NO. 36 IN A SERIES ON FLUE-CURED TOBACCO Save this page for future reference TOBACCO production has no more important phase than the successful growth of seedlings in the plant bed. If the grower fails here, and does not produce sturdy, healthy plants, there is little likelihood that the final result will be satisfactory. But if ample supplies of good, vigorous plants are available early in the season, prospects for a successful harvest are good. Federal and State Agricultural Experiment Stations can provide Flue-cured growers with valuable information on size, location, and preparation of tobacco plant beds. Permanent plant beds give the grower greater control-over conditions harmful to young tobacco plants. An adequate water supply, watering equipment, and proper windbreaks can be provided more effectively fpr permanent sites than for temporary ones. However, the appearance of diseases, and the scarcity of suitable woodland have forced some growers to temporary field sites for pla...

"One of these principles is that farmers must share in the adjustment of supplies to demand in return for price supports," he explained. "The Agricultural Act of 1949, which the new Act amends, Included this principle but it never went fully into effect due to postponing amendments. "The new bill provides for price supports at 90 per cent of parity for corn, wheat, cotton, rice, and peanuts provided supplies are kept substantially in line with demand. It also provides that price supports can be lower if supplies are excessive. "Due to the provision of the new Act providing that sizeable portions of present surpluses will be set aside and not used in calculating the level of price supports, the effect of pr...

He suggested that the problems in forestry connervation be widely publicized and said much success has been derived from Governor Tuck's corn war, Governor Battle's pasture program, and "We believe that Governor Stanley would enthusiastically lend his support to a similar move to enhance the value of Virginia's forestry resources." Hubbard told the committee that information indicates that the Doyle Log rule is generally used in Virginia in estimating the board foot content of saw logs.
