STregard lo rice the 'Florida Dis
patch5 says; It. is ndmitled that il can
be planted profitably on any land on
which cotton or corn will grow, and
on a sreat deal of land on which col-
ton nnd corn will not grow, lhe
3 ield appears to be .from 40 to 50
bushels per acre, and to be worth,
for sound and clean rice, $1,25 per
bushel. -.At these figures H is evi-
f3 derhly a profitable production.'
' Here, rice is 15 cents per pound.
If wolitable to grow rice in Florida
at $1.25, U will surely be profitable
to grow it here, if it would only bring
len cents per pound.' True, we have
no rice milk hre, but produce the
rice and the mills will he erected
The culture of rice is very simple,
and about a peck will plant an acre.
The seed is planted in thills 2 to 2
feet opart. -For a good stand there
should be a spear of ri e evoy 2 or 3
inches in the row, which, like wheal
or rye will 'stool out' and make a
large bunch, "flice needs good culti
vation,'' says the Florida Dispatch,
'until it aets a good start in growth;
then it wilL take care of itself until
harvest time, when it can be cut and
handled much like wheat or other
grain. 5 '
