IIThe Food Production Movement
The Food Production Movement. PGBLIC AT All THEN. A public meeting was heid at the Carmar- then Guildhall on Thursday evening the 11th inst. for the purpose of hearing an address by Mr Dudley V. Howells, of the University Col lego of Wales, Aberystwyth, on the mbject of Horticulture. Alderman J. B. Arthur occupied the chair. Ir Howeils in his address s4tid that he had visited seven Welsh counties lately, and lie con id not help noticing the fact that most foi the gardens grew potatoes during the summer, and were totally destitute of -reflation during the winter—except weeds. The land should be occupied right throughout the year, iso as to ensure a contiwuous supply of Vegetables. When land was allowed to he idle during the winter it deteriorated in value because a good dc; of the manurial elements were washed away by the winter rains. To get the best value out of the land, one must use intelligent anticipation—consider what crops will fjuoeed another on the same spot. He thought that this ycnir zi great deal too much stress had been laid on the question of growing potatoes. A good deal could be done by drying vegetables for winter use and by bottling vegetables. A dilute solution of salicylic acid could be used to pre.5?rve beans for inte use, and by drying vegetables one can have cauliflowers and cab- bage right throughout the winter. There were great possibilities of inter-cropping. That was not however possible asthings often were. There were parts of Pembrokeshire where the potatoes were planted in rows lo indies apart; some people had the idea that they must put j a1'! the seed they had into the ground. If the potatoes w: re placed wider apart and other crops grown between them a good more w;,ui:l be got out of the ground. Attention had to be. paid to a rotation oi the crops. 111 ere Mere- certain crops which scented for a time to "poison" the soil for others of the same kind. He suggested dividing the vege- table garden into three parts to be cicpped as follows A. P ir-t year, potatoes 2nd year, roots: 3rd year, "greens." B. First year, roots; 2nd year, greens; 3rd year, potatoes. C, First year, grcrr.s 2nd year, potatoes: 3rd year, roots. By "greens." he meant peas, beans and the cabbage tribe (cauliflower, brocoli.

ination often showed that the first shoots wer J killed by the manure. Lime should not be used with potatoes. Superphosphate or other ae ief manure is the best for potatoes. Tlie lecturer pointed out that all the new varieties of potato niiit deteiiorate in the course of time. As we grew potatoes irom tubers they are bound to deter orate in the course of time, and new varieties be raised from seed. "Ashley" was a wonderful potato lo or 20 years ago, but you would be lucky if you got a four-fold return from it now. I'nk-ss you get an eight-fold crop a potato ,LIS not worth growing. The best first earlies were v "Sharpes Expi-t,ss" and "Midlothian Early the iatte-i- of which had given a crop ol five tons to haif an acre. The best second earlies wen' "Great Scot." "Goldoii Wonder." "Brit- ish Queen" and "Northern Star." The main crop varieties which he considered best were "Arran Chief," "Arra-n Hope." "President. "Edward and "Royal Kidney." good's Tremendous" is a potato of good pro- mise. "Evergood" is a good light soil potato. It is rather inclined to become "oapy '11 heavy land. When he left Bangor he was anxious to make an experiment in growing potatoes. A field was procured and ploughed about a week after Christmas. The land had i>een dressed with lime to break the top -about 8cwt. to the acre The potatoes were dibbled in six inches deep at a distanc of 10 indies apart and the rows 30 inches apart. They wer? afterwards cove rev I in with a hoe and the ground harrowed. They afterwards had a dressing of 3i-w t. ut supev- phosphate and lewt. of animoira sulphate 1;) the acre. The yield was quite as good as any in the district. A very useful artificial dress- nig for potatoes is olbs superphosphate am! nibs ammonia sulphate to 40 square yards. Half the superphosphate should be applied t the time of planting, and the either half with the ammonia sulphate at the time of "earth- ing up." Potatoes revel in potash manure's when they can get them, but the supply is new absolutely cut off, and it is useless to look for any of that ingredient. It has IHM-.II proved by experiment that when potatoes were crowehxl the crop was lighter then when they were given sufficient Two plots of e-qu .1 size had been planted with potatoes—one with 2-">cwt. and the other with lo. There was 212, tons more potatoes dug off the latter I)I:Oi and there was half a. ton of seed sa\e-el. In rural districts of Wales potatoes are-- planted too close. He had be-, n up in the Aeron Valley anel had watched some potatoes being planted. The farmer asked him how far apait the potatoes ought to li-O placed. He -Mr Howeli) put some down 22 inches apart as '1, mode' He purposely exaggerated the dis- tance because he knew that the distance would rapidly decrease! By the time he got to the end of the row he found the women planting them four inches apart. Whern lie n>ked the women why they placed them so close toge- ther they said that they were putting do v I one for the farmer and the other for the crows. There was about loewt. of seed put into that- half acre. Potatoes which were intended co be used for seed should newer be put into a damp or allowed to heat they should always be exposed to the air. Potate>es should Hot I <> planted in the ridge but in the furrow the ground is then Jeveù after planting. t, I j 1: A discussion followed. Some of those pre- sent gave unsatisfactory accounts of t I i,, personail experience with potatoes which w ee a good deal boomeel. The lecturer said that it was possible t Ii L the potatoes had been steamed. Another section of the lecture was d i mainly to onions. He said tha.t the gi ou>:d for rotts should 1)(\ worked to a elepth of two feet once in four years. He advoe a ted tec method called "bastard treucbiing." in } "aid thai the Park was v cry ex- posed. He should not recommend these to be taken as ordinary garden unless was something there more iiM-lui than a cree.v. Peas, beans and potato-^ were !ov »r« of turf.
