EXPERIMENTAL FIRM
m pro
Objects and Purposes of Those,
Managing It.
Mr. Lyman E. Carrier who has
been in STAUNTON for a few days
doing work in connection with the
State Experimental Faim on the New
Hope road near STAUNTON left for
his laome at Blacksbnrg yesterday.
Mr. Carrier occupies the chair of
Agronomy at the Virginia Polytech
nic Institute at Blacksbnrg, and he
thus has to do with agriculture al
most entirely. The session at Blacks
bnrg is just'closing, which hurried
Mr. Carrier home, but he will return
here in a short time and go more ac
tively into the work for which the
farm was bought. Mr. W. W. Sproul
whose interest in experimental farm
ing is well known, was instrumental
not only in getting the agricultural
department of the state to purchase
this farm, but to get it to purchase
any farm. When he had obtained
consent to buy a farm, naturally Au
gusta was selected by him as the lo
cation for it. The farm, bought, those
in charge think, presents as many ad
vantages as any that could have been
selected not only on account of posi
tion but on account of climate and
soil. The farm is being laid off- into
squares of one-fourth, one-half and one
acre lots, and experiments to demons
trate the use of fertilizers will be
numerous and it is to be hoped profit
able. Then pure seeds will be raised.
Pure corn will be grown there in or
der to improve the seed corn of this
section particularly. To those who
do not know what is meant by pure
corn, we desire to say that Professor
Carrier says it is corn that has been
kept fiea from common or hybrid corn
Corn growers find that pollen can
be earned for a long distance, and
that inferior corn will mix with fine
grades at long, distances. One of the
things to be done here next season
particularly will be to raise pure corn,
as well as other pnre seeds, so that
the farmers of the state may get the
best. The farm was bought rather
late to do much this season. The
most of the land was in crop when
purchased, so that another season
must pass before full experiments can
be made. The growing of Alfalfa will
be demonstrated, and the crops which
contain tlie greatest number of elem-1
ents which permanently enrich
ground, will be experimented with.
Mr. Carrier has advertised for a
Ctent farmer and our farmeis
3 well to read that* advertise
now appearing in the DIS
! H. The farm needs some re
pairs in the shape of fencing etc., but
in a short time this will be done.
Onr people will do well to bear in
mind what is being done there, and
Ie season advances visit; the farm
>cc for themselves.
