be held d C kmson at an early date
for the purposey f working out a plan
for the farmerf of the three states to
secure vetch f.nd crimson clover seed

In a recent Interview Mr. Long
said: "Another great interest has
been taken in conection wi-th this
live stock in South Carolina in cover
crops. Last .spring when we began tc
agitate the question of cover crops I
thought if the demonstration agents
in South Carolina succeeded in getting
20,000 acres of vetch and clover that
they would be doing well. Reports that
are now coming in indicate that the
acreage of these two crops will be
largely over 100,000 acres. A con
ference will' be held at Clemson Col
lege with the state agent of the dem,
onstr-Alion work of Georgia, North
Carolina and South Carolina with
Clarence Poe of The Progressive
Farmer for the purpose of working
out a plan by which vetch seed and
crimson clover seed can be secured
next year for the farmers of North
Carolina, South Carolina and Georgia.
The plan we have in mind is to let
the demonstration agents begin to
take orders' at once for clover and
vetch seed the money to be deposited
with Clarence Poe and Mr. Poe to
select a man to go to Germany and
Russia and buy our clover and vetch
seed in shipload lots. In this way
we will save a considerable sum anr
be able to purchase seed of greater
purity. One of the troubles we have
had th-is year -is that hairy votch seed
have been mixed with Oregon seed,
which of course is nothing like as
good as hairy vetcl seed. It is not
our purpose to interfere with the seeds
men, but we believe this action a
necessity in order that the showing
of vetch and clover may become a
regular part of our agricultural sys
South Carolina Has Good Report.
