Question: How much fertilizer
should I use on my tobacco plant
Answer: An application of 200
pounds of a 4-8-3 mixture should
be applied to each 100 square yards
of bed. If a lower grade of ferti
lizer is used it can be supplemented
with from 50 to 100 pounds of cot
ton seed meal provided the meal is
thoroughly mixed with the soil. All
fertilizer should be broadcast and
mixed thoroughly with the top
three or four inches of soil. Do not .
Use tobacco trash on the beds nor
any manure containing tobacco'
leaves, stalks, or roots.
Question: How can I keep my
chickens from picking out their!
feathers? - < • j
Answer: This trouble is caused by
a small mite that gets into the skin
near the base of tjhe feathers and
causes irritation. To get rid of this
mite the poultry house should be
thoroughly cleaned and sprayed
with a solution of three parts of
crude petroleum or carbolineum and
one and one-half parts of kerosene,
Dip the birds in a tub containing
two ounces of flowers of sulphur;
and six ounces of flaked soap to
five gallons of tepid water. Be sure
that the solution gets to the skin.
Question: Should the grain ration j
•of my dairy cows be increased dur
ing the winter months? I
Answer: This depends upon the
quality of hay and + ihe present milk
production. Each animal should
have about three pounds of silage ,
each day for each 100 pounds of
live weight and all the legume hay
she will consume in two feedings, i
When the qualitv of hay is poor, j
more grain will be required. How- j
ever, no matter what amount is be- j
ing fed, if tjie milk production re
mains normal then the feeding!
should not be increased. Extensionl
Circular 193 gives the grain rations'
for different breeds and am'ounts
of production. This circular will he
