NO. 10 IN A SERIES ON FLUE-CURED TOBACCO '. -' hsJk —%a P^p A tobacco flower (left) magnified twice, with a section of tube removed to show anthers shedding pollen flight colored). Dark stigma at the end of the pistil in the center is receiving the pollen. Tobacco Breeding Defeats Disease Many people do not realize that breeding successful new varieties of tobacco is not a simple matter. Among the most common and erroneous beliefs are these: that simply mixing seed from one plant with seed from another plant with desirable characters will produce a new variety; that when two varieties of tobacco are crossed, the first generation will be a new variety with the best features of both parents. If these two beliefs were true, Federal and State Agricultural Experiment Station research workers and commercial plant breeders would be relieved of a tremendous amount of labor and hours in the laboratory. HOURS OF TEDIOUS WORK As for the first, the requirements for crossing two varieties are th...

NO. 11IN A SERIES ON FLUE-CURED TOBACCO 8 and State Agricultural Experiment Stations are S £ the I step ■ Taking an accurate sample is the first step in iclentifically testing soil. Choose Tobacco Varieties to Suit Soil and Climate In selecting a variety of tobacco to raise, the Flue-cured grower should know, if possible: the type of soil he will be using; the general climate; and what diseases, if any, are present in the soil. By far the best way to decide on a variety is to consult the findings of Federal and State Agricultural Experiment Stations, reliable commercial tobacco breeders and company laboratories working in cooperation with them. They have made exhaustive studies to determine the best varieties for particular soils and climates. Too often, the grower is influenced by those who do not know his requirements. He may choose a variety simply because it worked well for someone else or because his father and grandfather grew it. Many growers depend on the eve-ball test — sel...

4 AFBF Presents Farm Bureau Platform to Parties prosperity, they said, lies in "maximum production per man, freedom of opportunity, sustained and efficient employment in the rest of the economy, and a sound foreign trade." The farm organization pointed out that farm prices supports "are an appropriate and necessary protection against unreasonable price declines and when so used, they are comparable to the minimum wage for labor." However, it is not the responsibility of government, the statement said, to provide price supports at levels which represent profitable returns to farmers or to any segment of the national economy. "This has important implications inasmuch as we are convinced that the higher the level of price supports, the greater the controls and regimentation. "Rigid, high - level supports promising seemingly profitable prices to farmers inevitably lead to an accumulation of surpluses and government controls which restrict the ability of farmers to earn a good income thr...

Augti«t, 1952 New Order Will Defer Essential Farm Labor Because the loss in manpower from agriculture has reached a point where a farm labor shortage is "one of the principal factors affecting production," the Office of Defense Mobilization has issued a detailed policy on agricultural manpower. Among other things, the order provides for the draft deferment of essential farm workers. It discourages recruitment of farm workers as volunteers for the armed forces. It also provides that mass recruitment of workers for industry will not be conducted in areas where a shortage of farm workers exists. The order, signed by John R. Steelman, acting director of ODM, became effective June 27>. It states that "an adequate work force con J sistent with the stage of development in farm technology must be maintained to assure the higher production levels required of agriculture in 1952 and succeeding years." It lists three important objectives: (1) maintenance of an adequate farm work for...

NO. 12 IN A SERIES ON FLUE-CURED tOBACCO MHW Profit From Tobacco Extension Work Much of the practical value in discoveries made by Agricultural Experiment Stations about tobacco would be lost if it were not for Extension Workers. They explain the Experiment Station findings to tobacco growers, and help them in numerous ways to carry out the suggestions made by the Stations. Tobacco Extension Work has also been responsible for the growth of cooperation among tobacco growers, tobacco warehousemen, tobacco buyers, marketing associations, and scientists. As a group whose job is working for the advancement of the whole industry, the Extension Workers are able to see the overall picture, and thus form a workable program for all concerned. However, the major part of Extension Work is concerned with growers. While Extension Workers are not able to visit every farm, they are able to acquaint the growers with successful methods of tobacco production and keep them informed on tobacco problems ...

4 Democrats and Republicans Set Forth General Farm Platforms Republican Platform The good earth is the food storehouse for future generations. The tending of the soil is a sacred responsibility. Development of a sound farm program is a high national duty. Any program that will benefit farmers must serve the national welfare. A prosperous agriculture with free and independent farmers is fundamental to the national interest. We charge the present Administration with seeking to destroy the farmers' freedom. We denounce the Administration's use of tax money and a multitude of Federal agencies to put agriculture under partisan political dictation and to make the farmer dependent upon Government. We condemn the Brannan Plan which aims to control the farmer and to socialize agriculture. We brand as unscrupulous the Administration's manipulation of grain markets during the 1948 election campaign to drive down farm prices and its deliberate misrepresentation of laws passed by the Republican ...

6 Radio Station, WCYB, Bristol, Features Well Rounded Rural Program Service (Editor's -Note: In the past few years more and more radio stations and newspapers have become aware of the great potential of the farmer as a listener or a reader. As a result these mediums have gone all-out to be of a greater service to people in rural areas. Most metropolitan dailies now feature a farm page at least once each week and radio stations throughout the Old Dominion are offering more, and more time for programs aimed at pleasing the great rural audiences. The farmers of the state have time and time again expressed their approval of these trends. In recognition and appreciation of these facts, for the next few months we will salute a few radio stations that are cooperating in making the farmer an informed citizen through programs aired at a time when he may listen. This month we salute Bristol's WCYB, and its Farm Program Director, Jerry Donovan.) WCYB, in Bristol, a 10,000 watt, clear-channel s...
