d Louisiana Crop Values.
Louisiana people who feel dis
, couraged over the apparently T
t slow progress made by the farm- p
ing industry, says the Crowley ec
e Signal, will find comfort in the y<
[t figures given by the Department F
h of Agriculture, showing the val- le
e ue of crops by states. These H
- figures show that Louisiana is lo
gaining in the value-of its farm
s output more rapidly than the bI
L majority of the states. In gross a
s value of products Louisiana stood
where she stood three years ago, w
e twenty-eighth among the states. ar
e But this does not mean standing sa
still. In 1910 the value of crops o19
e was $53,000,000 and in 1912 de- v
spite the damage wrought by m;
floods, $61,000,000. 45
" That, however, is not the most
encouraging feature of the re
port. - In 1912 as compared with to
1911, twenty-three of the states th.
showed an actual loss in Agri. so
cultural output and the gain for
the whole United States was on- h
ly 2-2 per cent. In 1912, as com- is:
pared with 1909, nine states oa
showed a loss and the country's PU
average was only 8.2 per cent
for the four years. In the year
just past Louisiana showed a
gain over the previous year of
12.3 per cent, and' a gain over p3
1909 of 36.2 per cent. Only six o
states showed a greater gain in
percentage for the four year -
If Louisiana had the acreage (
that most of the other states at
have planted to farm crops she po0
would be away up among the $2C
leaders. This, we may add, is cor
an object we should all strive to be
accomplish. It is an additional an
encouragement to note that ma
while the south central states
showed a gain of 18.9gper cent,
in the value of farm i5roducts in
the one year, the "north-western
states showed 6-8 per cent gain, I
the north Atlantic states 1.4 per
cent and the other grand divis
ions an actual loss.
Commissioner of Agriculture
and Immigration E; O. Bruner is
enthusiastic at crop prospects.
"With feiv exceptions" he said
"they are good all over the state.
I am looking for a very good
yield this year. The weather has
been favo4led for 'hoe'mg and
cultivating, zthereby leaving the
land in.fine shape for laying by
the older' corn. The river is
safe and we have, nothing to
fear along that line, and a very
small area has been affected by
the flood. We have had more
immigrants coming and buying
land than ever before. The eyes
of the worldseem to be on Louis
iana and you may look for an
out-pouring of new comers from
The people are devoting much
time to good roads. This is a
good move, and it should grow
in importance and interest. What
we need most and is essential to
good roads is a thorough drai:n
age system. You cannot make
nor have good health nor main
tain good roads on poorly drainted
land. I should like to impress
this fact upon every man in the
state of Louisiana; . With good
and thoroughly drained lard
every acre in the state can be
made to double its yield. With
good drainage system mosquitoes
and fever will be a thing of the
past, and a- .well constructed
road jn a well drained country'
will last almost a life time.
"Give us good drainage first
and all of those other things
"The sales of fertilizer have
increased steadily~ since" I have
been commissioner, anda, we in
sected 50,000 tons over labt
year, and last year went consid
erably over any previous year.
I am delighted to see the pto
pk o' New Orleans taking such I1
interest in agriculture snd inn
building up Louisiana along these
lines.- Their co-operation will do
world,3 of good and will lighten
the burden on me and many
others who are striving to build
up Louisiana agriculturally."
