anBod on a national survey which embraced a representative Irous os
ti a of the households of tho country, it is officially estimated that the
equivalent of 3.4 billion quarts of fruits and vegetables mroe preserved at
hone by American families in 1945 by canning, freoaing, brninng, end pickling*
Of this total, 58 por cent is estimated to havo boon prosorvod by acni-a i
bhuseolds, and 42 por esnt in farm households.
LAKi COT, FLA. Columbia County btrmors who planted over threo kaw
dros aeros of sweet ocrn for sale as greon corn this year havo discovered a new
erop for this area in' which thoy fool thore are good possibilities, reports J,
I. Konnedy, County Agont. Tho variety of snoot corn grown was the loana, a by-
brid developed by corn brooders at Iowa State Collogo, which sooms to be ell
adeptod to the well drained sandy lands in northern Florida. The markotng of
the crop was handled by Chaso a Company of Sanford, Florida, which oonoara has
pionereod the introduction and dovolormont of a oommroial sweet corn indutty
-i the oontral part of th3 Stato and is probably tho largest grower and shipper
of this commodity in the Stato. Tho conoorn had its representatives hero during
Do shipping season to supervise the picking, grading, and loading.
Swoot corn is a highly porishablo commodity and deteriorates An q3pPit
Luleas it is placed under refrigeration within a tow hours after it 0i pullode
An effort was mado to have the corn in the oars under rofrigoration within four
hours or loss from tho tiro it was pulled from the stalks. It was packed in
begs and the brgs were loaded into the oars in layers with a layor ca sucm iia
betweoo each layor of bags The oars wero moved under standard refrigeration
with Instructions to use five por cant salt in the bunkers at all re-doing sta-
tions onrouto to eastern mrkots to which the bulk of the corn was shipped.
Ioab like all othto aeeot corns is quite susooptible to oorn earsorm
damage Rocommended rathods of controlling this post call for the injection
into the tip of tho ears nmneral oil with dichloroothyl other added or by dust-
.ag or spraying with DIu. In planting this orop the farmers fool thnt if the
market falls too low to warranA shipment as green corn it can be tiliseod as
early asumor hog food. Mr. sbnnedy reports plans of former in the County are
to increase their aorages in snoot corn another yoar, and it is their hope to
markot a standard pack pui up under the ouporvision of a competent grcder rep-
rttenting the Unitod Statos Dopartmont of Agriculture.
That pigs need salt just as do dairy and beef cattle was fto rooflly
shown in an oxporimont by Iou Sftte Agricultural Collogo in which one lot of
pigs not receiving salt took 218 days to reach 300 pounds average, while another
lot permitted free cooess to salt, but othorwiso fod in exactly the same ana" r
took only 158 days to roach 300 pounds. Similar results were obtained in a
seoont flooding tost at Purdue Univretty whon pigs roooeiving no salt owighed
only 174 pounds on the avorage, while those receiving salt avoragod 205 pounds
at the close of the 8$-day todding period. The salt may be fed in tho minoral
miture or the pigs may given free aooess to salt.
