I'S TIE FOR Succession Planting and 'Cropping Mean, More Food :Fi'om Garden Succession planting Is making plantings of'lhe .same crop at regi ular Inlervals. Succession cropping is raising two or more crops on flic samo ground In one season. Through succession planting each planting is used only when it is in the singe" of development when the quality., imd fliivor are best, according-. 10 Miss Cora Lee Coic- nian, home demonstration agent. Only cjiptijjlt should be planted at o.'.ce (o. use'during this best .stage of development and plr.ntiinjs should be spaced so that 'another crop is at Ihe right stage as soon as the previous one passes il. If you have followed the Oaidcn Planting Calendar, you should be making succession plantings ol, carrots, lettuce, radishes, spinach, sweet corn, lima beans, nnd mustard now. • By succession cropping'an early cool season crop can be ' followed by a warm season crop, and then by a laic Pall crop. This is of special value when garden space is limited. For example, you can plant radishes ,then snapbeans,- the spinach, In the snme place; or pens, carrots, and lurni]is. in that order; or you can follow early Irish potatoes' with late sweet'corn, Where cultivation is done by hand if may be possible' !o plant the second crop between rows of the first before It is- entirely used to give the second crop an early start. It is best lo avoid following a crop with another' of llic same family, fince diseases and insects alfccl- ing only 'particular families of crops might carry 'over.

'/lie Importance of the individual Victory yarden was Increased tills week with the release of the June crop report, Birl J. Allen, Extension horticulturist, declared yesterday. The decreased estimates of the amount of vegetables that will be produced for eonmicrclnl process- Ing and for shipment to the fresh market Indicate that the best way< to insure n continuous ample supply of fresli and canned vegetables for Hie family (able Is to keep the garden In constant production throughout the growing season, Mr. Allen said. llemlmllng liardencrs that one of the most serious difficulties in growing a (,'ood fan garden Is the lack of moisture for «oo<l gcrmlnti SHIN SUITE Yield In Arkansas To Be Less Than Half Of 1942 Production • Arkansas pcnelias will be' on the market within the ntxl few days, fa'uiart, [,.

Estimated production of pears was placed ml 100.000 bushels for this year, which Is a little more tlinn linlf of the 1047. yield. .. Oat production for the state will drop about 20 per cent under the 1012 yield, 'he said, estimating a hni'vtst of 6,283,000 bushels. Winter wheat will produce about 220,000 bushels less tun during 1042. Pastures (jcnernliy were In goml condition In tlic northern hnlf of the state. 'Heavy rains cut tlic predicted yield of Irish potatoes from la per cent, on May 1 to 73 per cent on July 1. Much of the commercial crop is produced hi llic Arknns(u> Elver Valley. Keep Victory Garden Producing To Insure Stock Of Vegetable crop. 'Ihc June 1 August, Mr. Allen urged lhat stejis be taken now to conserve moisture lor fall production. In many instances, lie said, Ihere will he idle space in the garden after the early cool weather crops have matured and the ground Is cleared. Where [his space Is not heeded for the planting of Summer vegetables such as eggplant, peppers, lomnloe.s, sweet iwtatoes, snap beans, or lima bcnns, the area should be kept clean and cultivated from now until lime to make plantings for Fall vegetables. By clean cultivating or Summer fallowing a part of the garden area, a great deal of Ihc moisture lhat Is now in the ground may be saved until laic July or August. But if grass nnd weeds are allowed to grow the moisture supply will be depleted and current rains at planting time will be the only source of moisUire. In addition Hie growth of grass and weeds will take plant food from the soil that should be saved for the vegetables. Under very favorable conditions the early plantings of tomatoes may continue in production until- frost. However, tomato plants suffer so severely from heat and droutli through late July and Aug- production is llsl llm vcrv ground. In about one month the plants should be large enough for transplanting to their .permanent location In the garden. desired lengths.
