Pnsslng as we aro through ne of
tho most critical periods in t: . '?1ST
tory of South Carolina, economic val
uos aro of greater importance, and
the conservation of our natural re
sources, eliminating small items of
wasto with well-directed effort,
should impress all alike.
Tho colton boll weevil and finan
cial depression prevalent means rad
ical changes in our general'agricultu
ra 1 system and duo consideration and
preparation for which should have
benefited us years ago.
Wo have too long practiced tho
one-crop systom-thought and trad
ed only in terms of cotton. Our natu
ral rosources and opportunities have
boon abused. Worst of all, .wo have
practiced as a people systematic rob
bory from tho hand upon which we
rely for subsistence of tho soil.
Tho extravagant uso of commer
cial fertilizer has boen a common
practice-one from which no ono
cnn show soil improvement except
whero such plant food was used to
produce plant lifo, to bo returned in
part or as a whole to the soil.
Had tho bulk of monoy spent dur
ing the last twenty years for com
mercial fertilizers boen applied to
semis of the various legumes, judi
ciously used, we would now he liv
ing in a veritablo land of milk and
honoy, and would feel to a much less
extent the demoralizing influences bf
tho cotton boll weevil.
In an ngricutural community es
pecially thero is no subject of such
importance as soil building. Indeed,
upon this and tho control of soil
mos turo depends success and eco
nomic crop production.
Our soils of tho Piedmont are sub
ject to enormous losses through ero
sion, gullies-great avenues or chan
nels through which our plant food
and best soils pass to wasto; graves
Cor our soil fertility; profit-enters
constituting a great source of loss
which might be prevented.
Humus, OT decaying vegetable mat
ter, is the greatest storehouse of
nitrogen, which ls the most expen
sive constituent of plant food, and
one which every farmer can and
should grow in form of soil-building
crops, of which there aro a large
number for summer and winter use.
The too common practice or using
poor seed likewise causes largo an
nual losses. Poor, inferior seed aro
dear at any price. It takes no m >ro
land or work for good seed and pro
fits-other things being equal, or
Tho common practice of exchang
ing or buying new seeds every few
years is not very commendable. It
ls better to start "with puro seed and
keep them so by- Held and other se
There ls a double opportunity for
improvement with corn where re
selection can bo practiced in the bin.
Retaining and planting seed of
unknown merit for sentimental or
other reasons is as a rule unprofit
able. It ls better for any community
to first sccuro tho best standard va
rieties of proven merit for the par
ticular section, and all use tho same.
Dy this method larger yields can be
produced and standards raised in ad
dition to production of uniform
grades in quantities and quality suf
ficient to command better market
Tho careful and observant farmer
who starts with good seeds of cot
ton can help himself greatly by care
fully watching for off-type plants
bolls, etc. Discarding such plants
and later selecting tho.very best Indi
vidual plants hi the field for brood
ing plot the following year, or plant
lng seeds from each selection in sep
arate row on uniform land, giving
each selection and row a number
and at the end of the season weigh
ing cotton from each row separately,
retaining seeds from the outstand
ingly high yielding rows for Increas
ed plots the following year.
Corn has a wonderful tendency tr
mix. it is, therefore, of great Im
portance that communities should
co-operate In planting tho same va>
riety. Having done this, great bone
fits uro possible by watching thc
tassels of tho inferior stalks.
Field selection of seed corn shook
follow later, selecting the best oar!
from tho best stalks which are nor
mally spaced. Kars with long sbnnki
or exposed ends, or which aro tot
high or too low, should be avoided.
The foregoing are simple method!
which would lend to holp our agri
cultural advancement if practiced
and which can be done by any formel
been inted successfully In tho itmont
