Plan Big Increase
County Agent Beynolds i stated
today that prospects for an in
crease of possibly 25 per cent in
tobacco acreage appeared probable
on the basis of increased bed sow
ings in Duplin County. To date
farmers are getting the jump on
old man weather and are prepar
ing their beds as fast as possible.
Some have already sown;
t s Beports in the Hews, and Ob
server indicate that farmers thru-
out the tobacco belt in eastern
Carolina are rushing work pre
paratory to planting -''" beds and
prospects are for a large increase
throughout the state. a'
Mr. Beynolds estimates that Da
plin farmerswill sow 400 acres
in tobacco beds.
