These are in Animal Husbandry and Gen6ral Agri-

On account of the extent of the courses it is impossible


for anyone to take advantage of all of them during one ses-

The

The older growers may need informa-

he may apply the best methods of control at proper time and
in the most effective way.
The man who grows and markets first class fruit, need


have no fear of overproduction.


There is no telling how soon


poor quality fruit may not pay the cost of producing it. It
is important to know what to do in order to produce good
fruit and then have the energy and determination to do it.
The Short Course will aid the grower in knowing what to
do; it will be up to him to do it.

use to try to grow them,


will be


studied.


The insects and

remedies for them are questions in which all are interested,

FARMERS' SHORT COURSE


COURSE


IN TRACTORS


AND


GENERAL


AGRICULTURE

JANUARY 6 TO 16, 1920


The use of the gas tractor in


Florida is


being rapidly


extended, and has occasioned a demand for a short practical


course in tractor operation and management.


It is becom-


ing recognized that the success of the tractor depends to a
large extent upon the skill with which it is operated.


Realizing this,


the College of Agriculture


has arranged


to cooperate with a number of manufacturers in giving this


year a short course in gas tractors.


The course will consist


of lectures and


discussions on


the subject of


gas and


engines, their accessories and equipment, and the application
of these to farm tractors.


Enough lectures on soils, fertilizers,


crops,


and


animal


husbandry will


included in


this course to give a man


valuable information on all phases of farming.
The practice work will consist of shop work, dismantling,


adjusting, and


repairing tractors,


under the


direction


experienced mechanics.


Some field practice will be offered,

Each will be in charge of an experienced service man. A
