S. surplus stocks of wheat are gone. We have just about enough to last until the 1867 harvest." —This is a direct quotation from L. H. Simerl, Extension Economist, University of Illinois. This should be some of the best -and biggest news to reach Mississippi County farmers in I years. Agricultural editors are having a field day writing about the disappearance .of our wheat i surplus, — and other small grains too... : Karl HobsoiV, Extension Economist, Washington State University; - writes,- "The world shortage of wheat that I warned about in Farm Journal two and a half .'ears ago is now here — and it will likely last a good many; years." Population explosion is chief cause, he says. Also, 'world income and buying power has increased. Secretary of Agriculture has increased farmers wheat acreage .allotments .15 percent on two'occasions recently, - making a total of 3D percent for next years crop. The market is strong. Our farmers like to grow wheat. As far back as 1960, I had - a record of 1373 farmers in North "Mississippi County alone who grew some wheat. In'the past 10 years the county wheat acreage has ranged 'and - increased • from 10,610 to from 23.3 bushels up to 37,1 bushels per acre. So, two wheat short - course meetings will be held in North Mississipi County, -Blytheville REA building, on Thursday afternoon, Setember 1, and at Leachville school on Friday morning, September 2. We have niucn good information for anybody interested in wheat. I have obtained several specialist and informed .people to help- present the story. They include Ruel Nester, Extension Agronomist; Dr. Al Woodard, Extension Marketing Specialist George Morris, Area -Chemical Specialist; Harry McDaniel, County A.S.C. Office Manager, and our Own staff. There will oe three hour meetings, with two "coffee and ,donut breaks" on the hour. I asked the sixteen (16) wheat buyers in North Mississippi County to furnish the. refreshments. They agreed. • . .. Some subjects include:<(1) Outlook, demand, markets, population changes. .(2) Wheat allotment s, increases, support price, cross compliance and planting wheat on 1966 diverted acres.: (3) Varieties, research, planting dates, rates and methods'of planting.

MM- worm Jim Wallace Assistant County Ajent We hope the MUworm population and damage was at a peak last week. The latter part of the Week and first of the egg and larvae counts were down. There was some poisoning on heavily infested fields last week. Our scouts reported tw.elve fields poisoned in the Leachville area. These were out of 156 fields scouted. It seems that the farther west we go in the county the greater the bollworm activity. This is something unusual for Mississipi County. This outbreak was partly due to the beneficial insect activity being slowed or stopped by weather conditions. But now, the beneficials are back on the job. On Tuesday of this week ants consumed more bolworm eggs at Dr. Whitcomb's lab in Manila than at any other time during the year. Scout .your fields carefully this week. Poison if necessary, but don't upset this beneficial insect activity by poisoning fields that really don't need it. Small populations of bollworms have been found in some early planted 1 soybeans. If you suspect their presence : in your fields, go'into the field, shake 1-feet of row on each side of the middle over the middle, count the bollworms, repeat this in 10 random selected places, It Would be better if a 3' wide cloth was used to shake the insects so they won't fall in cracks or hide in-trash. When: 10 or more worms- are found on 30 feet of row, poisoning is justified. Foliage feeders such as. green clover worms and cabbage loop- ers should not be confused with the bollworm.

The 1965 cotton crop provided about 1,925 million pounds of oil and 2,725,000 tons of cottonseed meal.

On trie same basis, it will require the soybean oil from 1,561,600 acres, or roughly the soybean meal and oil from Vk million acres will be required to replace the cottonseed. The July crop estimate shows a soybean acreage- increase of 2,338,00 acres over last year. This is about the- normal annual 6 to 8 percent increase experienced, in the last few years. About 2-3 of this increase will be required to replace the cottonseed oil and meal, leaving the remainder expansion.
