Til®ITS I smoke a certain
brand of small cigar, and have
the! habt| of cutting them in
twd making two short smokes.
Recently, when cutting my cig-|
ars. 1 I have found on two oc-<
caspns, two short lengths of
string. Someone must have
beet in a hurry and failed to.
rerrwve the strings with which 1 '
the tobacco was tied. I'm be-'

of cigar should be changed'

Nhmatodes In Tobacco: Do
you have nematodes In your to-1
bacw this year? How can you
dettrmine whether you have (
and if so, how much? In a
training school last Tuesday,;
CoUJty Agricultural Agents
wee taught how to make nema
todt surveys, how to determine (
the level of infestation, and
how to plan tobacco nematode I
cortrol so as to reduce the ne-!
cesiity for soil fumigation.
According to research infor-j
•mation given by the tobacco (
spetialist, soil fumigants are
toxic to tobacco plants and re
sult ip at.jjeast. 4>ian« injury. ■
Promiscuous soil fumigation
whtre it is not needed costs
the grower an estimated SIOO
per acre. Therefore, soil fluni
gatbn should not be used un-!
less it is known to be needed.
H>w can you tell whether,
you have nematodes in your'
tobacco this year? This may be
determined by a systematic sur
vey. Take every tenth row.]
Pull up every twentieth plant'
and-carefully examine the roots.'
Rectud the infestation found on
eack plant by determining
wheiher it is none, slight, mod-,
crate, or severe. Then tally up
and figure the nematode index
for : the field.
-We have bulletins with cotn-
Plsfe information in them for
making a field survey. These
are available at our office.
The stalks should be cut and
roots plowed up to the sun
immediately after harvest. As-t
ter roots have a few days good,
sunihine. disc the field to turn,
up more roots. Let these sun
a few days, then seed a small*
