Heres Round-Up Of A.S.C.
Program Activities In '54
A round-up of activities coming
under the Macon County Agri

.Results of practices promoted
by the program:
For the year, 433 farms seeded
1,011 acres of permanent pastures.
A. S. C. paid $17,692 in assistance
to these farmers, the amount go
ing for lime, fertilizer, and seed.
Eighty-six farmers seeded 259
acres of perennial legumes and
grass with A. S. C. covering $3,030.
Forty-two farmers treated 445
acres of cropland with lime. A.
S. C. furnished $1,335 on this
practice for an average of $4.45
Sixteen farmers planted 15 acres
of trees. A. S. C. furnished $52.50
for this practice.
Ninety-five seeded a total of 342
acres. A. S. C. paid for $4,001 in
lime, fertilizer, and seed.
Sixteen farmers were approved
$762 for installing drain tile. On
these farms approximately 65
acres of steep land was retired
from cultivation because more
suitable land was brought into
cultivation by proper drainage.
Eighty-three farmers were ap

establishment of a vegetable cover

convention and elect a county
committee of three members and
two alternates. All elected county

and alternates are farmers.
