Future Farmers Seed May Be Ex-j tremely Scarce at Plant-! ing Time Critz Warns. • t By J. E. CKITZ County Farm Agent IL is estimated thai the production of corn In Arkansas in 1930 is about one-fourth the average production for tile last five years. In some sections of Arkansas t!ic corn crop was a total failure. Production v.'n.s nlso low in the corn beit scales. This means thai there will be a great temptation to feed all the corn produced on the farm before buying frcd, and this In turn meins that many Arkansas farmers are goinff to face a seed corn problem next spring. In some sections of Arkansas there will be a seed corn shortage BEflLL ! BH.FJFn. !

Every farmer who has corn suitable for .seed should select, his seed this [all and store it separate fro:n his feed corn. It will be better to buy feed to replace corn that is suitable for seed. Seed corn will be a good money crop, next spring. What Makes Gnoil Scpd Corn The Arkansas Experiment station has proved that most of the varieties, of torn widely grown' in Arkansas nre well adapted to Arkansas conditions and that il is safer to rely on our standard local varieties than to go a long distance for need. For this reason il is highly, economical'lor a farmer to save his own seed com this fall, even if his corn is making only a small proportion of a normal crop. Field selection of seed-corn from | a field which,..has suffered from' drouth makes it 'possible to get seed which have a higKer degree of drouth resistance than is possible in a normal year, because the ears selected will come from stalks which had Hie highest degree of drouth resistance. Even it the ears are not as good as we usually look for. \ve may be sure that the seed is 'from strong, hardy stalks. . Select Sound Grain This year il \rill not be advisable to look for fancy characteristics of stalk and ear as is the | case in a good season. The important thing to look for is a yield of grain thnt Is better than the yield from the majority of stalks. Of course, the grains should be sound and well developed. After all i the biggest Ihing to observe in selecting seed com is the relative yield of sound corn per stalk. Every farmer that is going to buy feed in the way of corn and hay for his livestock can get one- third freight rate reduced by mak- ino application for a permit to county agent before Ocl. 31. Every effort- will be put forth to have this continued beyond the 31st of October, and every farmer is cautioned to get his permit and order f»ed before October 31. the steps of Hie court house at Osceola.

Corn Production for Year j HARRISBURG, Pa., tUP)—The i midsummer drought greatly affect- j cd the production of dried corn, a ;product peculiar to only five sec- j lions of the United States, two of 1 them in Central Pennsylvania. !
