'WATER HOLES'—Poorly-drained spots in a field—don't spell failure for soybeans, according to Rex .Warren (right), a Blytheville farmer. Warren saved a 100-acre field of Davis .soybeans by using a seed protectant called Captan, a fungicide: Warren shows results of the protectant to County Agent Keith Bilbrey. Both are in one of the field's low spots. Where the fungicide-coated seed was not used, Warren had to spot plant.

Even then much:of the : cotton- came through • .the cool - nights, the ' heavy rains, and the overflow's in surprisingly good condition. Fungus diseases are taking a heavy toll in some fields In a test with ever so many fungicides and a few systemic insecticides the differences in treatment have be'en negligible prior to Thursday, May 23. With this type year some of the in-furrow treatments with fungicides should begin to show up.

Extension Agent r North Mississippi County •• Mulches not only have a very ^beneficial effect upon plant "growth, but a mulch also re- educes the labor required for '^garden maintenance. * A good mulch, properly ap- *phed at the correct time, serves Smany functions. The most important function of a mulch Jjis the conservation of water. s A mulch readily permits the ^penetration of water : into the "soil During periods of heavy strains, it checks the full force of Ithe droplets, thus reducing the I/surface run-off, and permits the fwater to sink gently into the, >*soil. It also protects the soil ffrom the frying effects of the |wind and sun, thus preventing jfthe evaporation of moisture gfrom the soil surface; it On soils protected by a Imulch; there is never a hard, i'baked crust such as found on a ?soil; that" is exposed to the. sun's. ,5'rays. Even (taring periods of « intense s u m in e r heat a n d Idrouth the soil under 'a good |mulch will remain cool and . ( | A good mulch is also one of tthe most effective means of ' " weed control. There are few weeds that will push through a thick mulch and those that do are spindly and weak. • .Some of the mulching mater ials may be of such organic matter as leaves, old cotton hulls; well rotted sawdust grass clippings, and rice hulls. O'KEEFFE HONORED CHICAGO (AP).— Some : students- from s'eyen countries received degrees, diplomas and certificates in 1967 from The School of the Art Institute and The Goodman School of Drama. • Among recipients ; for honors was Georgia O'Keeffe, internationally famous artist who first studied art at the Art Institute school in 1907.

PO J-6645 ever thrips migrate to the young cotton. . Up to now the number of thrips found are relatively small and the ones.found are generally the banded specie which, as a rule, is more beneficial than harmful. In fact, the banded winged thrip" feeds on the thrips that feed- on the young cotton plants or mites and other small insects. Scouting still pays dividends to the farmer who expects to keep operation costs to a minimum. As the wheat matures, the thrip population will likely go up on the cotton. The Agricultural Extension Service, recommends that cotton be poisoned whenever harmful insects are numerous enough to cause economic damage, but there is some risk*- of creating a bigger problem than you eliminate with the first poisoning. * * * Visit your ASCS Office for information on replanting cotton. Your ASCS payments, are an important part of your income. Therefore, follow the rule book on the acreage required to Be planted. If you can get cotton up by June \ it stands a good chance to make, a crop. As. you know the last two -years.has been poor cotton' y e a.r s and good soybean years. However, some of us can recall when the soybean yields were low and the cotton yield'.were high. For late planting use the earlier varieties such as old style Rex, Rex\Smpothleaf,-and Stoneville' 213.' . The average per acre yield of soybeans for Mississippi County in 1953 was 14.1 bushels; 1954-14.2 bushels; 1963-17.0 j bushels. ! For most years the weather • factors are more nearly in favor of either cotton .or soybeans rather than good for both. Cotton yields are usually highest on moderately hot temperatures and moderate rainfall, whereas soybeans can stand lower temperatures and excess moisture much better than cotton. The decision that one makes can greatly affect his income. The price on cotton is edging up and the price of soybeans has been on a slight decline. Too,- many farmers have sold the acreage planted to cotton for fall delivery. Fishing Grounds . The name Grand Banks is given to the 500-mile stretch of shallow water off the southeast coast of Newfoundland. It is one of the finest fishing grunds in the world.
