MORE POTATOES North Dakota has the soil and the climate conditions for producing the best quality of potatoes, both for table use and seed. In the South much larger yields ofpotatoes are se cured from Northern grown than from home grown seed. North, Dakota should supply this seed trade. Pota toes are a profitable crop to grow, and they furnish the best kind of a culti vated crop to grow, which is needed in North Dakota farming. Mr. Port er, Supt. of the N. D. Demonstration Farms has come to the conclusion that potatoes is the best cultivated crop for North Dakota, being ahead of corn in this respect, and the whole South offers a good market. These market demands must be considered. The varities they want must be grown and disease kept out.—Extension Div N. D. A. C.
