Land Resources Not
Being Used Is Report
,r Evidence of improper use of land
resources in North Carolina last year
lies in the fact that about 12 per cent
of the cropland in the state was idle
end even a larger per cent not fully
used, C. Brice Ratchford, in charge of
Farm Management for the' State Col
lege Extension Service, said here this
Land devoted to cash crops suoh as
cotton, tobacco, peanuts and com-i
mercial truck has been well utilized
and have Bornjajtty rendered a good
return, Mr. Hatcnford said, but the
land devoted to the non-cash crops
such as corn, hay and pasture has not
been utilized to the maximum. Farm
ers have normally carried out recom
mended practices on the' non-cash
crops. Adoption of these practices on
all crops grown on the farm would
pay high returns, he declared. .
One-half of the land in North Caro
lina is devoted to woodland, and' on
many farms the woodland has given
a very 5 lo w . return. Even though
many of the crop land resources have
been fairly well utilized, the land de
voted to forest has been more poorly
Labor, . North Carolina's greatest
resource, has not been fully used, he
stated. : Most farmers have felt there
was a labor shortage and this has
been true, yet, on these same farms
there has been idle labor.
Most crops require labor from 6 to
7 months a year, but during certain
seasons, especially the harvest ana
planting seasons, there is a labor
shortage. : During the winter months
no labor is required and this results
in idle labor. Enterprises can be add
ed which will profitably use the labor
resources throughout the year, and
keeping this labor busy the year-

Records Helpful For
Better Farm Planning
Because of records kept on their
past year's operations, thousands of
North Carolina farmers will have a
better balanced system of farming
for the new year, says C. Brice Ratch
ford, in charge of Farm Management
for the State College Extension. Ser
Records kept by farmers in this
8 tat last, year probably outnumber
those kept during any other year, Mr.
Ratchford said, and 'this means that
the strong and weak points of the
farm business can be detected and
adjustments made in the 1948 opera
Any hog producer could be proud
of a production of 163 pigs from 7
sows, says C. S. Mints, county agent
for the State College Extension Ser
vice. , '
"Such a record hag " been made on
the farm of Elmer Overman of Pike
ville, Route 2. Wayne County, ac
cording to; Mf. 'Mintsl who said that
the 7 sow produced 14 litters for ait
average of 23.3 pigs per sow. ?3!
Mr. Overman, a man who really
loves tne uuroc hogs, takes prifle 'is;
the production ; ability i of his sows
and is equally proud of his show rec
ord at the North Carolina State Fair
and various Duroc shows in eastern
North Carolina. Hjsltherd is headed
by the boar, - Fs y Type, the 1946
Duroc1 grand champion boar at the N.
C. State, Fair, and mature champion
boar at the 1947 Stat. Fair.'
Production Registry ork has been
given due attention on -the Overman
farm during the past year, Mr; Mints
said, adding that 7 litters' were quali
fied for : Production Registry during
tne year. ; . ,
Pineview Queen, a sow with 3 pro
duction registry litters ; to her credit,
is a standout in Mr. Overman's herd.
This sow has farrowed 49 pigs out -of
4 litters and successfully raised 40 of
them.; A gilt out of Pineview Queen,"
and sired by r ancy Type, will be used

there is some practice' or enterprise
