NO. 45 IN A SERIES ON FLUE-CURED TOBACCO Save this page for future reference x4Br jgw* , *IF ? % Jp* r ~^. SPWOB; J « Harvest Tobacco Fully Ripe for an Easier, Better Cure When a grower harvests a fine looking crop of tobacco, follows proper curing procedures, and still doesn't get a top quality result, the reason may lie in the time of harvesting. Tobacco harvested before full maturity is likely to be slick and lacking in grain. Other difficulties arise —the leaf cures to a greenish color, and is deficient in both flavor and aroma. Such a crop is likely to disappoint the grower at the tobacco market —where the preference today is for the rich yellow color that comes from curing fully mature tobacco. Tobacco harvested at the right time cures more uniformly, too, with better texture, flavor, and aroma. The higher quality of such leaf, and consequently the higher market value, makes it worthwhile for the grower to consider degree of ripeness one of the most important factors in the ha...

NO. 46 IN A SERIES ON FLUE-CURED TOBACCO iSave this page for future reference TOBACCO can lose important qualities when curing conditions are not right. If the grower overlooks or neglects any one of the many factors involved in a good cure, the tobacco will be less attractive at the market. Spacing, ventilation, temperature, and type of heating system can all influence the quality of the cure, and the grower should employ the best practices for maximum profit from his crop. Federal and State Agricultural Experiment Stations have supplied the answers to many common curing problems, and their findings can be of valuable assistance to Flue-cured growers.

4 AFBF Requests Congress To Pass Trip Leasing Bill The American Farm Bureau Federation has called for approval of S. 898 —the trip leasing bill. The measure would amend the Interstate Commerce Act. It would limit the authority of the Interstate Commerce Commission to regulate the use by motor carriers (under leases, contracts or other arrangements) of motor vehicles not owned by them, in the furnishing of transportation of property. Matt Triggs, AFBF assistant legislative director, told a Senate Commerce Committee hearing that "if S. 898 is not approved by the Congress, those who oppose the practice of trip leasing will argue in the years ahead that the Congress had the matter before !t, that it failed to act, and that therefore it is the intention of Congress to permit the Commission to curtail or restrict trip leasing." Congressional action he said, is necessary because the ICC order as it stands represents an impractical and undesirable regulation. The endeavor of the amended reg...

6 AFBF Aids Dairy Industry When Needed It Most Appropriations For USD A Total $878,625,319 The House of Representatives last week passed and sent to the Senate a bill to appropriate $878,615,319 for the United States Department of Agriculture in fiscal 3956 (July 1, 1955 to June 30, 1956). As passed by the House the bill provides for many of the budget recommendations of the American Farm Bureau Federation. (See NEWS LETTER, March 14, page 43.) The House has now provided •n increase of $7,285,000 in funds for agriculture research over the amount provided for the current fiscal year.

Proper handling, storing, and grading are the factors that enable the grower to make the most of a good cure. REMOVING TOBACCO FROM THE BARN After curing is completed, the leaf should be allowed to absorb just enough moisture so that the tobacco can be taken from the barn with a minimum of breakage. The doors and ventilators should be opened when the curing is finished. The leaf will easily absorb moisture if the weather is damp, but if the weather is very dry, the tobacco can still be brought into "order" by wetting down the floor, t...

Statistics from the Virginia Rural Safety Council show a total of 557 accidental deaths in rural Virginia, an increase of 47 over 1953. Fires and explosions nosed to the top as cause of deaths, accounting for 137 of the total. Falls, 1953's leading cause, dropped to second place. But it wasn't a big drop— down only three.
