Farm Development Plan Held Essential "The management and development of farm property Is, In principle, the same thftt of any other business," said D. D. Watson, Brentwood realtor, In delivering an address bofore the farm lands conference of the California Real Estate association at Tracy. "It must be adequately financed and carefully planned to be successful. It l often said that when a farmer needs a plrtce of machinery he nays for It whether he buys It or not. So It is with the development of farm property. The farmer aften loses enough money In one year on account of not being able to get the proper returns from his prop ery, to pay for the entire cost ot development. This loss may come from poor planning, or Jnsurticient capital, or both. "The developer must ue hia knowledge and facilities; for definite planning before he jumps Into anyTxtenwve work. He muat plan what he Is going to do' if something goes wrong. He must have vinlon and b able to create men tal picture of his proposed pro ject and then have the ability and finances to put' the proposition over. "The development of farm land Is primarily to make that piece of land produce crops or more crops or produce crops more cheaply." f W ST 1 1.
