Aprfl tt, MM farm News REVIEW and FORECAST On Missco Farms By Keith Bilbfey, County Agent In some ways, it's a good i large crop; harvested acreage thing that America's cottontwas the smallest since 1958. farmers are reducing their 1966 plantings about 30 percent. The cotton farmers in Mississippi County are reducing the acreage here about 25 percent. It is agreed that this enormous reduction in one year will be a shock to all segments of the economy. For instance, you reduce the number of bales 25 percent and that will almost automatically put a few dozen cotton gins out of business in the South. But a cotton surplus may be becoming unbearable to the nation. Surely this acreage reduction will start to reduce the nation's surplus. Carryover of all kinds of cotton in the United States on August 1,1966, is expected to total around 16.7 million bales (16.5 million upland cotton). This estimate is about 2.4'million bales higher than the carryover last August and compares with the previous record million in 1956. high of 14.5 Stocks are rising sharply because combined mill consumption and exports are likely to total well below the 1 a r g e 1965 crop..Preliminary ginnings indicate that the 1965 crop of all kinds of cotton totaled 14.9 million running bales (14.8 upland cotton), down only 0.2 million bales from the 1964 crop. Record - high yields caused the Prospects for U. S. exports have weakened further in recent months and exports are expect- id to total about 3.2 million oales, over 0.8 million bales below the 4.1 million in 1964-65. Prospects for U. S. mill consumption during.the 1965-66 season continue to be favorable with use expected to increase by about 300,000 bales to about 9% million bales (9.3 million upland cotton). However, because of the decline in exports, total disappearance for the year may be down about % million bales from the 13.2 million in 1964-65. We are running out of names. This is an absolute fact. Companies that develop or invent new products today have an awful hard time of developing a trade name that will serve their purpose and not infringe on someone else. Can we add some more letters to our alphabet? Here are some new pesticides for 1966. Can you pronounce them? Do you know what it is? They include: Parahep, Bromi- nil, Demosan, Dessin, Ductril, Tribac, Du-Ter, Temik, Clobber, Tenoran, Tiguvan, Dursban, Co- toran, Imidan, Da^omate, Al- drex, Sarolex, Abate 4E, Pra- mitol, SD 11831, Balan, etc. If you want to j> in the busi- ness of inventing new names, there is a well paid place for you. How very wonderful it is to live in this alluvial Mississippi Delta, now that malaria has been eliminated. Have you ever suffered from -the awful fever and ache and sickness of malaria? How many times? Thirty years ago, would you have ever believed that malaria mosquito, and malaria, could be eliminated. I did not. But it was! How terrible tuberculosis used to he. I thought no greater tragedy could hit a farm family than for TB to strike. I thought a few years ago we were . going to eliminate TB. People were better educated, knew how to prevent the dis- east, and the care and cure has improved so much. TB is expanding. You and you family are not safe. Mrs. Deer with the TB Association told me recently that a family of 13 had been discovered in t h i s county, everyone of them with TB! Since TB is still such a major problem, I appreciate our rural people, in 'act all Mississippi County citizens, supporting the Mississippi ounfy TB Association. It's good to report that these communities have already exceeded the 1965 contributions to the Mississippi County TB Association; - Armorel, Barfield, Bassett, BAFB, Blytheville, Bly- thev.'lle Business District, Bondsville, Dell, Driver, Frenchmen's Bayou, Huffman, Joiner, Leachville, Manila, Osceola, "ictoria, and Wilson. Outdoors Is 'In' This Summer And Cotton Wear Is 'With It' Life in the great outdoors promises to be more enjoyable than ever this summer. That's the view taken by sportswear designers who've gone all out in creating a fresh new wave of fashions for welcoming the sun, reports the National Cotton Council. "No longer a hodge-podge of catch • as - catch - can styling, sportswear this year offers a look for every activity. Whether it's boating, golfing, surfing, bicycling — or watching other people boating, golfing, etc. — each activity has a fashion all its own. Fabrics, too, reflect the young active mood. That long - time summer favorite — cool and comfortable cotton — turns up in every sportswear category. From checked gingham to plaid denim — from action •. free stretches to easy - going knits, cotton's versatility adapts to each and every style. In swimwear, the surfing look appears in tailored two - piece suits with bandeau top and boy- leg trunks which lace at the waistline. Seen chiefly in denim, cotton homespun, and madras- type plaids, the surfer suit usually takes a matching zip-front beach jacket. The feminine, all - girl look designed for surf-watching ... is most often expressed in brief little two-piece suits with pretty cover-ups. Favored and cotton lace. For boating and sailing en- fabrics are pique, dotted swiss, thusiasts, the newest look going is the "wet" look. It's interpreted in cottons that are lightweight for comfort and vinyl- coated for protection against sea spray or sudden squalls. Chemicals Recommended After the rains, many of the farmers are planting then- cot ton. I assume that all will use pre-emergence chemicals. The University of Arkansas recom mends the following preemer- gence chemicals for 1966: Norea is sold under the name of Herban and is an 80 percent wettable powder. Duiron or Kar- mex - This can be bought in a liquid or an 80 percent wettable powder. Monuron is sold under the trade name of Teluar. It is an 80 percent wettable powder. CIPC (Chlorc-IPC) can be bought in liquid or 20 percent grannules. Trifluralin (Treflan) in liquid form. Material and rate active per acre are as follows: The Norea or Herban recommendation calls for 1.25 pounds of active material for medium sandy loam, 1.50 pounds for very sandy loam, 1.75 to 2 pounds for silty loam and 2.5 to 3 pounds for dry loam. Karmex whether in the liquid or wettable powder has the jame broadcast rate per acre of active material. The recomendation calls for 0.6 pounds for medium sandy loam, 0.8 for very fine sandy loam, 1.0 pounds for silty loam •'.' MOUNT VERNON, Ohio (AP) _ Glenn R. Speliman, 22, pulled his car into a service station to bave the automobile's brakes worked on. But he was a little late. ' The brakes failed completely • and the car collided with tool cabinets in the station's lubricating room. i and 1.25 pounds for clay loam. CIPC (Liquid or grannules) 4 to 10 pounds. It is not .recommended on extremely sandy or heavy clay. Do not apply Diuron, CIPC or Norea on coarse, open sand, or Duiron and CIPC on heavy clay. Monuron or Teluar is to be used only on heavy clays or gumbo soils. The recommendation for this material is 1.25 pounds to 1.50 pounds for heavy clay or gumbo only. Trifluralin or Treflan. 'Recommended rate range for 0.5 pounds to 1.0 pounds of active material per acre. Incorporate no deeper than 2 inches or no deeper than 1-2 inch below the planted seed. For further information, come by the County Extension Office and pick up a Leaflet No. 383 - "Preemergence Chemical Weed Control in Cotton." Typical is a boating outfit in checked cotton gingham. Its waterproof gingham jacket is a hooded Sou-wester style with zipper front and large flap pockets. Completing the outfit are Jamaica - length gingham shorts and a turtleneck shirt of cotton knit. The natuical look also comes on strong for less active sailors in the classic double-breasted blazer of cotton sailcloth paired with long white pants that are either straight-cut or slightly bell - shaped. For riding the range — on horseback or on the seat of a bicycle — there's the ranching look. It's seen in hip riding wrangler pants of traditional cotton denim and authentic Western style shirts of faded chambray. In feminized versions the Western shirt comes in a surprise fabric like dainty dotted swiss. For other well - dressed athletes — or non-athletes — there are abbreviated jump suits far romping on the beach, divided skirts with stretch cotton shirts for golf, and eyelet - trimmed short dresses with matching briefs for tennis. Batman Flies Again! Simulated bat sounds may become a weapon against the cotton bollworm as a result of USDA research, the National Cotton Council reports. Bats, when hunting night-flying insects, emit sounds that function like radar to help them locate their food; but. bollworm moths hear these sounds and start maneuvering to escape. Scientists have produced bat sounds in the laboratory that affect the moths the same way. Entomologists theorize that these simulated sounds could drive bollworms from a cotton field. Center House Offers Plans A house plan service made available through the Agriculture Engineering Department of the University of Missouri is now in operation at the University Extension Center in the Caruthersville Post Office. The plan's service includes a x»k from which selections may be made as well as blue prints on the more popular choices. Others can be ordered. Blue prints are complete with floor plans, foundation lay-out, and elevation specifications and cost S.7& (seventy-five) cents per set. Anyone interested in building a new home is welcome to visit the Extension -Center and browse through the plans available. " Additional building and remodeling helps are here, too. These include kitchen arrangements, storage areas for all rooms as well as resilient floor and counter coverings, paint and other recomended finishes. i Council Calls Cotton An Economic Bulwark Everytime you buy a cotton product, you're investing in the economic future of this a.rea and this state, says the National Cotton Council. Sound far - fetched? It's not, according to the Council. Our economic growth is closely identified with that of cotton. And consumer demand for c o 11 o n products is important to the expansion of the cotton industry not only in this area, but in the state and nation as a whole. In this state alone, cash receipts from farm marketings in 1964 amounted to $239,900,000. This was 29.6 per cent of the value of all crops and livestock produced in Arkansas. There are 34,888 cotton • pro-1 when we buy. ducing (arms In tht state, as well as 513 gins, 44 warehouses, and 13 cottonseed oil mills. From cotton grown and processed in Arkansas come end- use products that range from clothes to cooking oil (a major market for cottonseed oil). As consumers, we can help support the cotton industry in our state by choosing cotton products PLANTS Hybrid Bif Boy Tomato Plant* 60c dw. BybrM Mariloba .... S5c dm.
