8 Farm Bureau In Action: Repeal Of Potato Ceilings Added $5 Million To Va. The fight on white potato ceil-, ings costs several hundreds of dol-' lars but the repeal of those ceilings put an estimated additional $5,000,000 in the pockets of Virginia potato farmers, the annual report of the Association of Virginia Potato and Vegetable Growers, Inc., pointed out this month. The organization which was set up by and is composed of Farm Bureau members from five potato and vegetable counties in Virginia issued its annual report through June 30, 1952. W. F.

JOSEPHINE STROTHER c HEAD SERIALS SECTION VIRGINIA STATE LIBRARY RICHMOND, VA. Vol. 14, No. 3 'I Believe In Price Supports', Says Benson Quack Medicine Is No Cure Considerable uneasiness has lately developed on the farm front as a result of declining farm prices. This feeling has been considerably aggravated by statements from various and sundry politicians designed to mislead farmers into thinking that the whole farm program will shortly be scrapped and farmers themselves "thrown to the wolves." Farmers should look with a jaundiced eye upon those who try to reap political rewards from their attempts to prescribe quack medicine for the disease of declining farm prices. The truth of the matter is that our present farm program is the result of bipartisan action and both political parties have a deep interest in the continuing welfare of agriculture. We have many thousands from both political parties as members of the Farm Bureau. They are all equally interested in a sound progressive ...

TOBACCO production owes a great deal to the men in research laboratories for advances in quality and yield.

The varieties recommended by Experiment Stations offer the farmer his best chance for a successful crop — for they have been tested and proved satisfactory. Many Fluecured tobacco growers have not taken full advantage of this work — mainly because they are not sufficiently acquainted with the important results that h...

6 Farmers-Truckers Haye Problems By W. F. McCaleb, Jr. Ex. Sec., Va. Potato-Vegetable Growers Assoc. The recent decision of the U. S. Supreme Court, upholding the authority of the Interstate Commerce Commission to restrict trip leasing of motor trucks, is bad news for agriculture. The ICC, for some time has attempted, as is the custom with most government bureaus, to extend its jurisdiction over all motor truck transportation. Because of the exemption writen in the basic law by Congress for trucks hauling agricultural commodities, it has been possible for truckers serving agriculture to stay away from the rigid rate control, and other burdensome regulations, of the ICC. One reason that agriculture has been served as well by truckers as it has, is that in many instances truckers have been able to lease their vehicles for one return trip to a carrier. This means that, if a truck load of cabbage is hauled from Florida to New York, the truck operator could, up to now, legally lease his ...

MARCH, 1953 Benson's Speech {Continued from page 1) mented, "We must seek this goal in ways that minimize governmental interference in the farmers' affairs, that permit desirable shifts in production, and that encourage farmers themselves to use initiative in meeting changing economic conditions." "We propose to build farm programs that are basic and sound —the type of programs with which farmers in a free economy can so manage their farms and market their products that they will have a minimum need for price supports. That is the practical way to achieve 100 per cent of parity in prices and incomes for farmers," Benson said. Benson called on farmers for their advice in developing a sound and workable program saying, "In considering our problems, competent men and women in agriculture are our advisors. I believe in using advisory groups." "What do you and other farmers and industry leaders want your Department of Agriculture to do? How can we serve you and all citizens? We are at yo...

NO. 19 IN A SERIES ON FLUE-CURED TOBACCO Save this page for future reference TOBACCO field cultivation in the Flue-cured area has an importance not always fully realized by the grower. Actually, cultivation practices have a great influence on the success or failure of the crop. Correct cultivation methods help prevent erosion, help protect the growing plants, and contribute to the development of larger, healthier plants. Federal and State Experiment Stations have conducted tests and studies over a period of years to determine the most efficient and beneficial cultivation methods. The results can be of great value to farmers of the Flue-cured area. Good Field Cultivation jpf Promotes Tobacco Growth Field of tobacco being cultivated with harrow and mule (the old method, but still being used by many). There are many definite benefits to be gained by paying close attention to proper field cultivation. Chief among these benefits is the control of weeds and grasses. Weeds and grasses rob ...

4 Tennessee Friends The Tennesseans were on their way to Washington to talk with their Congressmen about the agricultural situation. On their way they stopped long enough to meet a few Virginia farmers, talk over problems, visit a few historical places, and enjoy a meal. The Virginians were in town to attend a beef cattle hearing here and then move on to Washington for a tobacco discussion. American Tob j (From, front page) signed to encourage the production of better tobacco, to give public recognition to plant pathologists for work in tobacco and to build a closer working relationship and understanding among growers, warehousemen, farmer cooperatives, colleges of agriculture, and the farm press. Technical advice and suggestions were obtained through the courtesy of Federal and State Agricultural Experiment Stations. Typical subjects covered in the series are tobacco diseases, resistant tobacco varieties, insects, plant bed management, fertilization, and curing. Each article is sch...

APRIL, 1953 The Peanut Outlook In '53 By William V. Rawlingg 4 Executive Secretary, Association of Virginia Peanut & Hog Growers, Inc. The year 1953 will unquestion- - Bbiy present a variety of stern challenges to Virginia peanut producers. Let us consider several 0 f the imminent challenges and some thought to how we can best meet them. It is reasonably certain we will have approximately 9% less allotted acreage in 1953 than in 1952. This is due primarily to the fact CCC holds approximately 48,000 ions of Virginia type peanuts from the 1951 crop, the record yield per acre in 1952 and the fact most of the 1952 crop moved to market at about lc per lb. below support price. Obviously, if the market for farmers' stock peanuts returns only 83% of a fair return (parity) to producers as was the case in 1952, then it is rather difficult to convince Department officials there is real justification for more acreage. We have made every effort to have this cut restored but the foreg...
