Plant Board Runs Cottonseed Tests Germination Good In Spite of Drouth, Officials Disclose Last Summer's drouth apparently has not affected the vitality of Arkansas cottonseed, according to a report released this week by officials cl the State Plant Board. Seed saved before the rains seems almost uniformly good, the report stated, mid of several thousand samples tested to date only a few germinated less than 80 per cent ant! most were 85 per cent or better. Several samples from fields which received moderate Injury from 24-D spray have germinated normal- iy, the report said, but officials of the board pointed out that It would be unsafe to conclude from this thai all such seed Is fit for planting. Officials of the Plant Board stated that samples of cottonseed Injured by the spray should be sent to the nearest Plant Board office assure proper germination of the seed. A small handful of the seed should be taken from various locations and depths in the bin and placed in seperate packets, and sent to the nearest Plant Board office by the fastest means. Tests are generally started the day the s?eds are received, the report said, and can usually be completed in from four to six days Re- Ports of the tests will be wired If requested by the owner. When seed is sent to the Plant Board for testing It Is required that the owner state whether the test Is for the owner's information of for the sale of the seed. Tests made by the Plant Board In previous seasons tend to show that cotton in Arkansas may remain in the field during long spells of bad weather without losing vitality, the report said, and that it in ginning and storing of wet seeds that causes low germination.
