Wifh __The C oum‘y Agenf
By DEE M. HARRIS
Assigning Extension Agett
During the past two weeks I
have cavered a number of bean
fields on the Project. I tried to
talk to the growers concerning
the practices in cultivating and
watering they have used. There
is one thought that strikes me
quite forcibly concerning the
spacing of bean rows on the new
land for bean cultivation and
highest crop yield.
Most of the beans on the proj
ect were planted in rows spaced
from 20 to 24 inches apart. Milo

a few, mentioned that on the last
cultivation when they were hill
ing the beans just previous to
laying them by. they noticed that
the bean cultivating tools were
covered with white roots from
the bean plants.
N 01” SO GOOD
Information passed along from
the Experiment Station states
that any time cultivation is suffi
ciently deep or close to the plant
to shear the roots, in all proba~
bility, this cultivation is doing
more damage than good. The
plant must take all the food ele
ments necessary for plant growth
in through vine root hairs or
u . . our rolls! Because they’re
sold “from oven to you." Made
from choicest flour, kneaded
and baked to a golden-brown
goodness, our rolls are a' tasty
addition to any meal! Buy
' feeder roots, as they are common
ly known. In order that this can
be accomplished, the necessary
plant elements must first go into
solution. However, if the root
hairs are.sheared off or injured
in cultivation, the feeding area
of the plant is not only reduced
but also water intake to stop
plant wilting is proportionately
After I talked to Bill somewhat
concerning this practice, he
wanted to know what could be
done about it. I suggested that
one alternative may be the
planting of beans in rows from
26 to 30 inches apart.
As I have gone over some of
the various fields, for instance
Roy Carter’s, parts of the bean
field on the development farm,
and various others, I have no
ticed that the foliage has been so
dense that the bottom leaves of
the plant are beginning to moldi
and show the results of fungus‘
growth. In going over these bean 1
fields it was often difficult to tell ,
which way the rows were plant- 1
SAME FUNGUS GROWTH
If the soil was sufficiently
moist for a maximum bean
growth andremains such for a
period of time, in all probability
not only the leaves but the bean
pods which were near the ground
would show the same fungus as
the leaves. Thus the yield might
be materially reduced. The wider
spacing of the rows would per
mit better' penetration of sun
light, also evener ripening of the
beans, and probably facilitate
irrigation, both by gravity and
sprinkler. _ _ ‘ _ _
I have mentioned to several of
the bean growers on the Project
that at my home in southern
Idaho where we grow beans
quite extensively, the only time
we received a yield of a bushel
of beans produced-tor a pound
of seed used was when we plant
ed 50 pounds of beans to the
We thought that if a little was
good, more was better. Therefore,
we proceeded to increase the rate
or seeding and almost in direct
proportion was our yield reduced.
With a wider spacing of rows,
less seed could be used, a heavier
set per vine could be obtained
due to the increased space pro
vided, the vine would be larger,
healthier and less likely to suc
cumb to disease or insects.

But the potato shipment

The embargo was placed on ex
