Seed Treetetil Yields Are Increased And Earlier Planting Of Crop Possible Vepare Ground Now For Early Jarc/en, Horticulturist Urges Arkansas home gardens should be ilanned for year-round production, .ccording lo Earl J. Allen of the University of Arkansas College of \griculturc, who suggested making ilans of the garden as it will be in prlng. summer, and fall, showing Reports from county Extension agents of Arkansas Indicate that not all cation seed for plantin his slate/is being treated with Jercsan. Work at ' the Cotton Branch Experiment Station at Marlanna and the Main Station ac Fnyetleville, as well as similai studies in every other cotton grow ing area of the United Stntes, have demonstrated that for a cost of from 8 to 15 cents per ncre tht yield of seed cotton can be increased an average of not less than 8 per cent. Workers in some states report that yields can even be increased not ICES than 15 to 20 per tent. Cotton seed ticatmen also allows earlier planting, and (replanting is frequently unneces after long-''periods of cold, wei Iwciilhcr. The advantages ol seei llreotnionl are so great that farm |crs should never do without it. Failure to treat cotton seed, o lat least a part o'. the failure, mn: Ibe attributed to the shortage o llabur since the outbreak of the war, land the rush of spring work on Ifarms every year. For these rea- Isons it is most important that fnr- Imcrs realize that it is actually bei- Iter to treat cotton seed during janunry and February, before the [spring rush, than shortly before [planting time. It was formerly believed that early treatment of cotton seed [might result in seed injury. How- ifver, it has been shown that seert- ng diseases are actually better Dntrolled if treatment is made :-.t I least one month, preferably long- ler, before planting. It has also [been .shown fhni. rnfton spp Ibe kept from one year to the next I without danger of injury to germi- 1 nation, if the seed are not damp I when they are treated and if thei I are kept in a dry, properly veutilat- |ed storage place. Experience has also proved tha skin injury to workmen handling Ceresan dust seldom occurs during cold weather; Injury result- more frequently , when the dust i | left on skin moist with perspira , tiort. Consequently, it is advisabl I to conduct- all seed treatment [during cold weather while ouldoo I temperatures remain below 70.'do [ grees Fahrenheit. It must, be emphasized, howevei that treating cotton seed durin cold weather does not eliminat thorough washing of workmen i skin with soap and water, and th use of some sort of dust masi- Ceresan is highly poisonous if tak en internally, inhaled into th lie different crops for each season. !e said one-hall acre of ground should te provided for the average size family garden, "Now Is the time to properly lire- pare the ground for Arkansas spring ;ardcns," the extension horticulturist says. "Apply manure at tlie rate of 10 to '20 tons per acre early In the winter, followed by deep plowing. Then broadcast 5-10-5 or 4-12-4 commercial fertilizer at the rate of two pounds per 100 square feel two weeks before planting." Allen advised planting early short- season crops in one part of tlie gar )caris, okra, sweet potatoes, melons, squash, peppers, encumbers, nnd egg- ilnnt. Make the fall garden more certain by clean cultivating the. space during July and August Mint was planted to spring crops, or cultivate a low, moist area that was saved for this purpose. Keeping the ground free of weeds and maintaining a mulch will help save moisture, Allen warns. Fall plantings of root crops such as beets, carrots, parsnips, and turnips should be made for storage In cellnv, pit, or mound. Also planl Ihe short season and cool weathei crops thnt were grown in the spring he says. Crops like Chinese cabbage, spinach, lettuce, and radishes may be transplanted to or seeded h .the cold frame for early winter rise. Formers To Hove Less den nnd long-season late maturing Small Arms Ammunition crops in the remaining space, Nitrate of soda should Ije applied as a side-dressing to leafy crops In cool rainy seasons, he says. For year-round garden production Ihe specialist suggests the use of a cold frame or hotbed to produce early plants, nnd then make successive plantings of such crops as let- ice, radishes, spinach, mustard, ects, carrots, and beans, at, 5 to 10- intervals. Plant two or more va- eties of peas, cabbage, tomatoes, ml cantaloupes that will mature ve lo 10 days apart, In order to engtheu.the season, and use 10 to 5 kinds of vegetables for the same urppse, he says. Be sure to grow different leafy rops all through the season, such lettuce, spinach, and mustard in he spring; Swiss chard, New Zeal- nd spinach, and 'collards for sum- ner; and Chinese cabbage, turnips plnach, and lettuce for fall. Produce vegetables during the ummer months by growing warn vealher crops such as tomatoes Fanners who have had a rather Inrge allowance of small arms ammunition since AugiLst were back on a quarterly allocation system nrting Jan. 1, according to an nnouncemcnt from the War 1'ro- uctlon Board. The move, which means less ain- iiinition, is (he result of incrcas- d military demand. The War Pro- :iictlon Board has stopped pro- uction of civilian small arms am- m nil Ion, and manufacturer's tocks have been frozen to permit .llocatlon to essential civilian us- rs. Sales'. to hunters have been lalled until further notice. farmer Produces Millel For Seed Grower At Leachvillc Finds Another Way To Get Two Crops Yearly So fnr us is known, the Rev. E. H.

In doing tills he IMS' proven to our [urmers still another way lo set two crops per year from our rich ttnllii Innd, Kcitli Bllbrc.v, county iiyent, snld. •1'iie Rev.

On June 30. thirty acres ol tills land wns rcplanlrd to Arksoy 2D13 soybeans. Because of real dry wcatli- gs in quantity, or if it is al- owccl to remain too long on mols' skin, consequently all reasonable precautions should be taken. Fanners who treat their cotton seed at home with barrel treater will no doubt prefer to use 2 pe cent Ceiesan. With power-drivel machinery, especially if It. is prop erly equipped \silh dust removers the 5 per cent or new improve* Cercsan is preferable.
