AGRICULTURAL REPORT FOR FEBRUARY, 1798.
falls of snow during this month, the operations of the husbandman have not been much retarded. In general, farmers have been bufily employed in turning over their winter fallows, or in preparing their lands for barley and oats.
Fron Wates too we find, that the late changes in the weather have, in many respects, been favourable; speaking of those di:tricts in the vicinity of the river Wye, our reporter observes, that the heavy rains, the torrents from the mountains, and the frequent and uncommon overflowings of the Wye, during the winter, have spread a cheap manure over the meadows, which has been meilowed by the warm weather that succeed; and as the practice of fooding is universally attended to in this country, there is perhaps scarcely a bit of pasture, all around, cipecially in che vallies, that is not considerably enriched. The wheat crops, of which alone any conjectures can yet be formed, looked, before the frost, very fine and promising; and the contiderable fall of fnow, by which the frost was ushered in, will probably contribute' rather to their benefit than injury. In other parts of the kingdom, we alto find, that the wheat crops, especially on dry loams, in general, appear well: but that on strong wet clayey foils they are not to promising.
TURNIPS.. These roots have continued to stand the winter extremely well. In most of the diftricts north of the Tay, this crop feens to have failed.
Grain. The markets keep still rather on the decline. Wheat, on the 17th inftant, averaged throughout England and Wales, 49s. 6d. Barley, 265. 11d. and Cats, 16s.gd. per quarter.
