Combination of Corn Cotton pigs and peanuts proved profitable in Georgia Community. The Farmers of Brooks county a. Have proven in a most practical Way that a diversified Type of farming with Cotton retained As the chief single source of income can be profitably developed in Many parts of the South. For Many years the Farmers particularly in the lower half of the county have developed the Swine Industry and the production on the farm of the products consumed in the Home to a Point that has Een equated in but few places in the South. The United Stites department of agriculture in 1914 conducted a farm management Survey in this county a report of which is published in bulletin 648, which states that the Type of farming found embodies features that might with profit be adopted in Many parts of the Cotton Belt. Hogs next to Cotton. Cotton continues to be the chief source of income in this Section but unlike Many other localities in the South the next largest returns Are accredited to hogs. Little of the crop land in this Community is wasted. It is either made into pasture for hoes or cattle or cultivated and put in com and peanuts usually grown together Cotton water melons Oats Rye and other teed crops. On nearly every farm there is a Good Home Garden. The Type of farming employed in this Community the report states shows that the More highly diversified farms have a slight advantage Over the others in the yields of crops a considerable advantage in providing profitable employment for the work Stock and in returning larger profits per farm. The farms upon which the least diversification was practice returned 15 per cent less profit than the average for the farms of similar size while the farms practising the most diversification returned 16 per cent More than the average. Note of warning. In considering this question of diversified arming the bulletin sounds one note of warning. It states that wide departures from practices that fit economic factors at work in the Community Are Likely to Lead to financial disaster. The proper selection of farm enterprises is a Large Factor in determining the Success of the business and of equal importance is the combining of these enterprises in the proportion that Best fit the local conditions. No abrupt changes therefore should be made unless the local conditions Are changed by such factors As altered Market conditions or the introduction of serious pests and any change should have the most careful consideration of the Farmer. Increased profits through larger yields. The report further Points out that one of the surest Means of increasing the profitable Ness of these farms is by increasing the crop yields. There is for Ach crop a Point beyond which any further increase in yield can be secured Only at a Cost higher than the returns. On some individual farms in Brooks county this Point of a diminishing returns has no doubt been reached or exceeded but in studying groups of farms it was found that on the average increasing the yields of any crop resulted in increased profits. Keeping work Stock employed is another important Factor in the determining of farm profits. On farms that kept mules productively employed for Only 62 Days per year the Cost of work Stock was $1.70 per Day whereas on farms providing 172 Days of productive labor the Cost was Only $0.72 per Day. The farms that kept work Stock economically employed did so by cultivating a sufficiently Large area per mule. Thirty to thirty five acres per work animal was found to be the most profitable on the Light soils of Brooks county.
