Intersex In Sweet
By GUY A.
Attache Oast Line E&Hrcad Co.
My friends, E. H. Rawl and T, A.
Cole, Clemsop .College, South Carolina

were recently, sent to Louisiana to
find out why Louisiana Porto Rico

' , South Carolina sweet potatoes of the
' same variety. .During, the paflt sev
eral, years shipments of sweet pota
toes from Louisiana ive steadily
. Increased and the industry has be-jL-eowe
firmly established at satisf ac
ta prices to growers, while shin
iest from South; Carolina have de
nned with a gradual - decline in
prices paid to growers. .
- The answer to the problem as I in-
terpret the report mad by Messrs
Rawl and Cole is attention to de
tails" all along the line. "
Louisiana growers have adopted
type that meets with favor in the
markets. They keep their seed stock
pure. They .treat the seed. They use
extreme care in soil selection, har
vesting, handling, grading and pack
aging, and therefore- can command
-and do.; command ' a price premium
whan they sell Louisiana growers
have adopted a type termed the cop
per', colored Porto Rico, that is, the
skin is-of copper color, yellow or tan.
The colore the flesh or. meat of this
Louisiana copper skin potato, is a
rich salmon or orange yellow. The
Porto Rico variety grown in Louis
iana is unusually uniform in skin and
flesh color. ,
In their report Messrs. Rawl and
Cole start with this mild recommen
"From the long-time viewpoint,
there seems to be an opportunity in
South Carolina for a commercial
sweet potato industry." Mild, I am
sure, because of conservatism in ex
pression required of men working in
their positions. However, after watch
ing the development of the commer
cial sweet potato industry since its
inception, t would say that there is
ample , opportunity in North and
South Carolina for r a substantial ex
pansion of the commercial sweet po

Tobacco growing counties have a
decided, advantage over non-tcbaeeo
counties because tobacco barns can be
successfully used for curing and stor
