Gattis, extension agri- i cultural engineer in charge of j drainage and irrigation work, as-1 sistcd your county agent in. plan-1 ning suitable irrigation systems for j Charles R. Coleman, Lester Gill' and Albert Banks, Tuesday and Wednesday of this Week. Anyone Who expects to use irrigation in 1956 should make plans. now so that they will not have to rush in laying out the program for • their farms. There is no cheap way to develop an adequate irrigation system but it is generally less expensive wherever surface water is available. Wells are expensive, as a rule but they insure a good water supply. Irrigation on most years will increase the yield of cotton, corn and soybeans, but the increased yields does not always pay big dividends on the investment. | Some farmers may make'irriga-j tion pay in increased yields while' others may find it desirable to wait till more guess work has been removed from the use of extra water in this rain belt area. Every farmer should first learn to apply most of the other practices that tend to increase yields before going into irrigation. Pemiscof ACP Opens '56 Plan Farmers Signing Up Now For Various Measures OARDTHERSVILLE — Community committeemen are now signing up farmers in their respective townships for the practices needed under the 1056 ACP program according to C.
