Fair Market Prospects For Quality Potatoes Fair market prospects for Ohio po tatoes emphasize the need for care ful harvesting and packaging so the growth can obtain the maximum amount for his crop, according to E. B. Tussing, specialist in vegetable gardening, Ohio State University. Several factors are responsible for loss of money on potatoes after the crop has been produced. Immature potatoes have thin skins which are easily broken or the potato may be damaged by lying in the sun after digging. Broken skins on such po tatoes detract from their appearance, and the developments after sunscald may ruin potatoes for cooking. Good potatoes can be made into culls by injuries in digging or handling. Mechanical diggers should be operated so the blade passes be neath the potatoes. Enough dirt should be lifted with the tubers to protect them from bruising while going through the machine. Ohio potato growers have sold most of their potatoes in nearby markets so have not been greatly in teresting in grading or packaging the crop. Most women buyers now adays do not buy potatoes in 100 pound sacks, and they watch the po tatoes as the seller puts them in small containers. Buyers who see small potatoes, ill-shaped tubers, or any other un desirable ones usually prefer to pay a few cents more for a out-of-state stock which in size and appearance, annually are markets thousands of bushels of potatoes pro duced in states which have acquired a reputation for marketing good stock. Ohio marketing laws require that potatoes sold in packages be labeled according to Ohio grades which are the same as federal grades, except that packages of potatoes can be sold ungraded if they are labeled un graded or grower’s grade.

Barrels which are kept filled with water, buckets conveniently placed and left near the barrels, and acces sible ladders will help reduce the toll taken by farm fires which cost 3,000 lives and property valued at $95,000,000 in 1938. ^ed POTASH YOU are looking forward to a profitable grain crop next year and good clover or al falfa the year following, then use fertilizer high potash when seeding this fall. Potash in creases yield, stiffens straw, and keeps the grain from lodging. It improves quality by plumping out the kernels and increasing test weight. To insure good growth of clover or alfalfa fol lowing grain, plenty of potash must still be avail able in the soil. A 2-ton yield of clover hay re quires 3 times as much potash as is needed to produce 25 bushels of wheat 4 tons of alfalfa need more than 7 times as much. Use 200-400 lbs. of 3-12-12,0-12-12,0-20-20, or similar ratios per acre for fall seedings. Often the increased hay yields more than pay for the fertilizers used, leaving greater profit from the increased grain yields. Consult your county agent or experiment station about the plant-food needs of your soil. See your fertilizer dealer. You will be surprised how little extra it costs to apply enough potash to insure good yields and high quality. AMERICAN POTASS INSTITUTE, INC. lnv.atm.nt Building Washington, D. C.
