By Noah Webster.
By William Dodge Lewis, Edgar Arthur Singer
In agri. a mode of storing green fodder, vegetables, etc., by burying in pits or silos dug in the ground. This has been practiced in some countries from very early times, and has been recommended by modern agriculturists. Brick-lined chambers are often used, having a movable wooden covering upon which is placed a heavy weight, say half a ton to the square yard. One of the earliest of Latin writers refers to subterranean vaults (silos), wherein the ancient Romans preserved green forage, grain and fruit, and the Mexicans have practiced the system for centuries. This, at any rate, is vouched for by Mr. John M. Bailey, one of the pioneers of the system in this country.
