TOBACCO does best on clean soil— meaning soil that is not infested with nematodes, insects, and other forms of life injurious to tobacco. In the past few years, soil fumigants have been brought to public attention and discussed as a means of assuring cleaner soil. As with many other things, there are both advantages and disadvantages in the use of soil fumigants.

NO. 31 IN A SERIES ON FLUE-CURED TOBACCO Save this page for future reference. TOBACCO production suffers when there is a lack of moisture. This condition seriously reduces both yield and quality. For that reason, many Flue-cured growers are taking a great interest in field irrigation. Information on this phase of tobacco production is still not complete, but Federal and State Agricultural Experiment Stations have learned many facts about field irrigation that may prove of value to the Fluecured tobacco grower. Irrigation Benefits Flue-cured Tobacco The grower should regard irrigation as insurance against drouth, and as an additional management practice that will aid in the production of high-quality tobacco. Experiments show that irrigation produces better than average per-acre value. The aim of irrigation is not record yields. Such large increases may sacrifice quality. SOME OF THE BENEFITS If conditions on the individual grower's farm make irrigation advisable, there are several b...

On January 6-7, 1953, Farm Bureau leaders from the Richmond and Roanoke areas met with C&P officials to discuss the zone mileage system. The Farm Bureau leaders expressed the opinion that the zone mileage system placed unrealistically heavy rate burdens on rural subscribers and asked that they be removed. The leaders professed their willingness to pay a fair share of any necessary rate increase but failed to see the practicability of...

NO. 32 IN A SERIES ON FLUE-CURED TOBACCO Save this page for future reference TOBACCO growers today find that knowledge in different branches of science can be very useful in successful Flue-cured production. A familiarity with pesticides, for example, is valuable to the grower who plans to protect plants against insects and disease. Since the number of effective insecticides and fungicides on the market has increased greatly within the last few years, the grower may be unsure of what is best suited to his own farm. Federal and State Agricultural Experiment Stations can provide reliable information on this complex subject. Chemicals Can Protect Flue-cured Tobacco- One of the rewards of agricultural research has been the steady advance in the development of insecticides and fungicides. Insects and disease are old enemies of Flue-cured tobacco, but each year, greater progress is made in eliminating the damage they do.

May, 1954 Telephone Rate Boost Fight (From front page) the league's utilities committee, said after the committee's meeting that the estimate would be obtained and sent to the "interested localities" immediately. The final decision whether to intercede will be made shortly. The telephone company filed a requests for increased rates early in May. The new schedule would add 50 cents a month to most residential telephone bills and would increase most business telephone bills from about 75 cents to as much as a month. The request, however, asked for the abolition of zone mileage changes, which will mean a reduction of from 50 cents to $1.50 less for a majority of rural subscribers. In asking the Corporation Commission to approve the new schedule, the company said the additional revenue—s4,ooo,ooo a year in gross revenue, or a net of $1,820,000 — was "the minimum amount necessary to restore the company's earnings to a reasonable level."
