-PAGE'EIGHT BLYTHEVILLE, (ARK.) 1 COURIER NEWS DNEKIIDF 'Improvement In Qualify ' Noted In Various Sections, In County Mississippi comity, I !i e world's largest • cotton producing county, has not only made persistent gains In yield per acre but has also made .marked improvement In the <iual- .ity of cotton through the one variety g(u community plan. This •practice, begun seven years ago, has spread until they are now well scattered throughout this Invge . county and it is believed (hat another year will show even niore" one variety cotton communities. When started, n •mimbcr of Die larger planters who operated customs gins secured mid planted a few tons, of certified seed from which ciop seed was supplied to (heir customers either by exchanging seed for seed or by selling the customer seed at the oil mill price that day. This practice has grown to such an extent that good seed is available to practically 'every farmer 'in the county at no actual extra cost to him. Certified seed Is secured as often as is necessary to keep the supply of seed not move than three or four years from the breeder. Most of these one variety gin communities, have not had the form of a formal organization,' flic planler-glmier having taksn the lead. Last yoar, three communities were set up on an or-, ganized basis, Mlssco, Lost Cane and Dyess. Different communities arc using a variety of Iheir choice with D. and P. L. in the lead. Stonevill.e and Ro;vden are used by some gins. Very little of nny variety except those three, which are recommended by the State Experiment Station of the Extension Department is grown in the county, C. C. Ijingston, of Number Nine, was one of the fust to pioneer in this /movement and .was one ot the first lo boast a 100 per cent D. and P. L. community. 'Several large planters with private gins mho produced only one variety have provided a source of good seed which has helped materially In keeping up the finality of <he seed. Approximately 75 tons of certified seed was p'anted :this spr'mg, with 60 toas being D. and H L. and 15 tons of Stonevllle 2B. A few tons of Rowden \yas used. Most of these beed were planted to supply seed for the farm .\nd for their gin customers with no thought of'having them state certified. Several .hundred 'acres of boih D. and P. U 11A and Stoneville 2B will be state certified this yenr by a few purchasers who hope to supply some of the certified seed purchased each year. R. C. Bryan, of Osceola, has been 'producing state, certified D. and P. L. HA. for a number of years, Carl Wallace and W. E Wallace, of Bly- thevllle and Charles Rose ot Roseland, are applying for state ccrtl- ' fication of Stoneville 2B.
