MALOCH Mississippi County Agent Research Expansion The research committee in Mississippi County has been very busy during the past two weeks trying tn .locate land For an expanded . search program which is scheduled > to go into effect in 1956 on the alfalfa substation. From a small beginning in 1948 with alfalfa plots, the work has been expanded to Include about 1.5 acres of cotton plots, 5 acres of alfalfa plots, 7 acres or soybeans, and 6 acres of rotation studies, small grains, etc. Plot work takes much time and effort to get accurate results. 4-H Records Many boys in South Mississippi County have done good work in 4-H clubs during the past year, but they fail to tell enough about it in committee, or mail a written .statement to the Mississippi County Farm Bureau at Blytheville 'or Osceola. _ Kluaiiis Farmers Nijfht Joe C, Harding president of the Arkansas Farm Bureau, was principal speaker at the annual farmer's night program, a few days ago. Mr. Hardm was invited Lo appear „.] the program by the program committee and A. G. Brickey, pres- their records. Extension agents could be of much greater assistance to 4-H members if the youngsters would keep them better informed on their progress and needs in their demonstrations. What Changes hi Farm Program? About 100 lenders will attempt to answer this question in policy development discussions in Mississippi County during October. Every individual member of the Farm Bureau is encouraged Lo take part in the discussion, according to Hays Sullivan, president. Anyone who has an idea on the . . , - ident of the club.

In j Estimate your corn losses in the | f i d inii iclju-a your picker so as to reduce these to a minimum. . To estimate shelled corn losses j on 42 inch rows, count the num- ; bcr of kernels for each S 1 ^ feet of : row. Divide ihis number by 20 and you have the bushels of shelled; corn lost per acre. For Ear corn losses on 42 inch ruw-. collect the ears from 133 feet 01 row. This is 1 '100 of an acre. Welsh the ears and multiply by 100. Divilde by the weight of a bii.siiel of ear corn (1Q Ibs.). This mvt?s bushels of ear corn lost per. acre. S Five percent loss is satisfactory . for a picker under average condition?. It could be worse with severe wind damage or corn borer infest ui ion. Inaccurate driving and too much speed waste corn and cause clog- '.,'1112. The tougher the corn, the closer the snapping rolls should be. Extremely dry corn with excessive trash picks better with set screws or extra lugs on the snapping rolls. If left on in normal or tough corn, these extra lugs cause excessive shelling. Worn rolls also cause excessive .shelling- and they clog repeatedly. Welding beads of metal on smooth areas helps roughen them a^'iin. Increase Your Wheat Yields The question often comes up as to what .soil treatments can be made to increase wheat yields after the wheat is seeded. The two treatments with greatest possibilities are barnyard manure and top dressing with nitrogen. The weakness of the manure treatment is that most, farms simply don't have enough of it. The number of tons per acre which should be used depends upon the soil involved and past management, including soil treatments made at time of seeding. The desirable rate of application of manure on most soils to yet top yields will likely be about six tons per acre and maybe as great as 10 tons per acre. However, if the manure supply is limited, it's better to spread it at a smaller rate. For example, 30 tons per acre on 10 acres would give more extra bushels of wheat than the same 30 tons at 10 tons per acre on three acres. Straight nitrogen fertilizer can be usod any time from prior to wheat seeding until growth is about four inches high the next spring. Therefore, if enough nitrogen w;is not applied this full, there, is still time to put it on. The advantage; of making the application by top ] dressing this fall likely outweighs j waiting until spring. Amount of. nitrogen to use depends upon the j soil and other fertilizer used at ' wheat seeding. On the average, injure that it takes an application of 3 Ibs. of N thus reducing yield per acre. On [lie T. R.

The Cole Brothers are shooting for a 50 bu. wheat yield. The United States Senate has sat us :i court of impeachment 12 to raise one more bushel of wheat. This means that -15 Ibs. oi N are ! needed for 15 bushels more wheat j than the land would raise without it. The fallacy oi' the Idea of one extra bushel for each three Ibs. of N is thai it can happen only if there is ample phosphate, potash. lime and a,U other nutrients available. If these other elements are needed and have not been supplied in an adequate amount, then it is necessary to cut down on nitrogen.
