Abundant agricultural production is a victory goal and in South Dakota is based on an abundance of feed, forage and cash field crops and an adequate home vegetable and fruit supply. On the other hand, soil conservation and the maintenance of South Dakota’s agricultural productivity depends on a practice of moderate rather than wholesale over-cropping of cultivated land. Shortages of labor and machinery place a definite limit on the amount of really good farming that can be done it South Dakota for the duration of the war. One of the ways to insure maximum crop production from a minimum of planted acres is to prevent useless losses from easily preventable plant diseases.
