Research, plus the stimulation of
incentives under the competitive
enterprise system, has thrust our
nation into an undisputed position
of world leadership in food produc
American agriculture has re
corded great achievements in the
past decades, but the challenges it
faces in increased population both
at home and abroad, and the
growing demand for improved diets
as a result of improved living
standards are very great.
It has been demonstrated that
money invested in agricultural
reserach has returned rewarding
benefits. Adequate research is the
basis for more efficient production
and marketing; lower costs; and
new food, forest and fiber pro
ducts. Expanded research can help
to find (1) Solutions to national
energy problems, (2) Better solu
tions to agriculture's environmental
concerns, (3) Acceptable controls
for diseases, noxious weeds, and
insects, (4) New crop varieties with
higher nutritional values and varie
ties suited to mechanical handling
and processing, (5) Solutions to
marketing problems, and (6) Ad
ditional uses for agricultural pro
The result of this type of useful
government spending has been
demonstrated by the U.S. Depart
ment of Agriculture and state
agricultural experiment stations.
Farmers recognize the need for
research in all segments of agricul
ture and our food system. Food
distribution accounts for a larger
share of the consumer's food
expenditures than raw agricultural
products. As a consequence, addi
tional research is needed in pro
cessing, marketing, and transpor
tation, as well as the factors which
affect the production of raw pro

Shorter Center Lines
To Save State Money
Motorists driving on the newly
opened northernmost part of 1-77,
or on US * 401, just south of
Raleigh, will observe that the
highway center line markings on
these segments of roadway are
shorter and are spaced further
apart than elsewhere.
The shorter center line markings
are not a result of a paint shortage,
but a means to save on highway
maintenance and construction
North Carolina Department of
Transportation (NCDOT) officials
report that the shorter center line is
a sign of the future and that from
now on the shorter center line
pavement markings will be the
norm rather than the exception.
"Soon all center line pavement
markings throughout North Caro
lina will be 10 feet long at 30 - foot
intervals, instead of the previously
used 15 - foot long marking stripes
with 25 - feet of spacing between
them." declared H.C. Rhudy,
manager of North Carolina De
partment of Transportation's Traf
fic Engineering Branch. He ex
plained that by using a one to three
painted line to spacing ratio,
instead of the old three to five line
to interval ratio, the Department of
Transportation will save an esti
mated $160,000 annually.
"Various studies, conducted by
the Federal Highway Administra
tion show that the shorter center
line markings do not reduce the
effectiveness of the pavement
markings, while they result in
substantial material savings,"
Costs to modify NCDOT's
pavement marking equipment to
accommodate the shorter line
painting procedure will cost an
estimated $2,000, but will save
50,000 gallons of paint annually,
enough paint to provide center line
markings for an additional 600
miles of multi - lane highway.
