6117. Schafer, E.G., L.C. Wheeting and S.C. Vandecaveye. 1937. Crop rotations.. WA Agr. Expt. Sta. Bull. #344.
Evaluations of crop rotations conducted on plots at Pullman college farm, 1916-34. Bulletin is in two parts, Part I: effect of crop rotation on succeeding crops; Part II: effect of crop rotations on productivity of the soil. The highest average yield was the wheat/summer fallow rotation. Much variation was found in the N/C content of soil in the different plots under the same system of management. This bulletin contains an extensive amount of data. T: yield of winter wheat/summer fallow. Yield of winter wheat/peas. Yield of winter wheat/corn. Yield of spring wheat/peas. Yield of winter wheat/spring wheat/summer fallow. Yield of winter wheat/spring wheat/corn. Yield of winter wheat/spring wheat/sunflowers. Yield of winter wheat/spring wheat/potatoes. Yield of winter wheat/oats/corn. Yield of winter wheat/ sweetclover/peas.

OM was increased most by addition of manure and least by 40 lb/ac application of straw. Suggestions for OM maintenance are: a) addition of straw and manure increases C-N of soil without depressing yield; b) addition of ammonium sulfate both with and without straw increases C, N in the spring, N in grain and straw, and yield of straw, without depressing yield; c) addition of either straw and manure or straw and N are equally efficient in increasing C and N in soil. T: many. eg.: grain yields from the Organic Matter Maintenance Series of plots, 1923-1940. Acre inches of available moisture in the soil at the Organic Matter Maintenance Series. Pounds of nitrates per acre at the Organic Matter Maint. Series plots.
