Kentucky farmer? who will need

next spring have been advised by
Agriculture to make plans now to
obtain that grown in this State.
Home-grown seed is an advantage
in that It is usually better acclimated
and of the proper variety. Pur
chasing eed in this State is to be
recommended since it not only sup
plies a market for a home-grown
product but also makes it possible
for the farmer to obtain the best"
seed possible at what is probably the
lowest cost, the fpecialists say,
"The purchasing of soybean and
cowpea seed within the State is of
sin-cinl importance in view of the
fact that u largo acreage of these in poultry raising in that secioln, a
