Farmers Asked To Store And Cure Sweet Potatoes Slate College. Miss. — Farmers who cure, grade and store their sweet potatoes in rigid containers and hold them until February are ! guaranteed a price of $1.65 a bush el for U. S. No. Ones as against $1 15 for those marketed this fall. C. L. Welch, state supervisor of the Food Distribution Administra tion. announced this week. The increase of the “floor" price from $1.45 to $1.65 for sweet pota toes marketed in February or lat er was made to induce growers to hold green, sweet potatoes off the market during the peak harvesting period, and prevent prices from bogging down with the large yields which are expected. No change has been made in the support price for November sweet potatoes, which still holds at $1.15 in rigid containers. The guaranteed price for January marketings has been raised from $1.30 to $1.50 for cured and graded sweet potatoes in rig id containers. __ . . - me raising oi me lloor price will make it a paying proposition for farmers to cure and hold their sweet potatoes.” said Mr. Welch ( who expressed satisfaction at the change in the spring support prices. "The e tra 50 cents a bushel guar antees a nice profit to the farmer who holds back his crop. ‘This increase in the floor price also reflects Washington opinion that the commercial market price will be much higher in the winter and spring than in the fall. Last May the price rose to $2.25 a bush el.” Farmers who plan to cure and hold their sweet potatoes should make preparations now for hamp ers and storage facilities, Mr. Welch warned. County Agricult ural agents have full information on storage for farmers who have not held sweet potatoes previous ly. Arrangements should be made at once for new or used bushel containers, whether sweet potatoes are to be marketed in the fall or spring, since spoilage is considera bly less in rigid contaners.
