Do What They
Eating is the main attraction at
the North Carolina Oyster
Festival, even if you like hot
dogs better than oysters, as does
Nicholas W hite, 2, (in photo

three-month-old brother Joseph
Phillips Jr. prefers napping.
Riding the merry-go-round is a
new adventure for 16-month-old
Sam Davis (in photo at left) of
Emory, Va. His mom, Sandy
Davis, keeps him secure in the
saddle. These kids took advan

festival opened Friday, while
there was still plenty of food and
space on the rides.
Brunswick County Residents
Submit 1,921 Soil Samples
Brunswick County property own
ers submitted 1,921 soil samples to
the N.C Department of Agriculture
(NCDA) for testing before planting
their 1993 crops.
The department's Agronomic
Division analyzed the fertility status
of each sample and made specific
recommendations for lime and fertil
"These samples represent situa
tions from corn, cotton and veg
etable fields to golf fairways and
flower beds," said Bob Edwards of
Lumberton, regional agronomist.
Soil acidity continues to be the
primary fertility problem in Bruns
wick County, he said.
Brunswick County farmers and
gardeners also submitted another 44
soil samples for nematode assay.
Nematodes are microscopic para
sites that attack plant roots. High
populations of nematodes are man
aged by planting resistant crop vari
eties, rotating crops and applying
"Testing soils and applying ne
maticides where needed is good en
vironmental stewardship as well as
being economically and agronomi
cally sound," said Edwards.
The soil testing and nematode as
say laboratories are housed in the
Agronomic Division of NCDA in
Raleigh. Sample containers are
available from most local fertilizer
dealerships and agriculture-related
agencies, including the local Bruns
wick County Cooperative Extension
Edwards suggests that samples he
submitted early to avoid the process
ing delays that have been experi
enced in past years as demand for
these services steadily increase.
For Brunswick County growers,
fall is the best type to submit soil
samples for analysis, a service
which is provided at no charge.
