Farmers who are looking for a
new "cash" crop might try sweet po
tatoes, says H. R. Niswonger, Exten
sion horticulturist of N. C. State Col
lege. He says tnat North Carolina
yams are gaining in popularity on
The varieties of sweet potatoes in
biggest demand are the Porto Kicos,"
either the N. C. Strain 1 or the Louis
iana strain. Other varieties, such as
the Nancy Hall and the Jersey type,
have limited demand on some mar
Niswonger says the best type of
soil for growing sweet potatoes is
sandy or sandy loam. "Heavy soils
and dark soils?especially rich gar
den soils and places where manure
has been used heavily?produce poor
quality potatoes," the horticulturist
advised. "Also, soils where legumes
have been turned under have a ten
dency to produce oversize, discolored
and cracked potatoes. Such land
should be planted to corn or cotton
for a year or two, and the nitrogen
in the fertilizer reduced."
It is very important to use seed
that are free from disease, Niswon
ger declared. It is always best to
use certified seed, or certified slips
that have been produced preferably
by a grower who has been practic
ing hill seed selection. Only medium
sized seed should be bedded. The
Extension specialist says information
about the source of certified seed or
certified sprouts can be obtained
from county farm agents, or by writ
ing direct to the N C. Crop Improve
ment Association, N. C. State Col
Other recommendations by the
horticulturist include: Treat the Seed
before bedding. It requires five to
six bushels of seed to set one acre.
Use plants from vine cuttings.
