NO. 15 IN A SERIES ON FLUE-CURED TOBACCO Save this page for reference TOBACCO plant beds respond handsomely to good management. Both rate of seeding and rate of fertilization exert a strong influence on quality and number of plants produced. To arrive at suitable rates, many factors should be taken into account: type of soil, location of bed, method of bed sterilization, and others. Federal and State Agricultural Experiment Stations are equipped by experience to help the Flue-cured grower interpret these factors successfully in terms of seeding and fertilization. Seeding and Fertilizing Tobacco Plant Beds ' V/' ' ' / ' . .' ' J While many things are getting easier, growing tobacco seems to be getting harder. There are several reasons why the Good Old Days were especially favorable to successful tobacco production. For one thing, there was plenty of virgin land to use for plant bed sites, 25 and 50 years ago. The grower could use a new site every year and avoid a great deal of troubl...

December, 1952 VFBF Annual Meeting with one hand stretched out to Washington or Richmond," Brinkley said. In his annual address H. G. Blalock said that farmers must rely on "fair prices instead of political magic." He charged the farmers present to stick together and build an organization for he said, "in all of the problems we face, we must never forget that Farm Bureau today provides the best structure for getting the job done, and our efforts on these problems will be most fruitful through Farm Bureau." On Tuesday George Passage, WRVA news editor, lashed out in his address at government suppression of news at the source and said that security is only an excuse for withholding news in many, many instances. Following Passage, Representative Burr P. Harrison gave what was labeled by many as one of his greatest addresses. He said that substantial reductions in Federal spending "depend largely on careful, effective paring away of the fat in military expenditures without damaging the m...

NO. 16 IN A SERIES ON FLUE-CURED TOBACCO Save this page for future reference. TOBACCO fertilization in the Flue-cured area is an important operation, for soils vary widely in their requirements. Since the application of too much fertilizer is as harmful as too little — it is difficult to establish rates and kinds of fertilizer for widespread use. Rates for average conditions can be determined, however, and should be used as a guide. Any grower whose soil is not close to average must work out rates which suit his own situation. The grower can learn the correct proportions by observing the performance of his soil and by taking advantage of the assistance of Agricultural Extension Workers. A wellbalanced fertilization program is a powerful influence for the production of high quality Flue-cured tobacco. Field Fertilization for Flue-Cured Tobacco Note rough growth with tip burn (potash deficiency) when nitrogen and potash are out of balance. 60-90-30 is equivalent to 1,000 pounds per ac...

"We will continue to stand up for our beliefs in true Americanism," the AFBF resolved, "unequivocably to support the Constitution of the United States and, individually and as a group, resist any continued drift toward socialism.

Tanuary, 1953 AFBF Resolutions (Continued from page 4) bility of individuals and governments for action to combat outbreaks. National Policies The voting delegates were strong in their support for AFBF's program of inflation control. "Most important of all," they said, "we must balance the federal budget and keep it balanced unless a serious threat of deflation develops." Increased production, sound credit policies, sound management of the national debt and increased private saving are recommended as other effective ways of combatting inflation. "Price and wage controls have no place in this coordinated attack on the inflation problem," the resolution continues. "As a matter of fact", they actually impede the control of inflation. "We will continue to exert every effort to bring about the earliest possible termination of these unsound controls," the delegates said. Federal Budget A balanced budget is also recommended in the resolution on federal expenditures. Here the convention vot...

IS State Resolutions Printed In Full (Continued from Page 1) of agriculture were called to the attention of the Commissioner, Parke C. Brinkley> or to Dr. Newman if dealing with VPI, and other were presented to the appropriate persons. The complete text of the resolution adopted follows. Control of Rabies and The Dog Law Rabies is a public health menace, and it is one hundred per cent fatal. No case has ever been cured. The Reservoir of rabies is in animals. The chief culprits are the dog and wildlife. However, if the reservoir can be removed from the dog, it will die out of itself in the wildlife. Anti-rabies vaccine is safe, cheap and effective. It is a means of destroying the reservoir of infection in the dog if used over a wide area. This cannot be considered a local or county problem but a state wide problem. We, therefore, recommend that the Virginia legislature enact such laws that will first, protect the citizen and, secondly, stop the economic loss sustained by o...

All Editorial Matter May be Reprinted Vol 14, No. 2 Farm Bureau Praised By State-National Leaders; Accomplishments Listed In Annual Drive Edition All Farmers Profit From FB Activities To answer the question, "What does my $10 do for me?" the following brief summary of Farm Bureau activities on the county, state and national level for 1952 has been provided. These subjects are treated fully in other articles in this issue. Savings For All The federal budget of 85.4 billion dollars for fiscal 1952-1953 represented a total tax liability averaging $2152.00 for each family of four people in the United States. With very strong Farm Bureau support a total of 8.3 billions in "fat" was finally trimmed from that budget. This effort reduced the tax liability for the average family of four from $2152 to $1938 —a reduction of $214 in the cost of government per family in one year! This action more than any other tended to stabilize and prevent further erosion in the value of the dollar and the sa...
