Tests On Trial
In East Texas
Jasper—A campaign for winter
pasture demonstrations in Jasper
county has ended with 95 farmers
beginning demonstrations on 782
acres sowed to small grains such an
wheat, oats, rye or barley, and to
hairy vetch, a legume. The object, ac-
cording to S. W. Munroe, county
agent, is to furnish good green feed
for livestock this fall and winter, and
to give a good green crop to turn un-
der to help next year's crop.

Morrow, home demonstration agent,

be put up from one small beef, she

Trees Pay Wefl
San Saba—Additional proof of the
practicability of top-working and
budding of native pecans to improved
varieties is furnished this year in
San Saba county. M. O. Patton of
Harmony haa a large crop of im-
proved nuts from a large top-worked
tree that yielded $200 worth last
year. W. J. Millikin of River Bend
Farm proudly exhibits a small tree
top-worked to the Wright variety
seven years ago from which he has
already realised $84 in the sale of
pecans and bud wood. This year's
crop on the tree is estimated at 40
pounds, worth |20.
Since beginning to thin up his na-
tive grove several years ago, William
Gage of Chappel community states
that he has never failed to gather a
good crop. He expects 80 to 90 per-
cent production from his trees this
fall whereas uncared for groves will
likely not exceed 36 per cent produc-
tion. These successes, according to
N. E. Scudder, county agent, are due
to long years of effort on the part
of pioneer pecan growers, aided by
top-working and budding campaigns
in recént years.
