Some farmers are afraid that labor and production costs will Increase beyond bounds of reason and are actually planning for a little less cotton. Another farmer said, "The only way I will increase my cotton acreage is to buy n nieclionlcnl cotton picker." Many farmers will increase their cotton ocrenee to 75 per cent and a few will |)lnnt 100 per cent of their land In c~Uon. Take Care of Your Ijiml I still say, take care of your land because it takes care, of you. If you are going Io increase your cotton acreage, maybe that Is all the more reason why you should plant more vetch and small grains instead of lew. If you reduce your summer legume acreage (soybeans) It stands to reason you should Increase your winter Jeguma acreage. Remember lhat nitrogen cannot replace your legumes in s farming plan except on ft short, time basis. j Soybean Storage Mr. Crouch In the Blytheville ' PMA Office, says, "The loan rate for farm storage beans. No. 2 grade, is $2.01, less one-half cent per bushel for service fee. 'If commercial storage is used. 11 and one-half cents are deducted from the $2.01 for storage charges. "When on-farm storage Ls used, the PMA Office waits 30 days before taking a bean sample for moisture lest. The loan will be processed in two or three days after the test is taken. On commercial storage there is no 'waiting period.' "Loans will not be made on beans with more than H per cent moisture. Premiums are paid on beans 3'tt.h moisture below 13.7 per cent. Beans below 11.3 per cent draw six cents premium above $2.01. Beans with moisture between 11.3 per cent and 11.7 per cent draw a five cent premium. The premium scale Is graduated accordingly up to the 13.7 per cent moisture." Volume of Storage Do you know how to figure how many bushels of beans the old corn crib will hold? Etflh J. Obtain Hie cubic feet of your rectangular or square storage bin by multiplying length In feet times width, times the average height the beans will be stored. When you multiply the cubic feet figure by 8, you then have the volume In bushels. You can divide the total cubic feet by cme and one-fourth and get the same answer In bushels. One bushel of soybeans occupies one and one-fourth cubic feet of space. To gel car corn capacity you multiply your total cubic feet by .4.
