L. C- Bunch, chairman of the

especially the cooperation of all

he told about coastal Bermuda
grass pasture because it is so
good." Wtth this statement in
mind, he is going to try it this
year. Mr. Hollowell in check
ing his grazing needs with the
W IT. Conservationist, J. H.
Griffin, found that he needed
summer grazing for his herd.
He has plenty of ladino-fescue
pasture hut in July and August ■
he has almost none. The addi
tion of coastal Bermuda will
balance out his grazing program.
Mr. Hollowell has made appli
cation to become a district co
operator of the Albemarle Soil
Conservation District and to re
ceive technical assistance in
carrying out soil and water con
servation practice. He plans to
construct an open ditch and a
livestock-waterway pond besides
the pasture this year.
R. C. Ward of Ryland is plan
ning to establish a coastal Ber
muda grass pasture this spring.
He needs a summer pasture to j
balance out his grazing program.]

The site selected for the pas
ture in Galestown loamy fine
sand and is well-adapted for
coastal Bermuda pasture. Mr.
Ward plans to construct an open
ditch and install 2,000 feet of
drainage tile. He has been a
district cooperator since Decem
ber 1952 and has conservation
plans for his farms.
Wilbur Hare of the Wingfield
section likes cattle and would
like to increase his hercT but 3rd
not have land which would
grow ladino-fescue. His soil
survey may showed that he had
plenty of soil adapted to coastal
Bermuda grass. With his pres
ent ladino-fescue pasture, he can
increase his herd and have a
balanced grazing program. Mr.
Hare just became a district co
operator and is constructing an
open ditch this spring in addi
tion to. the pasture. He is pre
paring his conservation plan in
March with technical assistance
furnished to the local district
through the Soil Conservation
This year is the first year that
farmers have requested techni
cal assistance in establishing
grass waterways. Several farm
ers have requested cost-share as
sistance from the local ACP
program. 'At least, one request
has been made for assistance in
constructing terraces along with
Sod waterways are sloped
channels, grassed to carry sur
face water off of a field. They
are located in depressed areas
where water normally flows
from the field. The grass pre
vents erosion caused by water
flow. Some “washes” in the
county are two to three feet
deep caused by recent heavy
rains. Grass will heal these
Farmers who are planning to
carry out soil and water conser
vation practices this spring are
requested to come by their local
SCS office and make an ap
pointment for doing the neces
sary field work. This will help
your SCS personnel do a better
job for you and service more
people. Most conservation prac
tices require detail engineering
surveys, plans and designs to be
successful. It is a pity that 9
drainage system cannot be pur
chased in a package with no ad
vance notice given. You want
the best, we of SCS want to
give you nothing but the best.
Give us a chance to schedule
our work; so that when you are
ready to install a practice, we
can help you.
Mrs. David Bateman, office
secretary, will be in the office
every day from 8 A. M., to
5 P. M., and can schedule your
work for you. If you can’t come
by the office, call 4127 and make
an appointment for your work
Now is the time to take soil
samples for your lime and fer
