SUCCESSFUL TOMATO GROWING DESCRIBED Bulletin Gives Different Methods Used in Industry. Much Depends on Good Farm Prac tices, Seeds, Plants, Fertilizer, Plant ing, Cultivation and Thorough Spraying. (Prepared by the United State« Department of Agriculture.) About 2(6 quarts of canned to matoes Is the yearly per capita con sumption In the United Stales, accord ing to figures of the United States Department of Agriculture. How the tomato Is grown, put up, and shipped, together with practices followed In communities where Its cultivation Is highly specialized, are given In Farm ers' Bulletin No. 1233, recently Issued, copies of which may he obtained free of charge upon application to the De partment of Agriculture at Wushlng Hardy Tomato Plant Started in Pot. ton, D. C. The bulletin also contulns valuable suggestions to growers as to methods which are profitably followed where the crop Is most successful. The story of the tomato Is that of a delicacy which has lived down a had name and come Into Its own after years of effort. Of American origin, It attracted unfavorable attention first about 1800, and for a long time wus branded us poisonous and consequent ly avoided. Later, designated us the love apple, it found f'uvoi with a few lovers of delicacies and with growers. By 1887 the total pack of canned to matoes in the United gtutes was about 3,000,000 cases of 24 one-quart cans euch. Now the commercial pack, ex clusive of soups, purees, ketchup, and pulp exceeds 10,000,000 cases of 24 No. 3 cans. These figures do not In clude the millions of cans put up by housewives for home consumption or the fresh tomatoes which grace Amer ican tubles during the growing season. Chief among the states where to matoes are ruised for cunning are, In order named : Maryland, Indiana, Mis souri, Delaware, New Jersey, New York, Utah, Illinois, Kentucky, Ohio, Pennsylvunlu, Tennessee, Virginia, and West Vlrginlu. The ucreuge planted In tomatoes for canning purposes only In 1920 was 244.745. The yield from that acreage was 1,003,358 tons. The bulletin follows the methods used from the seed to the cun, describes methods of planting, soils best adapted for the vegetable's growth, tells how the crop may best he harvested, and sums up the chief requirements for good results as fol lows : "Successful tomato growing depends ou good farm practices, good seed, good plants, proper fertilizer, careful planting, clean cultivation, and dis euse control through spraying and through the use of disease-reslstunt varieties. Growers who pay attention to these factors produce crops which give them satisfactory returns." How Noiseless Is the Growth. Much has beeu accomplished; more tliuu people are aware, so gradual lias been the advance. How noiseless Is the growth of corn ! Watch It night and duy for a week, and you will never see It growing; hut return after two months, and you wtll find It all whiten ing for the harvest; such, and so imperceptible In the stages of their motion, are the victories of the press. — De Quincey. GROWTH OF STRAWBERRY INDUSTRY DUE TO INTELLIGENT MARKETING «* m a : Paper Labels for Special Shipments. (Prepared by the United States Department of Agriculture. ) Within Six years Louisiana has taken first place among the states as regards value of strawberry produc tion. The 1921 season was the best ever known in the industry, 1,400 car loads of Louisiana berries being mar keted in 74 cities in the United Stutes and Canada. In Chicago the 24-pint crates brought as much us $0.50 each, and during practically the entire mar keting season Louisiana strawberries sold at a higher price tliuu any other berries on the market, due to the high quality of the product. With such a record of achievement, much Interest centers in the opening of the 1922 marketing season. As ; heretofore a field station of the United States Department of Agriculture will be maintained in the Hummond dis trict during the season to keep pro ducers and shippers informed daily of strawberry marketing conditions in the principal consuming markets, prevail ing prices, curlot shipments from com peting areas, and other marketing data essential In the scientific marketing of agricultural products, and granted favorable conditions the 1922 season should surpass even the 1921 record. Nation-Wide Distribution. The Louisiana strawberry industry is of national Importance. The crop has nation-wide distribution, tlie cur lot shipments spreuding out like a fan from the Atlantic coast to the Hocky mountains. Last year 2!) cur aàV ? 'àii : éV < V i i c . iS Tray Used for Shipping Berries. loads also went to four cities in Can ada. Chicago is the principal market for tlie ffuit, Detroit, Boston, Pitts burgh und New York ranking next in the order given. Heat, cold and distance—marketing obstacles that seemed insurmountable a few years ago—have been overcome by the grow ers and shippers, and with continued careful selection, grading, packing and shipping, marketing experts say that the Industry will enjoy increasing prosperity. During the early years of the straw berry Industry in Louisiana several va rieties of berries were grown, and Chi cago was the muin market outlet. To day the Klondike variety is grown ex clusively, and Louisiana strawberries have a wider distribution than the strawberries from uny other section of ttie country. The quality of tlie fruit is dependable, and there is every where a demand for the berries. When picked the berries ure carried to pack ing sheds, where practically each one is handled separately. Both the 24 plnt Ha Hock crate and the 24-pint ventilated crate have been used in packing the fruit, although during the past few seusons there lias been a con siderable decrease in the use of Hal lock's crates, which ure known locally as "coffin" crates. Practically all grow ers are now using ventilated crates, as berries stiipped in such containers ar rive at market in sound condition and usually command a premium over the price paid for berries in non-ventiluted crates. Trains of Strawberries. Fully 90 per cent of the marketed crop Is shipped by express, the rail road company providing two or three express fruit trains daily. These trains run on a schedule of 40 miles an hour, which puts the fruit on the Uhleugn market before daylight the second morning. Less than carload ship ments are cared for by the express company, which operates local iced cars to pick up small shipments. The growers have good transportation fa cilities, deliveries are prompt, and few Instances are known where cars have not arrived at destination on time. Strawberry buyers from the large consuming markets establish head quarters at Hammond during the mar keting season, sales being made on a cash f, o. h. shipping point basis. The fruit is inspected at shipping point and acceptance taken before the cars move. At Ponchatoulu all ears un sold at public uuctiou. Several strawberry preserving plants Special Shipments. ; fa on un In the district utilize overripe and soft stock in tlie preparation of fruit for the ice cream and soda fountain trade in northern cities. Perhaps the principal reason for the prosperity enjoyed by Louisiana's berry growers is that they keep them selves closely informed upon day-to day market conditions. The producers appreciate that "knowing the markets" enables them to meet tlie consumers' desires us regards quality and quan tity, and that to overstock one mar ket when another market is undersup plied is unsound from both an econom ic and financial viewpoint. Every duy during the marketing season a dahy report of conditions and prices at tie principal marketing centers through out tlie country is issued by the local representative of tlie United States Department of Agriculture. This in formation is obtained by trained mar ket reporters at consuming points. The growers are also informed as to daily carlot shipments everywhere in tiie United States. Thus tlie pro ducers nut only know tlie prices be ing paid for berries at tile various con suming markets, hut exactly what ompetition may he expected from other sections shipping strawberries at about tlie same time. The depart ment also furnishes daily information regarding temperature and weather onditions, so that tlie necessary icing and refrigeration cun he provided for the shipments. Information for Growers. The department's station at Ham mond was opened in 1915, and was tlie first field station established anywhere by tlie United States Department of Agriculture for the issuance of mar ket news reports. Here, in tlie heart of Louisiana's' strawberry producing district, arrangements were first made to study methods of packing, ship ping, and distributing strawberries lt\ the United States; to keep growers in formed of strawberry movements from other regions, and to inform them daily of prices and conditions in the lead ing consuming markets. Hammond was selected as tlie location for tlie department's first field station because of the large proportions that the Louis iana strawberry industry had attained. Louisiana then ranked fourth in com mereial strawberry importance. To day the state ranks second in carlot shipments. ROUND POSTS MOST DURABLE One Kind of Timber Will Last as Long as Others if Amount of Heartwood Is the Same. Is a split fence post as durable as a round fence post? This is a question frequently asked of the United States Department of Agriculture. The fact is, says the forest products laboratory, one kind of post will last about as long as the other If tlie amount of heartwood is the same in both. But if the percentage of sapwood is in creased by splitting, the split post will he less durable and if the percentage of heartwood is increased, it will he more durable than a round one. 1'osts of spruce, hemlock, or any of the true firs are exceptions to this rule, be cause their heartwood and sapwood are about equally durable. When posts ure to he treated with creosote or other preservative, a round post is preferable to a split post, be cause of the comparative ease with which the sapwood can be treated. The heart faces on split posts do not, as a rule, absorb preservative well. Split red-oak posts will take treat ment, because the wood is very porous, but the heart faces of split posts of many other species, notably white oak. red gum, and Douglas fir, resist the penetration of preservative, even un der heavy pressures. TOO MUCH MANURE INJURIOUS Fertilizer May Burn Crop if Season Very Dry—No Fear of Harm if Worked In. The claim that too much manure will burn up the crop is only partly true, it may if it is a very dry sea son and the manure is not worked well into tlie soil. But there is little like lihood of injury from a heavy applica tion, if worked in right. Far more corn lias been lost through too little than through too much manure. PLANT ENGLSH PEAS EARLY Seed Should Be Put Into Ground as Soon as Soil Will Permit Some Good Varieties. English peas should he planted just as soon as the soil will permit. Thom as I.axton, Alaska, llorsford's Market Garden, and Telephone are excellent varieties, and the Telephone lute. The seed should be sown thickly in the drill in rows 3 feet wide and covered 5 to 6 inches deep.
