OCTOBER fl, 19M BLTTTIEVTLLE (ARK.)" COURIER NEWS PAGE 'HTNB Farmers Urged To Store Beans Lock of Commercial Jj. Storage, Box Car* * .Cited by ASA Official HUDSON, Iowa, Oct. 8.—Farmers should be prepared to store a Urge part of their soybeans if they e» , pect to take advantage of the government's support program for the 1950 crop, according to George M. , Blrayer, secretary-treasurer ot the : American Soybean Association. "The government's average loan on No. 3 yellow soybeans Is $2.06, but this Is only available on' soybeans for which adequate storage Is available," said Strayer. "There just is not sufficient com, merclal storage nor are the boxcars available to handle the record 274-million-bushel crop predicted . by the U. S. Department of Agri-, culture if the greater part of it is rushed to market during the next few weeks. "Most available commercial storage is filled with other commodities such as wheat and corn already under government loan. The boxcar shortage is the worst In years • due to increasing military move: ment and Industrial activity." : The government support price, ' based ou 90 percent o{ parity Sept. ~-1, Is 'an average price only, and • will vary in different localities. : There will be premiums for mois- 1 ture content of less than 14 percent. . But Commodity Credit .Corporation .'will make no payment for storage who" store their soy- On Missco Farms Count; A sent Keith J, Bilbrey this year. "Farmers T beans should be well repaid," said Strayer. "There apparently will be no surplus of sobeans or of other ; oil crops. The increase is 'soybeans • this year has been offset by de""' creased production of cottonseed • an d peanuts. There should be a good market for soybeans if they are marketed in an orderly manner." Insecticide Test- Offer New to Farmers May Crop Farmers soon may have an important new crop to grow if evper- iments now under way with a new ^ Insecticide prov* .successful. - fcj' The Bureau' of Entomology and k Plant Quarantine of the U..S. Department of Agriculture has found a new , tnsecticidal chemical called leaves i. and. .items of „ the . ox eye, ""' * " By KEITH j. B1LBREY County Agent CoUanutA Germination Surely enough has been said about the possible scarcity of cottonseed for .planting in 1951. Enough has not been said about the germination, however. Would it be foolish tor a farmer to save several tons of cottonseed for next year and then find out ten days after planting that the germination of his seed was no good? ' It Is a simple matter for you to have your seed tested. Send representative sample of about one pound of your seed to the State Plant Board in Little Rock, at any time of the year and they will run a. germination test for you free of charge. Here is additional reason for this warning. The State ' plant Board reported this week, "Samples of cottonseed so far tested have run from 25 to 50 percent germination. High germination seed will be In short supply both in Arkansas ami in other states which grow varieties used in Arkansas." Good Records You ought to see the staff this office going through 4-H Club records and scrap books. We are trying to determine who the winners are in various 4-H Club projects and sometimes it is difficul to do. We can't afford to make a mistake in selection because 1 knew a county agent one time who sel ected the wrong boy In a cerUir project and the dad ol the offend ed boy gave the county agent a good punch in the nose. Speaking of 4-H winners, dii you know that Earl Leach ville used to be a good 4-H ,Clul member at Etowah? His county a gent at that time was Stanley Car penter. Did you know that James Niers rilelmer In the Farmers Bank wa ? county champion boy in 1939? Did you know that Mrs. C. Michael, President of the, Count Home Demonstration club Counci was a 4-H Club girl in Mississippi Did you know that George Gas sidy at Huffman was the count champion In corn production way back when Mr. whittaker was here? Do you remember that Gerald Cassidy, son of George, was a national -H Club winner here about 1946? Roll Weevil Corbetl Stockton of Col« Ridge as been trying to bring me boll eevils from his cotton field all ear. Most ol them turned out to e wiHotv twig or pea weevils but ast week he brought In the real IcCoy, four boll weevils presutn- bly found In the center ot Mis- issippi county. As we had hoped, the boll weevil rrived here loo late and In too mall numbers to do serious dam- ge. Danger All people who hire Mexican colon pickers are warned to'empty horoughly any cotton pick sacks vhich Mexicans bring with them. There Is a real danger that, they night import the pink bollworm "rom the south Texas area.The pink jolhvorm spreaa to several addi- ional counties in Texas this year and two counties Louisiana. Hake no mistake about It. the pink wlhvorm could be many times more serious here than the boll weevil. Blackout Talk about seeing the eclipse of Lhe moon, I want to know if you :mve seen the eclipse of the sun. The sun has been behind the'clouds so much this year that our crops do not know when to mature. Farmers, don't give up, however. I saw M. P. Brownlee at Dell, Vance Dixon at New Liberty, and Charlie Brogdon, South of Blytheville, sow- Ing vetch and small grains. Mr. Browjilee already has 40 acres of vetch up to a good stand. Henry Hoyt of Leachville called to inquire about mixing proportions for vetch and rye. They are sowing a large acreage of winter legumes as usual. If your credit is still good at the seed store I would suggest to most any farmer that they grow some winter legumes and maybe somft small grain for chciken feed or winter pasture. I would rather get. nitrogen from a winter legume any time in preference to buying nitrogen In a papar bag. Corn Yield* Charlie Brogdon reports that Funk's 711 corn Is giving him his lighest yields in v his variety test; tie best yields at about 70; bushels U. A. Reports On Cottonseed Variety Test FAYBTTEVILLE, 'Ark., Oct. 8— To help Arkansas cotton farmers decide which variety of cotton to plant In 1951, the Agricultural Experiment station has published a leaflet showing how Arkot 2-1 compares with six other popular varieties In six localities in the state. Arkot 2-1, released in 1!H9, was developed by the Experiment Station lo meet Arkansas conditions. Indications are there will lie sufficient registered planting seed this year to meet all demands for the 1951 crop, According to the publication, en'- tUled "Arkot 2-1, The New Arkansas Cotton." the variety has a number of desirable qualities, It Is easy lo 'ick, both by hand and by nachinc. Its fibers are Ipng, strong, and fine. It yields well in comparison with other leading varieties, rias a good gin turn-out, and matures somewha^ earlier than such varieties as Stoneville 2B and Dcl- tapitxe. Results of field plot tests con-, ducted in 1948 and 1049 at the branch stations at Marlanna, Clarksdale, Hope, and Batcsvillc, and on privately-owned farms in Craighead and nenipstead counties, are given In the leaflet. The figures Include acre yield of lint, staple length, gin turn-out, bolls per pound of seed cotton, percentage of the crop ripe at first picking, and money value of. the crop. Varieties other than Arkot 2-1 grown in these tests were Stoneville 2D Del- tapirie. Empire WH, Coker 100 WR. Paula, and Bobshaw 1. Interested growers may obtain single copies of the publication, free of charge, from their county agricultural agent,, or from the Bulletin 4-H Club Youth Reports on Corn Fertilizing Test The value of fertilizing corn Is emphasized by Bulls Denson. 4-H Club member of the Blackwatver community. Eulis, In cooperation with his father, w. lj. Deason, planted two acres of an approved hybrid, Keystone 44. One.acre wo* fertilized with 100 pounds of ammonium nitrate, the remaining acre used as K check plot received no fertilizer. Kulis planted 40-inch rows 12 lo 15 Inches In the. drill tat liV.e some of his neighbors did not get a good stand. This cut the yield some ns did lack of cultivation resulting from too rhuch rain. From the ' acre receiving fertilizer Eulis reported 48,62 bushel* anr from the check plot he gathered 33.66 bushels.
