Prune Severely For Peach Crop Don't Wait Too Late; Work Should Be Done In Dormant Period It Is essentiul to prime peach trees rather- severely to obtain good fi'uil size and stimulate desirable shoot growth—HIM this immiiitr must be done duiins tlic duriiinnt period, or probably not later llian Marcli 15 in Mississippi CoimU'. The pruning of pencil trees does not reduce the yield us In the casts of apples, bill instead usually Increases Ihe yield of good fruit. The early training of a peach tree should be directed toward obtaining three to five main branches having wide crotches nrrniujcd around the tree about nix to 10 inches it part, vertically, according to Cora LC.C Colcjna)), county home demonstration agent. With good strong nursery trees, this may be accomplished during the first'year. If Die branches are weak, they inny be cut back to short stubs or removed entirely. However, it the branches on the nursery trees arc of strong growth, they inav be retained. • ' .

Wildy of Koute 2. l-enchvllle, state landowner champion in the 19-N Plant To Prosper Contest, topped the market with 14 head of .steers at Dixie National Stockyards in Memphis last week. Mr. Wlldy's cattle brought $15.25 a hundred for a total of $2303.33, or an average of $170.05 per animal. They were purchased by Abraham Urotlicrs Packing Co. Mr. Wildy raised the steers on home-produced feed. The lot consisted of four Aliens and 1C Hercfords. inferior trees, llicy should be nit back to a single whip or to n stub about eight laches lilgh. The growth arising from sucli a Irec should be trained dtn-ins the summer lo establish desirable main branches. Bearing peach trees should be pruned lo prevent development of long main branches which are barren of fruitint! wood. Tills may be done by handing back with fairly large cuts—i to l>.'. inches In diameter—rather than more numerous smaller cuts. 1 leading back the main and secondary branches will tend to keep Ihe heaving wood closer to (lie ground so that spray- Ing and picking may be done mure cn.sily. Each cut Mould tie miidc at- a point where another smaller brand) begins,- and no stub should be left.. As with apples, the painting of large cuts is of little or no benefit. On old Ircc.s il is sometimes necessary to make rather large cuts to bring lh e fruiting wood nearer the ground. This may be done hy cutting the i»nii> or secondary brandies below this point should be left on the Irce. Stubs IB to 24 Indies arc usually left, and branches arising from these slubs may be trained as a new tree. Both sour cherry mid plum trees should be mimed uy the same principles as peach trees, but their pruning should be very light—only about hnlf to onc-lhird as .severe as for peaches.
