Land that is going to be summer fallowed needs terrace protec- tion. ACP funds are available at the present time. Waterways could also be built now. Waterways that are shaped now could be planted to a sorghum cover crop for erosion protection. A mulch of old hay or manure is better than the cover crop. It will pay to wait until August to plant waterways. Many waterways show a need for nitrogen fertilizer. Waterways will produce a lot of hay if fertilized. Brome grass, especially if it were fertilized is about ready to be cut for hay. It makes the best hay just when it headsl out. Brome that was fertilized early is making excellent pas- ture. Farmers are having good results with fertilizing brome in July and August. When we compare brome pasture with silage or hay costs it will pay to fertilize brome. The blue- stem grasses haven' made much growth yet. The summer grasses will grow rapidly how- ever as soon as it warms up. Brome grass should not be grazed past June 15 in most instances. However if it hasn't been grazed much up until now later grazing won't hurt. It does need a rest during the hot summer months. It needs some growth on it when going into the hot weather. We seem to always get some hard rains in June. Now is an excellent time to terrace sum- mer fallow ground.
