  • POWER AND MACHINERY

    III. STATEMENT OF PROBLEMS

    Farm mechanization has progressed rapidly in North Carolina, but con-

    siderable contrast still exists between the highly mechanized operations versus

    the partially equipped farms.

    Availability of farm labor and the high cost of a limited supply are major

    problems in most areas of the state. Further mechanization is one method of

    off—setting this situations

    The relatively high percentage of small farms also poses many problems con—

    cerning acquisition as well as efficient use of modern machinery.

    Lack of simple maintenance and inadequate off-season storage add heavily

    to Operational costs.

    IV. PLAN OF ACTION

    1. Intensified work will be continued in cotton mechanization dealing

    primarily with machine application in the accomplishment of recommended

    cultural practices such as chemical weed control, cultivation and

    insect control. Special emphasis will continue toward further improve-

    .ment and adaptation of mechaniCal harvesting techniques.

    Tobacco being the tOp money crop will receive its share of work

    dealing with mechanical aSpects of transplanting, cultivation, insect and

    sucker control, and mechanical aids in harvesting. Agricultural

    Engineering will COOperate with Plant Pathology in applied testing of

    materials involving machinery for nematodes and disease.

    Peanut mechanization is moving rapidly but still short of desired

    acceptance in many areas. Educational work through the medium of

    meetings and field demonstrations will continue as requests indicate

    needs. Processors and their many buyer representatives will be con-

    tacted in educational meetings to further disseminate information pertinent

    to the success of newly adopted harvesting and curing procedures.

    Horticultural crops, including blueberries, sweet potatoes, cucumbers,

    etc., will receive attention, the objective being to reduce production

    costs and improve quality.

    Assistance with the Agricultural Engineering h—H projects (Tractor,

    Automotive, and Electric) will be rendered as requests indicate needs.

    Cooperative effort with our many farm equipment dealers and their

    suppliers affords a valuable resource to Extension teaching and will be

    utilized as situations develop.

    Prime objectives in the field of power and machinery are to reduce pro—

    duction costs, improve both yield and quality through the wise selection

    and efficient use of modern equipment. This, in turn, affording North

    Carolina farmers a more satisfying way of life through increased net

    incomes

    Teaching methods incolve agent training schools and assistance with

    area or community meetings, along with appropriate field demonstrations

    as determined by joint consideration. Necessary visual aids along with

    -printed materials will be used. Educational mater
