The actual row width recommended at this late date of planting will depend primarily on the weed problem in individual fields and growers' equip ment. Drilling in 10 to 20 inch n the season, moderate temper- rows would be satisfactory if atures and a late frost. In general, Arkansas yield date hare shown a. decrease in soybean yields when planted in July. When considering .late plant* -ig, closer rows may he advantageous. Research data have shown there is not real advantage in growing southern soybean varieties in rows closer than about 32 inches when planted at recommended planting dates (April 25 to June 15) However, rows closer than this would be expected to produce increased yields when soybeans are planted after about July 1. Soybeans, because of reduced day lengths at this late date of planting, will not have time to make normal vegetative growth before flowering is induced. Consequently, this extremely late date of planting will not have Tht County Agent is not worth much anymore. (Eds. note: «st time we looked he was oing fine.)

This county larvested only three-hundred- and eighty (380) pounds of lint that year and only H.2 bushels of soybeans per acre. Mr. Ray Price of Blytheville has kept the most complete «t of weather records of any man [ have ever known. He has donated these records to the Coun ty Agent's Office. The Arkansas weather report for 1954 was summarized something like this: "April rapidly warmed into the second highest on record. The drought continued in June with a two and half degree above normal average and the heat reached its apex in July, the hottest of any previous July on record. The extreme temperatures of July carried over into August to make it also one Of the hottest of record. 1954 was the second hottest summer since weather records have been kept.

I'm not smart enough to tell you you ought to contract part of your soybean crop, but surely we would agree this is a favorable price and much higher than we would have predicted earlier.
