I Mr. Wixson ringed up' his plows I with a 14-Inch space between them liDKtvad of the rcgulHllon 38 inches I used by most farmers in cross plow- lil.ig cotton. According to Mr. Wlx- l«bn the shorter distances between • the plows enables him to plum • more cotton ami cut down on-chop ini! costs. The shorter distance also keeps • the top crust of the soil better • broken, enabling young cotton to • make a better stand, he said. 1 Mr. Wixson farms 105 acres on Itlie plantation and has cioss-en!~if- |vate<| -15 acres of cot Ion as a trial. •"They can say what they want to • about cross-plowing, but I think its • the coming thing," the vetercv.i • farmer: said.

So the Arkansas Agricultural ITxrjeriment station reports In a Corn seed treatment, tests rrom 1943 to i!H«. He planted corn seed which had been treated with several different chemicals at the Mnln Elation at Fayel.leville, the Rice riranch Station at StuUiptrt an t ] the Cotton Branch Suustatiou at Claikednle. Hybrid seed corn which luid b»cn treated with Ar- asan and Spergon gave from 5 to 10 per cent belter stands and yields than untreated corn. Since Ihe severity o. r the seedling diseases of corn varies from year to year donendinR on weatliur ami other, fuctqrs. treating the. f-:ee,| may be 'of great value In some cases and not in others, the bulletin points out. However, since treatment costs little it is recommended that it be used cvev.v year as a form of insurance. Another bulletin 'just published gives Ihe results of the corn va- rietal lest s carried on in 1!M6. at tlie main station and Iho four branch stations. The lesls again showed that while many hybrids yield better than onen-pollinated varieties, not all hybrids are better than all varieties. They nlso showed that hybrids adapted to one section of the state may not cio well in another section.
