NO. 40 IN A SERIES ON FLUE-CURED TOBACCO Save this page for future reference TOBACCO plant bed management is often the key to a good crop. If Flue-cured growers can make their plant beds produce vigorous, healthy plants in quantity, they are well on the way to a successful harvest. Unfortunately, the reverse is also true. If plant beds are not prepared and cared for properly, and diseased plants of poor quality are produced, it is difficult to overcome^this handicap in the field. Practical information on effective methods of plant bed management is made available through Federal and State Agricultural Experiment Stations. Well Kept, Disease-free Beds Produce Finer Flue-Cured Tobacco W Msfc-.- ■ Healthy, vigorous plants such as this come from sound plant bed management. Growers who prepared tobacco plant beds adequately in the fall have little preliminary labor in connection with spring sowing, aside from working the soil of the plant bed area. For growers who did not make fall prepa...

This simple truth seems to have escaped the notice of those who are letting their enthusiasm for good roads stand in the way of their better judgment as to how they should be paid for. People with a genuine concern for better roads should be the first to insist on a program that will guarantee the greatest mileage of good roads for the money available. Unfortunately the Eisenhower-Clay proposal does not fall into this classification. The Clay Committee proposes that the Federal Gove...

NO. 41 IN A SERIES ON FLUE-CURED TOBACCO Save this page for future reference TOBACCO is restricted in development when any one of several growth factors is not present in the right amount. The most important growth factors within human control are nutrients and water. A lack of balance in nutrients can be corrected by proper fertilization, which is a matter of intelligence and selection. Making up for deficient or improperly distributed rainfall by irrigation is not as easily accomplished. To be most profitable, tobacco irrigation requires a long-range, wellplanned program and a sizeable capital outlay. A great deal of experimental work is in progress to determine the conditions under which irrigation will be beneficial and the best way to apply the water. Federal and State Agricultural Experiment Stations are valuable sources of practical information on the problems of making irrigation successful. Proceed with Caution Over the past four years, the rainfall in many sections of the ...

Vol. 16, No. 3 FB At V About 46 persons, representing 40 counties in Virginia attended the annual County Farm Bureau President's Conference in Richmond last month. The group discussed Farm Bureau problems, divided itself into committees and made recommendations toward the solution of these problems. The committees considered and made recommendations to ways to improve work on the subjects of policy execution, county Farm Bureau programs, Farm Bureau record keeping, policy development, publicity, and Farm Bureau committees. Before adjourning, the presidents went on record as opposing the Eisenhower plan for construction of $25 billion in Federal highways. The group referred to a Farm Bureau which requests that the two cents per gallon Federal tax on gasoline be rescinded and reimposed by the states.

NO. 42 IN A SERIES ON FLUE-CURED TOBACCO Save this page for future reference Soil Preparation, Proper Spacing are factors in Good Flue-Cured Stands A supply of healthy, vigorous plants will always be the main key to successful transplanting, but there are many practices the grower needs to follow to make reasonably sure that plants will stay healthy after they leave the bed. Sound plants are highly important, but they, alone, are not enough. SOIL PREPARATION The way soil is prepared before the plants are set is as important as field cultivation afterward—although the value of field cultivation should not be minimized. The tilth of the soil has a strong influence on qualities that make for desirable cigarette tobacco. For heavy soils, it's a good idea to plow in the fall, especially if there is sod to turn under. The turned-under sod has time to decay, and the winter freezing and later thawing help to soften up the soil. However, if land is hilly, the grower should check to see wheth...
