Washington, May 10.-The straw
berry ls the most valuable of the small
nun crops grown In tho United States.
The commercial value of the straw
berry crop In mot) was nearly $18,
000,000, and the acreage was one-half
of the total or all small fruits. This
does not Include thc small home
garden patches, which would proba
bly double the value. Practically
one-fourth of tho crop ls fcrown in

An important consideration lr
growing strawberries In thc Soulh
for the northern markets, according
to the new bulletin, is to select a lo
cation where the climatic and soil
conditions are conducive to the carly
ripening if the fruit, so there, will bc
little competition from regions far
ther north. In many southern sec
tions where strawberries aro produc
ed on a commercial scale, shipments
practically cease as soon as berries
from a more northern region begin to
move in car lots.
The strawberry is propagated com
mercially by runners from old plants.
The runner first forms leaves; then
takes root. This young plant re

some and th? fruit will not ripen as
evenly on soll f this type.
Tho soil on which strawberries are
to be grown should be thoroughly pre
pared, and to secure best results this
preparation should begin at least a
year before thc plants ure to be Bet. ,
On woody land a cultivated crop or one
that will smother out tho woods
should bo grown the year preceding
the planting of thc strawberries. A
good practice, followed by some grow
ers. Is to plant corn with cowpoas be
tween the rows the year before tho
strawberry plants are set. The cul
tivation of the corn keeps down the
weeds during tho thc early part of
Hie season, and thc cowpoas choke
them out during late summer. The
cowpoas also add nitrogen and humus,
both of which aro important to. hut
usually deficient in, tho soil. Tho
cowpoas and corn stubble should bo
turned under during tho fall or win
ter, to insure their decay before dry
wcathe rbegins. In the spring the
land should bc rcplowed and then
harrowed every 10 days or two weeks
up to planting time, in order to kill
tho woods and pulverize the s<M.
Tho plowing should bo deep, so as
to increase the water-holding capac
ity of the soil.
On level, poorly drained SOIIB lt is
necessary to set the plants on raised
beds or ridges. The beds should be
as flat and ide as condition will al
IOT . 'or high, narrow bods dry out
more quickly. Tho ridges or beds aro
commonly made by throwing together
two or four furrows wit'.i a 1-horse
turnplow and levelling thc to pwith a
light drag. It is much better to
make tho hods wide enough for two
or more rows than to make one hod
for each row. This practice is fol
lowed with good results in some
section:, of the South.
Whore there is no danger In an
average season that thc plants will be
injured by excessive moisture, flat
culture gives the best results.
Few soils that are adapted to straw
berry growing are rich enough to
produce ?a "gc crops of fruit without
the addition of manures or fertilizers
of some kind.
Stable or barnyard manure ls thc
best fertilizer for strawberries, be
cause it furnishes both plant food
and humus; but manure containing
wood seed should bc avoided. If
manure is to bo applied thc season
the plants are set. only rotted man
ure should he used. After the land
has bee nplowcd the manure should
he spread broadcast at tho rate of
10 to 20 tons per acre, depending up
on tho fertility of the soil, and har
Manure docs not contain sufficient
phosphoric acid and potash, and foi
that reason it should be supplement
ted by thf; use of commercial fer
tilizers rich in these elements. When
manure is not available, tho plant
food should be supplied by means of
commercial fertilisers and green-man
When a commercial fertilizer ls
used in large quantities, two or more
applications should be made. Tho .first
application should bo made before thc
plants are ?et, and it may be scat
tered broadcast or under the rows;
