Preface


Constant requests for information as to what, when and
where in Florida crops of various sorts may be grown have
led us to prepare this booklet for the information of those
who contemplate coming here. Not only will the reader
find herein information of this character, but he also will
be able to get an idea of the cost of production and average
profit on the scores of things that Florida soils produce.
The reader should bear in mind, in studying this book-
let, that no other state equals Florida in the variety, fer-
tility and productivity of her soils, and in no other section
of the United States can land be found that will produce
so abundantly two or three crops a year. Florida is one
of the few places on the globe where land can be bought
at from $50 to $200 an acre which, with careful, intelligent
and industrious cultivation, will produce crops of a net
value of from $200 to $,0ooo an acre.
Truth about the possibilities of Florida is just begin-
ning to reach the people of the United States, however,
and is resulting in an influx of settlers such as few states
ever have experienced. It is obvious, therefore, that these
low prices will not hold for any very great length of time.
It is the advice of this department nevertheless that any-
one contemplating the purchase of land in Florida should
thoroughly investigate tracts offered him, and if possible,
visit the state and personally look over the place before
closing the deal.















Florida Has

35,000,000 acres of land
3,000,000 acres of water
6,000,000 acres in farms
2,500,000 acres in cultivation
1,263,0000 inhabitants
$580,000,000 assessed valuation (1925)
$2,500,000,000 commercial values
5,284 miles of railroads
I,ooo miles of state paved roads
7,750 miles of sand-clay roads
$12,ooo,ooo or more state expenditures on good
roads; counties more than doubling that.
$658,000,000 banking resources
No state debt
$6,000,000 balance in state treasury
IoY mills state tax levy
No inheritance tax
No income tax

Florida Offers Opportunities to
Intelligent, industrious and experienced farmers, es-
pecially in dairying, poultry-raising, trucking and
specialties.
Farmers of this type can-
Share in the $24,000,000 now being sent out of Flor-
ida annually for dairy products; nearly $Io,ooo,-
ooo worth of poultry products imported, and par-
ticipate in profits from growing-
Vegetables, celery, grapes, figs, and other things for
which there is a ready market.
Manufacturing plants making among other things,
raw materials for which are found here in abund-
ance:
Concrete tile, concrete and clay hollow building
blocks, sand lime brick, artificial building stones,
canned food products, feedstuffs, furniture.
















Florida at a Glance



Florida is a combination of health, pleasure and profit;
where the flower of American civilization abides; where
nature revels in the midst of plenty; where opportunity
knocks at the door for all, and where fortune holds out a
beckoning hand.
Florida ranks with the most healthful countries in the
world. Its mean annual temperature is from 64.8 to 72.3.
Florida has longer days of sunshine in the winter and
shorter days of sunshine in the summer than the northern
states, where extremes of heat and cold are so marked.
It lies between the parallels of 240 30' and 31 North lat-
itude, and 790 48' and 870 38' West longitude. These par-
allels of latitude lead through fourteen different countries.
passing through the Holy Land, where Jesus Christ was
born and crucified.
A responsive soil and unlimited business opportuni-
ties in this unsurpassed climate await development by the
industrious farmer and the enterprising business man.
Here, too, ideal conditions are found for home life. Espe-
cially is this true with relation to the educational advan-
tages of Florida.

SCHOOLS

Florida has upward of 3,000 primary and intermediate
schools, with free text-books through the first six grades;
270 high schools, and state institutions of higher learning
for boys and girls, at which there is no charge for tuition-
the University of Florida at Gainesville, and the State Col-
lege for Women at Tallahassee. These schools rank with
the best in the country. There are also 16 denominational
colleges in Florida.
The state is spending more than $15,000,000 annually
for educational purposes.











ROADS


Florida has 1o,ooo miles of improved highways A good
percentage of these already have been hard-surfaced aj)d
others are being hard-surfaced as rapidly as the state's
intensive program will permit. Under this program the
state is spending more than $Io,ooo,ooo annually, which is
perhaps trebled by the counties.
Motorists may, under state regulations, travel over these
roads at the rate of 45 miles an hour-slower through mu-
nicipalities-without fear of being arrested by an officer
who suddenly appears from behind a clump of bushes, as
is the case in rlany localities. All officers regulating high-
way traffic in Florida are required, by state law, to wear
uniforms and badges-another safeguard for the motorist.
Forida has more than 1,200 miles of coast line-divided
about fifty-fifty between the Atlantic on the east and the
Gulf on the west. Along this coast line are found some
of the finest beaches in the world, the sand of which is
so smooth and hard that automobile racing drivers have
for years been using them as testing grounds for their
"speed wagons."
These beaches afford year-round bathing.

AGRICULTURE

Soils-Florida has a great diversity of soils, producing
more than 80 crops commercially. More than 200 kinds
of fruits, nuts and crops are grown to some extent in the
state. There are millions of acres of these soils available
for cultivation, a large proportion of which have a clay
sub-soil.
Lands already devoted to farm purposes increased 80
per cent in value during the last five years, according to
figures compiled by the United States Census Bureau. Yet
there are more than 20,000,000 acres still available for cul-
tivation.

PRODUCTS

For the menu of America, Florida is providing oranges,
grapefruit, avocados, strawberries, watermelons, canta-
loupes, and vegetables, oysters, shrimp, fish and other sea
food, all materials for soups and salads, and many kinds











of preserves and jellies. Among the larger products of
Florida are:
More than $22,000,000 in fruit crops, $15,000,000 in
field crops, $1I,ooo,ooo in truck crops, $4,000,000 in root
crops, $2,500,oo0 in miscellaneous crops, $3,250,000 worth
of live stock marketed, $7,500,000 worth of poultry and
eggs, and $7,000,000 worth of milk and butter.
Fish and oysters worth $20,000,000 annually; $4o.ooo,-
ooo worth of lumber, $20,000,ooo worth of phosphates,
9.000,000 gallons of turpentine, and 9,000,000 sponges.

BUSINESS
There are more than 2,500 manufacturing plants in
Florida turning out approximately $225,000,000 worth of
products annually. Climatic and other conditions are ideal
for establishment here of other business enterprises.

S GROWTH
Florida's population increased 30.4 per cent during the
five-year period ended February 15, 1925, standing on that
date at 1.263,549. Since that time, began an influx of new-
comers into the state far greater than at any time during
recent history.
Estimates based on federal department of commerce
figures place Florida's property values at $5,500,000,000
by 1930. During the ten-year period from 1912 to 1922
per capital wealth in the state jumped from $1,148 to $2,341,
or 104 per cent. In the same time the state's wealth in-
creased from $921,796,ooo to $2,423,602,000, or f63 per
cent. Assessed values of real and personal property in
Florida jumped 830 per cent during a 35-year period end-
ing with 1925, the latter year's total approximating $580.-
ooo,ooo, which was more than $100,000,000 above that of
the preceding year.
Outside capital estimated at $450,000,000 was invested
in Florida in 1924, according to conservative estimates,
and the figures probably will go much higher in 1925.
Resources of national and state banks increased 5oo
per cent in the last decade.

FLORIDA RESOURCES
Vast undeveloped natural resources, which include:
Twenty million acres of farm lands yet untouched.











A reserve of 200,000,000 tons of phosphate.
Building material in forests, sand, lime and coquina
beds, to construct 4,000,000 homes or to build 200 cities of
ioo,ooo population each.
Six hundred varieties of fish in fresh and salt waters.
A net-work of rivers, lakes, canals, bays and inlets cov-
ering 3,805 square miles.
More than 1,200oo miles of coast line, 6,000 miles river
front, and thousands of fresh water lakkes ranging in size
from Lake Oeechobee, which is 30 miles across and 40
miles long.
The largest sponge industry in America.
The finest port south of Virginia-Pensacola.
The largest tourist hotel in the world-at Palm Beach.
The largest drainage project in the world-the Ever-
glades.
Some of the largest and most beautiful springs to be
found anywhere, from which veritable rivers flow.
Some of the largest development projects ever under-
taken, some of which plan the expenditure of $IoO,ooo,oo0
in the creation of new cities.

bulk of the citrus fruit and the garden truck of the state.
Its shores are laved on the east by the Atlantic and on
the west by the Gulf of Mexico, the high land ridge oc-
cupies the center.
It contains the splendid city of Tampa, which vies with

SOUTHERN DIVISION

South Florida presents the truly semi-tropical part of
the United States. It comprises sixteen counties with an
area of 11,376,781 acres. It has one of the largest inland
fresh water lakes in the world. Miami, "The City .\on-
derful." is on the east coast, Ft. Myers on the west and
Key West at the southern extremity of the United States,
in touch with the trade of the southern hemisphere.
Citrus fruit growing, trucking and live stock raising
are the principal industries. More than five million acres
of this division was originally under shallow water-the
Evergaldes. Since drainage and reclamation have proved
it to be of wonderful agricultural possibilities it is being
turned into ranches, field crops and trucking farms.

CROPS THAT CAN BE RAISED ON SAME LAND SAME YEAR
South Florida grows crops all the time so that the num-
ber of things that can be grown in a year on the same
land depends on the length of time it takes to mature the
crops that are planted.
Silage crops are the same as those of other crops of the
state.

Florida also is a state of rare products, many of which
are grown commercially, while others are being introduced.
Among those now grown commercially are:
Australian blackberries, avocados, blueberries, bananas,
cocoanuts, chayotes, cherimoyas, maumee apples, mangos,
mangosteens, natal plums, ornamental plants, palms,
papyas, pineapples, sapodillas, sugar apples, tangelos, tung
oil trees.

Fertilizer-The area is so widespread in Florida and
the soil so varied that a definite certain formula cannot
be prescribed to apply to even a majority of the acreage.
However, the following are leading formulas in the state:
Range of 2-8-0, 3-8-3 to 3-8-10, 4-8-3 to 4-8-8.
Maturity-The average growing season or time at

Strawberries
Variety-For commercial purposes the varieties of
strawberries planted in Florida are the Missionary and
Klondyke, with the Missionary far ahead of all other vari-
eties in preference.
Location-The larger and more important shipping
points of berries in Florida are: Plant City, Starke,
Hampton, Lawtey, Kissimmee, Kathleen, Dover, Lakeland,
Galloway. The counties of: Bradford, Dade, Hills-
borough, Osceola, Polk.
Maturity-Strawberry plants are set in the fall, usu-
ally September and October. They will cume into bear-
ing within three to four months. Proper ripeness for
picking will depend on the distance the berries will be
shipped, but usually from three-fourths to full red color
indicates the proper stage for harvesting.
Yield-A five-year average yield for Florida straw-
berries (1919-23), gives 1,893 quarts per acre. In the best
sections 2,500 to 3,000 quarts are not uncommon for an
acre's yield.
Cost-If new plants are used each year, and the aver-
age amount of commercial fertilizer is used, an acre of
strawberries will cost from $175 to $250. In the sections
specializing on berries the higher figure seems the nearest
to the actual cost. It will cost from Ioc to 12C per quart
to grow strawberries in the field or from i2c to I5c per
quart to produce, harvest, deliver, and pay all overhead
expenses.










Season-In December there are express shipments of
strawberries from Florida. However, the season proper
begins in January and continues through April.
Prices-The highest prices of course are paid for the
first berries, prices ranging in dollars-per-quart. In the
season proper, however, the months of January, Febru-
ary and early March are the best ones. By April compe-
tition has become more serious, the shipments heavier, and
the prices lower.

Miscellaneous
Beets-The principal varieties of beets produced in
Florida are Crosby's Egyptian, Extra Early Eclipse, Crim-
son Globe and Detroit Dark Red. From the time seed
are painted 60 to 65 days will be required for beets to ma-
ture.
Carrots-Leading varieties of carrots in Florida are
Scarlot Horn and Danvers Half Long. About 120 days
will be required to mature the roots from the time seeds
are planted. Carrots are not grown extensively in Florida,
never in car-lots. Most of the stock used by Florida deal-
ers is imported from other states. Along the east coast of
Florida the carrots sold there are mostly imported.
Eggplants-The Black Beauty is decidedly the most
popular variety of eggplant grown in-Florida. The Flor-
ida High Bush is grown mostly on high land. The Black
Beauty variety of eggplant will require 120 to 135 days to
mature.
English Peas-The Alaska Extra Early is the quickest
grower and most popular variety of English peas produced
in Florida. The Thomas Laxton and Florida McNeil are
favorites in some sections. The Laxtonians are very large
in size. Peas will mature within 60 to 70 days after the
seeds are planted. Shipped from Florida in car-lots and
by express largely.
Okra-Perkins Mammoth Podded okra is the best vari-
ety grown in Florida for shipping purposes. Other varie-
ties grown are the Long Green, White Velvet. Dwarf Pro-
lific (lowland). Under normal conditions okra will ma-
ture in about 60 days from the time seeds are planted.
Okra from Florida is shipped almost entirely by express,
or in mixed cars.
Onions-In Florida the Crystal Wax, White Bermuda
and Australian Brown compose the leading varieties.










Onions are set 4 to 6 inches apart in drills or rows from
12 to 15 inches apart. About 90,ooo plants will be needed
to set an acre, or from 8 to 12 bushels of onion sets. The
state average yield is 119 crates, though 400 to 5oo crates
on the best land is not an uncommon production. The best
prices in Florida are usually had in March, April and early
May. The average wholesale price in Florida, Jackson-
ville in particular, for White Bermudas through \March,
April and May will average $1.75 per crate for fancy Num-
ber Ones. Yellow onions will require about 125 days to
mature from the time seed are sown, white onions about
120 days.
Squash--Varieties usually grown in Florida are Coco-
zelle, Early Yellow Bush, White Bush. Squash will pro-
duce in about 60 days and occasionally as early as 45 days
from the time seed are planted. The yield per acre will
average 150 to 300 boxes in good sections. There is lim-
ited demand for squash, and it is a risky crop to produce
on a large scale.

BIG OPPORTUNITIES IN DAIRYING AND POULTRY RAISING

Florida's climate and other conditions are peculiarly
adaptable to dairying.
The dairy products of Folrida are valued at about $8.-
ooo,ooo annually. The dairy products consumed in Flor-
ida are valued at more than $30,000,000. Therefore, there
is strong demand for dairy products at all times in the
state, at fair prices. Most all forage crops and grasses
grow well in the state, and silos can be filled as cheaply as
in any southern state, which makes it easy to provide cheap
feed for cattle.
The ever-increasing population from the influx of tour-
ists will insure a good market for dairy products for years
to come. The very fact that Florida is importing from
Wisconsin, Minnesota, Tennessee and North Carolina and
other outside sources more than twelve million dollars
worth of dairy products annually is sufficient proof that the
dairy business would pay in Florida.
The situation with relation to the dairy business in
Florida also is true of the poultry business. The wild bird
life of the state, with its 425 varieties of wild birds, is proof
positive that the climate and conditions are suitable to poul-
try production.










Consumption of eggs in Florida is approximately 30,-
ooo,ooo dozen annually, compared to a production of 15.-
ooo,ooo, leaving a shortage that costs the state $5,000,000
annually in eggs alone. The state is producing only 15,-
ooo,ooo pounds of poultry, and consuming 45,000,000
pounds. This make's it necessary to supply a shortage of
30,000,000 pounds at a cost of about $7,000,000.
It may be seen from these figures, which come from
the State Marketing Bureau, that there is a wonderful op-
portunity for one who will come to Folrida and apply him-
self.
Inasmuch as with its present population Florida is im-
porting annually $55,000,000 worth of beef, pork products,
dairy and poultry products and feeds, it rmay be seen that
there is a wonderful opportunity for any progressive agri-
cultural, livestock or poultry husbandman.
