NO. 28 IN A SERIES ON FLUE-CURED TOBACCO Save this page for future reference This two-row commercial fertilizer placement machine will place the fertilizer in two bands and list in one operation for two rows. There are also one-row machines on the market. Since soils differ in their productive capacity and in available mineral elements, an accurate soil test is almost a necessity in correctly determining the fertilizer needs of tobacco on individual soils. The State Agricultural Experiment Station and County Soil Testing Laboratories will test soil samples and make recommendations based on the tests to the grower. In addition to the actual analysis of the soil, recommendations are based on past crop performance and the estimated loss of plant nutrients through removal by various crops used in the rotation. The best Flue-cured crops are produced under a controlled nutrient level. Rather definite amounts of nitrogen, phosphorus, and potassium must be available to the plants for highes...

These tiny "worms, almost invisible to the naked eye, are common nuisances in most parts of the Flue-cured region. By weakening and destroying tobacco roots, they keep the plants from developing fully — causing poor quality and yield. Sometimes nematodeinfected plants die before harvest. Research on the problem is not yet complete, but Federal and State Agricultural Experiment Stations have uncovered enough facts about nematodes to make recommendations for effective control measures. Their findings can be valuable guides for the Flue-cured grower.

L jCetter cJo of arm bureau Women Dear Farm Bureau Women: Since my election as chairman of the Associated Farm Bureau Women of Virginia at the annual meeting in Richmond last November, I have been trying to find time to write this letter to you. Since it is impossible for me to write to each of you individually, I hope you will feel that this is a personal letter from me to you. First, let us get clear in our minds who are members of the Farm Bureau. According to our by-laws, the payment of dues by any member of a family, entitles the whole family to membership. This is a family membership. If your husband has paid his dues, you are automatically a member, or you may wish to join by paying dues yourself and he would be a member with you s This means that we have over one and a half million farm women in all 48 states and Puerto Rico who are members of this great farm family group. Let us review in our minds, the purpose of this farm organization: To improve the farmers' net income, ...
