Soy bean oil manufacture has in the
past several years been engaged in on
a limited scale by some of the mills of
North Carolina, and many of the mills
of the Southeast are encouraging the
planting of larger acreage in both
beans and peanuts.
But, aside from the additional mar
ket for peanuts and beans afforded
throughout the country by the oil
mills, the immense demand for them
for seed purposes creates a most at
tractive inducement for the farmer
to increase his acreage in them.
