SsGd Buying Hints
The old saying "Well begun is half
done" certainly applies in growing a
crop . of corn,- says 1. C. Yagel,
t ounty farm-agent for the iState Col
lege. Extension Service. . .
As ,with any other crop, the most
important single operation in produc
ing a good corn yield is buying the
seeu, suggests tne county agem. to
, help farmers with jfchis task, he offers
First, know what hybrids are rec
ommended for your area. This dnfor-
mation is avaiiaitie irom ithe county
agent .or (from State ICollege. In
sist on getting one of these hybrids
; when you ouy. your seed. Don't get
a hybrid which is all right for Florida
or Georgia or some other state but
which is not adapted to North Caro
lina conditions. ' '? ,
Second, look at the tag on (the seed
bag. .Notice ithe germination, purity,
and other information listed. Be sure
ithe bag carries a tag stating the seed
have been "North Carolina certified."
Also look for the grower's guarantee.
Third, !buy the seed, take them
home, and prepare to grow the crop
according to State College recom
. mendations. -v ' ... :' '. v
Mr. - Yagel . says some farmers
are doubtful about (the performance
of round seed corn as compared with
flat seed. There really is no differ
ence in ithe two types. : (Both have the
same breeding and are produced on the
same ears of seed plants. Since the
selling ' price of round seed is less
than for flat, farmers will save money
by buying the round itypes. Planter
plates will be adjusted by any farm
Hybrid seed cost 'slightly more than
open-pollinated types, (but the extra
money spent for hybrids will prove to
be- a good investment, Bays the farm
agent. Records of Ithe , Experiment
'Station and of hundreds of Tar Heel
larmers "show 'that hybrids increase
yields about 26 .per cent.
No matter how. handicapped we are,
we can always give something, if it
is only a bright smile, or a kind word,
or a helpful act. Helen Keller.
If we know something arood. let's
tell it. Some day e may get the
habit of telling only the tilings that
are helpful rather than those that are
hurtful. . - . .. - -
