(Courier Ni-ivs rluito) Southern State Tests Infra-Red, Gas Brooding MAGNOLIA — Infra-red 'poultry brooding may have several advantages over gas brooding, but fuel economy is not one of them, tests ! on the poultry farms at Southern j State College here Indicated this i week, ! Ufiln^ a specially installed meter to measure the amount of power u.sfd In brooding, Robert McCullough, f'rescot I'sophomore and student poultryman at Southern State, came up with conclusions on the currently controversial subject: 1. It costs the college two cents chick to brood with gas for nine \ttks. 2. Cost of brood ing chicks wit h lecti icity Is three and one-thirds cents each. 3. Cost and installation of e!ec- ric brooders is lower than for g?,s brooders. 4. Etnrtric brooding equipment is i if?r to clean ami adjust. 5. Mortality rate in using infrared heat, compared favorably with ;e of gas heat. 6. Moisture in the litter, a major problem in poultry production, v is appreciably reduced in the lest using infra-red heat. Mortality rate for the infra-red brooding test was 3.4 per cent. Mortality rate for the gas test was 4.6 per cent. McCullough added that electric power consumption could possi have been reduced by the of additional thermostats.

Tests on weed control in cotton conducted at the CotUm for both p re -emerge nee and post-emerRCMCR treatments. In one test at the Delta Substation, .sodium cyanate applied as a post- emcrgeMce treatment also gave satisfactory control. In the work with soybeans, hath water-soluble and otl-boluble diui- tros were used for pre-cmergencr treatment. The oil-soluble material pounds of water-soluble dinitro Calcium cyanamkie applied broadcast just prior to germination of Die corn also .satisfactorily controllec weeds and grass. The publication includes record on the amount of weed and grass control obtained from each of tli chemicals; their effects on cotton -soybean, or corn stands: and croi yields from the plots.
