NO. 33 IN A SERIES ON FLUE-CURED TOBACCO Save this page for future reference. TOBACCO harvesting has a heavy labor requirement, for most of the work is done by hand. Labor costs are a big concern to the Flue-cured grower, even though he plans intelligently and makes full use ofslabor-saving devices as they become available. It is very important that the grower should not, because of the labor situation, adopt penny-wise shortcuts that will nullify a lot of expense and hard.work that have gone into the making of his crop up to the time of harvest —and which may result in inferior quality and lower return. Federal and State Agricultural Experiment Stations can provide practical and valuable information on the most efficient use of established methods of harvesting. Harvest at Full Maturity for Better Flue-Cured Quality The trend on the tobacco market today is toward ripe tobacco, which is apt to show an orange tinge after curing. Immature tobacco tends to cure to a greenish color. Irr...

4 Farm Program As Proposed To Congress Explained By Benson The farm program submitted to Congress recently by President Eisenhower requires only a minimum amount of new legislation and is designed to maintain agricultural income at high levels. This plan, product of the most comprehensive study of the American farm problem in all history, embodies these major recommendations : 1. That the bipartisan Farm Acts of 1948 and 1949 become effective as now scheduled with the 1955 crops. 2. That not to exceed $2.5 billion worth of surpluses acquired by the Government under the present program be withdrawn from the market and placed in a special reserve stockpile. 3. That Commodity Credit Corporation's borrowing authority be Increased by $1.75 billion —from $6.7' billion to $8.5 billion—to permit continuation of price support operations on basic commodities at 90 per cent of parity through 1954, as existing legislation requii'es. In urging that flexible price supports become operative on bas...

June, 1954 Variable Supports Mean High Farm Income - - - IAA Leader Net farm income would be higher in the long run under a variable price support system for farm products than under a high, rigid price support system. This statement was made last week by President Charles B. Shuman. of the Illinois Agricultural Association. He spoke at an annual spring conference of nearly 1,000 Farm Bureau leaders from all sections of Illinois. "Farm prices are not really made in Washington," Mr. Shuman said. "Prices for farm products are set when consumers buy these products. How much of the commodity is available and how much consumers are willing to pay for it are the final factors in determining what the price will be." Uder the present high, rigid price supports for basic crops, huge amounts of farm products have been put into storage by the government, the IAA president said. "This government policy of putting farm products into storage just delays letting the laws of supply and demand opera...

* 6 Sen. Schoeppel Urges Passage Of Trade Bill Before Harvest Senator Andrew F. Schoeppel (R.) of Kansas has called upon Congress to "close ranks" take "concerted action to -expand our export markets for farm products." The Kansas legislator, testifying before the House Agriculture Committee in support of his bill (S. 2475), which would authorize a multimillion-dollar foreign trade program, said that "in the last year our agricultural situation has worsened and the need to expand exports has increased." The bill in question, which was sponsored by Mr. Schoeppel, passed the Senate last July 6 without a dissenting vote. Similar legislation is now pending in the House. It would provide for the sale of up to $1.5 billion worth of surplus U. S. farm commodities to friendly nations for local currencies instead of hitherto required dollars. Money thus generated would be used as a revolving fund to expand and strengthen the free world economy. Mr. Schoeppel said that his bill is tailored to...

June, 1954 Grain Storage, Export Market Topics at Conferences Here The way for the United States to gain more and larger foreign markets is to producr for them, Dr. Paul Quintus of, the Foreign Agricultural Service, USDA, told a Grain Marketing Conference group in Richmond last month. Dr. Quintus, head of the Fats and Oils Division, said farmers in ihis country now are "just producing and what's left over is generally exported. Maintaining and developing foreign markets is a matte.r of quality and price," he stated. Speaking after lunch tc the all day conference group, Dr. Quintus used soybeans and wheat as typical examples of what is happening to our foreign markets. He said that a surplus supply of cottonseed oil turned many foreign buyers to soybean oil, which accounts for the shortage and backlog of demand for soybeans, despite the fact that Manchuria's soybeans are cleaner and better than ours according to European standards. Canada's wheat likewise, he said, is more desirable ...

AU Editorial Matter May Be Reprinted Vol. 15, No. 7 VT&T Rate Hearings No Increase, End of Zones Asks By VFBF M. A. Hubbard, executive secretary of the VFBF, told the State Corporation Commission, holding hearings on a requested rate increase by the Virginia Telephone & Telegraph Co., that "it'will be difficult to justify . . . any increase in telephone rates at this time." He also asked that "the zone mileage charges now in effect be removed." Hubbard, representing the Farm Bureau and the Agriculture Conference Board, told the Commission that "The cost-price squeeze that we read so much about in the newspapers is not an imaginary thing by any means"; that today there is a nine point decline in the income index of farmers over the past few years. Considering this, he said, farmers may come to think of a telephone as a luxury which they can do without, if rates are raised to put reach. Hubbard stated that the VFBF is not in a position to question on technical ...

NO. 34 IN A SERIES ON FLUE-CURED TOBACCO Save this page for future reference 1 obacro often goes into th« curing barn with a high potential quality. Make sure through rareinl attention to ruling that part oi this potential ia not lout. «Vv?> *'i T • * ' 1 *' ~ \ Flue-cured growers know that a good yellow color in cured tobacco leaf is more attractive to buyers than off-shades of a greenish or reddish cast. While good color, in itself, does not contribute a great deal to leaf quality, it is an indication of quality and the fact that proper attention has been paid to the details of curing. Many lac tors influence the degree of yellowing, and it will pay the grower to take them into consideration at curing time. Yellowing results from the loss of chlorophyll, or green coloring. In addition to drying, four major changes take place when tobacco is cured: (1) starch is converted to sugar; (2) the chlorophyll is destroyed; (3) the protein and other nitrogen compounds are simplif...

July, 1954 VFBF Begins Study Of Water Use Problems In Virginia ~ M. A. Hubbard, representative of the Virginia Farm Bureau Federation, and Jack Daniels, a state representative from Charlotte county, who represented the Governor of Virginia, have returned from an American Farm Bureau conference on the problems of land-water use in the country. Nearly 100 representatives from 34 states participated in the twoday conference aud enthusiastically praised recognition by AFBF of the myriad problems in this field —problems which are rapidly becoming apparent and in some instances critical, throughout the entire nation. Major interest centered around discussion of the need for legislation, in the majority of states, to establish the right of individuals to use, and to continue to use, water, and the procedures to be followed in the enactment of such laws in each state. The program followed a strictly informal pattern. No resolutions were developed, but there was complete agrement among the p...

6 '55 Wheat Program Calls For Acreage Cuts To 55 Million And 'Cross Compliance' Plan Secretary of Agriculture Ezra Taft Benson, in announcing USDA's 1955 wheat program last week, told the nation's farmers that more government controls on farm production and marketing are absolutely necessary in view of the approximately two years' supply of wheat that is expected to be on hand when this year's crop is har« vested. He announced the following preliminary steps in the administration of the 1955 wheat program together with cross - compliance provisions intended to lessen the impact of acreage shifts to other crops not eligible for price supports : 1. Proclaimed a national marketing quota for the 1955 wheat crop, in accordance with legislative provisions. 2. Announced a national wheat acreage allotment of 55 million acres for 1955—the level specified In the controlling legislation under conditions of excessive supply. 3. Set July 23 as the date for a national referendum among wheat growe...
