Chestnut Blight

Chestnut Blight

Date: 1930
Creator: Gravatt, G. F. & Gill, L. S.
Description: "Chestnut blight, caused by a fungus brought into this country from Asia before 1904, is responsible for the death of millions of acres of chestnut growth in New England and the Middle Atlantic States. The disease spread rapidly to nearly all parts of the range of the native chestnut, and the remaining stands of the southern Appalachians face certain destruction. The present known distribution, its symptoms, and the fungus that causes the disease are described. The blight fungus itself does not have any effect upon the strength of chestnut timber, and blight-killed trees can be utilized for poles, posts, cordwood, lumber, and extract wood. Search is being made for native and foreign chestnuts resistant to the disease in the hope of finding a tree suitable for replacing the rapidly disappearing stands. Seedlings of Asiatic chestnuts, which have considerable natural resistance even though not immune, are being tested in the United States." -- p. ii

Propagation of Aquatic Game Birds

Propagation of Aquatic Game Birds

Date: 1930
Creator: McAtee, W. L. (Waldo Lee), 1883-1962
Description: "A surprisingly large number (nearly 50 species) of the ducks, geese, and swans of North America have been bred in captivity, most of them, however, upon only a small scale. About 20 species have been bred rather frequently either in this country or abroad, and at least one of them, the common mallard duck, can be propagated as readily as, if not more readily than, the ring-necked pheasant of the group of upland game birds. The directions for propagating here given apply primarily to the mallard and the Canada goose, the most frequently reared birds of their groups. These directions summarize the experience of the most successful breeders both in the United States and in Europe. Exceptional treatment found desirable in the care of other species is noted." -- p. 1

Home Gardening in the South

Home Gardening in the South

Date: 1931
Creator: Thompson, H. C. (Homer Columbus), b. 1885
Description: Revised edition. "A well-kept vegetable is a source not only of profit to the gardener but of pleasure to the entire family. For many vegetables which deteriorate rapidly in quality after being gathered, the only practicable means of securing the best is to grow them at home. This is especially true of garden peas, sweet corn, string beans, green Lima beans, and asparagus. The land utilized for, the farm garden, if well cared for, yields much larger returns than any area of similar size planted to the usual farm crops. A half-acre garden should produce as much in money value as 2 or 3 acres in general farm crops. In most sections of the South, though vegetables can be grown in nearly every month of the year, the garden is neglected; in fact, no feature of southern agriculture is more neglected than the production of vegetables for home use. In the following pages specific instructions are given for making a garden and caring for it throughout the season." -- p. 2
