NEW BERN, CRAVEN COUNTY., N. C, TUESDAY MARCH, 21, 1911 FIRST SECTION
Culture as Shown By Department
of Agriculture for This r
Washington, D.-C March 16-The
possibilities for the profitable . cultiva
tion of the peanut in the Southern
States, especially lo Ahe- cotton bojl
weevil belt, Where this insect has ren
dered it almost impossible to, grow cot
. ton with success, .are pointed out in a
bulletin on "The Peanut," j ist issue
by the Department.br Agriculture. In
fact, it Is shown that (he peanut may
be grown in the boll wee vil districts in
, the South with much more profit than
the white staple.' When the value Of
the commercial peanut crop of the
United States for -1908 was estimated
at $12.000,0u0, the wonder is expressed
that this article of food is not more g en
ermlly cultivated, particularly in the
South and-Southwest,.': where it can be
grown at great proflt';?:-''-';-'.'.:
The demand or the peanut as an ar
ticle of food is constantly growing. -: In
this connection, the intei eating fact is
developed that this, country is a large
purchaser of peanut oil from abi 6rl,
while there are thousands of acrej of
waste lands in the Souih capable of
' producing enough peanut to keep the
cotton -s ted oil- mills' running and fur
Dish more than enough: oil for home
That the cultivation of the peanut is
, a profitable industry may be seen from
the figures of the bulletin. An acre i f
first-class peanuts, salculatinjr the yield
at a. ton of vines,, is worth from S8 to
: $10, and 60 bushels of peas,! worth $40
to 46(1, will give an income of 4S to $70.
The cost of growing an acre of peanuts
is variously estimated at $25, thus
showing a net return of $36 to $45. Thin
is above the average for the eioji at
now growing in (he United Statis, it
is stated, .but decidedly lower than may
. be expected under favorable conditions
and proper cultural methods. , '
