He said three Important things to

to study the problems and map

says F. A. Romshe. horticulturist at
Oklahoma A. and M. college.
This is true.” the horticulturist
explains, "because home grown
plants continue growth almost im-
mediately, their root systems do
not require the two weeks neces-
sary for adaptation, and generally
such plants are less likely to be
diseased.” The buyer also has a
better chance to get varieties adapt-
ed to local conditions.
In three years of research work
at A. and M„ home grown cabbage
yielded an average of 10.7 tons per
acre while shipped in plants yield-
ed 4.8 tons. The largest difference
in cabbage yield for a one year
period was 8.4 to 1.5 of shipped in
plants. Tests on tomato yields
show that home grown plants
have twice the yield of shipped In
