PAGE EIGHT BLYTHEVILLE (ARK.) COURIER NEWS FRIDAY, OCTOBER 21, 19M REVIEW-FORECAST Cotton, Beans Are Surprising Picking Is Quicker, Beans Some Better Cotton harvest moved swiftly along in this area during j the past week and soybeans just began to make initial moves] toward the market. A couple of mild surprises were connected with both] fact*. I A U. S. Department of Com- nlng slightly ahead of estimates Vegetable Oils Crowd Butterfat Missouri Survey Shows Sourh's Product Is Being Accepted The Missouri Cotton Producers Association reports that a recent study made by the University of Missouri in which 325 people were interviewed shows that frozen desserts containing cottonseed and soybean oils have been accepted by the general public as being equal and in some cases superior, to similar products made from ImUcrfats. New Service For Bank Here Farm, Management Department Added Blytheville's First National Bank has laid groundwork for a farm management department, E. M. Regenoid, bank president, announced today. J. E. Ewing, who was wilii Doane Agricultural Service of Si. Louis, has been named head ot the department. Mr. Ewing will act as farm manager for persons who either can't act in that capacity or who don't live in this area. He will select tenants, secure maximum rentals, collect rents, The nutritious cotlonseod and;pay taxes, keep buildings In re- soybean oil products are popular j pail", manage crop rotation, secure because they are Usly and also! soil test ' recommend fertilizer, merce report showed Mississippi County an even 44.000 bales ahead of last year's crop as of Oct. 1. 100.000 Out Bureau ol Census of USDC said 100000 bales had been ginned as of Oct. 1 this year while only 66.000 had been ginned by Oct. 1, 1953. While picking conditions have been practically ideal this year, they could not have been much improved over the dry 1953 fall. Possibly some increases in hand labor and a known increase in mechanical pickers has led to the speed-up. 70 Percent Through At any rate, many farmers and farmer-glnners said they saw the crop as about 70 percent out as of Thursday and they felt they were moving cotton fast. These first truckloads of soybeans have held some surprises In that they have shown yields run- Many farmers had their be tins pegged in the 10-14 bushel per acre column where early reports have shown them to be running about five bushels over those figures. Dockage Reported Complaints from farmers hold budget. Lower price was house- given by users dockage have arisen <il the vegetable fat product as the reason they continued to use It.

They point out that the beans are in good shape and are clean. Dockage, they say, arose when beans were combined before peak maturity was reached and this fact, together with green, second growth beans, led to higher moisture content and thus made necessary some pretty steep price reductions. They're predicting Inter beans probably will not carry such high moisture ratings. Pemiscot Notes By W. F. James. Pemiscot County Agent Not A Soybean Ycu- Ogden beans sure haven't done T«ry well these past two dry sea- ion*. Some folks have told me they Just aren't going to plant another Ogden bean, Well, now you and I know about these ogdens. We remember ns far back as 1850, 51 and 52 how Uic ogdens produced Irom 25 to 45 bushels per acre. In those years the ogdens stayed green right up to frost. They didn't pop out because the Irost seemed to stick them In the pod. Last year and this year the dry weather held on till late and in practically every field there were areas where the beans were completely dried up and there were other areas where the beans had more moisture and stayed green. The rains came then the green beant started to grow and they dry beans popped out. Dorman beans gave a pretty good account of themselves these past two seasons, despite the dry weather. They ranged from 15 to 30 bushels per acre. Now these benns have a fault we don't like—they tend to lodge or fall over. In years of heavy rainfal lin September severe damage may result from this fault. This year the Jodging caused very little damage. Insect Stored Grain I looked in on 2.000 bushels of stored wheat the other day and there was life. Yes. something was moving in the wheat and that Isn't good. Weevil damage can result in heavy loss If not slopped now. Fumigation of stored grain Is Just as important as using fertilizer or using the right variety. There's only a short time in which fumigation will be effective. For best results temperatures should be between 65 and 75 F. for fumigating Use well known brands of commercial fumigants and follow the directions on the container. Fumigate only on a mild stil! day. Level the surface of the grain. Be- sure to have at least six inches of wall space clean above the. gram. Apply the fumlgant evenlly over sprayer or sprinkler. Cover with a tarpaulian. the surface of the grain with a CAUTION: Two porion.s should do the fumigating. The persons applying the material should wear iir> approved mask. Do not spill material on clothing or shoes. If any is spilled remove clothing and wash .skin with soap ar.d wat- , er immediately. Leave the bin clos- Fisher, Addle Permenter, Charle.-. A.

The interviews were with people from many sections of Missouri. In this same University study, consumer preference is be ing determined for filled evaporated milk and aerated cream. Naturally, this trend toward replacing the fat portion of milk is of concern to dairymen. Particularly is this true since the price of milk Is based primarily on the fnt portion of the product. Regarding this situation, agricultural economist S. F. Whltted, who is in charge of this study, points out that for it great many years nearly all ol the milk fat has been utilized for human consumption. But vegetable fats can be produced more cheaply. At present prices the manufacturer can separate tin; buttcrfat from Ills milk, replace it w,ith vege- Lnble fat and make a profit from date hereof. lo answer n com- plainl filed against them by Dell Gin Company, and E.

At the same time, says Whltted, consumers a re provided with a product at less cost which they evidently accept as a suitable substitute. And anything which widens the spread between the prices of vegetable fat and butterfat will tend to encourage the growth of this practice, comments Whitted. What about changing the method ot pricing milk? Give more weight to the non-fat portion! This has been argued from time to time. But Whitted points to the fact that only three-fourths of the present supply of the non-fat portion goes for human consumption. The remaining non-fat solids have been used for animal feed or wasted. Consequently they bring » much lower price. So it hardly looks as though the pricing program would be changed to one of basing It on the non-fat portion of milk. Carefully conducted experiments have fulled to prove that butterfiu isn utritionally superior to a carefully processed and vitamin fortified vegetable fat. On that basis, combining vegetable fats with milk solids to produce human foods cannot be condemned from a nutritional standpoint.

(From Soybean Newt) That's right, soybeans that produced over 100 bushels p«r acre, ac- cordlnK to a report we have received Irom F. Uryu, Agricultural Chemist for the Japan Soybean Association. Uryu reports that the winner of the 1951 soybean growing contest of Japan won the prize yield using the Akassya variety with 100.9 bushels per acre. Now it is unlikely that the winner of any of our state soybean growing contests will equal this record in the near future. The methods used by this Japanese winner are quit* different from our usual cultural practices. Here is how he did It. The inoculated seed was planted in a well fertilized seed bed on May '24. The soybean plants were lifted from this bed on June 15, topped back do just below the first compound leaf and planted 20 inches apart. Increased emhpasis on this type of research is necessary if breeders are to continue to be as productive in the future as they have been in the past. The general level of performance ol present day varieties is considerably higher than it was only a decade ago, and the development of new varieties that are superior to existing ones is becoming increas- ingly difficult. Therefore, it behooves us to accumulate basic inlormation that will enable us to do a better Job of breeding in the future. In this research we expect to accumulate information on such problems as: What are the characteristics that indicate two varieties will yield superior progency if crossed? What easily-measured characters tend to be associated with important characters which are difficult and expensive to measure? What procedure of crossing, selection, and recrossing is most efficient. How is resistance to important diseases inherited and what economic losses result from a given level of infection of each disease alone and in various combinations? What are the difficulties involved and what breeding materials and procedures should be used should economic conditions indicate an important shift in the relative emphasis placed on oil and protein in our breeding programs? and many other similar problems. The third area of expanded research is in the evaluation of genotypes in our germ plasm collection for disease resistance and other important characters. The need for this expanded work is clearly demonstrated by the fact I that we have no good source of resistance to two of the most important diseases, stem canker and brown stem rot- Also, preliminary evaluations of this collection indicate that it contains an extremely wide range of types with respect to compositional characters, seed size and quality, height, lodging, shattering, etc. Detailed and accurate information on the selections in this collection may prove to be of immeasurable value to the breeding programs of the future. In the expanded program, a research center will be established in the northern fringe of the soybean-producing states and one in the southern fringe; the existing centers will be strengthened, chiefly through the addition of subpro- fessional assistants to work with the agronomists and pathologist^; and the work in two of the 18 cooperating states will be increased. Seed Samples Available Although the expanded program will enable us to do a thorough job o{ evaluating selections in the germ plasm collection for compositional characters considered in our breeding programs, it will not be possible to evaluate them for special properties with respect to oil or protein quality or other chemical characterUtici. However, if soybeant that h»v« unusual or specialized chemical characteristics are sought In »nj of the research laboratories of industry, we will be happy to furni»h small samples ol seed from selections in the germ plasm collection for evaluation in these laboratories We appreciate the Interest and co-operation of the National Soybean Crop Improvement Council, the American Soybean Association, and the National Soybean Processors Association in the soybean research program and invite your continued interest in th« expanded program.
