-Any land lhat ,will yield
with ordinary cultivation,
50 bushels of com and 165
v bushels of potatoes the
tame year, it entitled to be
classed among the Best
Com Lands in the World.
No farmer in the rich river
bottom lands of Arkansas
and Louisiana ever thinks
of setting leas than two
crops a year many get
three. They have found
that as a money crop corn
.unsurpassed. They bav
out, too, that for practical
. 160 acres are better than
can now buy the surplus of their wonder
fully rich land at about $25 an acre. It tt
thi grtattst tpportunity tvtr tffertd to com grnutrs of thi North.
165 bushels of potatoes and 50 bushels
of corn on the same land.
"Mr. O. O. Clark of Clark Brothers' Plantation, near Monroe, Louisiana, on a field
cU35 acres, raised 165 bushels of Irish potatoea to the acre, then followed this by
com, getting 50 bushels to the acre. . ' Mr. Clark is no exception every farmer
down there who is farming with brains is making big yields men like Guy Stubbs,
Uriah Millaapa, W. N. Ruffin, John P. Parker, all of Monroe; j.T. Compton!
S. W. Day, G. Tanner, C. M. Flower, Harry T. Rand, W. C. Harris, Bertrand
Veils, A. B. Pendleton and Ben Lewis, all pf Alexandria; J. A. White, of Ruston.
These men are not only getting big yield, but are getting
about 10 centa a bushel better prices for their corn than the
northern corn grower ia getting. Louisiana corn, because
of the long growing season, containa lest moisture than
northern corn, and is ready for export aa soon as harvested.
Thi make It in much greater demand as export corn, and
brings a higher price. -. ,
Many successful com growers of the North have gone down
to Arkansas and Louisiana and bought large tract of these
lands. Their unanimous opinion is that the Und is equal to
any $150 land up north, and that it has climatic condition
mora favorable for corn growing.
Eugene Funk. President, National Corn Growers' Assoc!,
ation, aara "An average corn crop in Louisiana, in the Delta
country, should be 100 bushel to the acre. Any yield less
than that, under average conditions, would be the result of
slovenly method in firming." ...
