FRIDAY, SEPTEMBER IT, 1954 BLYTHEVILLE (ARK-)' COURIER NEWS PAGBfLlTEN REVIEW «"> FORECAST On Missco Farms By H. H. CARTEE, Assistant County A^ent Secretary Benson's announce- the pasture seeding. ment that farmers will be free to grow any crops they wish on their diverted acreage in 1955, with the exception of wheat, corn, cotton tobacco, peanuts, potatoes, and commercial vegetables, certainly eliminated a lot of headaches, did n't it? New A.S.C. Practice A relatively new A.S.C. practice just approved the last few weeks may fit the needs of many North Mississippi County farmers needing winter pasture for livestock. This practice is the establishment of a vegetative cover in the fall of 1954 in drought disaster areas. It includes the seeding of oats, rye, barley, or ryegrass either alone or with one of the following legumes: hairy vetch, doark vetch, crimson clover, or Austrian winter peas. The seeding can be pastured or harvested for hay or silage, but must not be harvested for grain or seed, if federal payment is to be received. The federal cost-share payment is around $4 per acre. Unlike Practice 18, which is the old practice of the establishment of winter annual legumes (vetch, winter peas, etc.) or annual "ryegrass as a cover crop, payment will not be,limited to that acreage in excess of the average of all such plantings for the past three years. • ' Farmers planting alfalfa, permanent pastures, temporary pastures for winter grazing, or winter cover and green manure crops should check with the A.S.C. Office on compliancer equirements for federal payment, if such, payment is desired. cotton Defoliation The following farmers have defoliated same cotton. You may be interested in checking their results: . . Clyde Young, Blytheville; Lu- verl Gaines, Yarbro: Charles Rose, Roseland; Bill Wyatt, 40 & 8: Charles Armstrong, Dell; J. C. Ellis, Armorel; Armorel Planting Company; Gene McGuire, No. 9; E. L. Hale, Armorel; and Alex Curtis, Manila. Charles Rose was able to increase his mechanical picked cotton by one grade — from strict low middling to middling — by defoliation. On the government loan basis, middling, 1 1/16 inch cotton would sell for $6.75 more per bale than strict low middling, 1 1/16 inch. The cost of defoliating was $3.50 per acre. j Mr. Rose's conditions for defoliation were satisfactory. His field was comparatively uniform, having little second growth and few over-mature areas. As a result, defoliation results were good. Too often, however, under normal methods of seeding, the small grain competes too severely with the pasture seedlings, crowding them out. Research at the University of Arkansas reveals a. method of seeding the small grain which materially increases the, chances, of the pasture seeding without appreciably reducing yields of the grain crop. The secret is to drill the small grain at a 14-inch drill spacing rather than the common 7-inch spacing, or by broadcasting. Seeding rate of the small grain is not decreased. In experiments with oats last year, no significant difference was found in oat yields seeded at a 14-inch drill spacing, 7-inch drill spacing, or broadcasting, where the seeding rate per acre; remained constant. All three methods of seeding yielded around 75 bushels per acre. But the growth of the inter- planted pasture grasses was a different story. The 14-inch spacing of oats resulted in about twice as Farm Bureau Names Resolution Committee Time is fast rolling around when Farm Bureau members all over the nation will be getting their heads together to think out their 1955 Farm Bureau policies. plants as the 7-inch spacing, and almost three times as many as on ;heb roadcast plots. Furthermore, the grass plants on the 14-inch plots were taller and more vigorous. In Mississippi County, county) President Bill Wyatt already has named his giant resolutions committee, which is broken down into seven subcommittees. All committee members will meet in Marked Tree's American Legion hut at 7:30 p.m. on Sept. 23 to convene with representatives of the State Resolutions Committee.

Extension Service, Department of Commerce and University of Arkansas College of Agriculture.) The mean temperature for the past week, as determined from the records of 19 stations, was 76 degrees which 'is exactly normal. Weekly means ranged from 79 degrees at El Dorado and Stuttgart, to 71 degrees at Fayetteville and Gilbert. Extremes ranged from 43 degrees at Gilbert on the morning of the 12th and 13th to 102 degrees at Arkadelphia on the afternoon of the 9th. Arkadelphia has had 59 days Green Manure Crops Nine varieties and strains of vetch and five of winter peas were included in green manure crop performance experiments during the three-year period 1950 to 1952 ' at several locations in Arkansas. Results of the thpee-year study can be summarized as follows: 1. Based on results at Marianna, the recommended vetch varieties for eastern Arkansas include hairy, Auburn Wollypod. Oregon Wollypod, Doark, and Williamette. Recommended winter peas include Romack and Austrian winter. 2. The average nitrogen production per acre for three stages of growth (turning under) during the three-year period was for hairy vetch, 95 pounds; Auburn Wooly- pod vetch, 96 pounds; Oregon Woolypod vetch, 90 pounds; Do- ark vetch, 83 pounds; Williamette vetch, 79 pounds; Romack winter .peas, 66 pounds; and Austrian ." winter peas, 49 pounds. 3. Greater yields of organic mat; ter and nitrogen can generally be expected from vetches than from winter peas. 4. Hairy, Auburn Woolypod, an< Oregon Woolypod vetch have more winter hardiness than Doark an Williamette vetch, or winter peas (Doark vetch is noted for its reli able seed production.) Pasture Establishment : A common practice in establish .ing ,a permanent pasture is to ;make the pasture seeding in a • small grain crop, (wheat, rye barley, oats). The small grain serves a? a nurse crop for the pasture seeding, helping to keep down weeds until the pasture plants are established. . Too. the small grain crops, har- vetsed in late spring, give some returns which offset the cost 01 deegrees or higher. The average rainfall, as determined from the records of 18 stations having a measurable amount, was 0.34 inch. The greatest weekly total was 1.41 inches at Pine Bluff. Augusta, Batesville, Flippin, Gilbert, and Little Rock had no rain. Scattered local showers the end Stanley Research Carpenter, Hud s on Wren, George Haley, Charles Moore.

Very little HAY was harvested, and meadows deteriorated further- during the week. A considerable acreage of WINTER, GRAINS was seeded — much in the dust preparation - although both land and seeding were this week were of some benefit but most of the State remains critically dry. Weather Has been ideal for harvesting cotton and rice but too dry for extensive seeding of winter grains. Cattle marketings continue heavy as most pastures are furnishing little or no grazing. A considerable acreage of early CORN was harvested during the week, with very low yields everywhere. SORGHUMS have made slowed considerably because of extremely dry soils. A few scattered fields of OATS are up to a stand. COTTON harvest is in full swing. Mississippi County reports that most mechanical pickers were in operation during the week. Some hill cotton is being pulled. Low yields are reported generally. Much cotton has shorter staple than usual. Harvest weather has been ideal. RICE harvest is m full swing, with very good yields reported on most of the acreage. Late varieties are maturing rapidly. Scattered showers and cooler weather were 'beneficial to some fields of SOYBEANS, although /ery poor yields are still expected on most of the acreage. St. Franis County reports that some beans have been harvested. Cooler weather has aided the :rowth of irrigated fall crop SNAP BEANS in Crawford County. Local showers were helpful to STRAWBERRIES in White County. Many CATTLE are still moving to market. There were a few reports of liquidation of entire herds. Most PASTURES are about gone and beef cattle are being fed both grain and roughage; some dairy herds are on full winter rations. There is a strong demand for Hays Sullivan, Charles Rose. H. C. Knappenberger, Stanley Carpenter, W. H. Wyatt, H. F. Ohlendori.
