TOBACCO YIELDS ARE REDUCED BY BLACK ROOT ROT Madison County farmers have experienced a growing season which was not exceptionally fa vorable in 1966, Harry G. Silver, county agent, stated this week. The early part of the growing season was cool and had exces sive moisture for early growth of hurley tobacco.- This condition, associated with the fungus caus ing black root rot in tobacco, has drastically reduced tobacco yields in the East and Southeast sections of the county. The drought from mid July to mid August reduueed the yield and quality of tomatoes which were harvested from the a 0th of August until the end of the marketing season in most of the county. Everything was not a dark pic ture in agriculture in the county. The same early rains that reduced tthe quality of tobacco, helped to make exceptionally good pasture and cause an excessive growth that held through the dry season for farmers in moat of the coun ty. Beef cattle farmers reported good gains on their feeder calves and yearling steers. Market pric es on steers and calves were from 2c to 5c above the 1964 season. Thus, the income from beef cat tle will be improved over 1964. Tomato farmers had a good yield of exceptionally high quali ty tomatoes during the early part of the marketing season and with the . good market price, bad one of the best yean ever in Madison County. Burley tabaaao growers experienced good and should have tobacco to offer for market than in prior years.

ORANGES GROW ON RAMSEY FARM IN THIS COUNTY Maybe you think we've flipped pur lid but we heaven't, really. Oranges growing in Madison County? That's impossible! But it isn't! Ralph Ramsey, manager of the ASCS office here, visited the News-Record office Wednesday and in his hands he had a thorny branched twig bearing two leaves and TWO oranges. He stated that he had seen two "strange looking" trees about 8-10 ft. high on his farm on Marshall Rt. 6, but until last Saturday didn"t know what kind of trees they were. Then last Saturday he found out to his surprise. One of the trees bore two to three dozen little oranges about the size of golf balls. The other tree bore no fruit thus far. Mr. Ramsey says he has no idea how the trees got there but seeing is believing. Some of the experts say that the fruit is "mock oranges." We don't know. But it's a fact that oran ges do grow in Madison County helieve it or not! DESIGNATION OF ALLOTMENTS PROHIBITED Burley tobacco allotments may, be, allotted , as designated by the owner when land is sold or transferred to a new owner. Ac cording to Emory Robinson, chair man of the Madison County Agri cultural Stabilisation and Conser vation committee, this procedure was allowed by Amendment 3 to the Reconstitution Regulations is sued on April 22, 1965. Robinson went on to say the Food and Ag riculture Act of 1965 excluded burley tobacco from this designa tion provision. Robinson says that when a farmer sells part of his farm, the burley tobacco allotment will sren- erajiy divided according to the percentage ojf cropland he has sold. In some cases, it may be divided on agreement if an estate is being divided among the heirs. farmers that have an questions about the division of burley allot ments are urged to check with their local ASCS office before they make a sale of land. The lo cal office has all the records for the farm and will be able to tell the farmer how the allotment will be divided. This check can avoid some very serious misunderstand irags on the part of both the buy er and seller.
