FARM NEWS-PEA!URES Suggestions For Better Farming Featured For This Section's Progressive Farmers. Advises Farmers To Buy Poison Now; Good Investment Regardless Unpreparedness is the most frequent cause -of failure in the control of cotton insects, Dwight Isley, University of Arkansas College of Agriculture entomologist, declared in advising cotton growers to stock dusting materials and to purchase dusting equipment now. Last year stocks, of calcium arsenate and machinery were not available in many counties when cotton insects appeared. This alone prevented effective control on many farms, the entomologist said. "Money invested in calcium arsenate now, even though it Is not used, is not lost. Such an investment is a form of insurance. Furthermore." he said, "This forehandedness has an advantage over most forms of insurance in that if not used it does not deteriorate." The amount of dust needed for three general applications is 20 pounds of calcium nrsenate per acre. Acreages of cotton determine the type of duster to be used for general applications. A hand duster can be used effectively and efficiently on acreages up to 20 acres. Saddle dusters may be used up to 50 acres. Traction dusters are recommended for larger acreages. How_ever. Isley said, one or more hand dusters should be available even on large plantations for spot dusting. The cotton grower should know the extent of weevil population before dusting is undertaken. Dusting when not needed is wasteful, which is particularly dangerous 'Tree Farm' Signs Will Be Put Up Five hundred "Tree Farm" signs j have been ordered from sign j painters fur early distribution in all parts of the state, the advisory committee of the Arkansas Tree Farms System announced today as plum neared completion for the system's dedicatory program to be held near Fordyce on Saturday, June 6.
