PAGE TWELVH (AUK.) COURIER HEWS Professor Offers Tip for Farmers Chemicals Used to Produce Vegetables With Greater Speed By MORT STERN (TJnH*d Pr«s Staff Correspondent) LITTLE ROCK, Ark., Nov. 24. (UP) — An Arkansas college professor said today he has developed a drouth-proof system with which th« average farmer can make a bumper vegetable orop In record t1m«. "The whole Idea," said Dr. B A. Spessard of Hcndrlx College' at Conway, Ark., "Is to eet the chemical food to the plants In the purest possible form — something like-giving strained spinach to babies." To do this, he has developed what he calls A "hydroponlcimi." The hydroponlciim Is made up essentially of two parts, a planting tank and ft feeding tank. YVmng sprout* • are planted in sterilized sand in tho planting tank, and the chemical food In solution Is allowed (o run in from the feeding tank. Sterilizing the sand eliminates unwanted bacteria and other plant disease breeders. As a result of the plants getting the food pure and direct, they mature in 20 per cent less time. In addition, Dr Sno.ssnrd said, the vegetables are of a better quality. "It's Just simple sirlthr-mctlc that the farmer who acts to the market fustost witli will make the most profit," Dr. Spessard says, Dr. Spcssnrd's hyriroponlcuin farms will be drougth-proof because they carry their own Irrigation systems- According to the professor, nsiy- one can make a hydropontcum. All he needs Is a shove), a hrvmmcr, a saw, a trowel, a v/heelbarrow and a rake. He may have to buy some mixed cement, lumber and about 100 feet of wire. With these, plus some old newspapers, a box of carpet Uicks, a window' screen, and a set of instructions which .Dr. Elpessard has offered to interested persons, the hydroponlc farm can bcrrnrc a reality. The big problem of hydrononlc farmers are likely to run up against, Dr. Spessard says, is the difficulty of buying chemicals In large quantities. Chemical firms tin not like to sell to Individuals. But Dr. Spe&snrd sayx> all Hint can be arranged If hydrononlc farming catches on. He explains that necessary 1 chemicals In 100 pound lots will be us easy to get as' so much chicken feed.
