R. Garriss, Extension plant path- ai
ologist at State College. I sa
He gives a good example of hi
what may be done by citing the ai
record of L,. S. Dilday or Alios-,?
kie township in Hertford County,' ?
who dusted 5 acres of peanuts

di cBsr-s and left another 5 aures
| When yield records were taken,
by Dilday, he found that the'
dusted peanuts had yielded an i
average of 2,142 pounds of nuts f
per acre as compared with 1,491 i ,
pounds for the undusted area, a,!
grain of 651 pounds of nuts per: 1
1 acre. ^
Garriss believes in being con- i
set vative. In estimating what i S:
may be accomplished in dusting
peanuts in North Carolina, he j
. says that if half of the peanut j \
acreage in the State were dusted j ^
