FAQ1 TWBLYl BIYTHEVTLLB (AUK.)' OOCTJIBR OTtWl FRIDAY, SEPTEMBER 28, 1988 RE VIEW»»° FORECAST On Missco Farms Bf KEITH BILBREI, Cwntr AfMt My, my, how proper fertilizer programs are paying off Ms year on cotton! Is this the year you decided not to use fertilizer? We supervised picking several of oar seven different fertilizer plots this week. On the B. B. White farm, forty pounds of nitrogen per acre made about S56.00 worth of extra cotton per acre over the plots with no fertilizer. It was 80 per cent open. (Fertilizer, picking and ginning expense of the extra 154 pounds of lint not subtracted.) 8040-40 treatment is making eien more but ihe most profitable treatment can't be figured until all the crop is picked. J. N. Smotherman's soil test, and recommendation was for 40-0-40. This treatment out yielded *ie check plots 366 pounds of seed cotton per acre, on first picking. Eley Hood's recommendation was for 60-30-30. The nearest thing to that in our tests was 40-40-40. in other words. 330 pounds of U-1212 per acre. This treatment made 333 pounds extra seed cotton a first picking. A Better Fair The District fair is better than usual. Vast, improvements may be seen in the hog and livestock barns.
