Then Stake and Prune Pldnts Tfce largest crop of tomatoes possible in a given space is grown by staking the plants and pruning each to a single, stem: Tills Is easy to do;~but not as easy RS some beginners may think. It does not increase the yield per plant, but reduces It. It enables more plants to be grown In Email space, climbing instead of spreading out on the ground. But it calls for drastic pruning, as long as the plant develops, and will fail rather messily If this pruning Is neglected. The space saved Is Indicated by' the fact that plants pruned to & single stem can be spaced a. foot apart, and double stem plants 21 inches apart, while most plants that lie on the ground require four feet each way. Tills applies to varieties of nor- j rnal vine growth, which are the only kind that should be staked- and pruned. So-called determinate varieties, of which the stems stop growing aftre they reach a certain length, while the plant devotes nil iU. energies to ripening the fruit which has set, should never be pruned, and get no benefit from staking, but they may be planted as j Josely as 18 inches apart, and al- \ owed to spread on the ground They >ear a good carl crop, but oveyr a ihorter season than the older, lat- :r varieties. ; Need Constant Attention Keeping tomato plants pruned ind tied to stakes or a fence needs i constant attention. At the Joint ! where each leaf grows on the main ! stem, a branch will develop, and, this must be cut or'pinched off before it is four Inches long, otherwise its removal may weaken the plant. If allowed to groy, secondary branches will develii from it and soon all effort to kc* the plant within bonds will have & tie abandoned. A lew days' negleit of pruning may spoil the plants! To grow n two-stem pint, select one branch coming frornithe mnln stem 10 inches above the surface. .d allow that to grow, lilh main On Missco Farms Count? AffBt Keith J. Bllbrtj Maltrl* Frver How long his tt been since you have had a bad case of malaria (ever in your family? It looks to me like there Is a good possibility that Hie DDT sprny program being conducted by the State Health Department may completely eliminate malaria in Mississippi County if the people will continue to cooperate and sprny a majority of the homes. In 1945 there were 301 cases of malaria reported In Mississippi County. This was the first year for DDT spraying In Mississippi County. By 3W9 there were only six cases of malaria reported in this count)'. Isn't it wonderful to miss those horrible chills, fever, aching and loss of time from work? U V. Waddell at Blackw.iter says. "It has been several years since I have fainted from a bad case of malaria. I spray every house, on my place." Hay 1» Scarce O. B. Brown, our farm management specialist from Little Rock, was here last week and he snys that Hie hay outlook Is somewhat gloomy for the entire United States. It Is a known fact that the alfalfa hny production will be the shortest here in Mississippi County that we have seen in maybe 25 years. stem nml branch will have to be pruned regularly. Single stem plants can be supported by a heavy cord stretched from a suitable tall support, and anchored to the ground near the plant. The stem as It grows can be twUtcd about the cord. Twine Will Do Two-stem plants may be lied with soft twine, strips of cloth, raffia or special ties made of wire Imbedded in paper strips! Use a loose loop around the stem, to avoid constriction ,or cutting. H you have any need for extra liny or have land you do not know what to do with, what about broadcasting soybeans and cutting them for hay? John Stevens nt IJell Is doing that. He called me last Friday and asked how many bushels of Ogden sobcans should be drilled per ncrye for a hay crop. The recommendation Is to plant from two to three bushels per acre, when broadcast for hny. Otootan, Laredo and Red Tanner are three good hny beans. Ccrlltlfrt Boybcans Russ Crmvcll nt Lcachville Is certifying 60 acres of Dortchsoy 2 soybeans this year. Let that be a reminder to get your application in to the State Plant Board soon It you nit; tfoing to certify soybeans In 1950. !/*<•]< or Farm Management? As much as 15 per cent of thn cotton ixcrengc has been replanted In some communities of Ihe county. Bill Wyivtt at Number Nine ls one of the few men who have not had to replant some cotton. When r asked him why he did not have to replant, he gave credit to two farm operations. He ran a lot of water furrows with a Ford or Ferguson tractor and middle buster through water and low places that mules rind farm labor would not care to go through. Then, when the land dried enough, he ran a rotary hoe over nil his cotUm. The rotary hoc has helped to control the first crop of weeds and grass while the land was still loo wet to plow. It also broke the crust and helped additional cotton to come through. I still think the rotary hoc Is one of the most vnlunble tools on Mississippi County farms.

More Fertilizer There seems no end to the fcr- tillzre question* this year. Yes, In •> normal year corn will give an iven greater yield response to nitrogen applications than cotton. Corn has le« need for potash :han cotton and It Is safer to say n IhLi county that corn needs extra nitrogen only then It Is to say cotton needs nitrogen only. Corn can be sidedre-^sed with nitrogen until it is knee high. When sldcdresstng cotton or corn with granular or powdered fertllk- sr, try to get It deep enough to be In contact with moisture and deep enough that future plowing* will not disturb the fertilizer or shear off Ihe inns.? of feeder, rook that will be In the band of fertilizer.
