•/ Program Under Way
Plans for the “D eve 1 0 p
Georgia” program to be held at
the State College of Agriculture
during the week of January 25 to
3) have been completed, and all
is in readiness for the throng of
visitors expected for the confer
ence, the College announces.
This will be the nineteenth an
nual Farmers’ Week held by the
College of agriculture. Starting
in 1907 at the opening of the in
stitution with an attendance of
less than fifty, it has grown stead
ily and last year a record of 1,5C0
hundred stupents for the week
was estoblished. An even greater
number is looked for this year,
it is said.
Amoiiog the program to be pre
sented will be addresses by Gov
ernor Clifford Walker, Commis
sioners J. J. Brown, Dr. Harvey
Cox of Em cry University, R. L
McKinney of the Macon News,
Miss Nightingale of Londoi
England, and Dr. Andrew M.
Soule, President of the State
College of Agriculture.
Value of crops produced in
Georgia in 1925 fell below that•< I
1924 to the extent oi $27,000,900
according to the final report of
the Georgia c<-operative Crop
Reporting Service issued recently
The loss in totnl value is attri
buted to the reduced corn pro
duction t-'geth( r with the smaller
potato, hay, peanuts, syrup
and apple croj s. Larger pro
duction of wheat, oatsand pecans
and better prices received for
peaches and water meh ns give an
increase in the value of thcae
crops, (figures shown.
Special significai ce is attached
to the comparisons of the yields
and total value of the tobacco
watermelons and peach crops ii
1924 and 1925, by Dr. John R.
Fain, Profes«or of agornomy and
farm economics at the Stat* Col
lege of Agriculture. In the case
of tobacco, in 1925 there was
gaeat ia crease in the ace age
planted to this cr< p with the re
sult that production was 17,000
000 pounds in excess of the 1924
crop, through the total value was
more than a a million bss.
1925 the area planted to water
melons was rduced 10,000 acres
yet the price rtceived for the crop
was almost a million and a half
dollars more a year before. Tin
1925 peach crop fell short of tin
1925 production by mere than
a million crates, still the total
value of the crop was $2,000,00
more than in 1924.
Those figures, Dr. Fain points
out, run true to forming.that
when a large acreage is planter
and an unusually large crop L
produced, the returns are nearly
always smaller than when a nor
mal crop is produced.
