FRIDAY APRIL 22, 1955 HI.YTHEVI1.IJB (ARK.) COURIER NEW8 PAGE SEVEN REVIEW - FORECAST On Missco Farms By KGITB B1LBBEY. Cotut? Ag«»t It's Warming Up- Soybean Chances Even though the government has announced that It will not rtclaaaj' fy ogden soybeans in 1W5 there continues to be many questions from farmeri on what type of yellow bean they can plant instead of ogden. The only practical answer to that, so far as North Mississippi County is concerned, is to }--.ant dorman. The dorman bean is yellow, ha« a heavy foliage, yield! almost the •ame as ogden and matures aboul 18 days earlier than ogden. In a good soybean season 1 think they will be about three bushels per acre under ogden in this territory. In extreme and prolonged drought years like 1853 and 1954 dormans have actually equalled or exceeded ogden in yield. Mr. Hartwlg, U. S. C. A. soybean researcher at Stoneville, Miss, recently presented a picture of dor- man soybeans grown on heavy clay •oil at the Stoneville station, yield- NOTICE My Off ice Now Located 122W.WALNUT (Blythevillt Federal Saving* & Loan Asm.

By presenting this information however we do not wish to suggest that th« 4orm»n will out yield og- den. They will not do so under normal growing conditions. Seed Dealers Death Evidently you farmers are going to kill the seed dealers. I never saw them complain so much. Aren't you buying any seed from them this year? That gives me th* opportunity to say that our agronomist and other specialist In Little. Rock have compiled their knowledge and printed two very useful leaflet* for you farmers. One of them is "Arkansas neld Crop Varietiea for 185S." For Instance It gives you recommended varieties' of corn, cotton, soybeans, and etc., for your part of Arkansas. The other leaflet is "Planting Rates and Dates for Arkansas Field Crops." These leaflets should be handy In any farmers file,' or tacked on the inside barn wall for future reference. If you would' like to have copies, let your county agent know. V-DltchM Recently a national farm maga- lin* quoted tome of our extension specialists like this,'"irrigated delta cotton needs a drainage system in the same field, saya Runyan Deere and James Qattis, Arkansas Exttn sion specialist."^ "Their reasoning: cotton yields IMS In very wet yean than In very dry years. If heavy ralni hit soils filled with irrigation 'water, your fields may become waterlogged un- IHS an adequate drainage system will remcrrt Uu water." That statement reminds mi of very low cotton, yields this county had in IMS and 1960. Do you re- 500 Bu. Dorman Soybeans at $3.50 per bu. 2000 Bu. Ogden Soybeans at .$3.00 per bu. H. C.

George Hale at Burdette says he has constructed enough small v-type ditches on his farm this year to qualify for about 11,000 in AOP payments. He and I both don't understand why a lot more of you in North Mississippi County aren't constructing this type of Held drainage, and incidentally collecting considerable ACP money for doing so. Recent rains should show you where v-type field drains are needed. Fertilizer Use W. O. Brown of Leacnville and Clifford Councille of Yarbro were the last two farmers lo step in the office and inquire about recommended use of fertilizers. Since Mr. Brown has elaborate irrigation systems set up on his farm his next step was to get fertilizer recommendatinos for corn that might approach 100 bushels per acre. Three dry years has made some farmers Question the value of commercial fertilizers. I would like to remind you that in spite of the Intense drought of 1964 we found a net profit of $8.75 per acre by using the correct fertilizer under cot- ton on eight separate and widely scattered farms in North Mis*ls«lp- pi County. Some of the less adapted fertilizer mixtures made less money on these farms. Some even gave a net loss. When I say a net profit of $*-'5 per acre, I mean that la the profit above the coat of the fertlllier, the cost of picking the extra yield resulting from the fertilizer and the proportional cost of ginning, bagging and ties. In the carefully supervised Ust and demonstrations this is the lowest net return these farmers have experienced in the three dry year*. Irrlatlon Knowledge Joe Ewlng let me borrow a book he has, entitled "Supplemental Irrigation For Eastern United States", by Rubey. Actually It Is one of the best, If not the beat textbooks on Irrigation for this part of the U.S. I was bragging on the book » johnny Meyer Just donated me one Johnny also thinks a lot of the book and furnishea a copy to a farmer when he does a major irrigation plan for him. p.S You can borrow our copy to read if you would like.

Steinsiek, Ally, for Dft 4/15-22-29-5/6 It Cuts It Harrows It Levels Four Rows To Uniform Height Something to Think About Bj GERTRUDE B BOL1MAN Count? Home Demonstration Freeze D»m«i« L. H. Burton, extension horticulturist, gave us this information on whit to do If the freeze damaged your shrubs or roses: "If the cambium foyer under the bark Is black or brown it Is an Indication that the shrub is dead or will die. Such shrubs should be cut back to good live green wood. "In many instances this will be to the ground. The quicker they are cut back, however, the quicker the live buds will be exposed to the sunshine and the sooner the shrub will become a new plant. "This will be true of climbing roses, hybrid teas, gardenias, Japanese euongmua and many other shrubs. Do not prune them back if you are in doubt but wait until new buds begin to grow. In some instances buds may pu out and then die later," Garden Insects Insects are often responsible for gardens getting off tc a slow start. All plants In the garden should be watched closely for damaging numbers of insects. Among the first insects to be the garden »re cutworma. Control of this pest should start with- a good seedbed prepared aa early before planting *a possible. Many of the worms are destroyed by natural enemies. If cutworms have been t problem In the garden, it should be baited before sitting tomatoes, eggplant, peppers and other plants. The bait la made up by mixing one heaping teaspoon of parts green with one pound of bran and three-fourths pint of water. This should be spread Just at dark In the evening. Other early invaders of the gar den are aphids or plant lice. They re small, green, soft-bodies Insects and may be found "on almost any plant In th« garden, Nicotine sulfate (Black-lenf/40) will control them (f applied when temperatures art above 70 degrees. Bean leaf beetles attack young b*ana causing a delay in growth, Cucumber beetles, both striped and 12-spot, often kill outright stands of young, cucumber*, cant loupe* and watermelons. Cryolite dusted on the beans am! cucurbit crops will control these pests. Flea beetles may Attack ling plants of, several gnrden crops causing many small shot-holes in the leaves. Flea beetles are usu ajly black or black with whitish stripea and jump when disturbed thui giving them their name. Cryolite Is also a good insectl cldi to ua« for their control. Later on, susceptible crop? should be watched for such Insect as Harlequin cabbage bugs, potato beetles and tomato hornworms, Important Papers Just before spring cleaning in good time to go through desli drawers or other places where im portant business records or othe papers valuable to the family an stored. If you already have a system fo keeping Important documents, few hourn cleaning out and reor ganlzlng will make It. possible t know just where Important one •r« stored. Some discarding once year Is necessary, but It pays t b« sur« you .will never need document before you consign it t the wastebasket. Most families safeguard Insur ance policies of all kinds, wills stock certijicates or bonds, am other obviously Important papers These should be in a safe depos: box or a fireproof safe. Other , papers are v a 1 u a b 1 enough to warrant safe storag include all records of military service, such as discharge certificates, orders to active or inactive duty, commissions, records of medical treatment or disability, and papers connected with claims lor benefits. Save the duplicate copy of the Federal income tax form and attach It to the copy of. the withholding receipt furnished by an employer. Keep all Income lax copies at least five years/Some families keep them indefinitely and report that it has been good business for them. Stubs of social security cards also are Important in case the card you carry with you for Identification is lost. Other Hems to keep safe are property deeds, titles, bills of sale, leases or mortgages n real property. These should In- lude the title or bill of sale for car. The deed la a burial plot s another valuable family docu- lent. Birth certificates for ench mem- er of the family, naturalization, .ri^gc, divorce or adoption pa- ers also should be safely and con- enlently stored. Finally, I advise North Missis* Ippl County homemakers to have t least two copies of a list of icse documents, telling where ley are stored. Keep one list In fireproof place but have n riupli- ale handy in your home for icier- nee. It'i Time To Plant first plantings of some of le warm weather crops such ns ush beans, pole beans and sweet orn In the northern section of le state. Try mulching at least a portion f the potato and tomato patch. ,pply four to six Inches of straw, eaves, sawdust, or new-mown hay. This mulch eliminates need for ultlvation and conserves moisture or thn vegetables during hot, dry weather. Fertilize trees. Start the spray ichedule when roses begin to grow Watch them closely for signs of disease or insects. Plant water Hies. Combina 3 Pre-Planting Operations Into 1 Efficient Job With The . . .
