PROBLEMS OF BEET CULTURE
By Jesse H. Buffum.
(Continued fronirpagc 11.)
lunate pulling, as sugar content may
not be as high on one day as it would
be a few days later. Siloing gives thc
grower ample opportunity to add his
judgment to that of thc field men, and
he can harvest at his leisure. His
beets remaining in thc ground will
not suffer save in event of rain.
Siloing will be one of thc agents
through which thc growers will be
taught independence. Today many
arc dependent upon liens given on
their crop to sustain them through
thc growing season. 'This compro
mising of one's independence is per
nicious, and to sec it fast done away
with should be one of thc ambitions
of this industry. To be able to hold
his beets until such time as they can
best be delivered is a worthy objec
tive, and factories and growers alike
should contribute to this end. Thc
grower is going to receive propor
tionate remuneration for siloed beets,
realizing good interest on his invest
ment: Today thc factories pay more
for such beets, allowing all thc way
from 20 to So cents per ton in com
pcnsationMor thc extra work.
Thc factories have given a great
deal of attention! to this problem and
to them is due much' credit for thc re
sults already attained. "It is possible
that eventually it will be up to them
' to propose some practical solution
that may be practiced on an unlimited
scale. I hove thought that a partial
remedy might lie in making thc silos
contiguous to thc factory, inasmuch
as thc farmer must handle his beets
one way or another in the field, why
not make thc haul as usual, only plac
ing thc load in a specially built silo
instead of the receiving bins? Thc
factories are already standing for
much of thc additional expense, and
possibly this plan would involve no
more outlay on their part than that
now in practice. The Fort Collins
experiment, which was quite exhaus
tive and of great practical value,
. shows that thc best way to plan
silos is to have them very long
and narrow. Some arrangement
might be made for connecting these
with the (lumc conveyors to thc wash
er. Wy this plan thc farmer would
handle his beets but once as usual,
would not suffer through any of thc
channels suggested above, and espe
cially need not be delayed in any
field operations he may wish to con- j
duct immediately following harvest. (i
Thus the burden borne by thc sugar
company in sharing thc loss of siloing
would become embodied in storage :
bins of special type, so constructed '
that they will largely take thc place
of thc present factory dump.
One factory with which thc writer j
is familiar erected an expensive dump
or set of bins costing nearly fifty
thousand dollars, 200 yards long, into !
which could be dumped 50,000 tons of
beets at one time. An approximate t
of this was tried, with thc result that
disintegration set in and a vast vol
ume of decayed beets fouled thc pro-
cess from beginning to end, clogging
up presses and filters and causing a ,
rare stink never to be forgotten.
Though serious inversion of sugars
took place, thc mess had to be worked
up so as not to be a total loss. Now
that factory will not permit an excess
of io.ooo tons of beets to be on hand
in thc sheds at one time. Thc above
was one attempt to solve thc silo
problem, but it did not work.
During thc year 1906 thc Great
Western Sugar Company introduced "
to its growers a new two-clause con
tract, giving thc farmer an option of
cither (1) delivering his beets as soon
as harvested and receiving a flat rate
for thc same of $4.75 or (2) silo one
fourth of his crop and deliver thc rest
as soon as harvested. For the part 1
delivered immediately he would re- 1
ceivc $5 per ton, and for the part I
siloed and delivered in the winter H
$5.50 per ton flat. This shows that
. thc factory men arc shouldering their
share of thc burden. It is a misnom
er to speak of "overproduction," as
there is no such thing. Mtorc "beets
than thc factory can receive at any
one time should be regarded as but
normal production, in which the silo
plays as fundamental a part as breath
in the human body.
Under present day metho.ds, the
farmer can save considerable handling
by adopting thc plan of siloing a part
