It is important tbat farmers should understand how to properly trim sugar beets, for if too much of the crown is left on, carrying with it its large percentage of impurities, the value of the beet for the mauufactnrer is much duced. The farmer gains nothing by seuding to the faotory irnproperly trinjmed beets or those loaded with dirt, as the state weigber samples each load, washes and if necessary trirus the sample and determines the percentage of dockage. The farmer not only gets nothing for the crown at the factory, but losas its valué on the farm as stock food and fertilizer, says a bulletin of the Gornell university station, from which the illustration of trimmed beets is reproduced. The beets in the upper row are properly trimmed, those in the lower ow iraproperly.
