In order to get more informa
tion about corn hybrids adopted
to the county, thirteen different
hybrids were planted in one
field at N orris Brothers' farm
near the Reese postoffice.
On Friday afternoon, Septem
ber 24 at 3:00 p. m., there will be
a meeting at this corn field to
look over the different hybrids
and get a better idea of how they
will mature in the section. The
name and number is on a stake
by each hybrid so that anyone
can tell the different kinds.
Please do not pull any corn off
as we want to measure the yield
You may be interested to know
that some of the hybrids are
very early and some are very
late. Two hybrids, Wise. 416 and
Wfin 602 were ripe about thirty
days ago, while others are still
Come to the meeting and
choose the hybrid that you want
to grow next year.
CROP IS NOTED
A record crop of feed grains is
in prospect for the nation this
year, according to Moyle S. Wil
liams, Extension farm manage
ment specialist at State College.
Present estimates for the na
tion's corn crop is now placed at
3,500,000,000 bushels of 1,100,000,
000 bushels more than was pro
duced last year. Mr. Williams
stated that 74,000,000 bushels at
this year's production will come
from North Carolina. Estimates
also point to a bumper crop of
the other important feed grains,
oats, barley and sorghum grain.
Livestock number are the
smallest in 10 years, and with
the large crops of corn and other
grains, available feed should be
greatly improved over last year.
In addition, a large hay carry
over from last year for the na
tion as a whole, plus a better
than average hay crop this year
should provide, generally, ample'
hay per animal.
The harvest yields of wheat
turned out better than expected
in the wheat belt and the 1,300,

000,000 bushels produced is sec
ond only to last year's record
crop, the specialist said.
The prospects for other crops
also appears bright The cotton
forecast of 15,169,000 bales indi
cates the seventh largest cotton
crop on record. The soybean
crop, estimated at 205,000,000
bushels, will break all previous
records. The peanut crop indica
ted at M00, 000, 000 pounds, will
be another record.
Prices for meat animals, and
dairy and poultry products have
increased and have more than
offset the decline in prices of
grain, soybeans and cotton. As a
whole, cash receipts for farm
products were up four percent
during the first seven months of
this year. However, it is expect
ed that net farm incomes are
down a little due to higher pro
duction costs during the same
period, Mr. Williams s4id.
