JANUARY, 1956 NO. 52 IN A SERIES ON FLUE-CURED TOBACCO Save this page for future reference 1 ' Fj JBf ■ wrawpras Irrigate Flue-cured beds Plenty of vigorous, healthy tobacco plants means all the difference in getting a good stand in the field —but the grower has little chance of producing such plants in dry, crusty soil. Lack of sufficient rainfall and the absencc of convenient Irrigating facilities result in Irregular stands and poorly developed plants that are anything but a guarantee of successful crops. Irrigation will not solve all plant bed problems, but it gives the grower a much better chance of producing strong, healthy plants. Moisture conditions should be considered In choosing locations for plant beds. If possible, the grower should pass up high ridges in favor of loamier, moister soils generally found in low spots near streams and ponds — provided these locations have sufficient surface drainage. Such beds will not become dry as often as beds located on higher land, but...

4 Sen. Robertson Says Declining Farm Income Is Big 1956 Issue The following statement was prepared by Senator A. Willis Robertson of Virginia, for this special issue of the News. "Dealing with the problem of declining farm prices and incomes will be one of the most difficult, and most important, tasks facing the Congress in 1956. "During the last seven years the portion of the consumer's dollar received by farmers has declined from 53 cents in 1945 to 39 cents in November 1955. Total cash receipts of farmers in 1955 were about 4 per cent less than in 1954 but because of higher production expenses, their net taxable income was estimated to be around 10 per cent less last year than in the preceding year and a further decline has been predicted for this year. "These facts are of concern not merely to those who depend directly on agriculture for their income but to our people as a whole because experience has shown that whenever the purchasing power of farmers is materially reduced for ...

JANUARY, 1956 From Rep. Harrison Ilcp. Burr Harrison, Seventh District. "It is a pleasure to extend greetings again to members of the Virginia Farm Bureau Federation through the annual special edition "During my service in the Congress, I have always welcomed expressions of viewpoint on legislative questions from the local Farm Bureaus, and from the state and national federations. It has been my observation that Farm Bureau members usually are among the best-informed farmers In a county. They have joined an active farm organization because they know the economics of farming have become tremendously complicated, and they need help in keeping abreast of developments which might affect their livelihood. "Because our country and its government are so large, the individual needs a strong voice if he is to be heard in the Washington cacophony. In the case of the farmer, an alert organization, such as a Farm Bureau, provides such a voice." WERFSTOMUAUTY ARCADIAN 9 American Nitrate of Soda ...

8 Ike's Farm Plan In Line; There Is No Quick Solution, VFB Says President Eisenhower's message to Congress recommending a farm program, very generally reflects the thinking of farmers themselves, and for this reason it should be acceptable to Congress on a bipartisan basis, M. A. Hubbard, exexutive secretary VFBF, said. Farmers have recognized for years that there isn't too much wrong with the price structure in agriculture that couldn't be readily corrected by removal of excess acreage from production, he went on. In recent years however, they have recognized that the crop by crop approach to the problem was not a solution. For this reason, more and more have agreed that the soil bank approach to the problem would come nearer to providing the answer to over production, Hubbard stated. FREE!

10 Farm Bureau Business Highlights Summarized By President Blalock The Virginia Farm Bureau Federation, the state's largest independent farm organization, showed a net gain in membership of 1,404 farm families for 1955, according to H. G. Blalock, president. At the end of fiscal 1954, the Federation showed a certified membership of 12,679 families. The present certification shows 14,082, Blalock reported. Summarizing other activities of the organization during 1955, Blalock said six new county units organized—Gloucester, Greene, Rappahannock, Richmond, Scott and Tazewell—to bring VFBF total to 71 county organizations in 73 counties.

G. Blalock, VFBF president. "This amendment is the result of a Farm Bureau resolution," Blalock added, "and it has had the continued support of both the VFBF and the American Farm Bureau Federation." "Now we have reason to believe that farmers will be relieved of this unfair tax in the near future," Blalock continued. "This legislation is long over-due. No olher industry I know of has been required to pay a like tax on their source of power for production operations. "President Eisenhower, in his farm address to Congress, recommended that farmers be excluded from this tax, and...

FEBRUARY, 1950 NO. 53 IN A SERIES ON FLUE-CURED TOBACCO Save this page for future reference TOBACCO growers in the Flue-cured area often seed about twice as much plant bed space as would be needed if most of the plants survived. Many growers consider this practice a safeguard against disease —but it is not a very good safeguard and, by itself, is not reliable. The most effective, most economical way to have plenty of healthy plants for setting is to give the bed proper care —especially in regard to prevention of Blue Mold. Federal and State Agricultural Experiment Stations can provide valuable information on this subject. Blue Mold is responsible for the loss of several million dollars annually to tobacco growers— but it doesn't have to be. Federal and State Agricultural Experiment Stations have proved that this plant bed disease can be controlled practically, effectively, and inexpensively. Seeding excess plant bed space is not the answer. There is no guarantee that all the space s...

4 Federal Subsidies - - Who Gets Them? How Big Are They? Who Benefits? By Ken McFall Information Director, Oklahoma Farm Bureau Subsidies in some form affect every citizen of America, every day of every year. The very mention of the word in likely to set off an argument In the halls of Congress. • Even an attempt to define the word can bring controversy. A man's definition of a subsidy probably depends on what he is trying to prove, or disprove. Since the discussion of farm price supports and other government farm programs usually brings up the subject of subsidies, this reporter has done a little digging into the subject, for the benefit of voting delegates who will attend the 14th annual meeting of the OFB this month. Delegates to the convention will doubtless want to know: How much money is spent on agriculture, and how does this figure compare to the amounts spent on other segments of the economy? The question that naturally follows is: How much do these other subsidies to labor...

6 Economists -Predict Continued High Farm Operation Costs The cash cost of farming is up, and likely to stay that way for a while. Agricultural economists at VPI point out that farmers spend four times as much annually for nonfarm goods and services as they did during 1935-39. Price increases account for only about half of these expenditures. With this increase in the cash cost of production, it is more important for farmers to improve their managerial ability. Because of the rapid capital turnover it is easier for farmers to "go broke" now than it was 10 years ago. Prices paid by farmers for production items declined slightly from July to September and were down about 1% from a year earlier. Lower feed prices have contributed materially to this decline. Feed In Record Supply Feed, an important production Item on many Virginia farms, is In record supply. The supply of the four feed grains (corn, barley, oats, and grain sorghum) is about 10% above the record supply of a year ago. The...

E. Flory, Manager, Virginia Farm Bureau Mutual Insurance Company. The reduction in Collision Rates was announced as being effective on January 16, and for the first time farmers in the State of Virginia are receiving a 20% discount, because of occupation. In making this announcement, Flory observed that prior to the organization of the Virginia Farm Bureau Mutual Insurance Company in 1950, that farmers had never received any consideration, because of occupation, in Automobile and Truck Insurance Rates. "Farmers in Virginia," said Flory, "had felt for some time that they were a preferred risk and should be considered as such in the rating of farmer owned and operated vehicles." This feeling had a ...
