#60 VELVET BEAN CULTURE
7'
W John M. Scott.

The preparation of the seed-bed is the one important fea-
;'
ture of growing velvet beans.. Prepare the seed-bed by plowing the

ground thoroly. Plow new land from 4 to 6 inches deep, and old

.land that has been cropped for several years an inch or so deeper

than it was the previous year.

Plowing should be done in the early fall, (November or Dec-

ember). All vegetable matter on the ground should be turned under.

The best results will be obtained if the beans are planted

in rows. If the beans are planted by themselves, plant in rows

4 or 5 feet apart, and drop the seed from 18 to 24 inches apart in

the row. If the crop is grown largely for seed, a larger yield

will be obtained by planting in rows 6 to 7.feet apart, with a

row of corn or a row of sorghum between. Corn and sorghum should

be planted rather thinly in the row so as to produce strong stalks

that will hold the the bean vines off the ground. No returns

should be expected from the corn or sorghum when planted as a sup-

port for the beans.

To obtain the best yield of seed,the beans should be planted

early in the spring. In South and Central Florida plant during

early MIarch, and in r'orth arid 'West Florida the last of March or

the first of April.

Give the crop gool cultivation from the time of planting

until the plants begin to, send cut long runners. after r this time

the op will quil1:ly cover the ground and shade it enough to

keep tKe weeds down.
.. *s
Only.sound seed should be used. It will not be necessary

For the sake of getting to a plan of work in eas so-uty,

and overcome eaea where Agetse work in too limiteA a fle3A, or to
overcome the greater possibility of Aoing a little of overy7ting and
acoomplbahing nothing definite.
It is probable that not more tmn one half will prpP ftly

submit a plaq., but by undertaking this with those who would like to
have plans it may be the means of arriving at a a tisafatozr plan
of work in each ounty.
Make copy for eaah Agent. Have each Agent fil in to suit

his county and location, and get these bank to Distriot Agent, State

Agent and Director'e desk by April 15th. File these for the

2lan e of the directing force as the weekly reports oome in, The
Agents can be advised other or not they are endeaboring to follow

the plan of work.they felt reasonable sure they could undertake.
