Watershed is moving along on
schedule. The two draglines are
between US 17 and NC 37 high
ways. Channels are 30-35 feet
wide and about six feet deep. i
Many of the local landowners
are saying they hope they won’t
be around when the stream
overflows again. They are proud
of their project.

One of the best crop rota
tions for heavy land includes
tall fescue. Farmers report in- j
creases of SIOO or more when,
fescue is used in their tobacco
rotation. The fescue opens-up.
the land and causes it to bej
loamy, says farmers. Crops do
not suffer as badly from dry
weather when fescue is used in
the rotation. .
Experiments at the Oxford
Research Station shows that the)
root-knot nematode population
is greatly reduced by the fes
cue. This, of course, increases
the quality and quantity of the
money-crop . . . tobacco, pea
Richard Jackson of Yeopim is
starting to use fescue in his
tobacco rotation. This fall he
will mix 30 pounds of fescue
with his wheat. Next spring
he will harvest the wheat, leav-j
ing the fescue to grow the rest'
of the summer and winter. In
the spring (19621, he will turn
under the fescue and plant to- ■
bacco. This was planned by
him in his new conservation
farm plan. The local soil eon-|
servation district furnished him
technical assistance in preparing
the plan. I
J. B. Hollowell of Crossroads,
. . . two grass strips of six every j
year. Next year, this year’s,
grass strips will be used forj
tobacco or peanuts and two new j
grass strips planted this fall.
Field strip cropping systems are
used to reduce water runoff and
to stop erosion.
Fahey and Carroll By rum j
have been using fescue in their j
crop rotations for about four > 1
years. They discovered that;
crops grown behind fescue pas
tures were excellent crops. Now, i
they use fescue on about all of
their "stiff land". II
Fescue grass might help you

30 pounds of tall fescue per,'

grain. Mix the seed in thej 1
grain drill and plant. Next 11

many types of records to keep.
But records are all for the same

Many honors have Been givfcri
to deserving 4-H members for
their project work based on their
records. This could not have
been possible if it had not been
for their record books. Not only
are 4-H records a basis of re
warding an individual for work
accomplished but they help build I
a strong mird and prepare the
4-H’ers to face problems of later
life. There is a personal glory,
too, in completing project work
and records to accompany this.
To know that self and surround
ings have been improved by pro
ject work gives a warm and sat
isfying glow of pride.
All county 4-H records are due
in the Extension office on or
before Thursday, September 15.
It is important that Mr. Venters
and I have the records by this
date in order for us to get them
judged for county awards and
then sent to the state office by
September 30. School will soon j
be starting and that means home !
work—so complete your 4-H
records now and get them to .us.
