John Stephens, county agent in Crittenden County, inquired today for our suggestions on increasing soybean yields. Our suggestions maybe of little help but we will respond today. Oortion Barnes, our Extension Entomologist, advises that the weevil I sent him was a willow bark weevil and not a boll weevil, as one of my formers suspected. We have the same trouble here every spring. My wife even caught one on.her laundry a few days ngo and had it bottled up for me when I got home. .1 .X-r'-: Thnnk Scd, we just can't find boll weevils this far north.

You Haven't Seen Anything Yet You folks In Mississippi County can get an Insight Into what big time commercial broiler production Is by visiting the Kings at Manila.

Cotton Fertilizer Tests Mr. Carter, our assistant county agent, has worked out an excellent fertilizer testing program for cotton. The test Is designed to show from yields which element or elements are most needed and which combination of elements is m profitable. The Biythevllle Fertilizer Corporation is cooperating by furnishing the nrcfssary fertilizer. The test is designed for older 4-H Club members but \ve would be glad to h;wc adul.ts participate, too. If you are interested, talk to us about it. i Cntton Mechanization Conference I thoroughly agree with most of j the conclusions drawn at the re-1 cent belt wide cotton mechanization conference. Here are some of their conclusions: (1) Delinled seeds give more uniform stands. Machine delinting is preferable to acid delinting, but the latter wcrks satisfactorily except when long periods of cold, wet weather occur alter planting. 12) Thick and uniform stands not only give better yields but increase mechanical harvesting efficiency. About 40.000 plants per acre gives maximum yield. This is about three plants per loot of row length. (3) Apply fertilizer two inches to the side and two inches below seed for best results. Thus can be done with a disc opener on the planter. (4) Thc rotary hoe is one of the most valuable pieces of equipment available to cotton farmers, and one of the cheapest. It eliminates much of the hnnri hoeing, without an extra operation. Recommended speed is four and a half to five miles per hour.
