ij-lNCREASE THE YIELD OF
MAIZE AND GET A GOOD
CROP OF PEANUTS TOO
(Curry County Farm Bureau News.)
Headers of the Farm Bureau News
will remember tho peanut demonstra
tion carried on by Emmet Davis of
Ranchvale last year. We are now
ready to report the results of this
demonstration, as Mr. Davis has just
finished threshing his maize and still
has the peanuts on hand.
As you will remember Mr. Davis
planted his peanuts and maize in al
ternate rows, that is, two rows of
peanuts and two rows of maize, al
ternating all the way through the
field of twenty acres, or in other
words, half of the land was given over
to each crop. The mails threshed
out at the rate pf fifty bushels per
acre, or five hundred bushels from
the ten acres actually planted to
maize.
Besides getting this good crop of
maize and peanuts, Mr. Davis has
fattened out ten beautiful hogs on
the land after the crops were re
moved. Mr. Davis is so thoroughly eon
verted to the advantages of this sys
tem that he is going to use it with his
entire crop this year. He figures
that this system will relieve the labor
problem to great extent because
livestock can harvest these crops and
at the same time return a good pro
fit to the owner. '
Besides these advantages it is a
well known fact that peanuts add

fertility to tho soil and we may rea
sonably cjpect an increased yield of
grain this year from the land which
raised peanuts last year. Mr. Davis
will use the same land again this year
but will plant his maize in the rows
where the peanuts grew last year.
By this system of rotation Mr. Davis
is solving the fertility problem and
at the same time getting bigger yields
and bigger profits.
Let Mr. Davis tell you how he does
it He says the little Spanish pea
nuts are the best for this system.
MARKETING
(Curry County Farm Bureau News.)
The problem of the farmers is no
longer making two blade of grass
grow where one grew before, but it is
making a fair profit on what he pro
duces. The farmer must make fair
labor income or be compelled to give
up the business. He cannot afford
to raise crops at present prices and
pay the excessive price for labor, and
expect to hold his standing in society.
So the problem of marketing is one
that must be solved, and we have no
hopo of it being solved by anyone
but the farmer himself.
Marketing Is one of the major pro
jects in the Farm Bureau program
this year, and this organization asks
for the co-operation of every farmer
in the county to help solve this most
important problem. There ara sev
eral committees at work now, and it
is hoped that the farmer will co
operate with them in order that they
may arrive at something definite. Let
us all get together and be prepared to
more adequately handle the crops in
the future than we have in the past.
