WAHINGT'IDN, D6 O0 -_ damage to the tomato crop by late blight disease
in 1946.was widespread, resulting in unprecedented loss to many growers, Last
year the disease first appeared inlt h4s southernmost producing areas and moved
northward as the growing season advancodo Although late blight of tomatoes
Shas caused some damage for many years, when weather conditions favored its de-
velopment, the virulent and destructive forn of the disease last year has ad-
mittedly puzzled plant pathologists. In anticipation of a possible recurrence
S-of this destructive disease thib year, a service designed to keep growers irn
fornmd regarding the appearance Cnd spread of late blight on tormtoes has boon
established by the Bureau of plant Industry of the United States Dopartment of
Agriculture* A key pathologist in coach of 32 states has been designated to
gpthor information on occurronoos and progress of late blight of tomatoes in
-their raspoctive statose This information is then passed on to Dr. Paul R.
M:: lor with the Division of Micology & Disoease Survey, Beltsvilleo Nbryland,
Swho will brief;the reports and distribute periodically to cooperating states.
On the basis of these reports pathologists in the several states will rocom-
mant timely spraying and other control mo!.suros. The Agricultural Insocticide
& ,FuIgicide Association will undortako to see that adequate supplies of fungi-
aidos are available on the market for growers who need them. A similar service
is also being offered in connection with blue mold disease of tobacco plant
bods, which is already widespread over the bright loaf tobacco producing areas
of Georgin and Florid..

Investigations show that no vitamin A is lost in sweet potatoes dur-
ing storage through the winter and spring Pale yellow varieties havo less
vitamin A than those with a deep golden color. '

ONA, FLA. The need for more and better winter food for 'cattle is
beyond question, srys Dr. E. M. Hodges, Associate Agronomist with the Range
Cattle Experiment Station hero, and, he adds, that plans for next winter must'
-be made now. He suggests that serious consideration be given to growing sugar
cone as a feed for wintering cattle* He says "Sugar cane is being used as
winter feed insurance in many places in tho battle country of Florida. It is
a heavy producer of forage and may be grazed in the field or run through an
ensilage cutter before flooding. Cane left standing in the row is killed by
frost but has been fed to cattle as long as three months after freezing with
no harm exoopt sonm loss of feed value*

"Gano may be produced on any land having modetatoly good drainage and
fertility. Florida 762, one of th -bost feed varieties, should be used if
planting material can be obtained. It is grown throughout the state nd is
readily obtained if planting is not delayed too long. About two thousand ,
stalks are required to plant an acre, the canos boing laid with several inches
overlap in a shallow furroa and plowed under for coverage. Five to six hundred
pounds per acre of a 4 7 5 or similar fertilizer should be applied as soon
as growth is bogun. A 4.dsoason fertilizer may be used to increase grow th
Old stands of oano should have the soil plowed away from the row' in oarly, spring
A hoavy disc adjusted to leave a wide center land may be usod to cut the earth
i., way from the row, After being barred off in this way the fortiliser is ap-
plied along the rows and tbo soil hillod up to the crowns again, it is im-
portant that oano be kopt froo from woods until the crop is tall enough to
shade out such growth* An rore of qane will permit limited trial feeding and
Sproduoe stalks for added planting"
