Farming in the South will never m
become profitable until our lands are j I
made rich. Soil building should be ^ I
the aim of every farmer. Soil build- |
ing is no easy job, neither can it be
done in a year or two. It takes time
to build up land, but it is possible to
do it.y With the^oll weevil threatening
us* and the shortage of labor now
facing us, we will be forced tj> change
our present method of farming.
There is but one solution to the(
problem?that of diversification and '
