Money to move the crops -- This term means the money
employed to pay for the crops when they are taken out of the
hands of the farmers and sent to the general markets.
At the seasons of the year when the grain and cotton crops
are ready for sale large amounts of money are usually shipped
from the great money centres to the districts where the crops
are raised. When the farmers (and planters, as growers of
cotton are called) have been paid for their products and they
in turn pay off their own debts or make purchases which
have been postponed until the receipt of the money or when
they deposit the money in the local banks it begins to flow
back to the money markets, where it finds employment and
earns interest until needed to move the next crops.
