy to your enquiries rt lime, on a piece of land m oats this season, I spread 25 cwt to the acre. The difference was very marked. I estimate the increase at 10 bushels per aore, and expeot a substantial increase on portion limed for several years. 1 also limed a strip m a paddock sown with turnips, with about the same quantity of lime per aore, and the difference is even more marked than m the piece sown with oats' —Yours Faithfully, John Hoed Mount Somers, April 29th, 1889. To E. F. Weight, Eaq
Sib;— The land which I planted with potatoes the Beasoa before last, and from which I did not dig as many potatoes as I put into it, was thiß season planted again with potatoes, after liming it m the spring, and ihd result was that I got at the rate of four tons to the aore of large and firm potatoes, which; when cooked, are like balls of flour, while at the same time the lime has killed all the sorrel.-* John Mubbay.
Springburn, May Ist, 1889. To E. F. Weight, Esq, Sir,— ln reply to yours of the 28th I have used your lime on loft land and land for turnips snd the result Is so satisfactory m both oases I will use your lime largely this year. Yours Truly, A. M. MoFablakb.
