Iq "Wisconsin is one of the four great potato producing states of the Union. Potatoes are grown on nine out of ten farms in the state." Weight. Stock running over twelve ounces is undesirable and not over five per cent of this maximum weight should be allowed in first- class shipments. Quality. Stock should be practi- cally free from serious external im- perfections including late blight rot. common scab, sun burn, frost injury. bruises, knobbiness, second growth. etc. Stock should be mature and clean. Varietal purity. Commercial potato shipments should be graded to one variety. Commercial potato growing in Wisconsin is not on a speculative basis. The industry is inter-related with a permanent system of farm- ing by men who have investments in homes. For the reason that all natural conditions are favorable for the development of the industry Wisconsin always will be a great potato-producing state. Potato shipping interests maintain that competition is extremely keen now-between potato-growing sections of this country. Wisconsin can meet this competition and reach out into new territory only through establishing a reputation for the continuous supply of well graded stoek. I To Readers of this Bulletin: With this October "bulletin" the Wisconsin Bankers' Association completes its Second Year's circulation of these Monthly Agricultural Bulletins. The information contained is furnished by men who are recognized as AUTHORITY upon the various subjects and the Bulle- tins are circulated by the various Banks of Wisconsin in order that the Farmers of our State may have the benefit of RELIABLE INFOR- MATION concerning various phases of Agricultural Development from which the "Earning Capacity" of every Wisconsin Farm may be brought to its highest stage. We are confident the readers of these Bulletins have been benefitted by them, and if you DESIRE TO RECEIVE BULLETINS FOR THE COMING YEAR (free of cost), a request to YOUR LOCAL BANKER will undoubtedly secure them for you. If your banker does not distribute them, a postal to Geo. D. Bartlett, Secy. Wisconsin Bankers' Association, Milwaukee, will place your name upon the Association's mailing list and secure you copies of future "bulletins" each month. This is one effort made by the Bankers of Wisconsin toward the further development of Wisconsin as an Agricultural and Dairy State. WISCONSIN BANKERS' ASSOCIATION. 1 I I
