A Suggestion to Farmers.
I adviso all to plant a few acres in
somo good variety of early corn, as I
think we will want corn in our business,
ce very early next ftll, especially so, as the
wheat and oat crop prospect is almost a
blank. I have planted a large variety
40 of white corn for sOveral years that in
10 very early, and will ripen last of August
20 or first or September, if planted early in
20 April and the season is favorable, io
2 with plenty of sunshine and rain. I
20 bought itof Messrs Bruce & Dostor, of
13 Greenvillo, by ordering from the north
- you might got it cheaper.
The best authorities say that guano is
not a complete fertilizer for corn, and
rd does not pay i profit. This accords with
00 my experience. Corn needs ammor.ia,
plhoslloric acid, and potash. Some of
i the best posted men advice the buying
of the chemicals and mixing at home and
thus save four to five dollars por ton.
e For all orops it is recommnded to buy
cotton seed meal (for the ammonia) acid
phosphate, muriate of potash, nitrate of
soda and if a very high per cent of
ammonia is desired use a large proportion
of tne meal or buy muriate of ammonia.
I think we ought to raiso the average
a8 of corn in our sttto to a higher point,
10 bushels per acro one cf tho very low
est in the union. I don't believe one
can make a living at that figure, without
beating somebody out of you and your
horses board. I adviso all to hunt some
of her avocation who cannot average more
than ten bushels of corn por acoro.
There ought to be 4G rows of corn on
an acre of ground, 70 yards long, one
half bushel to the row will make 23
bushels of corn, and the man that only
t makes that much, will get rich slowly.
It requires a strong man, under our
process of farming to cultivate 15 acres
0- of land. This would yield 345 bushels
-35 off for shrinkage, with a family of
e 5 persons (a wife and threechildren) 65
for bread, 100 for horse and visitors
(but few too), 60 for tile cow and porkers
f- (scant feed) making 260 bushels, leaving
0 85 for taxes, clothing, physic, etc., and
to grow rich on; and averago the price at
o 50ct por bushel, a high average too, to
3. take it as it comes from the field, that is
1. more thani mine is worth this year, even
at $1.00 per bushel for geod corn.
Whole is the man financially that only
,r make ten bushels per acre ? I think it
pays to read good agricultural papt rs or
90 those that havo an agricultural page,
you get good advico, Cs1)cially so on
fertilizer formulas and methods of plant- i
a ing, sowing, cultivating, etc., and all
a papers should have more advice from
the old farmers to the young ones in my
opinion. I an a little old myself but
u need information oi the subject. I have
learned to make hogs yield a pound a day
- of meat, but can't see muh1l6 profit in the
' business, without I have potatoes prin
a cipally to feed oi. Can someone loain
y me how to figure it to got a very small
11 profit ?
e The large number of mules and horses
Engam(d is buying for her army, is run
miing up the prices, so tho farmer will
have to buy at higher pricos; and as
? things are running many men are wear
ing (ut the last one they will own. I
0 heaur there is a largo quantity of land
1 being dropped from cultivatiou because
of the land owners and tenants are too
ir poor too own stock. I believe the ad
a vice of maniy of the best farmers is to
r- plant 50 rows of corn to the acre. A
y bale of cotton raised on 3 or 4 acres of
.land is as slowlas 10 bushels of corn.
