Such Is the commendable Job being done by the Arkansas Balanced Farming Contest and other similar 'enterprises. Tied In with the contest was »t least one example of cooperation between landlord and tenant. One of the last things 26 - year - old Thomas an<j Willie Mae Wewers of Craighead County, told judges was the splendid cooperation they received from landlord BID Parker, Jonesboro druggist. The Wewe'rsi who farm In Craighead County, won second In the tenant division. .Landlord Helped They said Parker furnished construction materials so they could build a modern home on his place. Parker bought. one-third Interest In 12 cows which Wewers had, then put up another third so the farmer could Increase his herd. One-third of the sale price goes to Parker when the cattle is marketed. A similar example was cited in the case of Jay and Matilda Richmond of the Coffman Community in Greene County. .Rtchmond.,said he broached the Idea of getting, into livestock production to his landlord, Ralph Rafton, Paragould businessman. Ratton responded with half the money necessary to get a herd. They now own 39 head of beef and dairy cattle on a partnership basis. Other examples .-probably are more the rule than the excepticji i — Spraying of crops by plane Is decreasing. .The State Plant Board reports that 12,000 acres were nd na sprayed by plane In 1S5J, compared with 23,000 acres last year.. Some 19,000 acres were sprayed' by ground equipment this year. Seed Production • An associate agronomist with the Agriculture Extension Service says Arkansas farmers are fortunate In that land facilities and climatic conditions are favorable for production of most of the seeds used in the state's crop and pasture program W. H. Freyaldenhoven says Arkansas does produce a large volume of the state's seed needs. He adds, however, that the seed is not always marketed to trie best advantages because adequate seed cleaning and processing facilities are not sufficient .in some areas. Seed production and processing 'will be one of the major phases of (he 1953 Extension agronomy program, says Freyaldenhomen.

''.Misery Loves Company , ; • Maybe you are aware of the fact that our,cotton fertilizer tests In 1952 did not. correspond with the results of'most previous years. Last year there was somewhat less profit from high nitrogen and more profit from higher potash. Now I am find- Ing that the University-supervised tests are showing about the same thing. In other words. In addition to knowing your soil deficiencies, the fertilizer needs of different kinds of crops, you also need to know whether you are going to have a wet or dry year. Complicated, Isn't It?. It backs up my theory that V would ertillze every year but I would make somewhat moderate applications, . — because plant food deficiencies are not always the limit- ing factor In higher crop production. ( Cotton Variety Test ; The results from cotton variety tests are variable every year, too. For instance, I can say that Delta Pine 15 is one of the very best cottons grown in-tms country but I'can seldom' say 'that"if leads the test"'or It is always In the top three." . • As a very Important bsTjroduct of COLDS' MISERIES?

(Courier NEWS I'hoto) by the University, at Osceola, we get the results each year of a variety test. These tests' include total seed cotton and lint yields, staple length, gin turnout, bolls per pound of seed cotton, earliness, and total dollar valu? per acre. i You think Delta p 1 rie Fox Is early? Seven varieties out ot the sixteen at Osceola showed more earliness than Fox. (There might be some reason; however, why vou might prefer Fox to any one offthe seven.) ' George Kale's DPL 33 was on the top of the list this year In dollar perace value. ' If you are-interested in the details of this test, write for them, call us. or better yet, corno to sec us. Fair Warnine I hear of one farmer who saved 35,000 bushels of 'soybeans for seed sales and they are germinating 40 per cent.

I would send a pound ot my soybean seed to the State Plant Board and have 'them germinated so ! would know for sure what kind of seed I had.
