FEBRUARY, 1956 Shuman Outlines Four Point Program To Aid Agriculture Charles B. Shuman, president of the American Farm Bureau Federation, told the Senate Committee on Agriculture and Forestry recently that "the core of the farm problem as it exists in 1956 is simply that our total productive capacity currently exceeds effective demand." To remedy this situation, the head of the nation's largest farm organization called for (1) expansion of markets; (2) orderly disposal of government owned farm commodities; (3) a surplus reduction and soil bank plan; and (4) continuation of variable price supports. Mr. Shuman was accompanied to the Senate Committee hearing by AFBF Vice President Walter L. Randolph and the members of the AFBF Board of Directors, who were in session in Washington. In the field of market expansion, the Farm Bureau president called for "well coordinated, aggressive, industry-wide promotional programs financed on a voluntary basis." He said the executive branch of the fed...

march, 1956 NO. 54 IN A SERIES ON FLUE-CURED TOBACCO Save this page for future reference TOBACCO can be produced much more successfully when careful attention is paid to the plant's nutrient requirements. The rate of fertilization has a definite relation to yield, quality, and profit. Heavy applications of fertilizer will not necessarily improve the yield, and usually lower the quality—but rates that are too low are sure to lower both yield and quality. The important thing is to supply, as nearly; as possible, the exact amounts of fertilizer required for proper development. Federal and State Agricultural Experiment Stations can provide practical information on this subject. Fertilize According to Tobacco's Needs Even within a small geographical area, soils can differ greatly in available mineral content and productive capacity. For this reason, any tobacco fertilization program should be based upon accurate, individual soil tests. Soil Testing Laboratories are equipped for testing s...

Smith, Princess Anne county, Mrs. Harry Hevener, state woman's chairman, and Mrs. W. H. Burt, first district women's chairman, discuss women's activities for this year. Public Relations—Key To Urban-Farm Understanding Farmers have no direct pipeline to the Federal Treasury, nor are they guaranteed a good income. Yet many city people think that exactly the opposite is true, believing that they have to pay the food bill twice: once as taxes and once at the grocery store. Such misconceptions show graphically that agriculture's public relations aren't all they should be, according to Frank M. Atchley of New York, agricultural consultant to Grocery Manufacturers of America. Writing in the forthcoming Tenth Anniversary issue of the "Public Relations Journal," Mr. Atchley says that poor dissemination of agriculture's vital story lies behind t...

10 VFBF Loses Grain Bill 43-51 In Assembly By a vote of 43 to 51 the uniform grain inspection bill, which would have allowed the State Department of Agriculture to Inspect grain in the City of Norfolk as it does everywhere else in the state, was killed by the House of Delegates two days before the Virginia General Assembly adjourned. The bill, Senate Bill 98, patroned by Senator Mills Godwin of Suffolk, was voted out of the Senate Agriculture Committee by a vote of 9-1, it then passed the Senate by a vote of 24-14. It was reported out of the House Agriculture Committee by voice vote with one amendment which was designed to insure that the State Department of Agriculture would have ample time to make preparations for taking the inspection service over in Norfolk, without interrupting the normal operation of the port. The inspection there is now carried on by the Norfolk Chamber of Commerce. Senator Godwin handled the proponents' case for the bill in both committee hearings. M. A. Hub...

MARCH. 1956 Farmer Trainee Emphasizes Man's Dependency On Soil (Editor's note—This is a report from Hung-Kung Chiu, one of the lice Young Farmer Trainees in Virginia. Hung-Kurtg Chiu is from Formosa and, is living with Mr. and Mrs. D. J. Campbell, Abington in Washington County.) "To become intimate with the soil and to grub out the treasures from the soil", an old Chinese proverb, points out that we live with and for the soil. It means the soil can grow foods for us and we eat it to keep life. When we die. our flesh will be changed to so ii, thus completing a cycle. Therefore the soil and human beings have an important relation. China is an agricultural country. She is a great land, but all of the land has not yet been cultivated. I have often thought that if our country were to be strong and rich, we must start by reforming our agriculture, using the soil profitably and increasing its production. My home is a large home. My family has been engaged in agriculture as its principal bu...

Vol. 17, No. 4 President Suggests Compi .ase Bill; Includes Soil Bank Proposal President Eisenhower, last Monday, vetoed the controversial omnibus farm bill. The bill was described by its proponents as a compromise between House-approved legislation carried over from 1955 and the Senate-drafted measure of recent weeks. Items in the bill which farmers found most objectionable include: (1) Fixed price supports for the basic commodities for 1956 at 90 per cent of parity. (2) The "double standard" for computing parity prices. (3) The Price Support Program for wheat and rice. (4) Mandatory support of noncommercial area corn and the mandatory increase in the support prices from 70 to 80 per cent of parity on oats, barley, rye, and grain sorghums.

It starts with good stands in the plant bed . . . where insect control, disease control, and other preventive measures help to form the sturdy plants that will have the best chance of survival in the field. Advance work must be done in the field, too, so that the soil will be in the proper condition for receiving the young plants. FIELD-SOIL PREPARATION The better the tilth of the soil in the field, the easier it is to produce tobacco with desirable characteristics for cigarettes. Many growers, if they have heavy soil, plow in the fall. The action of freezes and thaws during the winter months helps to crumble and mix the soil, thereby accomplishing part of the grower's job for him. The time lapse after fa...

4 TJour Stale Chairman Says . . By Mrs. Harry D. Hevener Spring On I do believe Spring has come at last! Here in the Shenandoah Valley, we are enjoying the bloom of early flowers that our Southern friends have had for several weeks. I am always glad that I am a farmer's wife, but particularly during this season of the year. There is a certain thrill about getting the ground ready for spring planting. The talk of amounts of lime and fei'tilizer, the kind of seed for hay, and the name varieties of oats, corn and barley, puts new life into "a person after the long winter months. Only those who truly love the farm and soil will get this thrill, but spring is a wonderful time. This month, I would like to pass on to our Virginia women some of the activities of the women of other states as reported in "Timely Topics." Some of them are suggested in our own workbook, others are new ideas. In either case, we can profit by them. From South Dakota: Follow up public information prospects by cont...

This month, Pedro Bastos of Bratil writes of his observations of and experiences on the farm of Fred Harris, Mineral.) The sun gives light to the whole earth, and every nation has its peculiar characteristics, its problems and imperfections, but also its virtues. I am a young man. I still am interested specifically in those foreign countries that can give me useful knowledge about different practices in agriculture that I need to better the production of my crops: rice, tomatoes, coffee and cows in Brazil. We have much to learn from other countries, and although customs and scenery differ, we, who populate all the countries, are all humans, created by the same God.
