CURING HINT FOR
Specialist Advises Wetting
Barn Floor During the
Wetting the floor of the tobacec
l.arn and placing wet sacks over th«
fire joints will provide a moist con'
dition in the barn during the yellow
* ing period which may increase the val
ue of the tobacco considerably during
a dry period.
"Because there is little sap in the
tobacco going into the barns during
a dry season, the leaf is drying before
it yellows and is therefore curing oul
with a greenish color," says E. Y
Floyd, tobacco extension specialist al
State College. "One way to overcom*
this" is to keep the floor wet wit!
water during the yellowing period
This will make a moist condition suit
able to better yellowing. It is also s
good idea to get some old sacks, wel
them thoroughly and place over thi
fire joints to generate stearic iti tin
barn. This will also help in bettej
coloring. If our growers now hous
ing tobacco will follow this plan i
will mean thousands of dollars ti
them in improved quality of leaf."
Mr. Floyd believes it is importati
to produce the highest quality of leal
possible this year. The crop was re
duced 25 per cent at planting time and
the ravages, of blue mold, flea bugs
and cold weather cut the supply ol
plants to where the acreage is at least
40 per cent under that of 1931. The
uneven stands in most fields and the
recent rapid curing will more than
likely reduce the crop by 50 percent
in North Carolina.
Reports to the department of agri
cultural economics at State College,
indicate even heavier reductions in
South Carolina and Georgia and it is
believed that Virginia has reduced as
much as North Carolina. Therefore
were not business . conditions as they
are, tobacco growers should receive a
fair price for their weed this fall. Or
dinarily growers should receive at
least 20 to 27 cents for the tobacco
that will be in sight this season, how
ever, such a price is not expected at

Question. tan celery be grown as
a fall crop in North Carolina?
Answer. Yes, in the eastern section
of llie State, (jood strong plants

Question. When should soybeans
' be cut for hay?
Answer. Development of the pods
is the best way to tell when the plants
should be cut for hay. Maximum
yields are secured when the pods are
abi ut full grown and one-third-to one
half filled .out. If left until the pods
: are well filled, the leaves are shedding
and the steins are coarse and woody.
For best results after cutting the hay i

Q Are .young pullets affected with

j Growing pullets should be dewormed
| at least twice before they come into
lay. When the birds are from Bto 14
weeks old and of normal size they
should be given a full-size deworm
ing tablet. After this, or when the
. birds are over 14 weeks old, they can
ite given a idult size tablet. Deworm
ing tablets can be secured from any
I poultry supply house, feed or drug
store, and the manufacturer's directions
should be carefully followed.
