DO NOT IMPORT CORN SED
Our first Impulse In planting corn
is to import n good strain of seed
from the mainland. This is not a
good plan. Corn seed imported from
the mainland generally does not do
well here. Wo must not import seed
corn until we nave exausted every
other source to obtain seed in our own
neighborhood. Imported corn seed
arely pays fo the trouble of planting
and raising it under our conditions.
Many of us believe this is a peculiar
ity applying only to Hawaiian condi
tions. It is interesting to note that
the importation of corn Beed from one
place to another on the mainland is
Thousands of tests made by experi
ment stations, tests made in twenty-
ight states by the government, and
the results borne out in actual experi
ence, show the danger or importing
corn. These tacts are not tne re
suits of one test, for one year, in one
locality, but for a period of eight
years in thirty-three counties in Iowa,
with over C000 tests. In not a single
case did the imported samples equal
the home-grown seed. The home
grown corn, in every test, out-yieiueci
the imported corn on an average of
twenty bushels to the acre, and was
of better quality.
According to the above statement
it would hardly seem a sound prac
tice for us to import corn seed from
one island to another with the ex
pectation of getting as large a yield
from that variety as it is capable of
of producing under its home condi
tions. At any rate, corn is different
from other plants in this respect. It
adapts itself to certain conditions,
and does not profit by a change as do
most other plants.
Will we ever learn to save seed?
We can import potatoes, and many
other plants as seed, and expect much
better results than from the home
grown seed. We know that importing
corn seed from the mainland generally
results in disaster to the crop. We
have not yet proven that it is a bad
practice to transport corn from one
island to another. There is a chance
for some Interesting work here. At
any rate it will 'do impossible to inci
sure the loss of land, labor, food and
noney to the people of these islands 1
't they failed to recognize the iin-1
;ortauee of planting corn that h.'.s
aeen acclimated to our conditions.
Dr Young of Lihue, is making ar
rangements with Lihue Plantation to
have a piece of land plowed near the
Lihue Hospital for alfalfa. He thinks
a good sized alfalfa patch would help
out considerably in furnishing feed
for the hospital cows. Anything that
will increase the milk supply is de
sirable now. Nothing will do more
for an increase in the milk supply
at the least cost for feed than a patch

Tlie production of sugar for 1919
will be nearly five million tons below
the world's need, which means large
demands and high prices. The world's
recovery of production will be grad

which means large demands and high
prices for several years. This nieaus
assured prosperity for Hawaii.
