Big Stone Gap Post (Newspaper) - May 19, 1920, Big Stone Gap, Virginia Farm and Garden prune peach Trees often. A 8acond clipping in summer will make them look and boar bettor. The first logical operation for the peach Trees that have begun their second year of life in the Orchard is pruning. This will reduce the amount of Twig and Branch surface to be sprayed for scale and Leaf curl to a considerable degree thereby reducing the expense of such work. To secure successive yields of Fine a fruit there must be a proper balance Between the processes of vegetative growth and fruit production. Excessive Leaf and Wood growth is always at the expense of fruit production. Abundant fruit production is a direct demand upon the vigor and life of the tree. Pruning during the dormant season encourages vegetative growth. Weak Trees May be invigorated by proper pruning when dormant but an excessive Wood growth May be induced by too severe pruning. Lack of pruning is frequently responsible for fruit of smash size and indifferent Quality for an expensive Type of tree for spraying and harvesting of fruit for a Lack of Economy of the vigor and resources of the tree which can be directed toward fruit production and for premature old age and final destruction of the tree. A certain amount of Light is Essen tall to the production of Fine fruit. If the branches of a tree in full foliage Are so numerous and close together As to shut out All the sunlight All fruit in the Center of the tree will be of inferior size and of poor color and such a tree will soon fail to produce even inferior fruit in the shaded portion. In pruning a one year old peach tree the first consideration is the selection of the main branches the branches m in fruit packing. Makit berries Leek like poems and rep a Worth while Reward. Here is shown the Way to pack raspberries for the High class mail sets. Selected and fixed As they Are they Are poems of nature and the Short haired Farmer who gets a them ready often makes More on a crate than the Long haired poet makes on a perfectly Good set of verses. First of course you must have your perfect Berry and after that no care is too great to Send it to Market in by tries bight Bob Market. Tempting fashion. Clean Crisp boxes tissue paper preferably of a Light Green tint concentric arrangement of the layers and the peking of the boxes in crates to prevent a single Berry being crushed will bring Standard Oil dividends to any fruit grower. Education and wealth have made the average consumer most fastidious. He or she cares no More to have a lot of mixed up berries ladled out in bulk. The Cost is no object. The Quality is the thing. To Ltd ii a vex is a a a feb picture Ose tar old a Bach thee before pruning. Lower one shows same tree properly shorn and showing the Best of form. New Jersey agricultural Experiment stations that Are to support the fruit bearing surface of the tree. These branches should be vigorous and Well placed that we May develop a Well balanced tree. From two to three vigorous main branches Are in most cases sufficient to form the basis of the Bead of a peach tree. Four May sometimes be allowed to grow but More than this number is usually excessive especially with varieties which make a dense habit of growth. The tree May appear too Bare and open with Only two to three main branches left at the beginning of the second season but the space will soon be utilized by the development of vigorous Side branches. To prune a one year old tree then first select the Best two three or four main branches that tend to form the strongest Mest symmetrical and Best balanced tree. Out off All other branches close to the trunk. Summer pruning is not a common practice among peach growers in general but it is a very beneficial and profitable operation in Young Orchards. Peach Trees set upon Good soil and thoroughly cultivated will Moke a very rapid growth the second summer. Some of fhe leading shoots will commonly make a growth of from five to six feet if allowed to develop unchecked. Where such a growth takes place the bide branches on the leaders Are often poorly developed and the tree has really grown out of Bounds. A tree will also frequently develop top Many of these Long lending branches besides some smaller shoots commonly termed a suckers a and the top of the tree heroines too dense and thick. Such a wll require severe pruning the following Spring to get it into proper Forit. A too severe Winter pruning is what we wish to avoid in Young peach Trees As it promotes vegetative growth and delays fruit production. Summer pruning has the opposite effect and instead of forcing out still More vege. Kattye growth its tendency is to Check the tree and to promote fruit bearing. Educated Farmers. Railroad King says United states can never have oversupply of them. Few men in the world know More about farting As a wealth producer than does James j. Hill the Railroad King hence this extract from an article of his in the Yale College news is Well Worth perusal. A it seems probable to me a writes or. Hill a that there Are a Good Many Hundred University graduates in this country every year who would be better off if they had shaped their studies with a View to agricultural Industry and taken their diploma straight to the farm. A there is not and never will be any oversupply of educated Farmers. A at the same time the Man with a University education supplemented by just such practical instruction As he would feel essential the any other occupation is certain of Success on the farm in proportion to his ability and Industry. �?o1 do not think of any other occupation of which these sweeping assertions can be made. I do not know of any in which it is More possible to continue in connection with the main business of earning a living than enrichment and enlargement of the mind which is the Best gift of University life and its proper though Seldom realized continuation after the University has been left behind.
