The importance of the potato crop as briefly indicated above and the fact that it can be grown successfully in every State in the Union, should give it a place in courses in general agriculture and farm crops in nearly every school where such subjects are taught. At least one aim in the teaching of agriculture should be the training of farmers for the future, and as a result of such teaching the world should be better fed. The immediate aim in teaching this subject may be to aid in securing a production of better potatoes at a lower cost, but it may also be a medium for developing and applying many of the general principles of plant production. Applying these lessons to a home project will not only have greater agricultural value, but also will do much toward developing the student into a self-reliant husbandman.
