T Elder with In a statement Issued this week Ijy S. J. Hend, Crossett. president of the Arkansas Beekeepers Association, nnd A- Gay, Little Rock, shxte bee Instructor. In the statement (he two experts on bees said: "Farming Is sometimes engaged In In a routine way so that some formers do not stop to consider the many little things that are neces- snry for producing a maximum yield. Deficiency of certain minerals In 'and may cause some crops to be unprofitable but can be easily replaced with commercial fertilizer. Wind, rain, and drouth are major Hems that may cause a good crop or a failure. "However, there Is one thing whic'a little notice Is given that certainly can alter the yield of most crops to a marked degree. That Is ixjllina tlon. Some crops are self-pollinat ing.- Corn, for instance, gets excellent pollination from tlie wind bill most crops require artificial or insect pollination. "In order to avoid 'inbreeding,' old Mother Nature, in her wisdom, nuidc most flowers dependent on insects lor carrying pollen from one llower to another, as in fruit trees nnd citron plants. "The best pollinating insects nre honeybees and are. the only ones over which, man has control. Bees can be moved in colonies direct to the crops needing this service.' Your county agent can tell you what crops benefit most Irom bees. "The federal government hns nsk- ed for a substantial increase in Ihc number of bees for pollination ot legumes and fruits. As has been pointed out. a nation must have a sound economy and prosperous agriculture to progress. A prosperous agriculture is dependent on diversified farm practice which In turn means legumes to keep up fertility of the soil. Our forest flr^s. poisons, and large one crop farms has nil, but destroyed the native wild insects, so we have to have bees for the welfare nnd sound economy of the nation. "Should yon need bees, your state bee ins|«ctor will be glad to furnish „ dilce some beekeeper to move enough bees to do the pollination. The bee lns|>ector can nlso put you In touch with beekeepers nearest you. "A Gay. state bee Inspector. 3'iC Slate Capitol, Little Rock. Ark., done a great work for the beekeepers and is prepared and wlllinl to lelp the beekeepers with any prob- em facing them. There is no charge [or this service.
