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

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

Ah San and Okino have not complied

his poor success with taro "in spite of
the fact" that he had used a good deal
of nitrate of soda on his crop.
