FRIDAY, MAY 31, 1946 BLY.TIIEVILLE (ARK,)' COURIER NEWS Cross Cultivation Idea Spreads Fast Many Mississippi County Cotton Men Report Economies. Cross cultivation of cotton In Mississippi county is fast gaining the interest of growers and this year, aurlciiUural officials estimate between 25.000 and 30,000 acres' will be cultivated In tills manner In contrast lo (he old practices. The main advantage in cross cultivation, it was explained, lies In the fiu't that less hand labor is required for hoeing, Fanners are also finding Unit cross cultivated cotlon is yielding about the same as cotlon cultivated In Ihe normal manner. Cross cultivated cotton requires only one-lilth of the hoeing labor required for normal cultivation. Another factor encouraging the practice is tlml il does not call for the purchase of any new equipment since regular cultivation equipment of one kind or another is used. The Gray Brothers of Promised Land arc cross cultivating about 200 acres this year. H. A. McCann ol Roulc 1, Manila, is using eiijht- inch buzzard wings to block out ana cross cultivate his cotton. Sam Fincher of near Lost Cane planned on using disk scrapers to cross cultivate most nil of his cotton. Taylor Freeman of Dell is cross cultivating some.

Implements, soil type and soil condition. Leaving the hill 10 to 15 inches wide is an error because this increases hoeing cost, choppers will invariably chop ofT one side of the strip and leave an uneven cross row to cultivate, and if a wide strip or hill of cotton is maintained through the summer it reduces effectiveness of cross-cultivating, according to Keith J.-Bllbrey, agricultural agent. For best results the cotton should be planted flat or on low beds. The rate of planting is one to one and one-half bushels per acre, depending some on the germination of seed. Cultivation with the rows varies from two to six times. 'Cultivation across the rows should be made twice. Most farmers recommend lirst, cultivation with the row; second, across; third, with the row; fourth, across; and the balance with the row. Flows should be set so .is to throw as little dirt as possible in cultivation. £ Police Recover More I War\Bonds and ^.earf ^'" Were'Stohnin* Sherwood A.
