«H5AY, JULY T, 1950 - BLYTHEVILLE, (ARK.) COURIER NEWS PACK MINB li of A. Reports On Weevil Work Professor Isely Tells Of Studies and Tests In Agri Publication rAYETTBVILLE, Ark., July 7— "A satisfactory control of the boll Weevil and the cotton aphid is «'ell established by experimental work." So slates Professor Dwight Isely of the University of Arkansas College of Agriculture In a publication released recently by the Arkansas Agricultural Experiment Station. In the bulletin, entitled "Control of the Boll weevil and the Cotton Aphid in Arkansas," Professor Isely traces the history of weevil Infestations in various parts of the state in the last 30 years and gives the results of research work conducted by the Experiment Station since 1923. From this he draws the conclusion that the choice of .the insecticide to use is a relatively simple si.'obtem, whereas proper tlnKlg of the insecticidal applica- tJPE and the coverage secured determine their success or failure. According to the experiments cited, there are three Insecticides or Ihsecticfdal combinations which are effective tot controlling weevils They are calcium arsenate. 20 per cent toxaphene, and 3-5-40 (made up of benzene hexachloride, DDT • nd sulphur), calcium arsenate when used alone, tends to bulk iphid outbreaks, but such outbreak will not occur If It Is combined with 2 per cent nicotine In alter- late applications, or alternated with applications of 3-5-40. Climatic Conditions Important The effect of climatic conditions, nd especially of relative humidity and rninfall, oil the abundance of veevils Is emphasized. Regular iummer rain fall is essential for .he development of a weevil outbreak, Professor Iscly points out, and even In seasons which begin "avorably for the boll weevil drought will check Us multiplication. Such knowledge of effect of climatic factors is useful in anticipating periods of rapid increase and spread of weevils, he notes. Professor Isely states that application of insecticide should never be made un|css an injurious infestation is known to be present in the field to be treated. ''Useless applications are not only expensive, but may themselves be harmful, since the new organic insecticides tend to build infestations of bollworms and red spiders," he declares. Usually it is recommended that dusting begin when 25 per cent of the squares are punctured, and that a succession of applications be made at 4 to 5 day intervals until the percentage of injured squares is reduced below 25. Tile practices of preventive dusting of infected spots and using a trap crop of early cotton are also discussed. The work covered in this bulletin is the basis for the recommendations on boll weevil and aplild control ,.tade by County Agents in Arkansas and other personnel of the College of Agriculture. County agents have a supply of the bulletin on hand, and single copies may also be obtained from the r On Missco Farms County Agent Keith J. Bilbrey Reminder You might as well mark the calendar for your 4-H Olub children right now. Their Annual 4-H Club Rally will be held at Walker P.iiX Blytheville, Friday, July 14.

ClEan-Up Campaign Farmers are pretty well caught up with their chopping and cultivation so now many of them are cleaning up the farm. It looks good to see a man lake a bush and hog disk arid clean out his road ditches and field ditches.

Joe and family clean it out with hoes. I spent two hours with Hiram Wylts in the Huffman community last week trying to find an Insect in his colton but the 'thing I noticed most was his clean cultivation mid his program of eliminating Johnson grass. It looked to me like his fence rows were the cleanest part of his farm. Experiment Station Godfrey White of Osceola should run an experiment station. In fact, he is running .1-1 experiment station and a lot can be learned bv visiting his farm. He is cooperating with the local county agents and the College of Agriculture by furnishing his land, planting cotton and corn to our specifications, and carrying out a great many tests on fertilization and culture. Many of you would be Interested In the alfalfa research work being conducted on the Harold Ohlendorf farm by the University of Arkansas. This work Is progressing nicely and some very Interesting results have already been obtained. Any and all rarmers In the coun- (ty ar« invited to attend a visiting ay to sec the experimental work these two farms next Wednes- ay afternoon. The visiting hours re from 1:00 to 4:00 pm You hould go to Mr. White's farm first, "nlverstty of Arkansas representa- ves and both county agents will e on hand to explain the tests. Speaking of tests, we have experimental blocks in every com- nmity in the county this year. Most f them are on different tattnivtr reatments to cotton and com. with few rows left unfertilized. Charles rondon, Just South of Blytheville, 5 just one of many farmers who has large number of different fcrtill- r treatments to cotton and corn. Lewis Townsend at Manila put ut anhydrous ammonia on a cus- om bnsis this year. He has left a ew rows untreated on most every irm he worked on. If we can ac- umulnte and evaluate the results f these many tests this fall we will * In a still better position to ad- 'se 'you well In 1051. Insect Surrey Farmers kept me busy every day ast week scouting their fields for osslble cotton Insects. I don't know] vhy the unusual Interest because he insect population has been no vorsc up to date than In many nrevlous years. Because of the farmers' interest .nd apprehension. Mr. Malnch and arranged an Insect scouting school or Wednesday of this week for the iurpose of learning more ourselves nd to train vocational and veteran cachers further in Insect idenllfl- alion and advisory work. We start- d the tour at Wilson, and went Into he very southern part of the comi- y where a few • boll weevil were •resent late last year iind again his Spring. For Insect Identification and con- rol work, use your vocational and •eteran teachers, as well as your :ounty agents. They all have had ilmilar -training and are generally veil qualified to assist you. As a last suggestion, if you farmers don't learn the difference oe- ween cotton tleahoppcr and the title green Insect known as sharpshooter or Just learhopper, many of you arc going to worry yourselves sick and for no good renson.
