N. C. Farmers Urged
To Plant Lots More
Lespedeza This Year
Farmers of North Carolina are
urged by E. Y. Floyd, state AAA
executive assistant, to make every
effort to earn as many soil build
ing practice payment units as pos
sible this year by seeding lespedeza.
Floyd said field surveys show
there is still a good suply of les
pedeza seed in the hands of retail
and wholesale dealers over the
state, and added that there is
still time to seed the crop. Many
farmers plant lespedeza over
their small grains but many others
also seed in the open field and
this is the best time for such plant
ing. He said seeding lespedeza earns
the farmer one-half unit, 75 cents
per acre toward soil building prac
tice payments under the Agricul
tural Conservation program.
This crop is one of the best
adapted legumes for the state as
a whole, it is fool-proof, and all
small grain should be over-planted
with lespedeza where possible.
"Indications are that water so
luble nitrogen will be short of
demands about 50 to 60 per cent
this year, and no one knows how
short it will be in 1943," he said.
"By growing lespedeza, the farm
er can produce for himself a large
portion of the nitrogen needed for
He declared lespedeza Is one of
the best nitrogen-gathering crops
grown in the state, and that this
crop is becoming more and more
important with such a large vol
ume of commercial nitrates going
into the manufacture of munitions
