BANKERS : HELP TO PUT A COUNTY AGENT IN EVERY AGRICULTURAL COUNTY ! [Newspaper Article] — Banker Farmer — 1 July 1917
BANKERS : HELP TO PUT A COUNTY AGENT IN EVERY AGRICULTURAL COUNTY ! THE United States Department of Agriculture hopes to be able to place a county agent in every agricultural county of the United States . Until the legislation which would permit this is passed , the Departments plans are not announced . . That the United States Department of Agriculture considers the extension of the county agent system the most important step it can take toward farming that will feed us and our allies , with profits for the farmer and fertility preserved for the soil , is sufficient commendation for the county agent , if the system needs it . When the county agent goes to work in a county , the farmers are given real help , instead of the advice which is so p lentiful these days . In Mr . Traylor s address to the bankers of New York state , which is published in this issue , he pointed out the special opportunity of the bankers to help to establish county agents .

In creating up our replies we lound that scarcely any of them hadroads , who made no charge for their services which enabled us made any efforts ...

Get better yields by keeping soil moist and warm . Cultivate to store moisture . Cultivate as soon after rains as the soil has dried sufficiently . Keep the soil surface well stirred and light . This will let rain soak in quickly and reduce waste . In fair weather it will prevent the subsoil from drying out . A well-stirred surface soil will send moisture , laden with plant food , up through the corn roots and stalks to make ears . Cultivate to destroy weeds . Every weed in a cornfield is an enemy . Weeds drink up moisture and consume plant food that should go to make corn kernels instead of weed seeds . Destroy your weed enemies when they begin to appear . Don t wait for them to mobilize in strength . Attack weeds if possible in fair weather . You will then have the sun as a powerful ally . Cultivate to warm the soil . Evapo...
Food Thrift Will Help to Win the War-We Must Starve the Garbage Pail [Newspaper Article] — Banker Farmer — 1 July 1917
Food Thrift Will Help to Win the War-We Must Starve the Garbage Pail By Charles Lathrop Pack President National Emergency Garden Commission AMERICANS yearly waste enough food in their kitchens to feed the entire British army in Europe . This annual waste has been estimated at $ 700 ,- 000 , 000 but this probably is too low . Whatever the actual amount may be , it shows that American carelessness , if continued , will pour down the sinks and into the garbage buckets the assurance of victory in this war . But what of other waste—waste on farms , waste in transportation , losses in storage ? Compared with this other and greater waste , all of which can be largely avoided by care and industry , the kitchen waste , also preventable , is infinitesimal . In normal times , cut out these wastes and there would be no cost of living problem . Cut them out NOW and , in spite of the gloomy forebodings of those who prophesy a world famine on account of scarcity of farm labor and gradual dwindling...

How Canada Rallied Its Forces for Patriotism and Thrift By J . B . Spencer Editor Agricultural Gazette of Canada D URING the closing months of 1914 Canada realized the important part that food would play in successfully prosecuting tne war . it was realized that the practices of the best farmers , if followed by those less successful , would result in better crops than had heretofore been grown .

This was followed by a series of public conferences between well-informed experts and farmers . The plan involved series of meetings addressed by officials of the Dominion and Provincial Departments of Agriculture and other authorities , who discussed with practical men in addition to the technical matters connected with farming , such economic questions as markets , prices , the effect of war on demand , the effect of shortage of labor supply , anl also...

To obtain a maximum production in these regions a plan of crop insurance has been suggested but it has remained for the farm bureau of Worcester county , Massachusetts , to work out a plan and put it into effect . A group of manufacturers in Worcester have sponsored this plan , which has been worked out by a committee consisting of farmers and representatives of the farm bureau . It is reported that the plan has been readily taken up by farmers and the working out of the idea will be watched with interest . The plan is described as follows by the farm bureau : The two main elements which have discouraged production on Worcester county farms are : i . Uncertainty as...

Appeals to South Carolina Bankers [Newspaper Article] — Banker Farmer — 1 July 1917
Appeals to South Carolina Bankers ONE of the mistakes that our modern civilization is so apt to make is over emphasizing the importance of cities and factories and failing to appreciate the fundamental necessity of agriculture which is the basis of the life of every one of us . In these days , however , the whole world is appreciating more than ever what agriculture means in the life of every man , woman , and child . The recent appeal of our President to all of us to aid in every possible way the agricultural interests of the country is the best possible proof of this . Therefore , I am sure thai ; we could not have chosen a more appropriate place for our convention than the Clemson Agricultural College . The bankers of South Carolina , if they want to , can make South Carolina prominent in almost any line of agriculture . For instance , we are well fitted , as it works in with our other farming interests , to make this state a large producer of dairy cattle . If we decide to make ...

How the Bankers * State Associations Are Cooperating With the Farmers [Newspaper Article] — Banker Farmer — 1 August 1917
How the Bankers * State Associations Are Cooperating With the Farmers Cooperation—cooperation with state colleges of agriculture—cooperation with state councils of defense with various agencies all looking to an honest and helpful cooperation with the farmer for a more productive and a more productive agriculture—that is the keynote of the work which the American banker is doing in 1917 . If only every farmer and banker in the country could read the plain and unvarnished reports summonsing a few of the activities of ihe committees on agriculture of the bankers state associations—the farmers that they may know something of the ambition of the bankers to cooperate with them—the bankers that they maye be inspired along the paths biased by progressive committees . County Organisation Aids Michigan . AN extension of the county agent system to every agricultural county and more interest in boys and girls club work have been two purposes of the committee on agriculture of the Michigan Bank...

Bereman Bankers : Help to lay the foundation now for the big crop which the farmer must raise for 1918 Find out what is the greatest need of your community—seed , machinery , fertilizer , and so on—and plan to cooperate to supply it . Read this article carefully . UNDOUBTEDLY 1917 is agriculture s most fruitful year so far , but the best part of this year is that it is a preparation for another . Prophecy is always fraught with uncertainty at best No one can tell what 1919 will bring , but the chances are that 1918 is going to be the American farmer s Big Year . If the war were to close today , America would still be the world s granary . Out of our surplus must be fed the millions of Europe —friend and foe . The demand for our wheat and corn and meat and vegetables will continue until the embattled nations have had time to heal the wounds of war . In the meantime stores of food will be exhausted ; seed will ...

H Williams Pint State Bank , Allegan , Michigan MICHIGANS average yield of potatoes for a ten-year period has been 97 bushels per acre ; in 1915 it was 65 bushels ; in 1916 , 38 bushels per acre . Michigan s aver irom twenty-five to thirty bushels per acre There are 300 , 000 acres of rye ia Michigan . An increase of fifteen bushels per acre wouM age yield of beans for a ten-year period is 11 . 6 bushels per acre ; m IJ » 5 , 8 . 3 ; in 1916 , 6 . 5 bushels per acre . It would be interesting , if we had the necessary information to show the causes of such losses . It is a custom of time out of mind to lay the low yields to Providence on account of weather conditions . It is perfectly safe to do this , because there seems to be no one who is willing to defend the Almighty for His weather distribution , and the grower and the consumer get a certain amount of relief in finding a place to attach blame ; but the system of th...
