Rates of application recommended from soil analysis will vary from a minimum of 30 to as high as 75 pounds per acre depending on organic matter content of the soil and other factors. When to Put Out Fertilizer Frequently your county agent Is asked, "When should I put out my fertilizer for cotton?" Back before the high fertilizer lecommendations of today were put forth, the Delta Experiment Station at Stonevllle, Mississippi (financed over half by Federal funds) ran tests on fall and spring applications of nitrogen on cotton. Results from continuous tests from 1937-44 on seed cotton yields at Delta Experiment Station, Stone' ville, Mississippi, with fall and spring applications show that the average increased yield per acre for all forms of nitrogen applied in the fall before planting was 532 pounds of seed cotton and the average increased yield per acre for all forms of nitrogen applied In the spring befoer Ipantlng was 554 .pounds. This gives a slight advantage for spring application but the extra yield for spring application over fall is small on loam and clay soils.

One of the major functions of the Agricultural Extension Program is leTdership training and development. In South Mississippi County. there are many competent leaders. A large percent of the leaders take an active part in developing .and promoting the agricultural program for the county. There are more active volunteer leaders participating in the Farm Bureau phase of the agricultural program tJian in any other leadership activity. In South Mississippi County, there are 75 community and county leaders active in the Farm Bureau program. These. .leaders serve as officers, do membership work, develop programs and policies for the organization. Many of the farm organization leaders are active in Church and serve as officers in cooperatives, corporations, and other business activities, too. Opportunities for developing leadership are found in all phases of community life as well as county, state, and national activities. Some leaders are spoken of as "natural born" leaders; however. In most cases they are men with ability who have taken the opportunities for leadership growth that came their way. Church programs in Mississippi County carry on an extensive leadership training program for both young people and adults. School clubs and special training , programs in class work put on by \ the schools also contribute mater- 1 ially to the training of leaders for i the various activities carried on in | Mississipp County. 4-H Clubs Over 1,400 boys and girls are enrolled in the 34 4-H clubs in South Mississippi County. Thirty-two of j the clubs are organized as an • extra - curricula!' activity in the schools in South Mississippi County and the other two are community clubs.
