Raise Less Cotton at Less Cost Peruvian Finds in Valley Study; Value Their Land Almost as High Top land in the irrigated cotton, growing- northern section of Peru is valued at around $250 to $300 an acre but the crop grosses in cash scarcely a third the amount Mesilla valley growers obtain from Lheir land, E. A. Labartho, supervisor of the northern extension service district of Peru, figured out with County Agent John A.ugustine today. Mr. Labarthe is in Las CTUCOF on an extended visit to irrigated areas of United States whore he studying methods of produrtimi.

"We raise a long A t u p l e roltmi down there." he explained," that gives around a t w o inch .staple." The Peruvians, also do tint use inches us ti measuring u n i t , so t h a t may 1« off a l i t t l e , he .snid. j But HS near a.-; he could figure j it ofMmml they raise between 000 | nnd "00 pounds of this long staple to the acre and t h e i r bales run around 600 to 700 pounds and average about $100 ;i bnli\ It costs about $32 to produce a bale. Top Mesilla valley In ml produces I two 500 pound bales or belter per :icrc bringing in an average of S2fiO for the two hales, exclusive of seed, a n d , nf course, running t h e acre into higher figures if the two bak: totals p»s.srd. Production rosls in t h e valley, apparently, are a bit higher than in Peru.
