NO. 23 IN A SERIES ON FLUE-CURED TOBACCO Save this page for future reference TOBACCO soils, their conservation and management, must be given proper attention in the production program if high yields and good quality of tobacco are maintained. The most desirable tobacco land has a sandy-loam topsoil, 7 to 10 inches deep, with a well-drained subsoil, and its value usually tends to be in proportion to the amount of topsoil present. Much tobacco land has been severely eroded, resulting in shallow or galled areas over many tobacco fields. This is particularly true in the middle and old belts of the Flue-cured areas. While lost topsoil cannot be easily replaced, Federal and State Agricultural Experiment Station research has discovered methods which enable tobacco farmers to reduce these losses and to conserve this good earth for future generations. Take Care of Topsoil to Conserve Tobacco Land H»il sj ill! • ( An aerial view of tobacco rows ar« ranged according to the "itring method". It ...

4 New Safety Device for Tractors A new safety device which automatically stops a tractor motor if the operators falls is being placed on the Midwest market this July by the Fleischer-Schmid Corporation, Columbus, Neb. Called the Flash-O-Tractor Safety Stop, it consists of a twoswivel control unit, attached to the dashboard and connected to the ignition wires, and a metal plug which inserts into the unit to complete the circuit. The plug is attached to the driver's belt by a cord. If he slips or falls off the tractor, the plug is pulled out of the ignition unit and the engine stops immediately. This prevents injury or death by halting deadly pull-type machinery before it can run over the fallen driver. The Flash-O-Tractor Safety Stop is the only safety ignition stop made. It retails for only $3.95. Initial distribution is through farm equipment, hardware, and auto equipment stores throughout the United States and Canada.

6 Sen. Robertson Says Exports Essential To Farm Profits Senator A. Willis Robertson (D.) of Virginia set forth the simple facts of foreign trade for a group of tobacco farmers at Halifax County Farm Bureau's picnic and Brunswick stew in South Boston, Va., last week. The Virginia Senator recalled a discussion of America's foreign aid program with a group of reporters. One of them had asked him if he didn't want the British and others to get Virginia tobacco. "I promptly replied," said Mr. Robertson, "that, of course, I wanted them to get it but on the basis of paying for it and in order that they might earn dollars with which to buy our tobacco we should lower our tariffs and let the British sell more of their goods to us." "I am sure," he said, "that the tobacco growers and other farmers of Halifax agree with me that we need a soundly based program of international trade which will permit us to dispose of our agricultural surpluses on a fair exchange basis." They would not, he thoug...

NO. 24 IN A SERIES ON FLUE-CURED TOBACCO Save this page for future reference TOBACCO, more than many crops, requires a wellbalanced soil to produce a successful yield. One of the important steps toward growing Flue-cured tobacco of high yield and quality is an accurate soil test. Forewarned with the knowledge of what soil elements are deficient, the grower can apply the lime or fertilizer needed to create a good tobacco soil. In addition, testing soil often cuts out wasteful use of fertilizer and avoids over-liming by indicating the amounts of the elements needed. A scientific soil test can be obtained without any charge other than postage by sending soil samples to the State Soil Testing Division. Accurate Soil Testing Shows Way to Better Tobacco wm - Technicians use a flame-photometer in determining the mineral content of soil samples. The usefulness of expert soil testing in deter- ✓ mining lime and fertilizer recommendations for Flue-cured tobacco is being recognized by more and...

4 ISSUES Price Supports The objectives of any farm program should be to enable farmers to earn and get the highest possible net income on their operations. On this there can be no disagreement. Many factors play an important part in reaching this objective. Prices received, quantity produced and sold and costs of production all play an important part. Farmers should concern themselves with all of these and work to obtain the combination which will gain the highest possible net income. One of the most controversial features concerning farm programs is the matter of price supports. Some favor high rigid supports, some would relate the level of support to the supply of commodity, while others are opposed to any support. If we are to develop a permanent program for the best long-range interests of farmers we must first eliminate the glaring weaknesses and abuses in present program. Then we must compromise our differences in viewpoints and unite solidly behind whatever plans we can agree...

Hubbard, executive secretary of the Virginia Farm Bureau Federation presented testimony in Bristol, Virginia, recently, to the House Committee on Agriculture designed to clarify the Farm Bureau's stand on current problems. The Committee has set out to visit the grass roots of the country and to discover the farmers' view on price support through 2 series of hearings. Hubbard told the Committee that Farm Bureau is not opposed to price supports and that they have their place with certain commodities. Hubbard, who was representing the Farm Bureau's members, told the Committee, "Our basic difficulty today is in the price field." This stems from the fact that our capacity to produce has outrun the market. We produce more food than can be consumed in the United States alone. By cutting the production of one type of crop, we are not sol...
