CHAP. 39. (16.)—SILICIA.

Silicia,1 or, in other words, fenugreek, is sown after alight ploughing2 merely, the furrows being no more than some four fingers in depth; the less the pains that are bestowed upon it the better it will thrive—a singular fact that there should be anything that profits from neglect. The kinds, however, that are known as "secale" and "farrago" require harrowing only.
