TREE PLANTING IS PROFITABLE; GET SEEDLINGS Amnions Diverts Eroded Field To Paying Trees Every acre of land has a best use, and in Madison County land owners have felt 3,283 acres were best suited to tree planting.

THURSDAY, JANUARY PREPARATION OF TOBACCO BEDS IS CITED BY AGENT An adequate supply of early tobacco plants is the best start a farmer can make for a good burley tobacco crop, says Harry G. Silver, County Extension Chairman. Al most every year a number of farm ers experience difficulty in treat ing and preparing their tobacco beds for seeding. The ground will either be too wet or too cold to be worked and gassed in preparation for seeding'. A large number of Madison County tobacco growers prepared their beds last fall usd the open Winter has anfWVrnumberk--'of others to got their beds plowed, the fertiliser worked in and ready for gasing. Early preparation of plant beds is a practice that should be followed by more farmers. It would give farmers a greater as surance of having an adequate supply of plants at early trans planting time which would not have to be pushed too hard in n plant bed. Such a supply of plants will aid tremendously in avoiding immature tobacco at harvest time This cost Madison County farmers and other fanners in the area a tremendous amount of money in the 1964 crop with frost bitten tobacco in the field and green tobacco because it had to be har vested in an immature stage.
