Plant Being Made For
Furnishing AAA Lime
Plans now are being made by
coun.ty AAA committees or furn
ishing ground limestone to North
Carolina farmers as a grant-of-aid
mateial under the 1943 AAA
pogram, according to G. T. Scott,
chairman of the state AAA com
mittee, with headquarters at
North Carolina State college.
Orders for limestone under the
the 1942 program already have
exceeded 300,000 tons, and orders
will be accepted under this pro
gram until September 15, Scott
County AAA committees now
are soliciting bids for hauling
limestone from railroad points im
the various counties to farmyards
he said, and arrangements are
expected to be completed before
September 15, so that orders un
der the 1943 program can be tak
en by October I, Bid forms may
be obtained at the county agent's
Delivery prices of limestone
under the 1942 program vary
from $2.40 to $3.90 per ton, de
pending on freight charges. Prices
under the 1943 program will be
announced as soon as arrange
ments for delivery are completed,
the chairman said.
"With farmers engaged in their
biggest production program in
history, it is expected that use
of AAA limestone under the 1943
program will be more-than 400,000
touts. Our production goals call
for mure livestock, among other
agricultural products. This means
more- pastures, and limestone is
needed to insure a good growth.
At the. same time, it is likely
that commercial nitrates will be
hard to get next year. This
niakes it necessary for farmers
to produce as much nitrogen as
possible through use o winter
legume crop, and limestone will
be used extensively to promote,
better growth of these crops,'
