AGRICULTURAL DATA

DeLand is the county seat of Volusia county

<'which has an acreage of 718,720. Of this area 76.796 acres
:were in farm lands Jan. 1, 1935, 19,365 acres in merchantable -

Stimber, and under cultivation 19,127 acres. The range of

s. soil in these lands runs from high pine land, a sandy loam
with long leaf pine as its natural growth, through flatwood

:. lands consisting of bladen fine sand .type with dark loam at

Sthe surface, underlaid with clay or hardpan impervious to
water, to hardwood land along the coast, a rich soil of

;.muck, marl and shell. Citrus fruits to the extent of

S1,500,000 boxes were shipped from the county, much of it
'.through transport agencies in DeLand. Truck gardening is

one of'the major agricultural activities over more than 80'-

of the year, the balance of the season going to cover, green

Smanural, and forage crops. Chief among the shipping points

for the output of the county's ferneries, most of which are

located nearby, DeLand sends this product to all points of

the U.S. and Canada. One year's output was 2,500,000 sprays.

Twenty-three varieties of forage crops can be

grown in the county which, if properly handled, would be in-

strumental in building up the dairy and beef industry which

cannot yet satisfy local demand. This applies to poultry as

Swell.
