ounty Agent Urge
Farmers To Grow
Farmers Are Also Asked To
Cooperate With Hazelwood
"We believe this is a good year
to grow truck crops, especially for
canning. The latest outlook re
ports from the United States De
partment of Agriculture indicate
that a smaller acreage of commer
cial truck will be planted than
was expected. Many of our young
men engaged in farming last
year are working on National De
fense jobs or have been drafted.
There are more people working
who will spend more money- for
food stuff," said J. C. Lynn, coun
ty agent, this week in discussing
the importance of gardens.
The county agent also pointed
out that plantings of Irish po
tatoes have been above last year
in this county and it is estimated
that the number of gardens has
been increased as well as the size
of gardens and variety of vegeta
bles nlanted. He also urges the
farmers hot only to plant spring
gardens but also plan for fall crops.
Under the Lend Lease act more
canned foods are being exported
than ever before. The carry-over
canned foods is much lower than
one year ago. The Agricultural
Adjustment Administration is very
anxious that the farmers plant
a good crop of tomatoes this year
for home use and for commer
The county agents have pointed
out the fact that the local co-op-ative
cannery is offering contracts
to growers for tomatoes and it is
believed that money may be made
by contracting tomatoes to the
local cannery. The stocks on hand
of all canned food at the co-oper
ative cannery at Hazelwood is
the lowest in several seasons.
The cannery this year is oi-
fering the following prices lor
beans: 75 cents for number one's;'
65 cents for number two's and
45 cents for number three's. These
prices offer the farmers of Hay
wood county good insurance on
t.fcpir hf&n crot). According to
records kept by bean growers for
several seasons the average cost
of producing a bushel of beans is
34 cents. This is said to include
all expenses. .
By planting beans on good land
and using proper fertilization and
culture practices an acre Bhould
produce around 150 bushels. Tak
ing an average cannery price this
would be a gross income of $97.50
an acre or a net income (based on
reeord cost of 34 cents per bushel)
of $46.50 per acre. ; I " :
These are Baid to be very con
servative figures and should be
exceeded by 25 cents under favor
able conditions. All figures are
based on the canned prices; how
ever, if the green vegetable mark
et is enough in advance of the
canned market the co-operative
will sell the produce in the green
form, it was learned.
Beans are a quick maturing
crop and may be followed by soy
beans or cowpeas for hay and
many other crops. Farmers plan
ning to sow alfalfa in the fall will
find a bean patch very suitable,
the county agents point out
Haywood farmers are urged to
grow produce for the local cannery,
as the plants fills -the need for
marketing produce in this ection.
