FRIDAY, APRIL », 10W BLTTHBTTLLB (ARK.)' COURDMl WBWI PAGE ELIYTO REVIEW--FORECAST Work Begins On University Cotton Project FAYETTEVTLLE — Lowered costs and increased efficiency in cotton production are being sought in a project recently begun by the University of Arkansas Agricultural Experiment Station. The project will study the influence of combinations of cultural practices on the yield and quality of cotton. Charles Huglies, junior agronomist, is project leader for the work, which will be done cooperatively by the Agronocy and Agricultural Engineering staffs. Results in recent years have indicated that the most efficient return from any one practice may de- epnd on the level of several other practices followed. Therefore, the aim will be to seek the optimum level of several practices so that when they are combined they will permit the most efficient cotton production. Growth Factors Cotton investigations already completed have revealed a number of ways in which the growth of the cotton plant may be altered. . The area of soil available vertically as well as horizontally affects the growth and fruiting habit ot the cotton plant. Other factors that greatly affect growth and maturation of the plant include nutrients available, moisture levels and inherent differences among the varieties. Earner data showed a serious yield reduction when planting was delayed until the first of June. However, recent findings indicate that some varieties are much more adapted than others for late planting. Test results iome varieties have shown that yield almost much when painted in June as the better varieties do when planted in April. If ways of, increasing the yield of late-j)lantod cotton can be developed, such plantings may prove to be more efficient, since the greater weed control costs and stand losses that are associated with early plantings would be by-passed to a large extent. In recent years, many fields have been replanted needlessly because of insufficient information on what constitutes a "stand" of cotton in the various field- situations. The new project was designed to determine what would be an optimum "stand" of cotton under different fertility, levels and for different dates of planting.

James* Pemiscot County Agent There May be a Soil Bank "If" a soil bank bill is passed such as recommended by the President you can be ready to take advantage of it. Decide now on the field you may wish to place in the soil bank next fall. Plant early beans in the field and you are all set to go for a fall seeding of grass or grass legume mixture. If no soil bank bill is passed you still can seed to vetch or vetch and rye for cover crop, Pea Aphid and Green Bug- While no serious infestation of pea aphid in alfalfa or greenbug iii small grains has been found in Pemiscot County as yet, it will pay us to keep on the alert. The pea aphid is a tiny green luse that sucks the juice from a Ifalfa and causes it to become yellow. First cuttings have already been ' destroyed in some parts of South' west Missouri. If you find 20 aphids per crown that's enough to Justify spraying. If your field needs spraying em- I ploy a commercial operator to ap- [ ply 4 ounces of Parathion per acre. j We are not recommending that a ! farmer attempt to use parathion himself under any circumstances, j The green bug has shown in numerous small grain fields in south | Missouri. If you field of wheat or , barley looks like it has been drought or water damaged (yellowish color) look carefully on the plant for these green lice. Use the same spray as for pea aphids. Spraying is justified when you can count 50 or more green- bugs per linear ft. of drill row. Aim for a Stand of Cotton "I can't afford to gamble on getting a good stand of cotton. I'm planning to cross plow every row of my 300 acres of cotton in 1956." "You can see why I'm not in too big a hurry to plant while the weather is cool." Those were the words of a "big farm" operator with whom I visited recently. There's no average chopping cost to guide us but let's assume a normal chopping cost of $12. per acre then by cross plowing we net a V 3 saving that's $1200.00 on 300 acres. Farmers' reports every year since 1949 have shown a saving of Va to Va and no reduction in 5'ield fom cross plowing. A total of 168,732.160 acres of land and 2,364,000 acres of inland water are included within the state of Texas, BE INDEPENDENT...
