Corn and Potatoes
For Local Planting
Experiment Station Tells About
Results Obtained on Haiku Demon
stration Farm. Seed for Distribution.
Among the most promising crops
for island conditions that have been
tried out at the Haiku sub-station of
the Hawaii experiment station, are
sweet potatoes. Several varieties
have been developed by selection, un
til the station is now quite sure that
it has varieties that appeal both to
the consumer and to the farmer.
White potatoes and field corn also
comes in for attention, in the des
cription recently Issued by the station
In connection with its seed distribu
tion work for this year. Along these
lines the paper in question says:
New Era Yellow Dent. A select,
medium early, medium size grain yel
low dent corn. The type most in de
mand in the Honolulu market. Yield
ed at the rate of 64 bushels per acre
and shelled 84 per cent, grain at Hai
ku in 1914. Average yield for three
years over 50 bushels per acre. (Note":
See Press Bui. No. 42, 11. A. E. S. En
titled "Corn Culture and Improve
ment.") Hickory King. An old standard.
Small cobs, large seeded, white var
iety, succeeding well at Haiku. Fairly
weevil resistant, but. not acceptable to
Hawaiian markets because of white
color and large size of grain.
Cultural Notes. Field corn may be
planted in rows three feet apart, eight
inches apart in the row. riant as early
in the year as the weather conditions
will permit. For green fodder and
silage the so-called "Kula" corn of
Maui gives very satisfactory resuf's,
especially in a wet season. Corn is
a greedy feeder and requires a rich
soil and ample moisture to mature a
maximum crop. New lands usually
give good yields when well tilled. If
lacking in organic matter, old land
should be given a heavy dressing of
barn yard manure, or a heavy growth
of some leguminous crop should be
well worked into the surface eight in
ches. When the organic matter is well
rotted the crop may be planted with
the assurance, climatic conditions be
ing favorable, and seed of adaptable
kind, that a good crop will result. It
will often pay to use commercial fer
tilizer 500 pounds per acre of the
5 per cent Nitrogen (V6 Nitrate,
8 per cent Phosphoric Acid (W. S.)
6 per cent Potash (Sulphate)
has given good results when applied
In the row at time of planting at the
Sweet Potatoes. This is one of the
surest crops that can be grown either
in the garden or as a field crop.
Twelve varieties have been grown at
the Haiku Station during the past
three years. The three best varieties,
both as to cultural adaptibility as well
as market acceptable have been
selected and are offered In the follow
New Era. A vigorous growing var
iety and the most prolific sort tested.
Especially adapted to stock feeding,
although a fourth to a third are of
a size and quality to make them ac
ceptable for table use. Ten plants
have given a gross yield of 280 pounds
vines and tubers 70 pounds of
which consisted of tubers. Individual
tubers weigh as high as five pounds
at the end of a six months growing
Merced Sweet. This Is a tnost re
fined variety producing small yellow
skinned tubers of highest quality. The
variety most nought after in the San
Francisco markets. It commands as
high as 8 ci.i'a rer pct'ud from April
"Medera" or "Kauai." An excel
lent yellow variety brought to Kauai
from Medera by Portuguese Immi
grants. Has met with a ready sale in
the Honolulu markets where the low
est price thus far obtained has been
f 1.25 per 100 pounds.
50 to 100 cuttings of each variety,
depending upon the demand will be
offered to applicants at 25 cents for
each variety. The plants should be
set out twelve to eighteen inches
apart in rows four feet apart. Two
thirds of the cutting should bo placed
underground and firmed. To multiply
the stock, cuttings can be made as
soon as runners are sent out by the
Potatoes. During the past year
two distinct strains of ten varieties
of potatoes were grown in an extend
ed variety test. The spring crop cov
ering some two acres, gave poor yield.
The fall crop, however, which was
grown from selected seed from the
spring crop gave excellent results
both in quality and quantity. 25 to
50 selected eyes of each of two follow
ing varieties, depending upon the de
mand, will be offered.
Bliss Triumph. An early round red
potato yielding a first class potato
for table use. Tubers very uniform
and yields satisfactory.
American Wonder. An excellent
white potato resembling the Burbank
in appearance, but is much earlier.
We would recommend planting the
eyes in rich soil one foot apart in rows
three to four feet apart. Plant shal
low in a mellow well drained soil. A
handfull of wood ashes worked into
the bottom of the hill will add great
ly to the productivity of the crop.
A charge of 5 cents for each var
iety of seeds, which will usually con
sist of half pound lots, excepting In
the case of Sann Hemp, of which two
ounces will be alloted to each appli
cant. DO to 100 cuttings of sweet
potatoes and 25 to 50 eyes of each
variety of Irish potato will be alloted
to each applicant. These will be
charged for at the rate of 10 cents
per lot. Orders will be filled in the
order of their receipt and applican

Inches project over the edge of a tablo.

the attempt underestimates the dis

mark, never seeking to mislead or to
misrepresent. Straight talk Is a vir
tue that is practiced all too little. Im
agine what a different world this would,
be if there were no other kind in busi
ness, in domestic affairs, in society, in
diplomacy between employers and
workers, politicians and people, govern
ment and governed and in the profes
sional and the business worldl How
large a part of many men's occupations
would be gone if there was never any
thing but perfectly straight talk be
tween man and man! Christian Herald.
