R. Coker of Hartsville at, the
session of the National Associ
ation of Cotton Manufacturers
at Boston, Mass. The title was
''The Now Agriciture in the
South and its Relation to the
Cotton Spiluing Industry.'')
The agriculture of the cotton
States is j(hst entering upon a
new era. The majority of our
farmers are still following in the
Ol riuts, planting the bulk of
of their lai in cotton year after
year, depending largely upon
fertilizer to keep lip production
atnl exhausting the life-giving
hiutus of the soil by the con
tinue(d use of a cleai culture
crop. In many places, however,
evi(lences of improvel methods
are seen. The work (lone by
the 'United States (lepartnent
of agricult hure through the
plant. breeding, farm demon -
strat ion and other bureaus dur
ing the past. decade is beginning
to hear fruit. Many of our
State agricultural colleges, (e

NO CROP REDUCTION.
The new agriculture of the
South contemplates a severe re
duction of the cotton acreage,
but not a reduction of the crop.
A restoration of the depleted
humus is necessary, not only
for the enrichment of our soils,
but is equally necessary in
rendering the crops comparative
ly immune to the effects of a
deficient or an excessive rainfall.
This restorative process requires
the frequent seeding of the land
to crops which leave a large
quantity of vegetable matter to
be plowed under. One of the
most practicable crops for this
purpose is corn, our Southern
practice being to plant peas in
the middles and turn under the
peavines and corn stalks after
the ears are gathered. A few
years ago E. McIver Williai
son of my own county discov
ered a cultural method for more
than doubling the yield, of corn
and since then most of the
farmers in eastern South Caro
lina have been able to atandon
their former practice of import
ine from the West the bulk of
their supply of this grain. A
notable impetus to the pro(luc
tion of this crop has also result
ed from the world's record
yield; of 255 bushels on one acre
made by Capt. Drake of Marl
boro county and of 228 bushels
on one acre made by Jerry
Moore, the illustri'us boy farm
er of Florence county. Both of
these phenomenal yields were
made in eastern South Carolina
in which the author resides
'T'hough it (loes not hear on our
subject. I may be excIsedt for
mentioninug that in this same
section within a radlius of 100
miles have been made many
other wonderful agricultural
records, such as four hales of
cotton per acre; 182 bunshels of
oats per acre and 820 bushels of
lbiish potiat oes on one acre.
Oats, followed b~y Peas the
same year, is also a humus
making crop, and1 the Floridla
velvet bean and the soy bean
are very valuale for hay andl
gr'azing, besides being wvonder
ful soil imupro)vers.
iThle most (effec iv mCIuet hod of
so'l implroveentl, ho wever, is
found ini the .em ploynment of
cover crops which are sown be
twveen the rows of the cultivated
crops in the early fall. These
c'over crops take up the unused
residnue of the fertilizer applied
to 1.he prcedling crop and~ also
use whatever plant food be
c'omies available during the win
ter. They keep the land from
wvashing and sulpply, when
plowed under in the spring, val
uiable fertilizer material and
humus to tihe succeeding crop.
The clovers and vetches are
most generally employed as
cover crops, b~ut the most valu
able Diant for this purpose which
I have tested is a newv variety
