Answdr: GET A MC CORMICK-DEERING "100" SERIES CORN PLANTER TO INSURE MORE CORN PER ACRE. Under the new farm act, every com grower's acreage is limited, but his yield per acre is not. The released corn acreage goes into soil building crops. Big yields per acre are not cheating the objective of the farm act, but helping achieve the end in view—the rebuilding of our soils to the condition our forefathers found them. Question: WHY JUNK AN OLD BUT USABLE PLANTER? Answer: BECAUSE i'OU'BE PROBABLY LOSING TWICE THE PRICE OF A NEW MC CORMICK-DEERING EVERY YEAR.
