FRIDAY, MAY 16, 1988 (ARK.) COURTEH H&lfg TARM NEW! AND REVIEWS U. of A. Reports DDT Will Control Cotton Bollworm } Experiment Results Published; Toxqphene Is Less Effective FAYETTEVriAE - Experiments conducted in 1951 on the control of the cotton bollworm show thnt treatment with DDT at the rate of otK-haif pound to the acre applied every four or five days will control oollworms. provided applications are started early enough. Toxaphenc •ppued at two pounds to the acre or dioldrin at one-half pound wer« somewhat less effective, and calcium arsenate was even less so These results are contained in a report on "Control a! Cotton Bollworm and Boll Weevil jn 1951." by Charles Lincoln and Francis wi'l- iiams. recently published bv the University of Arkansas' AfrricuUural Ex|jprimenl Station. The experiments were carried on in JerTer'on Lee. and Pjilaski counties. For effective bollworm control applications must be starlet) when Jour or five small worms and additional eggs are found on lOfl. terminals, the report mokes clear when the first application was delayed wore than one week after that oVne. treatments were ineffective in reducing damage. Thus, careful scouting of cotton fields is essential in bollworm control, the authors point, out. A high degree of natural control of bollworm eggs and small larvae was noted in fields where insecf- *cides had not been used earlier For example, in the Pine Bluff area, almost no tolhvorm dama-e to squares was observed during July on a farm on which no insect- cldes had been used. On an adjacent farm, where several applications of aWrin spray were made during June and July without rerard to insect populations, dainape to squares was obvious in the latter part of July. Such bollworm damage to squares was common following early insecticide applications, regardless of the material used. The 1951 tests showed thnt « number of insecticides were effective in controlling boll weevils and bollworm included gamma BHC. calciu marsenate. toxaphcne. dieldrm. aldrin. and heptachlor. In Lee and Pulaski coutles. heavy infestations of boll weevils j n late summer were controlled, and fair to good crops were made, on cotton that came up in June.

Mrs. Brej'sachcr's flock of between 500 nnd 700 hem net- tec! her a profit of $1,486 lost year. (Courier News Photo) Proper Poultry Management Nets Blytheville Woman Total of $1,486 The poultry operations ot Mrs 3. A. Erpysacher illustrate economic possibilities and desirable pi-ac- i tices with a laying flock. She lives | at 527 North 10th Street, In Blythe- t ville. Mrs. Breysacher keeps a laving flock of 500 to 700 hens. She started in the egg production business tack in 1945. That she has continued in It. indicates that she has found It to be a profitable sideline to her household duties Last year she cleared S1486.90 above feed, chick and medicine cost. This re- I turn was secured despite an out-' break of Newcastle with a loss of) over 120 birds and several weeks ofi production. Fresh eggs are sold for a premi- ) um to regular customers. Most of the hens, upon being culled or replaced, are sold dressed to egg customers. Some of the management practices recommended by the Agricultural Etxenslon Service which Mrs. Breysacher carries out are: (!) Starts chicks early. Pullets nre in full production by Sentem- bcr 1st. (21 Raises pullets on pasture—in summer ranges hclters. (3) Keeps pullets separated from old hens. (41 Keeps hens Jrer/ of lice. I Experiments show that lice-free hens lay more eggs.) (5) Vaccinates for Fowl Pox when pullets are 8 to 12 weeks old. (6) Vaccinates for Newcastle. (This is being followed as H stand- ard practice tins year !or the first time, as a result o( last year's outbreak of Newcastle. <7> Worms pullets and hens at intervals of 4 to 6 months. (8) Culls out unthrifty pullpts while still on range. (They seldom mature into profitable layers.) (91 Keeps the laying flock culled for profitable production. (A production of near r,0 per cent is necessary for profit.) (10> Uses lights on the. laying flock during the short days of late fall and winter. (11) Feeds a balanced ration. High feed and water consumption Ls encouraged. (121 Provides proper and adequate housing. Water Should Be Kept Off Leaves For the Sake of Garden's Health - So far as the outdoor garden is concerned, modern research has established .the validity of the old gardener's maxim: "Give a plant a drink when it's dry." I But phytoyntholcgisU. or plant | doctors, are insisting that so far as j possible water should be applied I directly to the soil, without wetting the leaves ot plants. Drops of water thrown by a sprinkler scatter the fungi, they explain, and when the leaves are damp at nightfa".. darkness and dampness combine to favor the spread of disease. A good soil holds both water and H.D.CLUBMEMOS kj Mr«. Gertrude B. Holimkii (Horn* Demonstration Aj<-nli Friends in Need The Home Demonstration County.

The signs point the way to each farm, stating the distance. These signs are placed at Jjic cross roads. Tho club also ^jfcns to place signs leading into frie community. Another community project that the Blackwater ladies arc planning to do Is lo remove old lenls In the Waddell pecan orchard nnd beautify the spot for a roadside park. The ladies feel that it Is an Ideal place for a park since there Is plenty of shade nnd a water pump there. It is also located close to a grocery store, which would be nice for the convenience of tourists.

If yovi want to ch»nge your method of ranking it, then try this recipe. We think it Is very good. Wash and cap berries. To 1 quart full of berries add 3 cups of sugar »nd boll 5 minules. Remove from Move, «1<1 3 more cups of sugar and boil 10 minutes (rapidly). Pour at once into an open kettle crock or pan and let stand 2 days or more. Once in awhile when the berries are standing in the open kettle one should stir them. They will get nice and thick which makes (hem better. One can pour a large amount together to thicken but only a small amount should be cooked at one time. One quart at a time is best. While berries are cookint; they should be. skimmed. Can cold. Time cooking by the clock. When you are ready to can the preserves, sterilize your jars. Pack the berries into the hot dry jars. Seal jar with a lid that is hot and dry. Do not process the preserves. Packing Ihe berries cohl keeps them from rising to the top of the jar. air at the same time. These are held in spaces between the soil particles, called "pores." when there is an excess of water, air is driven out, and the plants suffer for lack nf it. This occurs in gardens when water stands on the surface; and ts the reason why quick drainage of excess water is so important. | Lack of water, on the other hand.] is also harmful to the plants. A balance between air and water must be maintained. A plant will make the best root growth when it is drying the soil down. When the soil is soaked, and the excess drains away quickly, fresh air enters the soil to take the place of the water. The roots reach out for (he water as the supply diminishes, and vigor- oils growth results. Every watering should be thorough enough to wet the soil as deep as the roots go. at least. This cannot be done by sprinkling a brief period every day; that is bad watering practice because it moistens only the top few inches of soil and encourages root growth near the surface where the soil dries out quickly The soil must he soaked deeply whenever rainfall Is to provide abundant water. That means, when less than one inch each week falls on the garden i n summer time. Let the hose run without a sprinkler, so that the water falls upon & board which scatters it and prevents washing out, a gulley; or use a can- vas hose which leaks all airing it.s length and serves ns a portable irrigation ditch. In graving melons and tomatoes many amateurs find that by sinking a tile into the ground near each hill before the seed is sown, they can' simplify the task of watering. Water poured into the tile is carried im mediately down to the deepest roots. and this often results in exceptional growth. Classes Are Scattered At Houston University HOUSTON, Texas Wj—University of Houston students can do their studying this summer under a Southeast Texas pine tree, or in tropical 'Guatemala, Mexico Citv or Paris.
