STORAGE Of YO1JW
FParmIe's in Vir ginia and the Caro
iinas have U Splendid opportunity to
Ilake a commercial crop out of the
Sweet Potato. Until recently there
has been little demand in Eastern
and Western markets for the South
ern potato, but during the past few
years the dlemanod has gradually in
creased until there is now quite a
'neavy dlemand for Southern potatoes
mll some mrkets. The favorite var
iety is the Nancy Hall, the next in
popularity the Porto Ricans.
Recent prices for Nancy llalls on
large markets range from $1.75 to
$2.50 per bushel hamper.
The sweet potato crop is on of the
surest and easiest crops to raise, but
it is also one of the hardest crops to
keep in storage. Every season in the
South a large percentage of the crop
is a total loss because of inadequate
methods used for storing it. There
are several factors that make the
storage problem a success or a fail
II.P They are:
1. Careful handling.
2. Freedom from I disepse.
3. A thorough state of dryness.
-. Maintaining an e'ven ti'epera
ture while the potato is in storage.
Successful storage really begins in
the plant bed. A great many grow
ers pay little or no Uttenition to the
kinmd of potatoes they use for bed
ding. Generally speaking most any
kimd of potato will suit their i purpose,

Under no consideration shcoutll bags
he used to gather the crop. When
bags are used the potatoes generally
are damaged, thus defeating every at
temptI)t at successful storage. Some
varieties are more susceptible to
bruising than ethicrs.
In experimental work carried onl
with regard to this particular problem
it has been found that in every case
storage rotting has been increased
where skinned aid bruised potatoes
were in the test. Potatoes that were
handled carefully and which has not
been damaged in handling had an
almost imperceptible percentage of
When potatoes are freshly dug they
contain a maximum amount of water,
which is driven off as the potatoes
are cured. I lowever, if they are
placed in storage andi this excess
moisture which is given o ff is allow
ed to collect on them again they wvill
surely be a dead loss to the owner. To
keep theni successfully they must be
brought to a proper condition of dry
ness. This is accomplished by means
of1, ventilaition and hear; in some cases
by ventilation alone. The bank me
thod depends on v'entila zion a lone.
This method is very uncertain. Some
years and perhaps for a1 series of
years the hank method wvill keep them
splendidly, but again there are years
when the bank nmethod will prove to
be disasterouca as for :Is storing the
potatoes are concerned. The reason
for this apparent uncertainty is that
the io .istu cre given off by the potatoes
has not been d1riven off and has been
allowed to ccl leet ins ide the bank.
