BOX 28 : WAIMEA t The County Agent visited Kuml- shlma of Wailua, who intends to ship '30 bags of peanuts to the Territorial Market He averaged from twenty- five to thirty bags to the acre. The soil Is very sandy. The shipment to the market will consist of 1500 pounds. Mr. Bento's Kauai Hybrid Corn is becoming quite popular. Some large plantings of this variety are being planted. The county agent looked further into Mr. Keliino'.'s food product pros pcct. The land Is Ideal for taro as It Is above any other taro plantings and therefore the Irrigation would no! be likely to carry taro diseases. The land has not been cultivated for four years yo Is overgrown with grass but free from underbrush. Large shipments of p.iddy are leav ing Hanulei for Honolulu, 'ihere ur. not enough mills In Hanalei to handle all of the paddy as rapidly as the planters would like to hava it milled Some of the rice planters in Hanale. have had poor results with taro in former years. The county agent found that they had used fertilizer too rich in nitrogen which nv..-y have been one cause for their poor results. The stores In Hanalei have practically no rice on hand. 'Matsumulo of Muna has a large planting of watermelons, about five acres. He had good success this year and has still a few hundred niolonu unharvested. He intends .to plant corn and peanuts and to try alfalfa. Several other farmers are preparing to have, gardens when winter arrives. Large shipments of paddy are leav ing Hanalei for Honolulu. These ship ments are being made by the local planters to relieve indebtedness to their agent in Honolulu. This is a case where a little local capital would tend to keep the rice on this island. Ah San and F. Okino, two coffee shop proprietors of Waimea, have been refused permits for the purchase of flour by the food administration. Ah San and Okino have not complied with the requests of the administra tion on several occasions. Some of the rice planters in Hanale evidently need enlightenment regard ing the use of fertilizer. One of them recently told the county agent about his poor success with taro "in spite of the fact" that he had used a good deal of nitrate of soda on his crop.
