Mount Somere. Canterbury r Dear Sir,— ln reply to yours, re lime, I have only used a little, but the result has been good. I limed 6 acres last year for barley, that I sowed before without lime. I had to feed off with sheep. What I limed was a good crop, and I consider paid for the lime, and the grata Is so much better, you can ace to an inch where I put it. One of my neighbonm had 60 bnshela where he limed, and what was not limed was hardly worth outting. Two or three tons I think is sufficient, bat some put more. Any Information you may require I shall be pleased to give.— l remain, Dear Sir, Yours Truly, GODIBBY FOSTUU

I estU mate the increase at 10 bushels per acre, and expect a substantial increase on portion limed for Beveraryears. 1 also limed a stiip m a paddock sown with turnips, with about the same quantity of lime per acre, and the difference is even more marked thao m the piece sown with eata*, —Yon re Faithfully, Johx Hood
Mount SomerajHH April 29th, 1889; * To E. F. Weight, Ebo 6ia,— The land which I planted with potatoes the season before last, and from which I did not dig as many potatoes aa I put into it, was this season planted again with potatoes, after liming it m the spring, and the result was that I got at the rate of four tons to the acre of large and firm potatoes, whiob; when cooked, are like balls of flour, while at the same tine the lime has killed all the sorrel.— John Mubbay.
