Farm,” is the name of a new farmers’
bulletin which should be of great val

plan to provide storage space for their *
own grain crops this year. 1
C. W. Overman, Chowan County '
farm agent for the State College Ex

and asking for Bulletin 2071.
The publication stresses the need
for storing only grain with a low
moisture content, outlines the basic re

of structures can be used for other 1
purposes when not needed for storing 1
grain. Methods and equipment for re
ducing moisture content of grain to a '
safe level and maintaining it during 1
storage are described also.
Only clean grain should be placed in
storage, said the county agent. Crack
