Quality First
Promotes Sale Of
Surplus Vegetables
Quality is the first essential
in the sale of surplus vegetables
according to H, R. Niswonger,
of N. C. S. C. “The purchaser
has no more taste for inferior
vegetables than the gardener,
himself, and the buying public
will protest inferiority by limit
ing or refraining from purchas
ing them.”
After high quality, the second
consideration in marketing sur
plus vegetables is attractive
apeparance. If an article ap
peals to the eye, the sale is
half made. This idea involves
the grading of produce, with
reference to size, color, shape,
ripeness, soundness, and meth
od of display, packing and pack
Third comes honest in pack
ing or bunchin. Too frequent
ly the imperfect, specked, un
clean specimens have a habit of
riding themselves within the
package or bunch of good prod-
,ucts. ■’*
A fourth consideration is that
the package or bunch should be
of convenient and desirable size.
He suggested that asparagus be
marketed in bunches of 2 to 3
lbs; beets in bunches of 4-6 with
tops undipped carrots in bunch
es of from 5 to 10, depending
upon size, or 3 large ones, wt. 1
to IH lbs; lettuce in bunches of
3 to 10, The aim of the ^r-
dener should be to fully satisfy
the consumer.

Q. What is the minimum size
of U. S. No. 1 potatoes?
A. The diameter of a U. S.
No. 1 Irish potato shall be not

S. No. 1 sweet potato, not less
than 1 3-4 inches. Also, a sweet
potato must not be more than
10 inches in length to meet the

Q. What varieties of small
grain show resistance to smut
A. Demonstrations show that
Leaps 157 wheat; Victor grain,
Stanton, Fullgrain 4, and Lee-
toria oats; and Iredelj and beard
ed 15 varieties of barley, are at
least partially resistant to smut.

of oats.
Q. What is the best equip
ment for harvesting lespedeza
seed under present conditions in
North Carolina?
A. Much of the lespodeta in
the State this year made only
fair growth because of abnor
mal weather conditions. Prof.
Giles recommends the simple, in-

a seed pan attached to a mowing
machine will do a good job un
