The Cultivation bf ^ Gbrn—Facts from a Recent Investigation [Newspaper Article] — Banker Farmer — 1 July 1915
The Cultivation bf ^ Gbrn—Facts from a Recent Investigation MANY people suppose that we already know all that is to be known about the r j cultivation of corn . With almost virgin soils comparatively little cultivation was necessary , but as the soils became more foul , more compact and some what exhausted of organic matter and plant food , different methods not only of cultivation , but of preparing the seed bed must be practiced . We .. H ])^ j ] can no longer grow 80 bushels of corn per acre by plowing three or four inches deep , planting the corn one way and with two cultivations with the large shovels . The soil beneath that turned by the plow was naturally mellow and tertile and the roots found an abundance of food in the subsurface soil as well as in the surface . Now the roots must have undisputed possession of the plowed soil if we expect results . The first and most important object to be achieved by cultivation in this state is the killing of weeds . These deprive corn of...

A crop rotation may be practiced oa one field growing a different crop a year , or on a number of fields growing a different crop on each year . If a well planned rotation is carried out on the farm it will accomplish the following ends : 1 . It will keep the soil in a high state of productivity . 2 .

How a Southern Banker Brought Alfalfa to His Communitv [Newspaper Article] — Banker Farmer — 1 July 1915
How a Southern Banker Brought Alfalfa to His Communitv ABOUT twenty-five years ago W . J . Roddey , president oj tlie National Union Bank of By Ira B . Dunlap National Union Bank , Kock HIll ^ S . C . Kock Hill , bouth Carolina , took a trip through the West . He saw alfalfa growing . He was told that an acre of wellsodded alfalfa was worth a lot of money . He came back to South Carolina and offered to purchase for twenty-five farmers sufficient seed for each to plant one-half acre of alfalfa . Out of the twenty-five farmers there was only one who . continued experimenting with alfalfa—the others made a failure . In fact , the one who continued made very little success and we felt at that time that alfalfa in our section was a failure . This one farmer , however , kept on experimenting with it . Today we have in our section hundreds of acres of alfalfa . What we lacked in order to make alfalfa a success on the start was inoculation and lime . Now we have more alfalfa in our section ...
Money For Silos Without Interest—Other Banker-Farmer Work [Newspaper Article] — Banker Farmer — 1 July 1915
Money For Silos Without Interest—Other Banker-Farmer Work A SPLENDID example of the spirit that is animating the banker today is furnished by the First National Bank of Thief River Falls , Minnesota . It -will loan at least $ 15 , 000 to farmers for the construction of silos—and the loans will be made without interest . And if the farmers of that section prove sufficiently wide-awake and alert to the opportunity , the bank will not be averse to doubling its proposition , thereby standing ready to loan $ 30 , 000 , without asking one cent of interest . C . L . Hansen , president of the institution , has just made the offer in an advertisement . He hopes to cause by this means the erection of at least fifty silos , believing this would greatly assist in improving the farming of the section . The Thief River Falls NewsPress comments : There are no strings attached to this offer , except that the farmer borrowing the money must be worthy and must show the proper amount of enthusiasm and...
How New York State Hopes to Solve the Rural Credit Problem [Newspaper Article] — Banker Farmer — 1 July 1915
How New York State Hopes to Solve the Rural Credit Problem THE Land Bank system of the state of New York has been devised to liquify By John J . Dillon on its funds to finance their mortgages . It would take too lone to aerairmilatv funds or mobilize credits represented in the mortgages of homes and _ farms in the state . By this we mean that the mortgages are converted into negotiable bonds which may pass readily and safely from hand to hand without-loss of interest or depreciation in value . In addition to mobilizing the mortgage credit the system provides an inducement for small savings , and a safe and profitable form of investment for people of small means and frugal habits . It also provides ready money to finance mortgages on homes and farms at current rates of interest , and on long term contracts , with small annual payments to amortize or wipe out the mortgage at the end of the contract period . This system of mortgage credits has two separate forms of organization . First...
? Jr ?}» ? ? ? Demonstration is the Most Effective [Newspaper Article] — Banker Farmer — 1 July 1915
? Jr ?}» ? ? ? Demonstration is the Most Effective THE one great need now seems to be to get the crop grower and the business man to a common understanding and common ground . The great problem is to bring the crop grower to a consciousness of the value of the improved methods and of the help that the experiment stations can give him . Bulletins and farmers institutes have been the means heretofore employed , both good , but they have not been sufficient to do the work . The actual demonstration in the field , and mayhap in a neighbor s field , it has been concluded , is the more , if not only , effective way . The farm demonstration system is now being tried out . I have every faith in it . It seems to be the practical and sensible way . It has done marvelous things in our state . —Carson Hildreth , Chairman of Nebraska Agricultural Committee , Lincoln , Nebraska . ¦ M

Against the One-Crop System [Newspaper Article] — Banker Farmer — 1 July 1915
Against the One-Crop System ( Continued from page 12 ) tools in producing a crop of cotton alone is only 100 to 125 days . What is the farmer going to do the rest of the time ? Diversified agriculture and livestock make a 365 days job . Thrift and industry are greatly to be desired . I am unable to see what benefit can be derived from having long periods of idleness . What we . want is a system of farming by which we can introduce and use good business system on the farm and get the best results from a reasonable expenditure of time and labor . Fifth : Under the one-crop system of agriculture the return for labor comes but once in the year , whereas under a properly diversified system of agriculture the return comes in a number of times during the year . The eggs , butter , cheese , poultry , fruit , garden , hogs , cattle and grain , if made the product of one farm , give many opportunities for converting labor and the fertility of the soil into cash . With nothing to sell but cott...

Georgia Bankers are Alive [Newspaper Article] — Banker Farmer — 1 July 1915
Georgia Bankers are Alive THE Georgia bankers are wide awake and alive to the agricultural situation . I have not seen a body of bankers anywhere who took greater interest in agricultural development than they do , arid 1 listened for more than an hour to the report of their agricultural committee and -a discussion thereof with intense interest . They are doing things in Georgia . Corn , cattle and hogs are actually taking the place of cotton in constantly increasing measure , but there is so much to be done throughout the South that the splendid results already accomplished do not show up as they should . —W . B . Harrison , Secretary , Oklahoma Bankers Association . . . . . . . . ..

? ? ? "Uncle Henry ' s" Benediction By Henry Wallace [Newspaper Article] — Banker Farmer — 1 August 1915
? ? ? Uncle Henry s Benediction By Henry Wallace I have addressed a good many meetings in this and other countries , and I want to say that I have never addressed in my life any in which there was a finer spirit that you can feel . We have talked a good deal about ¦ production , about raising things . We have not yet taken up the more important part of its distribution . We have glimpses at the great idea back of it all and that is citizenship . We are realizing the truth of the Master , and you never get the full meaning of the scripture if you read it devotionally , or as a pure religious matter . But the sayings of Jesus have a worldwide meaning . Except ye be converted and become as little children , ye cannot enter the Kingdom of Heaven . It is hardly worth while preaching to seasoned saints , for they are apt to be idle words ; nor trying to teach seasoned farmers who know it all . The hope of this country is in the young people , for the great end of all farming and all banki...
