"Have you ever been troubled
with internal damage in your
peanuts when you sold, them in
the fall?" asks R. M. Thompson,
County Extension Chairman.
If you have, it is possibly due
to Boran deficiency. Many of
the counties west of us that have
suffered with dry weather and
have rain: so late, already are
having a Boran deficiency show
ing as internal damage in their
peanuts this year. It is possible
that: there are very few farm
ers in Perquimans . County who
would .iteiually 'need this materia
JOT, ,08 or .09 cents in the fall
due'' tq'1 iriternal , damage, you
know that it. can, be- very , dis
astrous to your expected income
r6m peanut?, . For, this reason,
wf are suggesting that you ap
ply Boran in your next dusting
or spraying'with copper sulphus
and DDT or spray material, to
internal damage from
j occurring from a lack of Bocaa
. The suggested rate is Vz pound
to 1' pound of . actual Boran to
the. acre, which, if solubar is
used, : would be from 3 to 5
pounds of material , to the acre.
"The .i local agricultural insecti
cide and fertilizer salesmen will
have this material on -hand and
it is suggested that' you strongly
consider using, it on your pea
nuts as soon as, possible as the
cost is not 'prohibitive," - states
