t fig» Stt« Hyttimffle '(ArW Courier News - Friday, October 14, MM Cotton Crop Is Latest Ever LITTLE ROCK (AP) - A late planting, cool weather and October rains have resulted in what many farm experts are calling the'latest cotton crop in Arkansas history. said that only about one-third of the crop was open on Oct. 1 as showery weather delayed both boll opening and picking. The Department of Agriculture's Classing Office in Little The Crop Reporting Service Rock said that as of Oct. 7 it Poop On Flowers BO GIBSON Associate County Agent If the flowers on your, iris, day lilies, and peonies are becoming smaller each successive year, then probably they need dividing and given wider spacing. Early fall is an ideal time to divide and transplant this group of perennials. To move them at this time of year will insure a well - developed root system before the ground becomes frozen. Each of these three plants ^fjll tolerate some shade but tfill thrive better in full sunlight. For best results, avoid sites that are water-logged or marshy and sites that are near trees and large shrubs. A liberal amount of bone meal placed in the bottom of the hole, when transplanting, will be' ,very beneficial as it will supply needed calcium and phosphorus; two-thirds teacup per plant of peony and two full tablespoons per bulb or rhizome of day lily and iris. ¥ ¥ The most common mistake in peony culture is that of planting too deeply. The crown bud or eye should not be covered more than one-fourth inch and many growers prefer leaving this bud or eye flush with soil surface or exposed. Space three feet apart. Day lily: A little cone should be made in the bottom of the hole to support the crown and allow the roots to extend in a downward position. Set crown not more than one inch below the soil surface. Tall varieties should be set 30 inches apart and small varieties 18 to 20 inches. Iris: Cut leaves back to within. 4 to 6 inches from ground to reduce water loss. Lift with spading fork and make divisions. (About every five years.) Small or dwarf varieties should bs spaced 5 to 6 inches apart and tall varieties 15 to 18 inches apart. Barely cover these rhizomes. For these three plants, a light covering of straw or leaves will be beneficial in holding moisture and for winter protection. Water thoroughly immediately after transplanting to remove air pockets and to maintain turgjdity or moisture content in plants.

The Crop Reporting Service said that excessive vegetative growth in the fields had resulted in considerable boll rot, particularly in the northeast. "An extended period of open weather is needed to minimize this loss and to seed opening and harvest," the agency said. The USDA estimated the Arkansas crop at 1,040,000 bales on Oct. 1. This was unchanged from the Sept. 1 forecast. Get 'Go Slow' Signs For Farm Vehicles FARM NEWS Review and Forecast On Missco Farms By Keith Bilbrey. County Agent The efficiency of the American farmer improves beyond my understanding. There is nothing in the whole world like it. Late figures indicate that each farm worker produced enough food and fiber for himself and 37 other people in 1965. In 1957-59, each farm worker was producing enough for himself^and 23 other people. I did not'see how that could be improved on very much. bushel per acre gave a two year average yield of 29.4 bushels per acre. The one and one- half bushel seeding rate produced 26.1 bushels per acre. The number of wheat seed heads is influenced a great deal more by nitrogen fertilizer than by the rate ot seed per acre. (If you are not going to use nitrogen on your wheat next spring, then I sugest you go ahead and plant two bushels per acre. If you are going to This efficiency is a great (use nitrogen, as you should, JIM WALLACE Assistant County Agent Do you have a "slow moving" vehicle emblem on your , .. . ., , , cotton trailer? Vehicles such as £l ^ m the sun falls on one acre thing for the United States. It releases thousands of workers from farms each year so they can go into other fields of work that they might prefer or be better qualified to do. Yes, I think we are awful smart in Agriculture until, we learn in other ways how inefficient we are. For instance, — do you know how much energy :arm machinery traveling at 2(1 miles per hour on main rural lighways are about one-hundred lines more likely to be involved in collisions than vehicles traveling at 65 mph, according to USDA safety specialists. Often, says the specialist, the problem is simply mat an ordinary motorist does not realize how slowly the vehicle ahead is moving until it may be too late to avoid a collision. The SMV emblem is very helpful in preventing Miese accidents. Motorist can tell at a glance, day or night that the vehicle is slow moving by the size, shape and color of the emblem. The emblem is helpful only If motorist know what it means. It needs to be widely used so the public will learn to recognize it quickly. The Farm Bureau took the lead in promoting the emblem in Arkansas. If you are not using the emblems, go by the Farm Bureau office, or your implement dealers, get them, use them, help prevent accidents. of ground on one clear day? It's equal to three tons of coal on a clear summer day. It's even equal to two tons of coal on a clear winter day. Now, how much of that energy are we capturing? For instance, when we produce 120 bushels of corn an acre do you know how much energy that corn represents? It's equal to about three tons of coal! So, one acre of real good com may capture and convert only about 1-365 part of the suns energy during the year. If we can learn more about capturing and using the energy that comes free from the sun, we may be better able to feed then I would suggest planting five pecks of wheat per acre.) Research has shown that unfertilized wheat, under crowded conditions, produces two or three tillers, but individual wheat plants that are well fertilized may produce anywhere from 30 to as many as 100 tillers per plant. The preferred wheat seeding dates run from October 15 to November 15. Quite often wheat planted after these dates produces excellent yields. Unless a soil test indicates otherwise, we do not recommend fertilizing wheat until next March. If you intend to pasture your wheat, then of course it is a good idea to fertilize this fall. October Cotton Estimates Down WASHINGTON (AP) - The Agriculture Department today estimated this year's cotton crop at 10,688,000 bales of 500 pounds gross weight, down 2.8 per cent from test month's forecast. The September estimate was 1,992,000 bales. The new figure compares with 14,956,000 last year and 14,795,000 for the five- year (1960-64) average. Production was cut sharply this year under a government program offering growers substantial payments for reducing plantings. This program was promoted by the accumulation of a record reserve and surplus supply of 16.9 million bales. The shortened crop is expected to make room for upwards of 4 million bales of this oversupply.
