Haulm, Halm, or Hawk, among farmers, signifies the stem or stalk of corn, pease, beans, etc. from the root to the ear.

The haulm of beans affords an excellent fodder for working-horses; that of pease, if saved in a favourable season, makes nou-ri.shing and wholesome food lor horses, cattle, and sheep. - The stalks of potatoes are of considera-ble utility as a manure : if spread on coarse sour pasture, they will totally change its nature, and enhance the value of the land from ten to fifteen shillings per acre.
