should bring in the neighborhood
of $1,500,000 when the market
opens in December.
Increased acreage harvested com
bined with high quality burlcy ac
counts for the value of the crop.
"We've got the heaviest tobacco
this year we have ever had." de
clares Mr. Corpening; ."If will run
about 2000 pounds per acre. When
you figure that we have some of
the best quality ever, the. heaviest
ever, afrd the largest avreagc ever,
you can see that we ought to have
the most tobacco on the floor ever."
The increase In allotments and
the increase in the number of farm-'
ers planting their allotments have
resulted in the harvesting of nearly ',
one-fourth more acres In Imrlev..
The PMA office reports that this
year 2058 allotments were granted
in the county, with 1876 of them
used, to harvest 1379 acres. Last"
year there were 1969 allotments, of,
which 1609 were used. Total acr-
age harvested was 1118. ,
Part of the increase, according'
to Mr. Corpening, Is due to the
CDP Tobacco Commission's meet-
ings and tobacco schools early In'
the year. "Then the contest spoilt
sored by the Community Develop
ment Program and financed by the""
First National Bank is having .
great deal to do with the acreage
set out. Previously, we had been
losing aproximately 300 acres each
jyear by failure to plant full allot
ments. Since weather conditions
I have been generally favorable, and
the tobacco cured out well. It
should grade the highest quality."
