Efficiency, Market Problems
Confront II. C. Peanut Growers
Two big jobs face North Carolina
peanut growers according to E. T.
York, head of the department of
agronomy at N. C. State College.
York, speaking. at the recent an
nual meeting of the N. C. Peanut
Growers Association in Scotland
Neck, said expanding, markets and
increasing production efficiency are
the two big problems facing com
mercial peanut producers.
In stressing the need for expanded
markets and greater consumption
of peanuts and peanut products,
York said there has been a 42 per
cent reduction of peanut production
in North Carolina 'Since World War
II. The price per pound received by
farmers has remained the same,
meaning that peanut producers have
lost almost half of their income
from the sale of peanuts in less than

is to improve through control of
insects and diseases; improving har
vesting techniques, and using new
varieties to fit consumer demands.
Two new varieties, NC-1 and NC-2
have been released by the North
Carolina Agricultural Kxoerlment
Station and seed of these varieties is
now available to farmers.
York believes the one-year-old
Peanut Growers Association can go
a long way in establishing new uses
for peanuts and promoting and ad
vertising peanut products.
In increasing production efficien
cy on each individual farm, York
recommends increasing yields by:
(1) Using improved varieties.
(2) Getting adequate stands by
planting enough seed properly treat
ed for disease control and closer
'(3) Proper fertilization.
(3) Proper cultural practices.
(5) Controlling insects and dis
