The problem of the hour

Creator: De Arana, R. R.

Language: English

Subject: Agriculture—Philippines.

Abstract: Is it agrarian? Many say it is—we believe otherwise. After some careful analyses, you will find out too. Some say it is a ticklish problem. It is not so because it does not hurt anybody in particular. The growth of any nation and its people is fraught with ticklish problems. It is the law of nature, and “cause and effect” solves these ticklish problems and advances the nation. Mistakes correct the peoples’ ills. We must accept them as such and with vigor and thought, overcome them. It is the only wise course to follow to be content and happy people.

Progressive farming: preparation and application of compost

Creator: Chan, Gregorio S.

Language: English

Subject: Compost—Philippines.; Vermicomposting—Philippines.

Abstract: The addition of compost or artificial farm yard manure from orgenic matter has never been a generalized farm practice in the Philippines. Although its effects in improving the physical, chemical and biological properties of the soil and increasing crop yields are known, yet most of our farmers as well as gardeners fail to use compost in renovating the depleted soil. From field observations as well as literature on the subject. it appears that the preparation of this artificial farm yard manure from agricultural wastes and city garbage is not common in this country.

Revolution in the corn belt

Creator: Steel, Kurt

Language: English

Subject: Corn.

Abstract: (Condensed from Harper's Magazine); Four and a half million American farmers have put 13,000,000 bushels of seed corn into the ground this year. If all of it were planted in one field, that field would be about the size of the state of California. The harvest will be more than three billion bushels—enough to fill a freight train stretching half-way around the world. Corn is our greatest crop by any measurement—acreage, bulk or valuc. It is usually worth about as much as our cotton, wheat and oat crops combined.
