T. Scott, chairman of the State AAA committee, with headquarters at State College. 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 servation Program." 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. . ? : Pork Canned, cured and frozen pork is the largest single food item listed by the Government in its lease- lend deliveries to the United Nations, nearly a billion pounds being sent from April through August. 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.
