Farmers Are Signing
1943 Practice Plans
Farmers in every county of North
Carolina now arc being given an op-1
portunity to sign farm practice plans
for 1943, stating whether or not they
intend to cooperate in the 1943 AAA
farm program, according to G. T.
Scott, chairman of the State AAA
committee, with headquarters at
Weekly reports already received
29,495 of a possible 196,745 eligible
farmers have signed practice plans
for the coming year. Of this number,
Scott said, 29,422 indicated their in
tention to take part in the 1943 AAA
farm program, and 73 indicated they
will not cooperate.
"Signing of these farm practicel
plans is not compulsory on the part'
of the farmer," Scott said. "By sign
ing a practice plan, the farmer mere
ly signifies his intention to cooper
ate in the program during the com
ing agricultural year ,and allotments
for special crops are determined for
his farm and forwarded to him. The
farmer also is informed of the max
imum payments he can earn for car
rying out approved production prac
tices next year. Since this is the time
for seeding winter legumes and
spreading soil building materials, it
is important that he sign his farm
plan as soon as possible. Farmers
who cooperate in the AAA program
can obtain seed and materials, such
as lime and superphosphate, on a
grant-of-aid basis, and costs will be
deducted from any payments due
them under the Agricultural Con
In an effort to conserve transpor
tation- facilities,?the AAA official
said, most of the signup work this
year is being carried on by contact
ing farmers when they are in coun
ty AAA offices or at meetings for
other reasons. He emphasized that
this signup concerns particularly
cooperation in the 1943 program.

Winter Hay, Grazing
Crops Needed in N.C.
Recent rains in the Coastal Plain
have destroyed the value ot a large
part of the hay that was stacked out
doors in Eastern Carolina. The dam
age to peanut and soybean hay has
been especially serious, reports E.
R. Collins, Extension agronomy lead
re to N. C. State College.
"Every effort should be made by
livestock farmers to supplement
their feed supplies with fall-seeded
crops for winter grazing and spring
hay," says Collins. "Fortunately,
there is still time to sow winter le
gumes and small grains to be grazed
in February and March, or to be
harvested for hay in the late spring."
The agronomist explained that the
restrictions placed on the use of fer
tilizers containing nitrogen applied
on small grains docs not apply where ,
the grain is not harvested. Where
farmers seed small grains for graz
ing. or in mixtures with legumes for
grazing, they will be able to obtain
2-12-6 and 2-8-10 fertilizers. Collins
says that all winter hay and grazing
crops should be top-dressed with ni
trogen February or early March.
One of the west winter hay mix
tures, according to the Extension
worker, is a combination of vetch
or Austrian peas and small grains.
He suggests the per acre seeding of
15 pounds of vetch or Austrian win
ter peas, 2 bushels of Fulgrain No. 3
or Fulghum oats, 1-2 bushel of Cara
| la or Redhart wheat, and 1-2 bush
el of Iredell barley if available. This
mixtuer should be planted as soon
as possible, and should be fertiliz
ed with 200 pounds per acre of 2-12-6
fertilizer at planting time.
Collins says t^iat 1 1-2 bushels of
Abruzzi rye. planted by November
15 and fertilized with 200 pounds of
2-12-6 at planting time, will furnish
grazing in February and March.
