The Planters' Association pub
lishes an annual report of the ex
periment station, which in addi
tion to much that is technical, con
tains also a good deal of general
interest. We select, in substance,
the following items:
Careful experiments at Haka-
lau and elsewhere along the Wind
ward Coast of Hawaii, show that
turning up the soil by cultivation,
small plowing, hilling up, etc., is
not only without value, but is a
detriment, involving a loss of
sugar. Plain hoeing gives the
best results. All tuat is necessary
is to keep the weeds down.
When Salt Is Injurious
Experiments at Oahu Planta
tion in regard to the injury of
salt in irrigation water, showed
(hat one tou of salt per acre was
without injurious effect, but ten
tons to the acre, which meant
04.5 grains to the gallon cut the
yield dowu one ton. The salt,
however, did not affect the qual
ity of the juice. J
Don't Cut Back You
Experiments tend to show the
inadvisability of cutting back.
The loss consequent on a few tas
sels is negligible compared with
the loss of sugar from the shorter
growth. The more progressive
places are now abandoning that

Oahu plantations it commonly
gives 12 tons, while there is an
instance of 1C.3 tons and one of
Badila, a dark red cane from
Australia, ranks next.
Big Loss On Burned Cane
Careful experiments during the
year have emphasized the disas
trous loss that comes for the de
lay in milling burned cane. Such
cane should in nulled just as
soon 'as possible, and any delay
should be measured in hours rath
er than days.'
.)f)jri(ls of Seedlings
l or many years an extensive
campaign of experiment and -de
velopmeut has been conducted in
the cultivation of seedlings, and
vast numbers of new varieties
have been grown, most of which
have not given much promise of
value. Yet, out of this campaign,
a good many canes of great value
have come. The 1920 propagat
ion of seedlings amounted to 42,
042, which gives an idea of the
time and attention which is being
given to the development and
propagation of new varieties.
