In some eases failure to get good weed control in the past with herbicides has been found to be due to errors in calibrating equipment.

If you use arseni- cals such as D. S. M. A. post- emergence, these are not to be used more than twice and not after cotton blooms. If you treat your crops with insecticides there is a certain waiting period before grazing or harvesting to be observed. A new Missiouri University Guide Sheet on Control of Johnson grass on roadsides and similar acreas has just come off the press. New and more econo ical control programs have been discovered through research. It is important to decide which Johnson grass infestec areas will be attacked first then use a control program which can be fully carried out on the funds available for that purpose. Mowing may be the most practical control program in cases where a dense stand of Economy May Be Answer In Cotton Production Development of better techniques through research represents only half the job in cutting cotton production costs, the director of the National Cotton Council's production and marketing division emphasizes. "Implicit in a stepped-up research effort is the idea that the useful results will be carried over to the development of better and cheaper production and handling practice — and that these new practices will adopted in situations where they fit," says Claude L. Welch, Memphis. He cites progress in a coordinated effort to cut field losses in mechanical harvesting of cotton as an example of how says, demands more personnel, growers are led to identify the cause of a problem and then do something about it. Harvesting, he says, is only one of 12 areas of technology where worthwhile cost reduction can be realized ' extension programs can be made more effective. To accomplish thr. educational job involved in getting costs down aa quickly as possible, he says, demands more personnel, better ti .ined specialists, and considerably greater local orientation of programs. Such a program would require about 52.5 million in additional federal funds, Mr. Welch notes, but none have been appropriat- ed for the current fiscal year. The Council has been active, he says, in an all-out drive for a special cost - cutting research program, over and above the regular research program directed toward cotton's problems "Over-all," he reports, "we are past the half-way mark in getting this special cost-cutting research program funded." This crash effort is in addition to work financed by routine appropriations to the U. S. Department of Agriculture, to that carried out with state and federal funds a state experiment stations, and to that financed by the cotto- industry through the Council and Cotton Producers Institute. "What we are striving toward," Mr. Welch explains, "is actually - two-layered attack in research. It will take all we now have working for us plus the crash program to get the job done. 'If we fail to recognize this, the drive to cut costs can fall into a booby trap and it's this: "The SlO-million program, while it is certainly not large in relation to our industry's urgent needs, seems quite la;ge in the minds of some folks in relation to the level of resarch effort we have known '• past years. "There inevitably arises the temptation to let this crash program supplant the support our regular programs have been receiving — to withdraw support now received from regular ap propriations am', from the cotton industry itself, and let the crash progrrm take over. This is a trap we simply must avoid." He stresses that industry-financed research not only in- Economy May be answer Farm creases the total effort but p»yi .

Mowing will not eradi cate the grass but it will weaken it and prevent additional infestation from seed. In some cases mowing and spraying may be combined to get control. Where it is desirable to have other grasses than Johnson grass to grow, a selective chemical such as D. S. M. A. or M. S. M. A. may be used. These chemicals are highly responsive to temperatures Those who wish to bring non- crop Johnson grass under control at the lowest cost will need to get a copy o fthe M. U.
