DEDICATED TO THE BEST INTERESTS of oar County, SUto and Malian VOL. LXVH-NO. 17 I'.\I<MERS FEDERATION MEETS The members of the Harford Coun ty Farmers' Federation enjoyed a very practical talk on potato t^row hy Mr. (’. E. Temple of the University of Maryland. Mr. Temple says that un less each and every farmer is growing at least linn Imshels per acre of pota toes that there is something wrong with his methods and proceeded to prove it. One of ‘he biggest features of loss is that of disease. Potatoes were formerly hi ought from a cold climate and are now being grown un der warmer climate conditions. The potatoes should therefore be planted as early u . the ground is lit in the spring. A v< \ airly variety should he planted very early in the season < i held over. Cobblers should be planted as quick as possible to get them into the ground or held over until the above date. Mr. Temple gave us an Ulus trillion of the above in that McCoi*- micKs are planted in the spring they will come up and form tremendous vines but will not set potatoes before fall. His idea in bringing out this point was that it was not necessary to plant the McCormicks before June ‘JO to July 15th. Other varieties each as Itussels, (been Mountains and Pink Eyes should not he planted prior to that lal*. The seed bed, however* should In* prepared as soon after corn planting time as possible and kept cul tivated up until planting time for pota toes in order to conserve moisture. Mr. Temple told us he felt in many cases where sods were plowed after a crop of hay had been cut off that a lot f moisture had been taken from the soil and left the potatoes without suf ficient moisture to give it proper devel opment. With proper care potatoes can be planted back into the same Held year after year by seal* control Mr. Temple cited us one example in which a Held had been planted to potatoes for 20 years sowing each fall to rye and plowing it down the following spring, Here selection of send was also recommended and (hat a standard of live marketable si/.e potatoes to (he hill be selected. These to be smooth, shallow eyed and with no little ones. The next method of selection was to gel seed free of the following diseases: Mosaic disease of potatoes, is told hy the different color in foliage and always produces small potatoes and carries into the next crop by use of the same seed. Another reason why wc should know where our seed cornea fiom and if possible to buy ceililled eed. Long Island has found it aeces 'iiiv to send their plant pathologist into Maine to supervise the gtowlng ol the seed from year to year. Leaf con Iml i another disease which cause ; considerable damage and a splvea in the spi out is told by the veiy weak, lender sprouts on the potatoes In the p iug. Such potatoi u should not be planted. I'io.V on Temple gave us veiy little enei uragenienl on hying to impiove my vaiielle.. of sei d t han Link Eye, Mc('o mirk aid the New Red. all of which have been adapted to our climatic conditions, lie fell that our Kui.als, Russets ami ether v iriepes /Ik uhl he imported for seed from cooler sections at least every two to J llnee veins. Another serious trouble was brought mil in that of blight, which causes po | (aloes to rot in storage. I Right runs | es a blackness of color on the veiy sur m face of the potato and often limes eun- ses us much as 50% loss when stored in cellars of higher than 05 degrees. 'Chose who missed Mr. Temple's talk have really missed a treat in as much as he gave practical advice for the growing of potatoes under Harford County conditions. MR. RADRBAIIGH GROWING TO MATO PLANTS FOR ALL CECIL Tomato plants for an entire county Is the ambition of County Agent A. I). Radehuugh, Cecil county, who In co operation with the growers has plant ned a large seed bed at Chesapeake City where plants will be grown as one means of solving the difficult prob lem of increasing tht yield par acre of this important canning house crop without materially increasing the cost of production. to W, R. Mallard, special i.t in f ° r ll '" U " l ' vi..i.lty of Murylaii.l who has visited the rapidly ne. project at Chesapeake City, the ptihs w of the county agent and Hie Cecil coun ty growers Is to secure good vigorous plants which may be set out la the Held at a date considerably earlier than is customary. "experiments have shown that the early set plants of Hie Stone variety of tomatoes have yielded from two to t three tons more per acre than plants j of the same variety set in the Held lut j er in the season , suvs Mr. Mallard. | "The University of Muiyliind Kxten sion Service has been recommending early planting as one means of in creasing the yield per acre. The dis advantage of the practice, however, lies in the fact that the vines frequent ly begin producing before the running houses open. The Ceeil county plan of growing the plants cootie rati veiy on a large scale, however, should offer a very practical method of overcoming this objection because it will supply a large number of growers with the ear ly plants and should thus make it prentable foi the canning house# to open earlier in the season to take care of Ihe crop." The project at Chesapeake City will he watched with interest hy piucticully all the grower# In the state, thinks Mr. Mallard, because it will suggest J similar possibilities of cooperation in other sections, Canners also will un doubtedly he Interested in the Hnal re sults of the enterprise, Mr. Rudebaugh has had much prac tical experience in growing tomatoes on a eomrnecial scale and for a number of years produced exceptional yields on liis farm at Mynurn, Harford county. Forty pounds of tomato seed were pur ?! chased fin the Chesapeake City enter ~m e. 'I he plant bed has been heavily fertilized and the young plants will be frequently sprayed as a precaution against disease and insects. The Cecil county growers have contracted with the canners to sell their crops at sl2 per ton. UiE WHEN PARASITES DAMAGE HOGS MOST TO HE STUDIED Lice and internal parasites of hogs are known to cause great losses to (ink producers, but little i known about the period of the animal’s life ulieu the losses from those causes are y •cutest. To clear up this question the Zoological Division and the Animal husbandry Division of the Department of Agriculture are cooperating on a te * that will be carried on through this -pring and summer. They expect l•* ii h i mine the comparative growth and while the hogs are being finished fi the market. In order that con il t.oii may be comparable to those on thi farm 20 hog H will be used in each lot.
