B-fore bedding your Sweet Po_
tato s, just step out to some public
place and look at one of the many
Posters concerning the Sweet Po
tato Weevil, These posters Itawe
been put on display for your bene
li. as well as for the benefit of the
Nation at large, as we all need
l he sweets that you are abouL to
try to raise, and the weevil will
defeat our wishes in this direction
1 1 we let him do it
About the fiist thing for you to
do is to be sure that you select the
best and cleanest petatoes as the
parent tor your vines. Even then
it will be best for you to make
sure that there are ro weevils in
y 'ur seed slock, and this can on
ly be assured by soaking the seed
in a solution of formaldehyde,
which will kill any weevil that you
may have overlooked. Then be
sure that you bed the seed in new
land, that is land where no pota
toes have bee«, grown for several
years, if possible, and save a simi
lar place in which to set your crop
In short, the sweet potato wee
v"11 present a problem which is en
t eiy different than that presented
by any other insect pest which we
have to fight. We cannot spray for
him and ge: satisfactory results,
but we must beat him bv using
good generalship The follewing
facts concerning this ,pest shou d
he remembere 1 as we must know
the habits and peculiarities of the
insect if we «re to wagé a success
ful war against him
Land which has grown infested
potatoes, will harbor the insects
tor several years, and we should
crop this land to other crops in
order to complete stare out the
weevils before've ven.ure to again
plant il in sweet potatoes. This
should be easily done as it is only
necessary to move off Jabout two
01 three acres from the old place.
The potato weevil «is not much of
traveler,and a comparatively short
distance will generally prove an
effec ive barrier to the n. As a fur
ther precaution, we should nevei
vse the volunteer vines which
come up in the infested field, and
we should be very careful about
taking vines from a neighbor, as
the commonest mode of infesting
a new field is by introdusing th e
Weevils into it by means of infest
ed vines, By usidg these precau
tions we should be able to raise
clean stock
Now a word about handling jthe
potatoes after we have produced
them. Did it ever »occur to you
that we lose too large a propostion
of our crop through careless hand
ling after harvesting? If we take
the trouble to raise clean potatoes
we should certainly not store them
in an old weevil bin or barn, and
we should also try to lessen our
usual large losses through decay,
which are mostly due to improper
storage. In this connection, I
would state that the Agricultural
Department has gone to considéra
ble trouble and expense to solve
tins problem for ut and the result
of their labors is given to us in the
Ventilated Sweet Potato Storage
House. This house has given satis
faction all over the potato section
and if you are interested in it. I
can turnish you with these bulle
tins describing the method >f con
slruction of new houses and the
remodeling of o'd sheds or build
ings to answer the purpose
