Oldest and Best Jewelers
Given a typical Piedmont farm,
with its characteristic red clay soil,
operating primarily as a cotton plan
tation, what can be done with it? In
other words, can this farm be chang
ed over to a diversified proposition
with profit and success? Many a
land owner is confronted by just such
a situation, and hence the topic is
of general Interest. That an under
taking ot this character can be suc
cessfully accomplished has been clear
ly demonstrated at the College farm
at Athena. It has been the policy
to reclaim a new area of land each
year. Unsatisfactory crops are raised
on much ot this land the first year
or two after an attempt to reclaim
it because of its eroded condition and
its bad physical state. An increase
in the herds ot live stock, thereby en
abling larger amounts ot yard manure
to be made available each year and
its return to the soil, has resulted in
improving the land and Increasing its
crop-yielding powers. Three hundred
and fifty acres of land are now under
The farm had been abused for years
It was without saUsfactory buildings
or a suitable equipment of implements
or live stock. It was determined at
once to organize it on the basis of a
stock farm, but without overlooking or
neglecting the possibilities of cultivat
ing cotton and the varied crops adapt
ed to the soil and climatic conditions
of the Piedmont area. Of necessity the
equipment could only be slowly pur
chased and assembled. The first un
dertaking was to organize a small dairy
herd and offer milk for sale. The re
ceipts from the herd the first year
amounted to $1,124,44, and the sales
of live stock to $72.29. The value of
the cotton and the cotton seed was
$469.72, making a total turnover of the
farm $1,799.37. This happened in the
college year 1907-1908. Nine years la
ter the sales from the dairy herd
amounted to $6,700.41, showing
steady and uniform increase through
out the period in question. The sales
of live stock increased from $72.29 to
$3,056.02, showing an even greater in
crease. The sales from cotton and
cotton seed have varied somewhat ac
cording to the season and the price
of the staple. The first year thexrop
brought $469.62, and in other years
it has sold for as much as $1,S31.$3
The total receipts have varied fri
$1,799.37 the first year to $11,002.69
in 1915-1916. The total receipts from
the dairy herd in nine years have
amounted to $43,768.21, from the sales
of live stock to $13,377.95, and from the
sales of cotton and cotton seed $10,-
819.68, making a total ot $69,572.99 for
the nine-year period.
No profit was made from the farm
for the first three years because of the
lack of equipment and the impover
ished condition of the soil, but since
1910-1911 the receipts from the farm
show a net return ot nearly $18,000.00
over the actual outlay. This must be
regarded ns a satisfactory demonstra
tion of the possibilities of building up
worn-out plantation lands through the
institution of a diversified farm prac
tice in which live stock husbandry is
strongly emphasized. Remember, that
it was necessary to start in and re
claim practically all the land now un
der the plow, a considerable part of
which had been thrown out for a
number of years and It was, therefore,
badly washed and eroded.
A great variety of crops have been
raised successfully. Cereals are grown
each year and a crop of 2,000 to 3,000
bushels of oats obtained. Corn is rais
ed in considerable quantity, the stover
being used for roughage. Cowpeas
and sorghum, oats and vetch, oats,
rye and crimson clover, Sudan grass
and other forage crops have been
grown on considerable areas and cut
and cured as hay. Kaffir corn and
sorghum have been grown together
and used primarily for the produc
tion of silage, several hundred tons
of which is made each year. Cow-
peas have been used as soil builders
and turned under whenever practica
ble. A considerable area of land has
been devoted to alfalfa which has
been cut from four to five times
A rotation of crops has been estab
lished. Oats have been planted after
cotton and corn and followed,
rule, by cowpeas sown alone or in
combination with some forage crop to
be made into hay or turned under for
soil improvement. Cotton and corn
have been grown after cowpeas. A
three-year rotation, including the four
crops, has been the object kept in
view. It is conservatively stated that
the lands now under cultivation are
worth $20 an acre more for agricultu
ral purposes than when the work of
improvement was first undertaken.
