During the past decade, - -the volume increase has been almost identical as measured in actual cash prices and in "constant" prices—the Department of Agriculture's yardstick based on 1957-59 average prices. Bugging the Bugs sf By W. F; .James s Area Extension Agent g Caruthersville, Mo. SWith the coming of warm feather the insect population Including mosquitoes begins to luildup. 3Have you noticed the tiny §>ft bodied green insects in the Jew buds of your roses? These Slant lice or aphids can be con- foiled with Malathion. S Aphids are likely to attack any young plants or new shoots On perennial shrubs. '£ Chewing insects such as beetles and worms may show up any time now. These insects can be controlled with S e v i n (carbaryl) or. Methoxychlor These two chemicals are, very effective in controlling chewing insects, yet they have a lower toxicity for humans or warm bloodied animals than most other insecticides. : ^ Slugs are not bugs. While slugs are not insects they do damage similar to that done by insects and need to'be brought under control. These slimy crawling creatures come out at night and chew holes in your newly set petunias or other flowers or vegetable plants. Slugs seem to thrive on the regular insecticides mentioned above. They; must be baited with a material containing met- aldehyde. One such product put out by a commercial company is called "Buggeta." Use as directed. Caution — while slugs are attracted to these pinkish colored pellets so are children. One mother called me last year and said her little boy put one of the pellets in his mouth. Use care in putting out any of these chemicals. May 8-10 the Time 1 To Plant Cotton? ^Research at the Delta Cen- tjer, Portageville on planting Iptes for cotton shows cotton planted May 8-10 in 1965 and 1966 made higher lint yield than cotton planted April 29th-May 6th. The average lint yield per acre in 1965 for the three varieties; Auburn M, Deltapine 45A and Stoneville 7A, planted April 29 to May 6 was 1264 pounds iXPECTED ATI ON HEAVY | | MODIHTE f"] LIGHT . AVERAGES! AUIL liWAY'15 Greater than normal precipitation is the Weather Bureau's forecast for states in the Midwest, the northern Plains and the Great Basin, compared to 1368 pounds of lint for the May 8th to 10th planting. In 1966 average lint yields of these same varieties were 1127 and 1190 pounds respective ly for planting dates as above. Of course there is no fixec date as to the best time, for planting in any particular year but past records have shown that best yields of cotton are generally obtained from plant ing cotton before May 15th. * * * For planting after May 15th Missouri Experiment Station records show that Auburn M cotton has consistently outyield- ed other varieties on all soil types. With all equipment calibratec and ready to roll it will be possible to plant our cotton crop in a little over a week. All things considered, extra care exercised in all phases of preparation for and planting cotton will certainly pay well in 1968. In other words, rushing the planting job at the expense of doing the best possible job could be expensive this year. WEEKEND STRETCHERS The new John Deere 8- and 10-h.p. Lawn and Garden Tractors.

Phone PO 3-4434 FARM NEWS Review and Forecast Bollworm POBTAGEVILLE, MO. — A ton research and promotion five-year research project aimed at developing a variety of cotton resistant to the cotton bollworm has been started at the University of Missouri Agricultural Experiment Station's Delta Research Center here. Entomologist Keith Barren- dorf and Agronomist W. P. Sappenfield will use a $94,235 research grant provided by the Cotton Producers Institute for the project. The Cotton Producers Institute is a cotton . belt - wide, non-profit, grower-directed or- sanization which supports cot- from a voluntary $l-a-bale contribution by cotton growers. The cotton bollworm is a major cotton pest throughout the cotton belt. Chemical control of the insect is extremely difficult and expensive. And, worse, the pest has developed resistance to insecticides in several areas of cotton production. A resistant variety would reduce production costs by eliminating expensive chemical treatments and increase yield and quality by reducing damage from this pest. VA/I * I /*L • I *} Which Chemicals?
