A FUTURE FOR TOMATOES
GUEST EDITORIAL .
Saturday, August 15, 1964 was a red letter day
for many farm families of "Madison County and the
adjoining area. This rainy day marked the opening
of MATO Packing Co., Inc. It mapkad the end of the
planning stage for marketing facilities for tomatoe
and other vegetables within the county and the be-,
ginning of the actual process of developing the mar
ket. - The marketing season was a' month old and
many producers had been forced to seek other places
to market tomatoes. The production was not good
because of severe drought conditions in May, June
and July and many tomato farmers who were pro
ducing tomatoes for the first time because extwmely
discouraged and some quit. Under these conditions
MATO Packing Co., had a reasonable successful sea
son, packing and selling over 58,000 twenty pound
packages of tomatoes and approximately 12,000' of
the lower grade in forty pound packages.
Farmers throughout the world are noted for be
ing able to plan in hope that the next year will Be
better than the last. This was the pattern with most
tomato producers and they planted a greater crop
and tried to do a better job for 1965. The last day
of August marked the 38th operating day of MATO
Packing Co., in its second season. During this period
a total of 133,090 packages of the better grade
tomatoes hid been packed and sold. Operation of
the packing shed was much smoother than last year
and in general the marketing of tomatoes had re
ceived wonderful acceptance. Tomatoes have been
shipped to Quebec, Canada ; New York, Philadelphia,
Pittsburgh, Chicago, Houston, Dallas, New Orleans,
Louisville, Jacksonville, Tampa, Miami and almost
every major city in Eastern and Southeastern United
States. The volume of tomatoes shipped from West
ern North Carolina to some of the larger cities has
been adequate for the USDA Marketing News Ser
vice to give a quotation on North Carolina tomatoes
for the first time in such cities as New York, Chicago,
Pittsburgh, and Philadelphia. These tomatoes are
in competition with tomatoes produced in CaMornia,
Michigan, Pennsylvania, Maryland, Not Jersey and
other places which have formerly W1?
kets. The quality of the Western North Carolina
tomato has been good enough tp canse the price,
quotations of the North Carohna tomd)J be equal
to or greater than that of tomatoes from, any other
location. This means that the markefcng success of

Drought conditions in practical
ly all of the Southeastern part of
Madison County has severely re
duced the yield of corn silage and
corn for grain. During the heavy
moisture need period for com
there waa a very low soil moisture
and the rainfall waa approxima
tely half or less the normal a
mount. This has resulted in a
corn crop which did not develop
full sized stalks and did not ear be
cause of a shortage of moisture.
Pastures in the same area have
not shown any appreciable growth
in the past month and have been
grazed beyond the point of a good
management level, states Harry
Silver, County Extension Agent.
The disaster conditions, caused
by the inadequate moisture sup
ply of the past month, calls for
farmers with livestock to take a
close look at their forage situation.
One of the things which may be
done to assist in meeting the for
age needs is for farmers with
pastures with a good stand or
grass meadows to be topdressed
in the very near future, use ferti
lizer material high in nitrogen.
