Waiting for conditions
For now, Dick is concentrating
on the weather, waiting for drier
conditions to settle in before fin
ishing the sorghum planting.
(Sorghum requires a soil tempera
'ture of at least 60 degrees to grow.)
On average, Schmalz harvests
nearly 100 bushels per acre of
sorghum and about ISO bushels
per acre of shelled com. Last year,
everything came out right for the
com. The soybeans, however,
didn’t do as well, averaging only
30 bushels per acre, way under the
profit margin for Schmalz.
Some ground has a lot of rocks,
and the condition of the sorghum
soil is red shale and lots of clay,
sand, and stones.
He regularly limes the soil
(about every three years per indivi

150 acres per year. Also, he care

“It’s nice to talk to other people
around the country and see how
they do things,” said Carole.
“You talk to those farmers out
there, (and they say) T farm
10,000-15,000 acres or so.”’ said
Dick. “Their garden is probably as
big as my whole farm operation! ’ ’
Before, at the farm’s peak,
Schmalz and family owned two
lime spreaders, a tractor-trailer,
and another truck. But something
was always going wrong with the
equipment, which meant nothing
but headaches to the family,
according to Carole.
“We have the trucking, we have

enough,” said Carole.
“We were the biggest farm
spreader in Bucks County for a
long time, until we scaled down,”
