TTJLY. 1956 NO. 58 IN A SERIES ON FLUE-CURED TOBACCO Save this page for future reference "fc bJI P^ iM Bfi wHraH«9 ■BH# J»K I Bf ; fIU 'KBS ggߣ§£ ■HHHHMH KS »*? HMHHHBpv*~ [ Scenes luch as this are becoming rarer, as automatic systems replace more and more of the wood-burning units which mutt be tended day and night. For many years, wood was the chief fuel used in curing Flue-cured tobacco. In recent times, however, the use of other fuels, including coal, bottled gas, and oil, has become quite common. Their use has come about principally because of the increased cost and scarcity of wood, and because less labor is required with newer fuels. Only about 15% of the tobacco is now being cured with wood. This fuel requires the most labor, since the wood must be cut and the curing unit must be refueled during the cure, but on some farms the supply of low-grade wood is plentiful. In those cases, the economy of using the available wood may be the deciding factor. Coal is being used to cure...

ATTGUST, 1956 NO. 59 IN A SERIES ON FLUE-CURED TOBACCO Save this page for future reference j^j^Sßip Nematodes damage tobacco by feeding upon the root system. Most forms of the eel-like parasite are invisible to the unaided eye, but the mature females of some forms can be seen. Of the many different kinds of nematodes in existence, Flue-cured tobacco is attacked by 3 types — the Root Knot, the meadow and the stunt. The abovcground symptoms produced by all 3 are appi oximately the same in the field — growth is retarded and the leaves develop a yellow cast. The leaves are also smaller and narrower than usual, and in extreme cases, the plants are severely stunted. In dry weather, wilting and firing take place. Underground damage caused by the 3 kinds of nematodes can be distinguished by the different effects they have on the root system. Roots affected by Root Knot become swollen and develop knots. Meadow and stunt nematodes do not produce knots. Meadow nematodes cause scab-like decay s...

4 jjour State Chairman Says By Mrs. Harry D. Hevener There is nothing like getting together with congenial Farm Bureau folks to make you know that Farm Bureau is just the best farm organization ever and that Farm Bureau people are wonderful. The Asheville meeting (Southern Farm Bureau Training School) was no exception—Southern hospitality was at its best. Even the weather cooperated, for everything was a lucious green with clear warm days and cool nights. From the time we went into Vespers Sunday night and heard Mrs. Chase, North Carolina state women's chairman, speak on "Home" until we sang "Bless Be the Tie that Binds" after lunch Wednesday, every minute was full of work, fellowship and the exchanging of ideas. One interesting feature was the backdrop for the assembly. I hope you can get the picture from this description. Starting at the bottom was half of a rising sun with a light behind it. Its rays extended out in a semi-circle. Each ray represented one of the states in the Sou...

6 States Surrendering Responsibilities To Federal Gov't. Termed 'Disturbing' M. A. Hubbard, executive secretary of the Virginia Farm Bureau Federation, told members of the Isle of Wight Farm Bureau recently that one of the most disturbing factors we face today is the increasing trend of states and localities to surrender their responsibilities and obligations to the central government. "There has never been a time in our nation's history when it was as important for farmers and others to get together to discuss local, state and national affairs," Hubbard said. "Only through such cooperation can we arrive at sound decisions on the direction in which we should go if this is to continue to be the kind of country which we want it to be." The spokesman for the state's largest farm organization said that unless the trend towards centralization of government is halted, within the next 15 years we are likely to see the 48 states converted into "48 administrative puppets of the federal gover...

6 Farm Income (Cont. from Page 2) * period of last year. Cash receipts in July alone were $2,200,000,000, it said. The department based its last half of the year estimates on the forecast that "continued growth in consumer income is likely, indicating that demand for farm products will be at a high level for the remainder of 1956." "Over-all economic activity, now at record level, will probably expand further in the third and fourth quarters of this year," the report said. "Foreign takings of American farm products are also running well ahead of last year. With favorable prospects for the rest of the year, exports for 1956 as a whole will probably reach a record volume." The department predicted that a drop in meat production this fall from a year earlier will end a five-year expansion. Pork will account for most of the decline because of the 8 per cent cut in last spring's pig crop, it stated. More cattle will be slaughtered but weights will average lighter and about the same beef ...
